Hi sweet friends!
I'm super excited about this new card series
I'm debuting this year called ...
Writing My Story ♡
There's so many wonderful moments in a day
... all 365 of them ...
that holds so much wonder!
Each of us has a beautiful story to tell ~
something that is so uniquely ours.
I'm so grateful that you stop by my blog and see my cards
(and my messes and mishaps and tried and trues!)
but there's often things that make me ME ...
what we love, what makes us smile, what brings us joy!
All the little things in between ...
So, I asked my husband, my 4 children and son-in-law to
write down 12 things (2 each) that are ME in their eyes.
My oldest daughter sealed them in a little jar
and will give me one at random each month.
I'm SOOOOOO curious as to what they wrote down!
This month: a love of dragonflies! ♡
I know ... it's a bug!
They are so special to my heart and I've loved them since I was little.
After my dad passed away, skirting the cliche, I saw them everywhere.
Their quiet nature brings me such peace
and watching them flying and dancing in the air is such joy!
My card is a combination of stenciling a quick background with
the Altenew striped background
and the Fluttering Friends stamp/die set from My Favorite Things.
I used snippets of watercolored backgrounds to stamp/die cut
the images and popped them up onto the card.
I love the softness, the organically flowing watercolor mixes!
This stamp set was almost my One Plus Twelve ~
but since the challenge is only one stamp and these are so tiny
(and then my stamp found me on vacation)
I'm happy to use it now :)
Everyone has a story to tell -
each day ... a new page to turn :)
I can't wait to see what their next note is for me!
Thanks for stopping by!
