A sneak peek at our nest



Hello everyone!  I hope you are having a fantastic week!  I am super excited to be giving you an early sneak peek at one of the FOUR new sets being released Feb 1 by Our Daily Bread designs!  This set is called "Nest" and I just love it!  It has great sentiments that would be perfect for a house warming, welcome to your new home, or just every day occasions from our nest to yours!  The image is fun and easy to color!  I stamped mine with Memento Ink and colored with Copic markers. I added a little Flower Soft around the edges of the nest and colored the light green color a little darker with a Copic Marker.


I made the card for the Stamping Sister's in Christ Challenge22 this week which was to focus on the home... whether it be make a welcome to your new home card or decor for the home... it was based on Joshua 24:15 "As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord".  Amen to that!  If more families did just that... we would not be seeing so many of the problems we are seeing today!  I want to thank this week's Stampin Sisters in Christ  hostess, Candace Mitchell for bringing us this great Scripture and challenge.

Come back soon to see more sneak peeks and do visit all the DT listed in my side bar to see what they've been working on!   We will be doing our monthly RELEASE BLOG HOP on Feb 1 so be sure to come back then!!!
