Bonus Day with Neat and Tangled

I hope you all have been enjoying my first collaboration week.  It was a pleasure to have them here.  Neat and Tangled really pampered me with providing with their  wonderful stamp sets.  Due to the weather my package was a little late.  So I just completed this card in hopes of participated at the end.

I created the background using the Clouds stamp set and a lot of masking.  The sentiment from that same set was stamped on the cloud on the Just Thinking of You stamp set.  

This card is a great reminder to me that when things are tough that there is always something good hiding in it.  Sometimes, I focus on the dark and not the light.  It is so easy to get wrapped up in the trouble and forget to look around at all the people that lift you up in encouragement.

Neat and Tangled has been a great example of that silver lining.  They did an awesome job this week with their talented design team.  Especially, Miriam Prantner that orchestrated this whole collaboration.  Thank you Neat and Tangled.

Please enjoy this video.

  9. Iliana: a charming card to lift someone's spirits; you've most certainly done so for mine, especially as I've been feeling quite down of late! Seeing you 'in action' with your marvelous MISTI is quite the treat! Thank you for the fantastic video! This collaboration with N&T has been nothing short of fantastic and
    inspiring. My wish list is sooooo long!

  10. Congratulations on the 2016 CHA award! It is definitely changing the stamping world and has helped my mother tremendously. With advancing Parkinsons' disease it has enabled her to continue her love of stamping and card making! What a difference this tool has made to her! There is a silver lining! Thank you!!!

  11. Beautiful card! I am saving my pennies to purchase a MISTI. I have a tremor in my hands which makes it difficult to get a good stamp. Of course, I make the most mistakes when there's no room for error, so I think that the MISTI would be a perfect addition to my crafting arsenal.

    Wishing you a magical day!
