Made to soar ....

Hi friends!

Happy Saturday :)
I hope the start of your weekend is filled with wonderful plans
and you'll be enjoying it in all ways that make you smile!

You may remember that my word of the year for 2021 is Soar 
and I invite you to read my blog post here on how it found me :)

I was equally excited to see earlier in the year that Altenew
had released a stamp set with this exact word!
I knew instantly I had to order it ~ and yet I think this may be
only the second time I've used it this year!

And ......
I'm using it now for the Inspiration Challenge at SCS
and this is the photo that inspired me to create this card.
I kept the overall idea the same and did a quick watercolor wash background and ran that through the Big Shot when it was dry.
I popped it up onto a simple white frame background
and then stamped/die cut the birds to mimic flying.

Wishing you all things wonderful as you head into the weekend!

Thanks for stopping by :)
