I found some card mojo today! When I think of how long it took me to make 7 cards, I shake my head...but I love how they turned out. I printed out a file I had created of scriptures from a company who sells wall art. I wish I had stamps like these, but that just isn't in my budget right now because the only company I know of that sells anything like this is Our Daily Bread stamps, and while they have amazing stamps that I drool over, their stamps are too expensive for a single mom...but one day I will have some of their stamps. In the meantime, this is the solution I came up with. So I can't sell these cards, but I know some shut-ins that are going to love them. If you click on the words 'a card' in the descriptions, you'll be taken to the blogs of the cards I lifted. a card which I pinned to pintrest several months ago. The papers are from Basic Grey's Curio collection. a card which had this quilt motif while surfing for inspiration. I couldn't wait to try it! I love how Karen tells how she did it so it was easy to recreate. The papers I used are from Basic Grey's Sugared collection. a card on the same blog as the last inspiration. I like Karen's cards better than mine, but still love the way mine came out. a card by Joanna. I had never heard of the Card Patterns blog before, so now there's another place for sketches! I can't wait to explore past sketches they have. This card used paper from Basic Grey's Ambrosia collection.
