BLESSED


Hello everyone!  We have a new challenge for you at 

CRAFTING WHEN WE CAN

The challenge is to "Add Hearts" and sponsored by 

Sami Stamps


I had been struggling on how to create this card and then one night this layered white on white card came into my head.  Usually when I get an inspiration for a card I have to make it right then and there or I forget.  I told my sister that and she said that's why you write it down...duh!  I had to laugh but she was right.  Since it was so late at night and I had to get some sleep I wrote it down.  Low and behold I forgot all about it the next day.  Then I got to my desk to turn on my computer and saw my drawing.  OK Beck you were totally RIGHT!  So hard to say that.  Hope you're having a chuckle about this since I didn't tell you when we talked.

Anyway, so I made the card and originally had some flowers on the drawing but I didn't have the color I wanted in the size I wanted.  Isn't that always the problem...you never have enough crafting stock and need to buy more.  So I changed my plan and used some pearls and the butterfly.  I just love butterflies.

I hope you have enjoyed my little story and my card.  Now pop over to CWWC and check out all the other lovely creations.  

Here is a side-note too...I am a nanny for a couple of girls that made some lovely cards.  They are Annie and Nina.  They wanted to enter challenges like I do and hope to win some stuff.  If you can please drop down and leave them some comments.  They would really love it.

Hope you have a fantastic day!

Yes, I agree ideas need to be jotted down when they happen. Good think that you did that and were able to create this beautiful and special card. Good luck, and thanks for playing in the challenge this week at the Mod Squad.

Such a gorgeous card you have here...I love the layered nesting dies. So blessed you joined our bi-weekly Challenge at Word Art Wednesday and hope you join us again for a new Challenge that started yesterday. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word in Isaiah 40:8 which tells us, "The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever."

Have a blessed week,
JO ANN
