Behold the New

It was a cold, dark, night... 
No, no, it was a cold, rainy night.
Nope.  It's just down right freezing outside!

Hi friends, how are you?  Are you staying warm?  Let's all keep our fingers crossed that Punxsutawney Phil doesn't see his shadow this year (laughing).   For now, the cold weather provides the opportunity to stay indoors and do a little stamping.  I hope you've carved out some stamping time for yourself as well.    Now is a good time to take advantage of the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps sale - 50% off selected stamp sets while they last.   And you certainly don't want to miss out on our newest feature (pun intended).   It's our Friday Feature & Challenge.   Come play!  We'd love to see what you've been creating.
I love to fussy up a card.  But there are times when I just don't have time to add the extra layers or embellishments.    So today I used a sweet open butterfly design paired with a wonderful Bible verse. Both play off each other.   A Kraft card stock base is the canvas of choice for this card. Simple stamping with just a touch of watercolor pencil, and some Ranger Distress paint (white picket fence) smudged around the edges.  End result: a one layer card with plenty of appeal, and a wonderful reminder that the past is behind.  Behold the new.   Praise be to God!
Thank you for your visit today dear friends.
Warm hugs and blessings,
