The beauty of dreams


Hello friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day!  I had a wonderful day at my daughter's house, and then on Monday the kids talked me in to bringing them home with me so they are here for most of the rest of this week.  How fun!  We have been fishing, canoeing and watching videos, among other things.  It has however limeted my creative time!

I did manage to slip one quick in one today, using this week's Mojo Sketch.  I used the sentiment from this month's release at Our Daily Bread designs, Dreams.  I also used the butterfly from Butterfly Corner.  I colored with Copics and added some sparkle to the butterfly's body with a Spica Pen.  The base is Papertrey and the designer paper is BoBunny Country Garden.  LOVE this paper! I used Spellbinder's Classic Ovals Large and Floral Ovals.   I used black twill ribbon.  So... quick and easy but perfect for the graduate and we have several coming up!

I also made this for this week's Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge, which is to use any kind of animal, bug or bird.   The Scripture this week is
 “Two of every kind of bird, of every kind of animal and
of every kind of creature that moves along the ground
will come to you to be kept alive.”  Genesis 6:20
Be sure to stop by and read Peggysue's devotional as it will bless your heart!

Another thought for a graduate... or any one for that matter:
Col 3:23
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I love knowing you visited!!!

Beautiful work, even when you've been busy with family! I've just ordered the new Floral Ovals die set, and can't wait to see it in person! Wonderful, Grace!

Very nice card, but I am afraid I always cut my visit to your site short. The song is very nice, but it always the same one, and gets more than irritating. Is there any way t turn it off?

Grace said...

Hi britgirl.... the answer to your question is yes.... YOU can change what you listen to on my blog. The playbox is at the bottom of the page and you can turn it off, or click on the song you'd like to hear... your choice. In the meantime, I have changed the order of songs that play, but I have about 40 people who write asking for the music when I remove it for every one who doesn't like it, so I have left the play box on. Sorry if the song annoyed you!

Yhis is so gorgeous! I LOVE the way you combined the patterned paper with the stamped image and text!
That blue paper, with only the text on it, is that also from Bo Bunny?

...and the person you answered in the comments here about the music on your blog- she will not receive this message....
You will have to answer her via her yahoo-accout when she's got a no-reply blogger account; if not, you can e-mail her via e-mail.
Don't know what I mean? - just e-mail me... I'm willing to help.

What a great sentiment and a beautiful card! I love the die you used behind the sentiment. After I buy my new laptop I need to get some great dies. Thanks for joining us at SSiC this week.
