Hello Delightful Friends and Family!
Wow, another week has flown by and it's already late Wednesday evening so another week is half over. I am learning to be thankful for everyday because this life is so fragile. The verse on the card says "Give thanks to the Lord for He is good; His love endures forever" and that's what I'm doing: Giving thanks in the midst of this busyness! When I'm thankful to Him, I find a peace and even a rest within that God is so faithful to provide. He is so good!
This first card is a Clean and Simple design that was so quick to put together. It's one layer, one stencil (Stampers Anonymous, Layered Tree), one stamp (Taylored Expressions) and two inks (Distress Ink, Bundled Sage and Memento, Rich Cocoa). Fast, fast, fast! The second card is the same basic card but "dressed up" a bit.
I'm entering the 2nd card in two challenges:
Word Art Wednesday (Anything Goes #103)
Chocolate, Coffee & Card Challenge (Autumn - not Halloween #50)
I've stenciled the leaves with 2 colors (Bundled Sage and Wild Honey) and used those same colors to sponge around the edges.
Inside of the 2nd card (you can really see the natural fibers on the inside, but the picture doesn't do this justice)
Both cards have the same base and it came from the lss, it comes in a package of pre-cut card stock (A-2 size, desert storm color with lots of natural fibers throughout) with matching envelopes.
Here are the ingredients I've used:
Stencil: Studio 490 Layered Tree (Wendy Vecchi - Stampers Anonymous)
Stamp: Taylored Expressions, Thankful set and Falling For You)
Inks: Distress Inks, Bundled Sage and Wild Honey; Memento, Rich Cocoa
Card Stock: Bazzill
Copics (to color the wing and beak of the bird)
Button: Favorite Findings (Nature)
I cut the small green flags from the matching green card stock.
Here are some little ones that I'm thankful for!
