Good morning everyone... I thought it was time to update my blog with a new post. I have no good excuses for being absent from my blog other than that I've been taking a bit of a crafty break and doing other things. What kinds of things do you find inspiration in, other than online?
I picked up three of these sweet journals at TJ Maxx, along with a set of three coordinating pens and was inspired by the colors and design to create 3 gift sets. I found this beautiful scripture card online that almost matches the book perfectly and printed them out so I could tuck one into the card or book. I often like to include scripture cards into birthday cards to encourage and lift someone's spirits.
Here are two of the cards that I made to go along with the journals. I used lots of PTI products on these. Gran's Garden, Boutique Borders for the frame and one of the detailed layers from Sweet Life for the background.
I just love how everything goes together perfectly.
This set was sent to a very, very dear friend of mine to celebrate her birthday. I gave another set to one of the ladies at my Bible study who I noticed was writing prayer requests on paper napkins. Of course, hers didn't include a birthday card. Just the book, pen and scripture card. She loved it!
I'll be entering this card into the following challenges:
PTI Win It Wednesday ~ Favorite Florals
The Flower Challenge ~ Latest stamps or dies
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
Thanks for stopping by!
