All Things Bright and Beautiful




Hello everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!  I certainly did!  I was so excited to be able to get to play in a couple of challenges today as well!  This is for Inspiration Challenge 212 on SCS and also for MMSC33.

I used this cute rug for my inspiration from Posh Tots.  My daisyd's designer paper immediately came to mind.  This site had the cutest kids things, so I decided to give you a sneak peek at a new Our Daily Bread designs set to be released Jan. 1 called "Noah's Ark".  It has lots of different possibilities in how you use it so be sure to check back on Jan 1 for the Our Daily Bread designs blog hop, when three lucky hoppers will have the chance to win this set or another set of their choice! 

I used the sentiment from Noah's Ark, stamped in Our Daily Bread designs Rasberry Ink on Papertrey White cs.  My base is Bazzill and the dp is daisyd's.  I used a QuicKutz Flourish frame die cut for my elements to create a square around the sentiment panel to fit the sketch, and the sentiment itself is cut with a Spellbinders Label #3.  I added ZVA Creative pearl flourishes, K&Co Paper Ribbons, and MS butterfly punch outs from the same paper.

Thanks so much for looking!  See you at the Hop on Jan 1!!!

Congratulations on being the Guest Designer over at MMSC. You are a very talented crafter and I really look forward to see your projects as Guest designer!

Your pink card here is so beautiful, so tender and light. It really makes me think about long, hot, lazy summerdays. It puts a smile on my face. And that is well done because there is 25 cm of snow and -10 degress Celsius ouside.

Happy New Year Grace! And jet again congrats on being guest designer, you really deserve it!

Mvh
