Hold on to Hope

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope you all had a great weekend!
Here we had temps in the 80's Friday & Saturday.
Saturday was a bit too much for me as I am not a fan of hot weather.
Sunny and 70's is my motto!
Yesterday & today we are getting rain. Some heavy and some just showers but nonetheless, it's a gloomy day! I sure hope my lilac bush is enjoying this nice watering and brings me some beautiful lilacs soon! They always smell so amazing!

Today I have a cute card to share using the Hold on to Hope Bundle that is in the Occasions Mini Catalog. It is a million dollar achiever stamp set created by Brandy Cox after she achieved her 1 million in sales. The new catalog that is set to release June 1st 2018 is filled with many million dollar stamp sets and it's very exciting!

When I first saw this stamp set I was immediately taken with that beautiful cross!
Here I stamped the plain cross with Calypso Coral and stamped off first to get a lighter image. I diecut it with the matching framelit. Then I diecut the fancy cross with it's matching framelit and layering it on top of my stamped off cross. The greens are stamped with Pear Pizzazz and diecut out with it's coordinating framelit.

Card Details:

Stamps: Hold on to Hope
Ink: Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz
Cardstock: Calypso Coral, Whisper White
Accessories: Crosses of Hope Framelits, Clear Rhinestone, Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

This bundle is a wonderful one to have in your collection and will still be available until the end of May. It is being carried over into the new catalog but you will no longer be able to get the extra 10% off of it since it will be sold separately. 

My thoughts today...

Lots of puddles out there to play in today!
Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!

This is such a very pretty card, and I really like all the texture in that cross! Now that the rains have ceased, you'll be blown away with the strong winds out there! Mother nature must be perturbed :) Stay warm!

This is just lovely, Wendy. It would be perfect for those clergy cards that you make for your client. Ya think?

Gorgeous! I love the bright colors you used! Stay warm today-better days are ahead!

Very pretty card Wendy! Love the way the die cut goes along with it, really makes it pop. I loved the warm sunny weekend too but agree it was almost to hot! 70's and sunny works for me too!
