You are one of my sweetest Blessings

Hi friends! It’s Saturday and I hope you’re having a good one! I’m doing laundry, playing with kittens Stormy and Foggy (our two newest rescues this week… just in time for Halloween!), and intermittently playing in my studio! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’ve popped in this afternoon to share a sweet card I created for the new release over at Prickley Pear Stamps! The owners’ son and daughter-in-law have two of the cutest kids ever, and their names are Jack and Lily, and the new Jack and Lily Collection is all about them! I created an adorable and colorful thank you card featuring the Hello Lily stamp set and coordinating Hello Lily die set!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock along with a layering panel and embellishing strip from CutCardStock Raspberry Ice cardstock and layering panels from two coordinating Color Pop digital papers. I trimmed the digital papers to make one panel and adhered the strip of raspberry cardstock at the seam, adhered it to the raspberry panel and then to the card base. Using the Hello Lily stamp set and coordinating Hello Lily die set, I stamped Lily and all her elements on white cardstock, colored them all with alcohol markers and cut them with the dies. This was so much fun… like playing paper dolls as we did as kids! I adhered Lily to the card base, then added her clothes and shoes, and finally her ice cream cone. The finishing touch on the front was the addition of pink jewels.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of the striped digital paper and CutCardStock Raspberry Ice cardstock, stamped the sentiment in black ink and layered the panel on raspberry cardstock.

And one more look… I love bright colors and Lily is so adorable against this Color Pop digital paper!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
