Crafty Mail for Carol & Giveaway

I have been checking out the daily challenges at Splitcoaststampers all week.  This week's Tea Pot challenge is for a very sweet lady who has had an SCS gallery since 2007 but she is currently going through a tough time.  We are to add a recycled item to our cards.  I couldn't find anything I really wanted to add to my card but I do have a piece of black netting vegetable bag that I placed in my art recycling box.  After the Wrinkle Free Distress background dried I used the netting as a stencil brushing on color with the largest brush in the Life Changing Blender Brush set.  

I am also playing along with this week's Sketch Challenge so I created a tall card.  The (Prayers) sentiment from the Neighborhood set from Picket Fence Studios fit perfectly in the lower portion of the sketch and for the image, I used Dandelion Wishes also from Picket Fence Studios.

Imaginary Extra Credit is going out for those of us who create envelope art.  I am becoming quite a fan of envelope art!  I stamped the dandelion and then added a pretty sentiment from Crafty Mail, one of the newly released sets by Picket Fence Studios.

If you would like a chance to win a set of the three stenciling circles from the new Picket Fence Studios Release just leave me a comment and let me know if you send out cards to people you have never met in person. Leave a comment by 9/20 at 10:00 pm to be entered in the drawing, I will announce the winner on 9/21.
