Hello, Friends! Today I have a card that I made for my sister-in-law to encourage her as she deals with health issues.  I found this Stampabilities sentiment at Hobby Lobby and knew I had to buy it. I can see myself using it a lot.

I used Distress Markers (Worn Lipstick, Peeled Paint and Mustard Seed) for the background, spraying them with water after "scribbling" across the watercolor paper. I heat dried the paper and then embossed the sentiment in white. The DPs are from Close to My Heart. (I don't know the names, but I do know they are old and retired - LOL!) The cardstock base is from my stash as are the flowers. A simple card, easy to create, and my sister-in-law liked it.

I'm entering these challenges:  Word Art Wednesday #134 - Anything Goes; Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes; Inky Impressions #161 - Anything Goes; and 4 Crafty Chicks #196 - Anything Goes.

I hope you get in some crafty time today!
