Happy New Year, A simple Card, An announcement

Happy New Year!!!  I hope your 2015 is filled with God's blessings!!

The announcement you say..... I am officially back on the Quietfire Design design team.  Woo-hoo!!!!  I've played along in several of the hops QF has done this past year and did a couple of guest but didn't rejoin the team.  I believe I'll have the time now to be consistent with them.  Thanks to Suzanne for taking me back (vbg - she's been waiting for me to come back)!!!

 I have brand new QF stamps to play with and here is a quick card showing one of them.  You can see all 4 of the new stamps HERE.  

I cut a piece of white cardstock to 4" x 5/14", stenciled the heart (The Crafter's Workshop) with Distress Inks mustard seed and picked raspberry, and stamped the quote with Archival Ink jet black.  I had not intended to tear the corners but I had used some tape with the stencil, not so much as to hold it in place but to mask off the heart next to this one, and when I took off the stencil I tore the piece... so, I made it work.  LOL   


The background piece... I sponged the same colors around another piece of white cardstock (4 3/4" x 6 3/4"), flicked it with water, stamped a background image across the center and a border image at the top and bottom (both Wendy Vecchi stamps).  This is all layered to a folded 5" x 7" card.  The main image is attached with foam mounting tape.



This quote makes me think about the biggest, greatest, best love there is... God's love!!!  And when we realize that love completely, it really does change our lives in amazing ways!!
