Bella Challenge

Yea it's official this is my first challenge and it's official I'm addicted to Bella Challenges. :-) I'm taking the philosophy less is more with this card. I kept trying to add something to it and nothing worked so there comes a point to call it done. lolol I love this pmsabella I colored it in with Primsa pencils and gamasol. The paper is basic grey and close to my heart. The card size is 6x6.

Pretty Birds....

Well I'm excited I'm still on a roll... :-) Here is another card that I make for my father for his birthday. I just love these birds..I picked them up in the dollar bin at JoAnn's and the paper is basic grey. I color it with Prisma pencils and gamasol. Again...I'm doing the quick lazy thing so I can go to bed. :-)

Sympathy Card

This was a very simple card to put together but I love the effect. It was a sympathy card for one of the mom's in my MOPS group, who's brother passed away. These are always the hardest for me to do. Not only on an emotional level but on a creative level as well.

This is the poem I used on the inside. I just loved it. I got it off one of my mom's disscussion boards.

Perfect Passing
If I should leave this world without a warning, and not even whisper a fond farewell, grieve not for one more message from the lips that God has stilled, but just remember me with love. Pray for my soul's journey to that fair land beyond life's tears, for I have believed with all my heart in its existence. I know that God is good, for He has come to me through the life of whose very garment I have sought to touch. It may be lonely, and I hope you miss me just a little, because I have loved so deeply my own family and faithful friends. Forgive me if I have hurt you and remember me for what I longed to be. Have faith that I am nearer than your dreams and fondest longings. The God of love shall keep all kindred spirits close together a few precious moments. Whisper softly that you love me and it shall linger on within my soul until you come. Say not goodbye, for on some bright tomorrow, we shall meet again.
