Stretch Your Stamps–Day 3

Howdy Candies…I’m ooober excited about today’s course for a couple of reasons.  1. I’m an avid hoarder of Alpha stamps.  Not to sure why but I reckon as much as I love Fonts I also love the ability to be a bitty hands on in creating with them too.  2. I have this ribbon that has never been touched for about 6 years now that I’ve loooong awaited to use.  & 3. I was able to learn how to create a really awesome card set for some INCREDIBLE Peeps.  See the interesting thing is this…sometimes in life there is someone or a couple someone's that come along in your life that just happen to stumble there at the perfect moment in time that just gels.  I’d be remise to say that this unexpected blessing happened in a moment that well let’s just say we never thought was ever possible.  I would LOVE to explain it to y’all but to some degree it is inexplicable!  Let’s just say that my inspiration for today’s CTMH (other than the ribbon & punch) July SOTM “Live Out Loud” S1207 is dedicated entirely to the Hague Family.  So without further ado photos:  (To leave a comment, thoughts, suggestions, or feedback - just click the title to this post & scroll to the bottom)

Honestly I think the card says it all about this Family & everyday I’m blessed to know they are only a pebble away.  HUGS to the Hagues’ for just making the world a better place!  I am sooo excited about the diamond ribbon & the fact that the online card class “Stretch Your Stamps” gave me the foundation to think outside of the box & pull some boxes out, literally to get crafty with this ensemble.  You will notice that of course I only have one card today & that Day 2 is missing, that’s only because it is Summer time & I was literally busy doing some summer cleaning yesterday along with awaiting some supplies to do the course.  Today I only have time for this one because I’m totally excited for this afternoon’s trip to Eagle Island.  Thanks for Stamping By…
