A Sneak Peek to bring you some spring!


Hello friends!  I hope you are all doing well!  I don't know about where you live, but here we are having some real winter weather!  I think after the very cold weather, and now the snow, we are all ready to see spring come!  

Today... I hope I can give you just a little sneak peek not only at some spring weather, but also at a couple new stamps coming your way Mar. 1 from Our Daily Bread Designs.  This card uses a new background stamp called Christ the Lord Background.  I also used a sentiment from a new set called Happy Resurrection Day.  

For the background, I used Memento tear drops to dab on black ink for the musical score, and then two shades of green rocked and rolled on to the border.  I then colored in the open design florals with Copics, and highlighted with Spica Pens.  I stamped the sentiment from Happy Resurrection Day on vellum, using Stazon ink.  I tore the vellum, then wrapped around a piece of card stock and added the floral spray.  The ribbon is from my local stamp store and the flowers are Wild Orchid. I also did a little piercing in the corners for texture and interest.  It's a simple card, but I do like how it came out.  I hope you do too!  I hope you'll come back on March 1st to see the whole release and maybe even win some stamp cash!  

Meantime... here is today's blessing from the Word:

Rom. 8:27
"He who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God."  Isn't this a comforting thought?  We often don't know how to pray, but we have an intercessor who does! 

Have a wonderful day!!!

I love your cards. They are so lovely! I view your blog but don't usually comment. This card is especially meaningful to me as that is my favorite Easter hymn. On March 1, I will be placing an order at ODBD designs. Easter is a bit early this year so I must get my cards started! Thank you for sharing your beautiful work.
