Climb Every Mountain

Well good morning to you.  I had a super time on Sunday with Ang at Stoneleigh.  We had a very long lunch break.  Didn't have a great deal to eat - we were too busy chatting!  I did buy some things but not enough to break the bank luckily.

My Card

White pearlescent  card - Jelly Bean Crafts
Platinum pearlescent card - Jelly Bean Crafts
Image - from internet diecut with Spellbinders Labels 1
Matting die cut - Spellbinders Decorative Label 1
Argyle embossing folder - Die'sire Embossalicious
Sentiment - Computer generated.
Pearls - from stash

I made a 6" x 6" card base from the white pearlescent card.  I decided to split the quote by starting it on the front of the card and then continuing it on the inside. Another card that was extremely quick to put together which was just as well.  I needed it on Monday morning but I was looking for a mountain stamp at the craft show since I have now used all three of the mountain images I have.  Unfortunately I was out of luck but I had found this image previously - just in case! So I had to make this card quickly on Sunday evening.

Well I hope you are all well.  We have been promised rain for a few days but so far it hasn't materialised.  My water barrels are all empty now so I will have to do my rain dance!!!

Take care.

Hi Christine
Aw, I saw this and thought you had found a new mountain stamp but a beautiful image none the less and I'm sure that, with the wonderful sentiment, will be appreciated by the recipient.
I think you will get your rain wish later, in bucket loads by the look of it lol!
Sorry for the lack of food. I thought you usually take sarnies and wasn't hungry myself as I had a sausage batch at 10am lol!
