Happy Tuesday, Everyone! Hope you are having a good week! I finally feel more caught up around home and able to concentrate on Christmas preparations. Christmas cards are ready to go in the mail tomorrow and I am headed out Christmas shopping with my oldest daughter, Kate, tomorrow, too!
So for our challenge this week at SOS we are asking for a card or project that has as its main focus a sentiment...no images allowed...just a sentiment and the usual decorations/bling, etc. If you are not sure what I mean by that, go to our blog and look at the DT examples (or you can find them in my sidebar). And here is mine:
Because the sentiment is a Bible verse, I am entering this in the weekly challenge at http://WordArtWednesday.blogspot.com ,too. The verse from James 1 was one the freebies they offered a few months ago. They have a new freebie and challenge every week. And a very talented DT!
List of ingredients used:
Spellbinders dies- "Labels 20" & "Fleur de Lis Squares"

The one tiny pink rosebud was hand-made by a friend and gifted to me a while back (about 12 of them)...I have been saving them for something special! This is the first one I've used! (Thanks, MariLynn!)
Pearls- 4mm Lt. Coffee & 4mm Chocolate from Pizzazz Aplenty
Leaf branch punch- Martha Stewart "Frond"
Most of my stash is a few years old now, but some of it is really, really old because I glean things from Goodwill, and garage sales and estate sales...and when we cleaned out my 87-year-old mother's house I took most of her sewing stuff. For example, the tiny yellow dots in the flower center are from a package of craft supplies that looked to be 30+ years old which I found at a local thrift store.
Thanks for stopping by today!
