Unbelievable

Hello.  Welcome.  Happy New Year.  Today I was out in the garden.  I was going to tell you all the things that are growing out of season, but it seems everything is growing.  Very bizarre.  1st of January, Norway


 This is flowering in my garden today.  Happy New Year

I have made a quick card to encourage


I embossed a piece of blue card with Docrafts Large Flowers embossing folder.  I stamped and embossed Unity Stamps Precious Things sentiment with gold tinsel embossing powder.  Possibly not the best choice for text, although it is more readable in the real than in this photo.  I think the glitter in the embossing powder is doing funny things in the picture!!   Then I smeared versamark ink on two of the edges and embossed with the same powder.  

sentiment reads
In your soul are infinitely precious things that
can not be taken from you 

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

  17. Same thing is happening in the northern US... crazy weather. I feel sorry for them when the cold finally comes back!
    I love how you left the embossed part untouched and just colored the edges... I'll have to try that some day! Hugs!
