Today, Tomorrow and Always

Sweet Blog Friends, I’m wishing you happiness today!  Yes, believe it or not, I’m back with another card.  As you can see, I indulged in everything I love . . . pink, pearls, lace, silk and filigree.  That’s why we craft though, right?  Seriously this card is nothing like the inspiration I had or wandhat I originally started out with – absolutely every part of it has been changed out!!   Sometimes that happens – so today, I was of the mindset to just go with it :-)  After I decided to use the lace, I mimicked the shape along the bottom with Spellbinders™ Classic Edges Two and stamped the matching border using JustRite Papercrafts Classic Lace Edges Two.  Since I didn’t want to cover up the wide lace, I cut a medallion using JustRite Custom Nest Oval Medallion Label Dies and framed it out using Spellbinders™ Classic Ovals SM and stamped using the matching stamp from the Botanical Medallions and Banners set.  The sentiment fits perfectly on my two layers using Spellbinders™ Fancy Tags Two.  I finished off by adding an embellishing swirl with Spellbinders™ Twisted Metal Tags and Accents.

    Becca, I’ve been following you for a couple of months now. I just have to tell you that you have the “most beautiful” cards I’ve ever seen. I made my first card in January of this year so I’m still pretty new. I hope that someday I could even come close to making beautiful cards like you. You totally rock!ReplyCancel

    I just love to see your cards. They are so beautiful. I have not been able to do the stamping I would like in the last year as I have been battling cancer and it looks like I will have to start another round. I put my faith in the lord to cure me. Thanks again for your beautiful cards.ReplyCancel

      In reply to D Idlet and Dana – Comments #8 and #9. I don’t have many resources here for lace, so usually it is Hobby Lobby or Joanns – really :-)ReplyCancel

    So very pretty! Been kind of busy with work and trying to squeeze in gardenting after work, and haven’t been commenting like I should because I always look when I get a Feedburner notice and each and everyone of your creations surely deserves a comment, so here I am trying to make up for not commenting on each one. Your work and videos always inspire and somehow also take me to a place of good feelings and thoughts. Thank-you so much!
