Our Hope

Hello friends!  I have  a card to share today using this month's ODBD release of two fabulous dies: Quatrefoil Pattern, and Quatrefoil Design I cut these out of antique gold card stock and mounted over some pretty butterfly paper by K&Co.  I then stamped the ODBD Two Step Butterfly, cut with the custom ODBD Grunge butterfly die, and colored that with sponge daubers, adding a little bling.  Since the butterfly is a symbol of hope, I chose the word hope from the Words of Faith set, and then framed that with the Antique Label Designs set, and cut out with the ODBD Custom Antique Labels & Border die by SB.  The bow is a double made with May Arts silk.

Easy and quick... and that's what we all love, right?  These dies make the wow factor so easy to achieve without tons of layers and added "stuff".  I am LOVIN them!  :)

I am entering this in  Word Art Wednesday #74-Anything Goes, CCEE Stampers -  Things with Wings, Crafty Ribbons -  Anything Goes with Ribbon, Creative Moments -  Things with Wings, Divas by Design -  Spring Colors.


I have special family time coming up this weekend... and time with the grands, so I'm a happy grandma!  I trust that your life is filled with Hope... Our hope is in the Lord... and it's not just a hope, if we are His, it's assurance!

Romans 15:13
Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
 Blessings,

Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year
old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab
inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
