It's a Wonderful Life

Hi friends! Today I'm sharing a card featuring one of my favorite quotes from the new Words of Wisdom set, "Life doesn't have to be perfect to be wonderful." Isn't that so true? Sometimes I get super stressed and feel like I'm jumping through hoops trying to be all things to all people. That if I was just this way or that way, then life would be perfect. But truthfully, life is pretty wonderful just as it is... imperfections and all.  It's a gift and I intend to enjoy mine just as it is.  That's my wish for you as well.


That's all from me today.  Short and sweet as I'm still crazy busy trying to get orders out the door from the amazing response to our Anni-VERVE-sary release and sale!  Hope you have a wonderful day!

  11. Awesome card. I love the colors. I really love the flower, could you tell us how you made the flower? I didn't see the flower mentioned under supplies used.

  13. Love that leaf with that flower - going to have to try the combo myself. Creativity is shut down due to our water main breaking and all the repairs and costs involved...ugh!! Calling our ins. company to day to see if we are covered for any of it.

    I bow in your general direction for having two skewed panels on one card. I have almost become friends (though not best friends ) with a single skewed panel but two is still a push LOL!

    Great colours, use of liquid pearls and the library clip is a lovely touch. THRILLED to hear about the great response to the release, but not surprised. It was a truly amazing one! Happy shipping!!

  17. Ah, this is just beautiful! I really like those colours together, hmmm a combination I might try and actually be able to pull off!

    I CANNOT wait to get my verve stamps! I don't have any yet, but I'm getting loads for my birthday from my nearest and dearest and now I'm wishing the time away until then!!

    I look forward to allthe wonderful inspiration that you're going to provide me with until then :)
