A Flower for You and Cards for OWH

Hi Peeps,
Hope you all had a GREAT weekend! I'm so happy. I went to the doc yesterday to get my blood test results for my cholesterol. I couldn't believe it when he it's 150. Woo-hoo, skip, jump, cartwheels. This is great because at one point a couple of years ago, it was up to 249. Sure scared the heck out of me. Been eating a LOT of fresh veggies and fruits.

Anyhoo, got to ink up a Sarah Kay digi this weekend and made 6 cards using the same image. I'm really getting hooked on distressing. For this card, I distressed the butterfly and leaves...just love the effect.

Other supplies used were Copics, Spellbinder dies, DP by DCWV, "Friends" stamp by Lockhart Stamp (got it at a garage sale), leaf punch by EK, roses by Prima, cherry blossom by Wild Orchid, butterfly punch by Martha Stewart, pearls by e. and embossing powder.

The following cards are for Operation Write Home (OWH) using the same image. Since there are guidelines to follow such as no small embellies that may fall off, I kept them simple.

The "Thinking of You" stamp is by Stampin Up.

Alrighty, hope you have a WONDERFUL week. Only 6 more days before I pick up my Sister Stamps stamps. I'm READY. LOL.
