Timing



Hello Friends

I hope you had a good week. I made this card a white ago and just got around to finishing it off.  I embossed this lovely flower stamp from Unity called Insightful Meadows with white embossing powder. Then I used my Brusho Crystal Colours Turquoise and Sea Green.  The Brusho does all of the work and creates this lovely background. I wanted to add some texture so I found some old seed beads just to give it a different look.  I love to experiment with different things.

The God's Timing sentiment  was stamped with the Hero Arts Ombre Ink this one is the Pool to Navy. I bought mine at Hobby Lobby and used a coupon.   I am not sure if I like it I need to play a little more with it.  But the idea is really nice where you have instant ombre without having to do it yourself.

I love the end result of this card. I hope you like it too.  I so need to send this card to myself ha :) timing is a funny old thing.  Waiting is hard for me. As I am sure it is for most of us. I have some things in my life I want to happen. It is hard to wait. But I know there is a perfect timing for everything. It is true God's timing is perfect and I just need to trust it. Easier said than done though don't you think??  Take a flower and all that it goes through to become one. The seed is still at work under the earth before it emerges into the light . We see the part that pops through the soil, but lots of things have to happen before it gets to that stage we just don't get to see it.  Everything will fall into place when it is the right time to do so and not a minute before.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.

Craft Stamper November Challenge

Hey Friends Welcome to a new  Craft Stamper  challenge for November. Can you believe we are almost at the end of the year already!!  Where did time go?? It has been pretty cold and frosty up here in Scotland for the last few nights.   But I am hanging on to Autumn as long as I can. I took a wee walk around the park and collected some lovely Autumn leaves.  I wanted to incorporate them into my project today.  I put the leaves in some paper and put them inside a heavy book overnight to press them down.  I started off with a white card base and used this sentiment stamp from Unity and repeat stamped all down the side of my card using Potting Soil Archival Ink. Then I went around the edges with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink.  Next I took my leaves and my paper punches and punched a heart shape out from the yellow leaf and then stuck it to my card with fabric glue.  Then I punched some hearts from the red leaves and put one inside t

Unity & Misti Blog Hop

Hello My lovelies :) Welcome to the Unity and Misti blog hop! I  hope you are enjoying seeing all of the projects so far. I just had my first wee play with the Misti tool the other day. It is a very new to me tool and wow do I LOVE it!! It is awesome! Just for the simplest of things like positioning a stamp.  One time is all you need with the Misti!! I am not one of those crafters that gets my stamped images crisp first time. I usually have wasted a card or two before I end up with a perfect image. This tool totally eliminates all of that.  Here is my very first card that I made with the Misti tool and Unity stamps.  I used a stamp called  Scattered Pieces . I LOVE this stamp and the sentiments that come with it.  I positioned the feather and the sentiment at the same time on the Misti.  I totally love that you can do that too!  It lets you stamp several at once instead of just eye balling it and hoping it works out!
