Update Tuesday January21, 2020 - Power Of Hope


How are ya?!  Welcome to today's Update Tuesday blog post!  It has been a crazy week for me.  A crazy two weeks actually but the last week has been a little bit "more". LOL  Long story short, I have a weak immune system and have been on IV antibiotics for 5 days...I was able to come off from them today, hallelujah!  I absolutely hate the whole process, ICK!  And believe me, I have had my fair share, and probably your fair share too, hahaha!  Today was the last day, but the meds just wear me out and make me nauseated.  Then I take the anti-nausea med and then I'm tired.  It really is a vicious cycle.  Here's to good health and to me being able to type up instructions for today's card.  😂

Stampin' UP!® shared these beauties made with the Power of Hope Bundle.  If you haven't seen this bundle, it is in the current Sale-a-Bration catalog which means you can earn it with a qualifying order.  You would need to spend $100 to earn this bundle.

Isn't it pretty?!  I think it pairs well with the My Meadow Stamp set but also creates gorgeous cards all on it's own.  

 Here is the Photo that Stampin' UP!® shared with us this morning.

On the left they even used the Stone 3D Embossing Folder with the Wildly Happy Stamp Set to make the adorable Elephant card. 

 For the cards above I have chosen to focus on the top card with the lady in the Kimono.  I am not positive that the lady in the Kimono is a Geisha, but that is what she reminds me of.  So I am going to call this card the Geisha Card.

I appreciate you being a part of my Stampin' Journey!

I live & love to inspire you!
