TSOT#156 Lollydoodle Card

Hello. I am back again today with a card I just finished making. I didn't want to miss the Try Stampin' On Tuesday Challenge #156 deadline.
Paper: Lollydoodle, Slate CS, White Daisy CS (CTMH)
Stamps: Girls Rock, Greatest Love (CTMH)
Inks: Blush, Sorbet, Cotton Candy (CTMH), Black (Versa Fine)
Tools: Circle Stax Die (MFT), Scallop Circle Die (Spellbinders), Cricut Art Philosophy, Dots Embossing Folder, Paper-Piercer, Micro-Tip Scissors (CTMH)
Other: Sorbet, Blush, Cotton Candy Brads (retired), Clear Sparkles (CTMH)

I would also like to enter this card into the Fantabulous Cricut FCCB Challenge #199. This week's challenge is All About You: Use Your Favorite Colors. Our new Lollydoodle paper pack is cheerful and makes me happy each time I use it. I don't think I would miss our brads as much, if we could get enamel dots in every color we carry. Until that happens, I guess I will be digging into my hoarded brad stash. 

This card makes me think of my Grandma. Whenever I think of her, I see her sitting at her kitchen table singing some of her favorite hymn's. Amazing Grace and How Great Thou Art were 2 of her very favorites. She loved it when I cross-stitched and made friendship bracelets as a teenager. I think she would have loved that I am now a papercrafter. 

I'm going to enjoy the quiet until the kids come home. They were both home sick most of last week, so this is my first day in a week getting quiet time to myself. Have a great rest of your day!
