My serenity is a gift that allows me to live without giving power to pain, grief, anger, depression, loss, bitterness, judgment. I attain it through prayer , forgiveness, and by loving and accepting myself. I hope you can tap into serenity. It has helped me greatly in my relations with my family.
These 10 cards were made for my friend Bev . She has been an inspiration for me and thousands of others. She has been nominated for a Pillar Award for her work at St Stephens and Turning Point with recovering men and women in London, Ontario.
I stamped , inked, and cut out 10 butterflies by hand.

I added dew drops, gems and Close to my Heart buttons on the embossed background.
I highlighted some phrases on the butterflies as well. Click on photo for a closer look at details!

I did get into a slight amount of criticism for doing so but laughed it off as usual. :)
I went with Mustang Purple as an accent colour to some very funky papers along with sorbet paper and lettering. The focal point is created by the straight line of 4x6 photos across both pages. I just pieced in accents subtitles and lettering from that point onward and used light grey pennant pieces for the hand journalling. Hand journalling is fast and doesnt require me to pre plan or print ... too many steps for me for my day to day process.

Just a cute birthday card I whipped up today using some of the latest trends for fall: pennants , some bakers twine, and chevron stamping. I tried out the new double stamp set Its Your Day from CTMH for the first time today ! Inspiration is in all things new !
