Isn't beauty everywhere? I love discovering it as I walk my little one to school each morning, take a drive in the mountains, here a song that makes my heart leap, or get kisses unexpectedly from the bean, or in simple, kind acts from others. Children are filled with it naturally and have a way of making me see life so clearly.
One quick in and out post for you today. I created this card using so many of my favorite things...I love it when things I love work together like magic. I made this using the sketch from the CPS blog this week. Our sponsor is Cornish Heritage Farms and they sent the most beautiful stamp sets called Ornamental ScrapBlock and Ornamental Beauty...I love 'em. I also used some more pretty, pretty things from Prima including paper from their Sew Cute collection...it looks like canvas and has stitching already on it....so fun. The flowers are also from Prima and have been coated in Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels in Rose Tea and Coffee Shop. The chipboard piece is also from Tattered Angels and has been distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink from Ranger and coated with Mica Flakes. I used Melissa Frances paper, cardstock sticker and resin accent as well.
I hope you are all off to a great start this week. I don't know when I'll be back...I may have a scheduled post for you in a day or so, but as of now, I'm packing and my little family and I will be setting out tomorrow for California. I am getting so excited to meet some of you and make new friends and teach my shabby little class at Reflections 2009. I'll be sure to give you a full report when I'm back. For now, forgive me if I've ignored some of your emails.....I will settle into my normal routine when back and will be sure to catch up.
Now, off to clean...for some crazy reason, I have to leave my house tidy before I can go away...I like to come home to it nice and comfortable and ready to greet us :) Loves to you all.
P.S. I wanted to mention that the winners of the 225 Cards & Gifts blog hop for Paper Crafts magazine have been announced on the Paper Crafts Connection blog. You can find the annoucement HERE!
