New blog series: 5 days of ... (Day 1)

Hi friends!

Today's the day!  Today's the day!
It's Day 1 of my summer blog series kick-off and I'm really excited ♥
For the next 3 weeks, Monday-Friday, 
I'll be sharing a summer series of cards that I call  "5 days of ..."
Each week, the theme will be a surprise until each Monday's reveal, like today :)
So in addition to creating 5 new cards a week,
I hope this will be a chance to get to see more in depth views of 
my crafting style and creating in the spirit of inspiration and sharing!
From different techniques to tried 'n true, 
from my had-to-have-it to the what-was-I-thinking,
I hope to cover a little bit of something that will be fun!

 For hanging out with me during this (hot!) summer series,
I have a coordinating giveaway!
(*see details below)

This week's summer cards series theme is: 

The Alphabet Game!

It's as easy as 1, 2, 3 - A, B, C to make a card with just one letter!
I used random.org letter generator and the letter W 
was the lucky letter for my first card.
Ohhhh!  I have a couple of stamps/sets that start with W.
Since the purpose of the series is for me to do something differently,
it had to be a stamp/set that I hadn't used before!
 My sweet little Wplus9 stamp/die set called the Get Well Gang
 was the perfect choice since I needed to make a card for the Crafters of Faith.
I saw it, bought it, and poor thing hasn't made it out of the box .. until now!
I chose this particular stamp set because our cards were based on
a scripture of Psalm 3:5-6 "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart"
I was inspired to create a card of healing and faith pulling me
through my husband's recent emergency surgery and hospitalization.
Indeed I felt His presence and love during a time of trial and trusting in His will
has to be automatic ♥

It was also hard to resist those cute little critters
and the darling doctor and patient, mice and get well cheese!

Day 1 - check!
W = get WELL with Wplus9!

It's a good thing random.org is exactly that ~
After W is X and I'd be scratching my head trying to figure that out, LOL!

I hope to see you tomorrow!
Thanks for stopping by!

Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
