Inspired by Bedding...

If you were happy every day of your life you wouldn't be a human being, you'd be a game show host. -Gabriel Heatter

For this weekend's Chatapalooza Stacy's challenge was an Inspiration Challenge (she did a nice sketch too, but I messed mine up so I won't post it!) She chose some Very nice bedding as an inspiration piece and I am really happy with what I came up with.

ETA: The background paper is Die Cuts With a View (DCWV) "Once Upon a Time
CS is Stampin Up Close to Cocoa, Bordering Blue and Regal Rose.
The small strip across the middle is a striped paper that came in one of the Basic Grey 6X6 packs...I think Perhaps, but I am not sure.

On a Non-Stampin subject, I finally closed on house that has been contingent since Nov!!!! I am Thrilled to have a friend closer and of course for the check!!! It was a rough deal right at the end, but it is worth it for her and her family to be such a wonderful house!!! AND, as part of a wonderful week I also recieved a child support check, which is just Unheard of for me! Second one I have gotten in 4 years!!! And where might this $$ be going you ask??? Well, of course, straight in to Hope Stamps Eternal!!! I have so many fun new orders in mind!! Come back Soon And Often!! New stuff will start arriving this weekend!!!


  1. Hi Rachel!
    Congratulations on your good news!
    I think your card is absolutely gorgeous!

  2. Gorgeous card, that paper is so pretty as is the bedding in the inspiration pic..WOW! WooHoo on finally closing and getting a check. What a wonderful way to start the week!

  3. How come that check isn't going towards a "child" since that is what it is supposed to be for...didn't you say it was a "child support check"?
