The Season for Singing has come!


Hello everyone!  I hope you are having a wonderful week! I have been so busy this week, but it's all good!  We are finishing off our basement, and we got to the carpet installation yesterday!  Whoo Hoo!!!  Now to build a desk and I will become a basement stamper!!! Vicky... here I come! LOL!

Today I'm giving you a sneak peek at two new sets coming out at Our Daily Bread designs Mar.1.  This image is from the set called Happy Easter and it is filled with wonderful Easter sentiments and Scriptures.  On the inside I used a Scripture from the set The Lord has Risen.  I used that because I made this card for several different challenges, including the Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge this week, which was based on Esther 4:4, and the challenge was to show the passage of time in some way.  I also used the Midnight Madness Sketch 42.  I tweaked it a bit in that I made my main panel an oval but this Daffodil just says oval to me!



Card Details:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs March release: Happy Easter, The Lord has Risen
Ink: Memento, Certainly Celery
Paper: DP- Lasting Impressions, Making Memories, Bazzill, GP
Accessories:  Copics, Air Brush, Spellbinders Classic Ovals and Scalloped Ovals, SB Fancy Tags, Sewing Machine, Stickles, Ribbon, ZVA Creative Pearls

I am also entering this in the following challenges:
Gingersnap: 3 Colors I love
Crafty Creations - Stitching
Fussy & Fancy - Dazzle Us (Stickles which don't show in the photo :(  and Pearl Bling)
Corrosive - Stitch it up
Incy Wincy - Add Texture (embossed ovals, scalloped ovals and fancy tags)
Sophistacates - Embossing

I've been checking your blog anxiously awaiting your next creation and you did NOT disappoint!! I just love your work, Grace! It is so beautiful and you are clearly so blessed with talent.

I'm so happy for you to be finishing your basement. I love home improvement projects--my husband and I work on them together and just love doing them. :0) I hope your art room is everything you've dreamed of and more!

Thank you also for your kind words on my blog. I am improving now (finally) and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel now. Woo Hoo!

Thanks again for inspiring me with your beautiful artwork.
