New inspiration

Hello, friends,

My wonderful husband gave me a gift of new Hero Arts stamps and books. I am so busy with kids and keeping the priorities of my life right that there's not much time left for stamping. I had an idea for the tulip card for 1-2 days in my head before I had time to sit down and make it. A slight mistake was obvious to me but I decided I had no time to redo it and when ahead. Do you see it?

There's a little stamping secret here. I wanted a long card and stamped the tulips twice, masking the top with paper and covering the seam with a scalloped border by recycling some wrapping craft paper. It's amazing that though there're so many various stamps have been used, the card does not look too busy.

True friend

I made quite a few of these flower cards for the upcoming spring Women's day as thank you cards for teachers. Applying distress inks and stamping with Happy definition make it a fun and quick project. The sentiment "From all my heart" is stamped with StazOn on green vellum. The golden border is a sticker.

I am very satisfied with the books. I just love The Mission to motherhood by Sally Clarkson It is so deep and nurturing to my spirit. I may share more about the book when I finish.

Beautiful cards, stamps and books Maria! You still have young children, I know when my boys were all small that I didn't have time for anything, just fall in bed at night exhausted! I hope you will enjoy that cook-book too - it has brought us so much enjoyment already! I never really liked being in the kitchen, but something has changed in me and DH and kids are enjoying it too! It is an important part of the day to be together round the table. God bless you Maria and may He make you a mother according to His Heart!!

Thank you, dear Jacqueline, I think of you often and your mission to encourage the women via internet. They feel your love and appreciate your friendship.

I have not had a chance to look at the cookbook yet, but there's no doubt it will be useful and a new inspiration. Thank you for recommending it! The timing was perfect.
