Amazing technique

Wow has it really been 11 days since my last post! Last week is a blur to me! My hubby and I celebrated our 6th anniversary on Feb. 2. Feb. 3 brought heartache. A special friend of mine passed away Sunday and its been alot to deal with. I spent most of the last week with the family. They are like my 2nd family and losing Dale was hard on everyone. It would take 2 days to tell you about this past week but Dale was loved and will certainly be missed.
I told my hubby last night how long it had been since I stamped and I was determined to get the kids off to school today and have some good ole fashioned stamping therapy! Todays technique challenge is one I havent tried yet and to be honest its one I didnt want to try but Im glad I did. I actually really like the results of my ink, spray, & smash layer. Im bad about not doing challenges on something I think I wouldnt like to try but Im trying to change that! I got some new goodies 2 weeks ago and havent been able to ink them up so todays challenge was perfect! I used my new Amazing set and pretty petals background for my card. The colors I used were lavender lace, apricot appeal, and certainly celery. I used Beate wsc34 for my layout. Have a great day!

Shannon, So sorry to hear about your friend. Death is never easy.
I will keep you in my prayers.

Dh and I just lost one of our best friends back in Oct. So we know what you're going through.

Take care....and I'm happy to see that you're creating again.
