{Poster} Tidings of Great Joy

First and foremost, thoughts and prayers to our friends in London and the UK. The images are so sad, so terrifying. But, those images of the Manchester concert... Amazingly inspirational.

Secondly.... and far less significant.... is my relief at having mailed that guy/dad box of cards to Nationwide Children's. These past few weeks, I've been squirreled away CASEing Pinterest cards as quickly as possible to make as many dad cards as possible. It was soooo nice to ink up a Christmas stamp this afternoon.

Without further ado. here's today's card.  :)

Authentique glistening dp; Stampin' Up! gray cardstock
CTMH poster tidings text in Versamark black onyx on dusty blue dp
text image stamped a second time with SU hardwood background stamp in Oxide iced spruce
SU banner framelit, used twice to create rectangular window
gold window frame embossed with Versamark and Recollections gold powder
Really Reasonable Ribbon ribbon, stash sequin

I'm going to share this at the Jingle Belles Oh Hole-y Night Challenge and the CASual Fridays Use Those Pattern Papers Challenge.

Parting Thoughts

Did you see today's Mojo Monday post? Wow! I'm thrilled for Julee and her family. That said, crafting Mondays just aren't going to be the same.

There are just two days left to play along with our Springtime May/June Challenge over at Words 2 Craft By.

That's it for now. Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
