20 Cards in a Tin - Day ELEVEN - Make a Wish

Good Morning crafters! It's another BEAUTIFUL day here in my little mountain town! I'm getting the bug to get out there and do some hiking! We have over 100 lakes in our Trinity Alps and it's on my bucket list to make it to all of them...I've been to 23. I CAN'T WAIT 'til school is out and I can get my kiddos hiking with me! They complain a bit in the beginning, but end up loving it in the end! We have seen things that people living their entire lives here have never seen! It's truly a blessing! It makes me wish my parents had been outdoorsy...so I would have been exposed to hiking in my youth...there are so many adventures out there...just waiting to happen! I need to get my bicycle going too...haven't been on it in over a year! My husband is an avid cyclist so I go for LEISURELY rides (for him) that are kick my butt rides (for ME)! It's that time of the year!!! FIRST I need to get back to bootcamp and spin class...I have no excuses now...so tomorrow I'm back at it!

Ok...that's ENOUGH about exercise! Today is Day ELEVEN of my 20 Cards in a Tin class projects and I want to SHARE with you!!!

This card is a FAVORITE of all the cards we made! It reminds me of my Dandelion Wishes post back in August of 2016. I LOVE to blowing on Dandelions...I know they are weeds and folks take pains to keep them out of their yards...but to me they are FUN!

To recreate this card you'll need the Touches of Texture (dandelion) and Work of Art (background) stamp sets, the Party with Cake (sentiment) stamp set - on sale and retiring, Pool Party and Memento Black ink, Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker, Whisper White cardstock and a few Basic Rhinestones. To stamp the background in Pool Party starting at the top...ink up, stamp off and stamp, next ink and stamp and stamp again, last ink up...stamp off and stamp! The speckles are also stamped in Pool Party ink.  The dandelion and the sentiment are stamped in Memento Black ink and I used my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker for the stem, coloring only the stem without it's leaves! I plan on making many more of these cards using different colors...won't that be FUN?

That's all I have for you today...I hope you are inspired to create...or to make a wish!

Thanks BUNCHES for stopping by to let me SHARE WHAT I LOVE TO DO...WITH YOU!!

Have a WONDERFUL day!
