7/1/10 Edited: I posted this last week for TIOT #73... The fab sketch is from Chelsea at CLP Challenge. Won't you join us this month for CLP Sketch Challenge #27?
Hey There! I've been working on a couple of things in my life lately. Well, actually it's more like a ton of things, but I can only do a little at a time! One thing is that I really really want to be on time. I have a very bad reputation for being late - ugh! I'm sure there is a reason why I think I shouldn't be early, but this late thing isn't working for me anymore lol! God is healing me from the inside out and if He says that it's time to change, He surely will get the job done : ) The other thing is that I've been working hard to get ahead on all my DT responsibilities. I am happy to say that things are rolling along pretty smoothly - a few bumps in the road, but for the most part, I am pleasantly surprised lol! So, if you are feeling down about not having everything all together, let me tell you... first, you will never have it ALL together - but there IS hope! It really does get better!!! Be encouraged, my friend... God's mercy is NEW every morning!
"Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, "The LORD is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him."
And now, for my card today : ) I bet you thought I'd never get there hee hee! Today is another Try It Out Thursday. This week the Try It Out *T* girls were challenged to use weaving in our projects. If you've been following Susana's Store Blog, you've noticed that there is now two Try It Out days. The first is Tuesday, the second is Thursday so you get twice the inspiration!
A Puppy is Love' by Victoria Case for SCACD - Hearts and Hugs Summer Collection. This is one of my faves cuz it has the adorable lil' puppies. I LOVE doggies!!! Can you believe that there is not one drop of Viva Decor Glitter Liner on this card? LOL! You know how much I adore bling! I did use a couple of products... One is the Pearl Pen in Ice White which I used on the white scallops. This is such a great product! The color really is 'pearl-like' and saves a bunch of money! Instead of buying package after package of pearls, I just use this : ) It's the same size as the Glitter Liner which is a big 25 ml bottle. It also comes in cream as well as tons of other colors!
The second product I used on this card is Diamond Glaze. Can you see how her eyes seem to shine and stand out? I LOVE this product toooooooo!
Here. I used my rectangle and scalloped rectangle nesties to cut out and layer the image.
Simon Says - Friends
Really Reasonable Ribbons - Border
