Thoughts of You
I am so happy to have some time to create and blog. Last week was tiring and emotional, not a wonderful combination, but it is done and that's good!
This card was designed and made over several days........took a few different turns, had to walk away a few times, but I am finally satisfied enough to share it with you.
Stamped the large canvas stripe with distress ink on Letterpress card stock. Then stamped the tall flower image with memento black ink.
Die cut a piece of letterpress card stock with spellbinders deckled oval nestability. Colored the inner edge with a copic marker. Placed over the canvas striped layer.
Stamped the tall flower again on a piece of aqua card stock and cut out the flowers and layered over the first stamped image.
Colored the flowers and leaves with copic markers.
Die cut a piece of the aqua card stock with spellbinders curved rectangle die and placed over the first two layers.
Stamped the bird and colored with copics. Used foam tape for adhesive to add dimension.
Stamped the sentiment.
Placed the card front on a A6 size white card.
Looking forward to the start of a new week, with a better frame of mind and a commitment to myself to think about the words of a song by Carrie Underwood........
"Jesus take the wheel, take it from my hands
'Cause I can't do this on my own, I'm letting go
So give me one more chance
To save me from this road I'm on
Jesus, take the wheel"
I tend to worry too much about things over which I have absolutely no control and am just trying to keep in mind that if I do what I can and quit worrying about those other things I am going to be a lot happier! Give it up to a higher power.
Hope this is the start of a great week for you! Sending smiles your way!
