Embracing Life

Today's first card share is one I did for the Clean and Simple Sketch Challenge this week, I used more this gorgeous paper from the cottage wall collection, really, isnt it beautiful? Of course, I had to break out the Embracing life flower again, I am really enjoying this set!











When I first saw the Circle Circus set, I didnt really see the appeal. However, as I started to see others creations, it started to grow on me a little bit. If you have been watching, the new In-Colors can be very bold! I usually try to tame them a little bit, but for some reason, on this card, i wanted Big and Bold, so I used my two favorite Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo. I tried to use something similar to the depth of view technique from TJ. I saw on someone's blog where they used something like a depth of view resist technique, so I gave it try and this was my final take on it. The Sentiment is my favorite one from the On your Birthday set. Isn't it fantastic? The phrase Live, Laugh and Love, always makes me feel better when I am down.

Hi I just spent some time going through your blog. It was brought to my attention this weekend that they have finally closed our group for the Sister Hood of the Blogging Stampers group #28.

I had almost forgotten about it since I signed up so long ago, but anyway as it is closed now I wanted to hop on over and say hi to all my fellow Stamping "Sisters"

I have really enjoyed your creations and look forward to seeing more very soon!!!
