Hi there! It's a toasty weekend here....too hot to enjoy being outside, which leads me inside this afternoon :). A couple of cards for you today. The first created using a darling stamp set found in Scrapbook & Cards Today Lemonade Card Kit for the Summer of 2016.
I love the images in this set and wanted to use the darling flower today mixed with my watercolors.
I also love the fonts used in the sentiments found in the set. You can read more about this kit, see the contents, and purchase your kit HERE.
This next card uses one of my most favorite floral stamp sets from Papertrey Ink called Floral Sketches. I've combined it with a sentiment from the Friendship Jar Flowers stamp set and have used the new Noted: Scalloped A1 Die collection as well.
The chipboard and floral paper are both from Bee-Shabby...love their designs and products.
The paper at the top of my card is from BoBunny Press. You can find it HERE at Emma's Paperie.
My last card was created for Emma's Paperie and uses Carta Bella's new Yacht Club collection...love the beach-y, seafood-y theme to this :).
Supplies for this card can all be found HERE.
Have you heard of the MISTI my stamping friends? I've been so anxious to try this tool...I've heard so much about it and am happy to report that one is coming my way! Thank you My Sweet Petunia! I'm looking forward to sharing my discoveries and projects with you all!
Oh how I love this quote and it seems to speak directly to me today. With my daughter just a few months away from being an official teen, my 40-somethingth birthday approaching, and time on my hands, lately I have felt like there is more for me...a greater purpose, something I need to do with this time I have as a mom of one little lady :). I'll bear my heart to you for just a moment. This isn't something I do often, as this topic is one that is very raw, open, and one I haven't yet been able to make "alright" within myself as I'm still searching for understanding and healing. With time it will all come together, I'm sure. But for now, I must find what to do with my time. I had dreamed of having a houseful of little ones...children waiting in line for me to help, love, kiss, hug, comfort, play with, etc. But that day isn't going to come in this life. My arms are a little too empty, but my heart is oh, so full for the "one" special, angel sent to us through adoption. Not a day goes by that I don't thank my Heavenly Father for her...words can't express the profound love I have for her and my sweet husband and the journey that we continue to have together.
