TODAY'S Featured Set:
New Mercies is easily one of my favorite Verve sets ever! Beautiful and varied imagery combined with Scripture and sentiments of comfort and hope. A must-have set for both sympathy and encouragement during any difficult time. Truly WOW! I can't wait to see what the other Divas have posted ... hoping today's spotlight casts a wide view of the abundance that's in this set!
For today's spotlight, I wanted to combine the "morning by morning" sentiment with a fresh, sunrise scene. So easy to do ... torn paper hills, a blue gingham sky, a stamped sun peeking up from the horizon, and some fluffy, white stamped clouds. I rescued both the butterfly (stamp from Chicks Rule, die-cut with Verve's Flutterby die) and the heart border circle (die-cut with Spellbinders Heart Circles Nestabilities) from my scrap bin, thinking they fit the theme of God's unending love and mercy perfectly!
Happy hopping! Your next stop is Charmaine!
