Good thing I die-cut a bajillion of these on the Big Shot, because I am having so much fun making the trendy little dimensional roses by combining the Swirly Bird stamp set and Swirly Scribbles Thinlets. I love the casual, flip little flowers--so perfect for summer!
Started off this craft session trying to copy the card on page 152 of the new 2016-17 Idea Book & Catalog, and you can definitely see similarities, but of course I ended up making adjustments (and boo-boos) along the way. Still, not too bad for a first run! Can't wait to have more time to play.
I love this sentiment (from the new Helping Me Grow stamp set). As I was making these cards I got to thinking about all the people who have helped me grow over the years. Boy, is that list long! If I started sending cards to all the people who have encouraged me spiritually, emotionally, physically, mentally--I'd be making nothing but thank you cards from here until next Tuesday. When's the last time you sent a thank-you card to someone who helped you along the path? Maybe their assistance was something purely practical--a last-minute baby-sitting request--or something more intangible, like a well-chosen Scripture verse shared at just the right time.
Whatever the person or situation that popped into your head just now, I encourage you to act on that impulse, follow through and send them a card. There is no time like the present!
Happy Crafting, my friend!
