Taking the First Step

Hello friends, it's Friday and a fun Friday it is.  Our Spring break officially begins at 4:00 today when everyone comes home.  I treasure these breaks as I am ever aware of the changes awaiting as our children draw nearer leaving the nest. 

 This  "Sweet N Sassy" sentiment from the Faith Clear Stamp Set sums up my reflections perfectly.  Even though our oldest has another year at home he is preparing for the next steps without yet seeing the whole picture or as the sentiment states the "whole staircase"!

I used Spellbinders 3D Embossing Folder ~ DEW DROP DELIGHT for my background.  The folder has deeply etched lines and a beautiful label etched in the design.

I spent most of my time fiddling with the embellishment!  I went with a tulle bow and added some bling along with flowers to blend with the mat. 

I am playing along with the following challenges:
Splitcoaststampers F4A267  add flowers 
  CASology 140: Spring

Spellbinders E3D-020 Dew Drop Delight
Sweet N Sassy: Faith Clear Stamp Set


  1. This is so pretty. Wonderful embossing and those flowers are a nice touch.

  2. That tulle is what really makes this work so nicely. Great saying.... and it made me think of the time I was wearing strappy heels and got confused at the top of three stairs. I finally just stuck out my leg and went for it.... couldn't see the staircase. I felt the cut the straps left in my feet when I hit the bottom though. D'oh!

  3. Love that folder and the deep embossing - really works well with your flowers and tuile. Had to stop by to wish you all a Happy Easter before I go to bed and head off tomorrow. x

  4. Hey Angie!! I love your dry embossing! So pretty. Thanks for playing along with us this week at CASology.
