I hope your week has been going pretty well. It's been nice for me, but I'm sure that won't last long. Nothing in transportation ever stays the same. School starts on Monday, and I'm going to have a house full of teenage girls for the weekend, so I'm hoping to be able to hide and get a few cards made to add to my stash. Guess we'll see how that goes. lol
It's the 15th of August, and I have a new Use Your Words project for you. Our challenge word is: Believe. For all of the details, click HERE.
I was really trying to focus on making more layouts for this DT, but I couldn't find any photos or papers that really went together, for me. It just wasn't clicking. So, I did what I usually do, and made a card. I LOVE my new Simon Says Stamp Card Kit papers and couldn't wait to dive into them. I think they are gorgeous. I'm very happy to report that I have a friend who sent an email a couple weeks ago, stating that her latest check up shows no sign of cancer, after a year. She is officially a survivor, according to her. Amen! I wanted to send her some happy mail, and let her know that I'm still praying for her. What amazing news though. *happy sigh* When we were hanging out in Dallas, I remember going to the fair with her, just about every year. How perfect that these papers have a carousel on them. And, the Believe stamp set from Verve was perfect for this card. I know she'll love it!
I've combined the following challenges in my card today:
Card Mania #27 - Your Favorite Embellishment (Love my twine!)
Scrapping Everyday Miracles August Main Challenge #31 - An Accomplishment
Creative Craft Challenges2 #16 - Tic, Tac, Toe (I chose twine, ivory, distress)
Ribbon Carousel Challenge #84 - Summertime Fun (hoping my patterned papers will work)
That's all for me. I do hope you'll head over to the Use Your Words blog to see the beautiful projects the other designers have posted. I'm lucky to be on a team with such talented women.
Have a wonderful day!
