U is for Umbrella and I got to use a stamp that has not seen any ink. I found this on a clearance sale months ago, and can't ever resist a marked down House Mouse stamp. I also am using this as card # 28 for the 100 cards in 100 days. I am a few cards short of where I should be at this point, but plan to get some catching up done this evening.

the challenge was today, I knew I would have to use one of her gorgeous stamps, and this orchid just seem to fit the challenge perfectly.
I embossed the lighter purple panel and then rubbed white craft ink over the top of it. The image is colored with copic markers, and I added some pretty lace and pearls for the only added embellishment.

It was on SCS that I came to know Charlene and admire her beautiful work. This gorgeous card inspired me and I have that Martha Stewart punch and have never used it like this as a see through type of card. Charlene, your work will still be inspiring us and I have spent this week thinking of you. What a privilege it is to make a card honoring you and your remarkable talent!
Below is the picture that inspired my card. I love white on white cards, so I selected this beautiful white dining room as my inspiration for this scripture from Our Daily Bread Designs. Check out the fun over on ODBD's blog.

Fresh Made Sketch #120 this week. Busy making Valentines to sell to my friends to raise money for the prison ministry I take part in. The flowers are from Flourishes, and the sentiment from Stampin' Up.
Red Wagon Challenge to make a Clean and Simple card. Since I used old stamps and things I have in my stashes, I used this for the 100 cards in 100 days challenge over on Splitcoaststampers. This is my 22 nd card for the challenge (about a fifth of the way through). The heart stamp is from a retired set from Stampin' Up, and the flower is from Verve. I stamped both of these stamps onto designed paper and the fussy cut them out. I attanched them with dimensionals. The background was embossed with this Siffix folder.

The challenge over at House Mouse Fabulous Monday Challenge is to use a HM stamp from your collection that you have not used. I don't know why this one has not seen ink, but it was perfect for a card to add to my 100 cards in 100 days. goal I have set for myself. This is my 21st card since I started this challenge in January. I colored the image with copic markers. The design paper is from Graphics 45 and the ribbon from my stash seemed to coordinate really well.
I embossed the white cardstock base then added a puffy heart sticker and ribbon to it. Pretty clean and simple yet the embossing and puffy heart added a little dimension to it. I love making Valentines and hope to spend the week making and designing many more.

The challenge was to use bears, something old, and something new on the card. The bear stamp is my old thing as is some of the old scraps of design paper I used on this. The new thing is the sentiment stamp which I received yesterday as my prize from the Hope You Can Cling To challenges back in October over on SCS. Ironic, that this challenge was for making cards for those who are suffering with cancer and how fitting to use this for this card I have done because of the sweet memories I will always have of Charlene. I never got to meet her in this life, but I know I will find her at the great Reunion when I too "go home." Hugs to the design team over at CCEE. Find comfort in knowing many of us feel the same loss you do.
