Hello friends! I hope you are all well!
I have been doing a little bit over the past several days to create a card. Never realized before how much strength it takes to make one little simple card but it seems that way to me right now! I have good news though! I am half way through my chemo and am counting down the last 10 weeks with joy, knowing that I'm half way there! Thanking the Lord for giving me the strength to make it this far, and although I am weak and dragging, I am still chugging along, so all thanks goes to the Lord for that!!! I so appreciate all your prayers, messages, emails and cards!!! Thank you!
This card was created with the January release from Our Daily Bread designs, Wishing Well. I had fun coloring it with Copics, and although I started out trying for a masculine card, I did an about face part way through and added some flower soft and pink paper so I guess it really doesn't qualify any more for masculine, but that's how it goes sometimes! I stamped the image with a soft brown ink as I wanted to just color it lightly with monochromatic color tones. However, that too changed as I went along.
Anyhow... the image is cut with the ODBD Double Stitched Circles Dies, and the sentiment is cut with the Pennant Dies. I used just a corner of a die cut from the BoHo Background Die, and I used the Rustic Beauty Paper Collection (not currently available) on a blushing bride mat, and that on a Soft Suede base. I let the design paper do most of the work and only embellished with a tiny May Arts bow, and the flower soft, which is from a Fuschia Mix.
It felt good to create a card this week! I don't get down to my basement studio very often lately, but this was a little bit of happy for me this week! Thanks so much for stopping by and having a look! It's so appreciated!!!
Do Not Fear, for I am with you! Do not be dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Thank you Lord,
