Well, Duh

Before we get to today's card, let me thank all of you who are supporting the Cox family with a donation or prayers. Ann is such a great person, hardworking and dedicated to her family and her students. Kevin's health situation is serious as he recovers from triple-bypass heart surgery with just one barely functioning kidney. Dialysis and transplant are likely in his future.

As Kevin has always been the primary caregiver for their little son Liam and obviously can't do that now, Liam has started daycare for the first time. Medical and daycare expenses are a hardship for this family, and even the smallest donations are a blessing to them.

If you missed yesterday's post, consider visiting it and checking out the other blogs on the Blog Hop. There are fabulous cards to see and prizes to be won (for leaving comments and/or donating), and on the final stop of the hop, a card gallery you can add to! Just make a card of encouragement for Ann, Kevin, and Liam, and link to it using the InLinkz button on the CAS-ual Fridays' blog post!

Now for today's card, which was completely inspired by a card on page 15 of the new Hero Arts 2016 catalog.

You might be wondering why the title of this post is "Well, Duh." I totally planned and made this card for the OLS challenge this month, and only after I added the last bling did it dawn in my feeble little brain that the sentiment is on a SECOND LAYER. Seriously. You can't enter a two-layer card in a one-layer card challenge. It simply isn't done.

But 'tis still a cool card.

stamps: Hero Arts
paper: Papertrey white
ink: various dye inks
accessories: rhinestones, craft foam, scallop scissors to slightly round corners of raised panel


  1. adorable. you could enter it into the hero arts flower challenge -- money is at stake!!

  2. Way cool card. One or two layers, it is still way cool. (I'm using the power of the one who hears my prayers to ask for healing and comfort for the Cox family.)


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
