Be Joyful

Hi friends! Popping in with a quick post this week, sharing a card I made a few months ago for a friend at the CT church we've been attending. Since my posting has been sporadic, and will probably continue to be so for the next few weeks, I figured I'd share an older project that had not yet been posted. Stay tuned for newer works..

This week we're heading back to NH, for the final move in to our new home. I can hardly believe the changes that have taken place over the past year...what a crazy experience it's been! Even though this has been a hard transition, filled with many unknowns and sometimes even troubling circumstances, we are so grateful for this time. God has placed us where we needed to be, when we needed to be there, and abundantly blessed us along our journey. We have made some wonderful friends here in CT, ones we hope to stay in touch with throughout our lifetime, we've had extraordinary school experiences that will follow us into NH, and we have really enjoyed life in CT, which is filled with stunning scenery, quaint shops, and friendly people. While I am thrilled to be returning to our home, there's no doubt that a part of my heart will be left behind. So...the theme of this card, be joyful, is definitely appropriate!

This card was created with lots of new Wendy Vecchi stamps, new mat minis, and new stencils. You can find a list to the full list of supplies that I used on my card at the end of the post.

The base of my card features easy stenciling, using the Lots of Dots and Classic Words stencils along with Wendy's Archival Inks (Potting Soil and Watering Can). My oval frame was created using two coordinating Spellbinders dies. The flower pot and flowers were stamped on scrap paper and fussy cut (both from the Blooming Art II set). The bird and heart are both new mat minis. Notice the bird's details? Love that the bird mat mini coordinates with the Put a Bird On It Stamp It/Stencil It set...that is some serious fun! The sentiment is from the new Say It Background Stamp. I finished up the card with some faux stitching and black rhinestones.

That's it for me today! Be sure to check out the links below, where you can find all things Wendy Vecchi! I'll be back ASAP with more projects...just need to unpack my crafting goodies!

Happy Crafting!
