Have I mentioned new toys lately? :D

First, I'd like to say HI! to all you new subscribers - I can't tell you how glad I am that you like what you've seen enough to want to continue with me for a while! :) I'm not the best stamper out there, but I LOVE what I do, I LOVE teaching people that creativity isn't about being able to DRAW, and I love PEOPLE. :)

SO. That said, let me share a new project with you!!!

This is a birthday card for a friend Kenn made when he was working on CAPTURE MUSIC CITY; Nancy Diana is a very gifted photographer, and a very lovely, Godly woman - I've had the privilege of meeting her at the unveiling of the project book.

Sunday night, her husband invited us all to the church where she leads worship to surprise her, and have a party after the evening service. (I'm writing this before the party, so I'm looking forward to it!!!) Kenn decided that I should make her "one of my cards". What does THAT mean?? Oh, well. So, I set out to make a special card for Nancy. I KNOW she'll appreciate anything she receives - which ALWAYS makes me want to do something even more special for a person. :D

So here it is. I'll list the "ingredients", then include a detail photo of the butterfly and the rhinestones - and you'll be able to see a little more detail of the background in both shots. Plus, you can ALWAYS see a bigger photo if you click on one of them. :)
