Darnell's NBUS Challenge is still going strong. So many people, so many new stamps. I try to limit my buying. I know. You're laughing. But I do think twice, or three times even, before buying anything new. The one stamp set I didn't have to think about was Poppy Fields. the United We Flourish collaboration between Altenew and Essentials by Ellen.
I white heat embossed the flowers and some leaves from another Altenew set and colored them with Distress Inks. A 3D embossing folder, SSS stitched circle and rectangle dies, and a SSS sentiment on a scrap of Slate embossed with white finish out the card. You may think this is an unusual color for poppies but they found a field of them this color growing in North Carolina. Unfortunately that's not all they found. You do know what comes from poppies, right?
I've been making a lot of prayer cards lately. Too many people are going through difficult times and it makes me feel good to let them know that they are not alone. That someone is thinking of them and praying for them. One big one is the number of persons with Dementia or Alzheimer's. Both my son-in-law and a daughter-in-law are dealing with this with their fathers. It is so sad to watch someone who used to be such a vital part of our lives fade away into a world of their own.
Thanks so much for dropping by. Praying that all is well with you and yours.
