A Blessing For You

It's been such a busy/crazy two weeks for me...and the work just isn't slowing down. Which means the time I have to craft most certainly is! :( But I'm still managing to get a few minutes in my scrap room from time to time. :)

I was determined to get my "card lifting" project finished before tomorrow...and yes, after about two hours I came up with something I could live with. Honestly sometimes a card that seems to have such an easy layout turns into such a challenge to lift!!! I had the basic idea of what I was trying to create from the beginning, but when I sat down to actually DO IT, it was frustrating!

I cut out all the layers, and then fell blank!!! I went on the computer to try to come up with a verse or image to put into the center of my frame, when I came across some word art I was working on last week. I love this particular verse -- it's just perfect for any occasion! I added the butterfly image...and coloured it all green to match with my purple/green card. But when I added it to the card, I sat there thinking, "This card is soooooooooooo flat! It's sooooooooo boring!!!"

I looked around my scrap table...and saw some pre-made daisy flowers. I added one to the corner just to see what it would look like...and loved it! :) I also used up some bling from my stash for the flower "leaves" and added some greeen peals to make the corners just a little more interesting! :)


It's definitely not the fanciest card I've ever made, but it's growing on me. :) All it takes is some imagination...and you never know where you'll end up! :)
