Love you so very much!

Hello my friends!

I hope you all had a great holiday!This is my first post after a long time…so I would like to start by wishing you a very Happy New Year!

New year means new beginnings…which, in turn, sometimes means using new products πŸ™‚ So, in my case, it meant using my brand new “TCW-Mini Speciments” stencil. This beautiful stencil has been designed by Rebekah Meier and it has been on the market for quite a while…but I just got the chance to buy it so it’s the very first time I used it…and I loved it!!!

I decided to start my crafting year using some of my favorite mediums…so I combined watercolors, distress inks, stamps, stencils and embossing powder to create a photo frame for a person I love so very much. Hope you like it and get inspired!

As usual, I used my little project to take part in a few challenges. A full list of them is displayed below. Feel free to join them or just pay them a visit to have a look at these ladies’ stunning creations!

  3. Such a wonderful card. Thank you for linking with us at Word Art Wednesday. Our current challenge is still ongoing and we would love to have you participate again. I would like to share this passage from the Bible coming from Hebrews 6:11-12 which says, “We want each of you to show this same diligence to the very end, so that what you hope for may be fully realized. We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised.” Have a blessed week.
