A sneak peek and Loving Memories

Hello my friends!  I'm so sorry I have not been posting very often, but summer has brought many opportunities to be busy in other ways, and my blog has had to take a rest for a bit.  However... I did want to give you a quick sneak peek of what's coming your way July 1 from Our Daily Bread designs!

This card is made with a new set called Loving Memories.  I love the sentiments in this set, and the pretty Calla Lilies are perfect to go along with these sympathy sentiments.  Of course, sympathy cards are our most difficult cards to make, but when we do.... Our Daily Bread designs has the tools you need to do it well!  This is timely for me as well as I need a sympathy card for a dear friend.

Card Supplies:
Stamps: ODBD Loving Memories
Ink: Memento
Paper: Papertrey cs, Prima Sun Kiss dp
Accessories: Copics, MS Ribbon, Want 2 Scrap pearls, Sizzix EF, Cheery Lynn Victorian Romance Flourish, Stick Pin (gift from a friend), sewing machine, dimensionals, copics

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Crafty Creations -  Embellish It Use 3 Different Embellishments (ribbon, pearls, stick pin), Little Red Wagon -  Sentiment as main focus, Paper Shelter Challenge -  punches/dies, Stampavie and More - lots of flowers, WordArt Wednesdays - use an encouraging uplifting sentiment or the free digi verse on site, Party Time Tuesdays -  Anything Goes, Craft Your Passion - Things with Wings Lollipop Crafts - Flowers in Bloom Paper Playtime - Anything Goes with Sentiment, Truly Madly Crafty Challenges - Monochrome

Just so you know.... sympathy sets are only a couple of several sets coming July 1!  You won't want to miss this release!  The bread sticks are working hard on our blog hop projects for you... we hope to see you then... July 1, 8:00am EDT!

This is just beautiful, always your creations take my breath away! Like you, I've been very busy with other things and haven't been very creative with paper lately. Spending next week with our daughter and family at Folly Beach in S.C. and excited to be with them.

Hi Grace,

I am so glad to be visiting your blog today. This is such an amazing card! I love the sentiment and the pearls surrounding it. The lilies are colored in such an amazing way, they really are fabulou. I love the flourishes you have on here, and must check them out. The pin is a wonderful addition to bring the green out.

Dearest Grace I am so sorry that you will be missing your friend. I will pray for her family, and of course for you, my friend.

He IS Able!

This is beautiful, Grace. I hope the loveliness of the card will be a bit of a balm for the one who receives it. As well as knowing that a part of you, and I'm sure many prayers, wen't into the making of it.
