You Are Loved


Isn't it funny how some days you see a theme repeating itself? For example, I was scrolling through Facebook this morning and saw a meme that said, "If no one has told you today, You are Loved." Then I made this card and the stamp for the card layout is to use "You Are Loved." And this morning my daily devotional was talking about not showing favorites, that we are called to love all people as God loves them. I just think it's cool how this happens sometimes. It gets my attention and makes me focus more during the day on what God is trying to tell me and how I should respond and treat others during my day. 

This card was made using the June 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit. The elements and sentiment stamps for this kit are so pretty! I love the gold accents.

Have a sunshiny day!

Though We Are Far Apart...

Mike Mike Mike Mike Mike
Do you know what day it is?
Hump Day!

On Monday I decided to get out some CTMH watercolors and try my hand at creating a background on my card for a sketch challenge. 


I'm not very adventurous when it comes to card making. I tend to have a comfort zone that I stay in and enjoy, but I was feeling adventurous and this is what happened.


Close To My Heart watercolors

The sentiment banner overlapped the top
of one of the houses, so I used one of my Micron markers
to draw on the part it overlapped.
(I told you I was feeling adventurous.)
