Use your stash and RIC

So we're almost to the end of the week and I'm looking forward to sharing my project using Kitty Bee Design for our next Aloha Friday Challenge...come back on Friday to be inspired!!!

As y'all know I'm a challenge junky and came across another fun challenge by Sweet Stamp Shop where their rules are to use your stash. What a great excuse to use what was lying around my messy...err creative desk!  Here's my semi embarrassing array of things needing to be used...

I cannot get rid of any pattern paper no matter how small...I know I will ALWAYS find use of each inch of it!  So that bit of paper was used with the die cut frame and of course the Sweet Stamp Shop set Get Fit.  I was inspired by the next Runway Inspired Challenge using this photo...

The colors and random images/fonts on her dress was what inspired me to come up with this card...

This card will be for my mom who I need to encourage every once in a while.  My mom suffered a stroke in April which has altered her whole lifestyle from eating habits to actual exercise.  We are sooo blessed the stroke was caught in time and that she will make almost a complete recovery.   I know she gets discouraged everyone once in a while, but think this card would give her a good laugh and remind her of staying on the healthy bandwagon!

Have a great day!
