Today was a good day. Not necessarily for me. But then again, I guess it was!
It was a joyful celebration today at church. Uplifting. Inspiring. And brought me some peace in my storm. A celebration in many ways. It's the Advent season and the pastor's sermon was "Oh! It is Jesus!" It was something that I really needed to hear. And I could go on and on about that subject, but I won't, it would take too long. And for the first time in our church's history....drumroll please! There was a MARRIAGE PROPOSAL! Oh my, it was such a beautiful, beautiful moment for us all. Shocking. Loud. Noisy. Joyous. Amazing. The soon-to-be bride was in shock! As I sit here now, I feel teary...but a good teary, you know? We're all so happy for the couple! They're such a sweet, sweet couple.
Ok, on to the project for Mark's Finest Papers http://mfpspeedytv.ning.com/page/oriental-sketch-challenge-16-12-21-13. You're provided a sketch to use. And your project must use an Oriental image/character or paper that makes the card obviously oriental in nature. Of course you can add to the sketch, switch direction, make it a square card, or add embellishments. I really don't have a lot of things in Oriental nature, although for those of you that know me know that my great-great-great grandfather was Chinese. So of course, I improvise. I use whatever "feels" oriental in nature to me. I like how this turned out.
Products used: Inkadinkado Crane wooden stamp #92127, white, red, and black card stock, Bic markers
I've been blessed today and I hope that you have been too!
Until my next go around,
