Echos of Kindness
Colour Throwdown combo when I saw it and knew I wanted to use it. I don't own any Razzleberry yet, so I substituted Rose Red. Even more fun was getting totally giddy about being able to play with my new Verve flowers while making this card!! I just love this gorgeous flower!
This Inkspirations sketch was a perfect fit! I cut and layered the flower, but it seemed a bit dull so I added glitter to all the layers, and to myself LOL! This got me laughing out loud because a few days ago Andrea Ewen was commenting about being covered in red sparkles after putting them on a Verve flower :) We'd be a great, sparkly pair at a Christmas Party LOL! In addition, it brought to mind a line from a great Veggie Tale. It's the one about the story of Shadrack, Mishack and Abednego and the fiery furnace. The line I am relating to right about now is when they have been tossed into the fiery furnace and Mr. Lundt says "Hey boss, there are four of them in there and one is reeeeeeeal shiny".
Julee has done an amazing job combining fonts on this fabulous Mother Teresa quote!! I think we have all benefited from the kind words of others and it is a good reminder to be the one who shares kind words (not just thinks them) and touches the lives of others in ways we may never know.
My son's soccer team gets a bye this weekend and we don't have much planned - a lull before future weekend storms LOL!! Weather permitting, I hope to clean out my summer planters and replace them with winter pansies. In addition, I need to clean up my stamp! Let's just say I've been having a bit too much fun with my new found "mommy time" and neglected the tidy up side of stamping.
Have a fabulous weekend everyone :)
