Doggy Sympathy Card

My dear girlfriend just lost her second doggy this past week. The first died earlier this summer.I It is so hard when our precious fur babies pass!! They are so precious to us! I felt so bad for her and had to share by sending this little sympathy card for her and her family. Hoping this card brings them comfort in knowing others care as well.

Spellbinders Mystical Scripture Card

In light of this time of year, I wanted to do something inspiring a sense of mystery and fascination as well addressing how I fear the future in today's times. Here is what I came up with.
Using my Spellbinders Mystical die set which is so beautiful alone, I matched it with old Basic Grey Curio prints and the new stamp set from Kennedy Grace Creations Inspirational Verses. I really loved the verse, "Fear Not".  Such an important part of having faith that God is in control despite what evil men are doing.  I hope it gives you comfort as it did me.
You can view more of the Kennedy Grace Creations inspiration on their blog where you can see this post, HERE.

Lovely Layout

Today's post is of a portrait photo using the American Crafts Hazelwood collection. I used Hazelwood One Canoe Two paper and fussy cut for just the right amount of flowers and leaves to match up with the picture.  The "Lovely" title is one of the chipboard elements, and the mat is a patterned paper of the collection, as well. I will eventually make the second layout to match, using the rest of the flower page, and the other photos. Just thought this was so lovely, I would post it as a stand alone. Enjoy!!
