Mission Impossible - Possible 03.15.21

Hi friends!

For today's card, you may need some sunglasses 

- it's BRIGHT!

I hope you're having a great start to your week!

I'm one more day into my exercise/weight loss journey and ...

I'm. Tired.


But it's a good kind of tired :)

And ..

it also makes me late for things - like making cards and blogging.

So, let's get into it ...

this card is for the Mission Impossible Possible card challenge

that my fabulous friend, Jeanette, came up with.

Her idea is:

You pick a mystery item and mail it to the others in the group

and we create a card based on that mystery item.

We (Barb, Jeanette and I) had a lot of fun with it last year that we're

doing it again - except we'll take turns chosing/mailing the mystery item!

I was first up this year and mailed out a brand new Pretty Pink Posh

birthday stencil which stole my heart the moment I saw it!

It was HARD to wait to use it but here we are!

Okay, enough ramblin' .....

here is my card, made with distress oxide inks, the stencil

and the super cute stamp set from Your Next Stamp Photo Booth.

I used oxide inks in Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers

since this card will be for a boy and made it fun, cheerful, silly!

And here's the inside:

For the panel that was stenciled with the Pretty Pink Posh birthday,

while the oxides were setting, I spritzed them with water.

It gave it a little more of a mixed looked to the blending.

Barb's card with the stencil is here

and Jeanette's card is here!

This will be a quarterly challenge between us so the next one

will be in a couple of months - and I can't wait :)

One final look - and thanks so much for stopping by!
