Daydream Medallions

Hi everyone,

Yes, I have a card to share with you today.  I finally inked up the Daydream Medallions set.  I know ... why did it take me so long?  I'm guilty of purchasing new sets and then setting them aside.

I love all the layers and how easy it was to create the medallions using the Floral Frames Framelits dies.  The images were stamped in a combination of VersaMark with white embossing powder and Regal Rose ink with clear embossing powder.  Each layer was popped up with dimensions.  A Something Borrowed metal embellishment accents the center.

The background paper was embossed with an Anna Griffin Rose Pavilion embossing folder.  Thank you was stamped and embossed in Regal Rose ink on a piece of Whisper White paper.  I then used an oval punch.  The oval was adhered to a Spellbinders Fancy Tags die.

Lot of layers!

So 'girly' in rose and white for someone very special.  A while back a relative sent me some old photos of my Mom & Dad.  I was so thankful and grateful that she would do this for me.  I offered to pay for the postage, but she wouldn't hear of it.  I knew I needed to create something special to show my appreciation.

Wishing you a peaceful and cozy Sunday.

ART Skin Care System

Hello friends,

I think a lot of people are creatures of habit in the sense that if they find something that works why try something different, right?  A few months ago my face was feeling dry and I contributed it to the winter months and not the products I had been using.  Hmmm ... I started thinking perhaps it was time for a change.  I had been enjoying my new lavender lip balm, which I shared with all of you, so I decided to try the ART Skin Care System by Young Living.  ART stands for 'Age Refining Technology'.  To me that didn't really mean a whole lot I just wanted something that would hydrate my skin more.

OMG!  Talk about a change - I could kick myself now for not trying these products sooner.  ART products are formulated with plant-based ingredients and essential oils.

This is how the products are packaged.

The set comes with a Gentle Cleanser, Refreshing Toner and Light Moisturizer.  Basically, the same items I was using before by another company.

Oh, the boxes and bottles are so pretty!

Gentle Cleanser

The cleanser washes away impurities with a soft, gentle lather without stripping your skin of natural oils.

Refreshing Toner

This toner is the perfect blend of essential oils.  It doesn't sting at all when applied and helps balance your skin's natural pH.

Light Moisturizer

A very light moisturizer that helps retain proper hydration.  When applying it does not feel oily at all - just what I need!

Some of the essential oils you will find in the ART Skin Care line are Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood, Lavender and Melissa as well as Aloe Vera leaf juice.  All the things you need to feel clean, refreshed and silky soft.  Not to mention it smells great!

So I definitely need to be more open minded and try new things  :-)
