Inspiration Week at 365 Cards

Hi Bloggy Friends!

So all week long we are celebrating words that inspire meaningful cards.  There are a lot of words out there that are beautiful and meaningful, but for each of us there was a word that really stuck out. 

For me, it was Courage.  For several personal reasons I think this words really applies not only to me, but to some dear friends in my life, particularly the one for whom this card was made.

Sometimes having courage means facing something really big in our lives, and sometimes it means simply getting up in the morning and facing the day ahead.  The card I made is for someone who has to do the latter, and it will not always be easy, so I'm hoping this card will bring her some comfort.

And here's a close up shot:

I think it's going to be a great week loaded with inspiration, so please come over and join us!

Robyn's Fetish Returns to 365 Cards

This week we welcome back Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More and I just adore their digi stamps!  Today I've got a Valentine's-themed card - *gasp* - is it time to switch holidays again??  My oldest daughter is always asking me, "What's the next holiday, Mom?", and I think this card will answer her question:

Here's a close-up:

Since I stuck so closely to the sketch, I decided to add put my patterned paper (K&Company) on some chipboard to raise it up off the card and create a little dimension.

The ribbon is Stampin' Up and I colored in the image with Copics.

Have a great week and come play along with us at 365 Cards!
