This week our recipient is Lynda, aka Hotwheels. She is a long time member of SplitCoast - using a wheel chair - hence her screen name Hotwheels! She enjoys doing what she can with cards, but needs assistance in carrying out her card ministry. So we are creating cards she can use to send to "her kids". This pre colored digi by Beccy seemed perfect!
I tried a couple of new techniques. I do not have stencil paste, but I read that Spackling paste mixed with chalk would work. Hubby had a rather dried up jar of paste, but I added a bit of water and powdered chalk - created a piece with a blue design. It seems to be holding up - looks rather like suede or flocking IRL - .see the corners and hearts. Oh, yes, the bg is inspired by Jenny at Frilly and Funky - but my attempt is far short of hers. I cut pieces of a number of scraps, then sprayed with Glimmer Mist.

Oh, yes, I think I get dessert - the inside verse is Psalm 115:15.
