Hi All!!  Sorry I have not posted in a while, my life has been rather crazy lately with company and etc.  Has anyone else been having the extreme heat.  It has been over 102 degrees for over a week now!  I am definitely not used to that...

 One would wonder why I would title this card "Just Squeakin by.....". To make a long story short, I had my in laws here for the past week and was unable to join in any challenges or create any cards or projects. I was so excited to get started on yesterday's WT382 Tissue challenge at Splitcoast Stampers. I began soon after they left, however, my progress and ability to finish the card was hindered when I opened my craft cabinet to get my ink (in our new house) only to have a mouse staring at me. I hate mice and have the urge to run when I see one. Which is just what I did...I ran to get my pet cat Zoe who chased the mouse through my cupboards and saved the day. I will be a bit more cautious when getting supplies in my craft area from now on!!

Anywho...I made this for yesterday's WT382 challenge to use tissue at Splitcoast Stampers. I used the faux silk technique and created a tissue paper flower. The Our Daily Bread Designs Flowering Faith stamp set was used to create my faux silk. The sentiment is from the Our Daily Bread Designs Sharing your Sorrow . The flower was created with the Spellbinders Blossoms Three and Peony dies. . The card shape is created with the Labels 23 Grand dies.

Card Recipe:
Stamps:  Our Daily Bread Designs Flowering Faith stamp set was used to create my faux silk. The sentiment is from the Our Daily Bread Designs Sharing your Sorrow .
Dies:   Spellbinders Blossoms Three and Peony dies, Labels 23 Grand
Accessories: May Arts Satin Ribbon, leaf from stash, Gem Brad

I have created this card for this week's Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light challenge which is everything goes with Our Daily Bread Designs.

challenges I am entering my creation in:

 Thanks for stopping by!!  I hope all is well!!
Have a blessed Day and Weekend!!!

hugs and blessings,
