Happy WOYWW to you, dear friends! Thanks to everyone who took the time to leave a sweet comment on my Frosty-Inspired Real Friends Last Forever
card! I am overwhelmed by the response to my first creation of the New Year!
Are you ready for a touch of Spring?
What Did I Create This Week?
This week, as I sift through my stash and let my imagination run wild, I am drawn to things that signify new life and the promise of spring – even in the dead of winter.
- Bright colors bursting through the drear of dark winter days.
- Flowers blooming in the midst of ice-covered fields.
- Caterpillars transforming into butterflies.
- And the Word Of God, which stands forever – a lamp, a light, a shield.
What I feel inside bursts forth in this week’s beautiful and inspirational card – Refuge and Strength.
The card incorporates a combination of new (store-brought) and new-to-me (stash) items as well as a few oldies but goodies:
- Fabric – Michaels/Recollections (New – Love)
- Scotch Designer Tape (My New Favorite Product!)
- Chatterbox Happy Day Dimensional Stickers (Die Cut, Glitter / New From Stash)
- SEI Jocelyn 6 x 6 Paper Pad (New From Stash)
- Vellum Quote (Old/Scrap From Stash)
- Cardstock (Old/Stash)
What do you like most about this card?
