Good morning friends. You know that I’m mainly a sentiment stamper. Yes, I have my times when I love to color but for the most part, the way words are put together really resonate with me and I think they also resonate with those that receive our cards. It always seems that when you are in the middle of a trial or a celebration, that different groups of words come into focus and have more meaning than during other times. These are my words today :-) I have to remind myself to be me and it doesn’t matter what song someone is singing over there – sing your song and be proud to sing it. So I share those words with you too – sing your own song and don’t let anyone make you feel bad for doing it. The joy is in the song, the joy is in what it means to you, the joy is in how it makes you feel when you sing it. Sing your song.
Thank goodness for my sweet friend Suzanne Cannon with Quietfire Design who penned this quote so that on days like today, we could stamp it; it is from The Words Would Be Very Silent set. This was one of those stamping sessions where everything clicked, I had the right dies to do exactly what I wanted to do. I used A Gilded Life – Baby Buntings as a base to build upon and then added A Gilded Life – Vintage Brocade. One of my all time favorites is Spellbinders Postage Stamps that I made into a frame using Spellbinders Classic Squares LG. Those sweet birds are from the In’spire line, Spellbinders Birds on a Wire.
