Things have been a bit hectic here as my father has had emergency surgery and is still in ICU. I've been doing a fair amount of driving to and from my parents' house, the hospital, and home, which has left me tired and mojo-less.

Right now, this card sums up one of my most earnest desires. Serenity for me and my family accompanied by a smooth recovery for my dad.

The stamp is called Supplication (CH-708-H) and is by Third Coast Rubber Stamps. She was colored with Copic markers, then masked. Next she was diecut and while the paper was still in the Nestabilities die, Memento ink sponged through a cloud stencil to create the sky and the grass. Darker green Memento was added with Fantastix to create a bit more texture.

The sentiment was composed with gold sticker letters. This circle was matted onto gold metallic paper then adhered to a scalloped circle card.

Thanks for visiting today!


  1. Kathi - This is so cool. I love the stamp and what you have done with it.

    I hope everything keeps improving for you and your family.

  2. Kathi, this says it all. A perfect sentiment and a perfect image. I hope dad is doing better and that you will be able to take a bit of a breather soon :) Hang in there, lady.

    PS-I'm going to drop you an email tomorrow ;)
