Sent with a prayer

My girlfriend lost her mother a few days ago, I was heading over to her house and wanted to take a card with me so I reached for a Sticker image so that I could get the card done quickly. The tag is also a sticker, I stamped a sentiment onto it.  To make the doily look a little more antique I added a little bit of distress ink.

Penny Black - sticker
K&co. tag sticker
Webster pages - Petite papers
Provocraft scisosors to cut frame around sticker
Our Daily Bread design - Mini tag sentiment stamp
Doily w/distress ink

Here are the last of the pictures from our trip, we came home through Wisconsin and the Northern half was just as pretty as Michigan.

We took all back roads on our trip, very little highway driving, so we went through a lot of small towns, when we hit this one the sun came out and you could actually see some blue skies!

But mostly there were a lot of farms :)

Hope you are enjoying a nice creative weekend,
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and say Hi :)

connie, the card is awesome!! a perfect representation for an "older" mom who probably loves doilies. i'm sure your friend appreciated all the special touches, it looks like it took hours!!

i enjoyed seeing the rest of your vacation pictures, you know me and pictures, taking the back roads always pays off when it comes to seeing the best an area has to offer!! looks like they had a lot of nice autumn color!!

That's a sticker? Gosh, you have some pretty ones, but then I read that it's Penny Black and I know they have the BEST stickers. It looks beautiful with the antiqued doily. I'm happy to see more photos, too. All the gold on those trees is so striking. Love the one with the barn. I can see how the sun came out in that spot just for you. We always take the back roads, too.
