“The woman who works with her hands only is a laborer.
The woman who works with her hands & her head is a craftswoman.
The woman who works with her hands, her head & her heart is an artist.”
~St. Francis of Assisi
Thank you to Marlene, my friend and fellow stamper who gifted me a beautiful book of quotes this past week-end, from which this lovely quote came from! I have had a long fascination with quotes, I have been collecting them forever. For bridesmaid gifts at my wedding 30 years ago, I gave each of the bridesmaids a book of quotes!
This morning I would like to welcome Ken and Pat, and Pat from California to our blog, and I would like to welcome Sue to our Stamping Peace Leadership Team. Sue signed up yesterday to be a hobby demonstrator. We’re so happy to have you on the team Sue, and so happy to have friends Ken and Pat and Pat visiting here on the blog. You ALL are truly fabulous works of art! : )
This is another card that we made at our Team Meeting on Saturday. I was trying to showcase the new ink colors, but couldn’t get Mossy Meadow in there! The flowers behind the card were little bouquets from our gardens that each team member received. Now I wish I had used Melon Mambo instead of Tangelo Twist ink to match the flowers! : ) The top of the card was a Debbie Henderson design of the new “Work of Art” (which I received free at the catalog premiere!) stamp set, I just added the zigzags on the bottom. Don’t I love the richness of that Blackberry Bliss cardstock…isn’t it a gorgeous color!
This is the first bouquet of the season that I cut from our gardens to spruce up the bathroom for the Team Meeting last week-end. Pretty, pretty! : ) Have a wonderful day, Dawn
