Always Kind - Take 2 (More)

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments.  I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

Apologies if you're getting bored with seeing these one layered beauties.  I promise you that this will be the last for now.  There is one more card to come featuring the flourish stamp, then that will also get a rest, or you'll get a rest from it, at least.  Grin.

This is the second set of 10 cards I created with the note cards, but split this one into 2 sets of 5, if that makes sense?



Card: White Note Cards
Ink: Bermuda Bay and Pacific Point
Stamp sets: Timeless Textures, Thankful Thoughts and Me = Grateful

Challenges...
#193 AG at 613 Avenue Create
#235 AG at Brown Sugar
#120 AG at Inspiration Destination

Whatever you're doing this weekend, have a good one.  I'll be back on Monday with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.

Faith Is...

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments.  I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

The card I'm sharing with you today is perhaps unbelievably the first I've created with the Detailed Florals thinlits from Stampin' Up!  The reason why I chose the sentiment from Artistically Asian is that as the new year begins, or indeed at any time, none of us truly know what He has planned for us.

That said, I do know that for the last several months and for the foreseeable future, His plan for me is to primarily focus on my writing and withdraw a little from this blog.  Some of you who have been with me for a while might recall that I said something similar last year, and you'd be right!  I did focus on writing for much of last year too, and for the latter part of the year had posts scheduled on here at least 3 months in advance!

I'm not that organized this year.  Yet.  Although I have had some cards ready for a while, this post is actually only being scheduled on Thursday afternoon - and I will try and get a bunch written and scheduled after this one.

It will mean that my shoddy commenting will continue a little as my time really is limited while I try and finish writing the book that I've been working on since mid October (hence all the scheduling).  Grin.  I will, of course, comment on your latest post if you're willing to stick with me and leave a comment here?


Card: Whisper White and Sweet Sugarplum
Ink: Basic Black Archival
Stamp sets: Artistically Asian
Tools and embellishments: Detailed Floral thinlits
Adhesives: Tombow
