Sing to the Lord {Again}


Happy Monday, crafties. Hope you had a wonderful weekend. I enjoyed spending most of it with my parents, who came up to watch my niece's gymnastics meet. I also did a ton of painting in the master bathroom. It felt great to finish up with the painting yesterday, especially since my parents took my youngest back home with them for a couple of days. Tomorrow, the new cabinets and countertops will be installed, but today, while the older two are in school, I'm free to ...... stamp, of course! I'm ready to trade the home improvement hat for papercrafting again!

Since I haven't created anything new in a while, I'm posting an oldie today. I made this over two years ago during my Splitcoast Dirty Dozen tenure. I'm kind of past the point of being able to show this stuff, as trends and styles change a lot in two short years. Not to mention this photo looks so dark. I guess my photography has changed too! Here we go anyway, since it's been pretty dry around here :)

The beautiful stamps are from Sing to the Lord by Our Daily Bread Designs. I feel so fortunate to have been able to spend a little over a year on their design team in '08 and '09 -- amazing illustrated images and majority Scripture sentiments. I honestly can't remember many details for this card, so I'll just post the supply list below.

Before I skedaddle to my studio, I also wanted to call your attention to some Verve news. First, a new Get Your Diva On Challenge began today. This is your chance at a future guest design spot!! Deadline is Sunday, March 20, 9 pm MT. Also, info about upcoming March and April releases has been posted on the Verve blog.

Have a great Monday!!

What a beautiful creation Amy. I love the colors and the little touch of "bling" you added to each flower.
