I've been having some extremely hard days... I received some excruciating news about someone that I have no control over. BUT, I have Jesus by my side encouraging me and showing me step by step how to heal. I'll be going back to counseling (I'm a veteran by now lol!) hopefully soon and I KNOW that Godly Wisdom is going to help in many areas of my life!
As Jesus walks me through this next phase of my life, I'll be posting some insights. I KNOW that there are quite a few of you who struggle with depression and/or anxiety. I've got to tell you that I'm the Queen of this type of struggle. I'm definitely NOT where I used to be...praise God...but I DO know very well the darkness that exists in that place!
As always, feel free to skip over all this :) Does not apply...blah blah blah lol! Take what you need and leave the rest!
Let's go onto fun, crafty things!!! Inky Impressions has a new challenge up today. It's all about Buttons. I love buttons!!! You know me...I've got to have some in EVERY color LOL!!!
I've used the adorable, Angelica Crafting. She's colored up with copics - LOTS of copics lol...Skin - E25 E11 E000; Hair - YR24 Y26 Y23 E50; Pinks - R89 R83 R81 RV00 and RV04 RV02; Reds - R29 R27 R24 R22; Yellows - Y15 Y13 Y11; Pants - B97 B95 B93 B91 B00; Misc. - E33 E30; C7 C5 C4 C2 C1; Chalk for her cheeks.
To create the button behind Angelica, I simply die cut and embossed two circles, punching out the holes in the center with my huge hole punch and eyelet setter... duh... I can't remember what it's called hahaha. Anyway, don't look too close as this tool ate up my eyelets. No joke - they used to be white lol.
The cute li'l scissors charm is adhered with Glossy Accents. I have a confession to make... I never really believed that Glossy Accents would hold such an embellishment. I decided to give it a try though - guess what? I'm a believer now :)
I got brave and wrote the sentiment by hand! EEEK! Maybe could have used a thicker pen... Oh well! I am soooo pleased to be able to emboss a whole piece of 5"x5" cardstock now! I used my new Cuttlebug really BIG embossing folder :) It's called Polka Dot Page and is 5.5" x 12". I also have Damask Brocade which is very pretty.
Bling Bling Bling!!! Lots of Stickles on this card. LOVE ♥
