No Words....

{jane bosi

Happy Saturday!  I popped by to share a card that features a few new goodies from the shop!  The sentiment, from Thoughtful Words, seen on the card front, continues to the inside and reads (in full) "No words can describe how thankful I am for you."  Wouldn't you love to find those words in your mailbox??

This year, I am determined to say the positive things I think.  We live in a world that is just too quick to point out the wrong, criticize or complain.  I'm doing what I can to focus on speaking the after thoughts of joy.

The central image on my card comes from the Through The Trees set.  I started by stamping the birch tree image on water color paper and then adding some sky and grass water colors.  I framed the tree image with card stock that I cut an oval out of and then added some stenciling.  I sponged some and then added a bit more with a paint brush--it got kind of splotchy, which I think looks cool.

After stamping the sentiment, I added a bird (a heron, I think--of the great blue variety?) from the January Stamp of the month set,  Scene Silhouettes: Wetlands.  It's kind of an earthy card.  A little out of my wheel house, but I dig it! 

Have a great day!
