Blessed Influence

All dressed up and nowhere to go!   That was me last night….I had a card ready, a card that I actually liked and no way to get it posted.  We had severe thunderstorms so my internet was out.  Not only that, my cable TV was out too.  So much for a back up plan, hunh!?!   If I can’t get on the internet, then that’s my invitation to stretch out on the sofa and catch up on all the shows I’ve Tivo’d.  Ruh roh, nothing to do…it was a quiet night at my house.

I have a card to share today featuring another of my favorite never used stamps by Wordsworth.  I so loved the design paper that I added some round cutouts on each corner where I placed my pearls – it lets just a little bit more of the design paper show through.  The dotted green ribbon echoes the pattern of the embossed swiss dots.   I have underused my cuttlebug and I love embossing so I was sure to include it in my card.  In fact, I’ve pre-embossed most of my backgrounds so that I have them handy this week whenever inspiration strikes so expect to see more cuttlebug backgrounds this week.  I have to get it out of my system, right?


Stamps: Wordsworth
Inks:  SU Always Artichoke
Paper:  Bazzill; Autumn Leaves – Shangri-la; SU River Rock
Accessories:  Martha Stewart Pearls; Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder; EK Success Punches, Michaels Ribbon


Be blessed!

    Oh this is just lovely! The soft colors don’t compete too much with the sentiment, which is fabulous. I’m going to have to invest in some Wordsworth stamps! Your work is so precise, with meticulous attention to detail. Thanks for sharing.ReplyCancel
