And don't forget to leave a little comment love as you hop about for a chance to win some shiny NEW Verve!


I started with the fueled by Jesus sentiment from Fill My Cup, stamped onto a Flourished Tag Die. I chose a strip of paper that said be fearlessly authentic. Love this for an encouragement card. I also chose to paper piece the little cup with a strip that says Keep Moving Forward, because who doesn't need a little push to do that?  I cut the finished cup out with the Happiness in a Cup Die Set.


Down the side I stamped the give me Jesus sentiment a few times in sahara sand and added the little sun and cloud image at the bottom.  I finished off with some burlap, a bit of distressing and some jumbo rivets from my stash to give off a rugged look that could work for either a girl boss or a guy boss. {grin}

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

  26. LOVE the "be fearlessly authentic" statement as it is so important to be just that and many are scared to do so not realizing the freedom it brings when you are (the perfect sentiment for a future set...hint, hint LOL). Great mix of burlap with the jumbo eyelets (must dig mine out!) and fabulous use of the sentiment down the side too! Classic Julee creativity and gorgeous card :)
