Wishing You a Beautiful Day...

Hello Fellow Crafters,
I am so heart happy I am slowly strolling into my craftroom more and more as I slowly put cards together again. I have cheated and moved a TV tray to my bedroom to sit and do some cutting, gluing and glancing at the different stages of my card projects and getting it to my final design. I have even moved to making some of my paper flowers to the dining table...because I am still adjusting to having my Mom in the house with me all the time. I want her to feel included or not feel like I am not isolating myself in my craftroom.
The card I am sharing today...I have been working on 2 weeks or more as I slowly put different pieces on and off...adding and taking away until I came to a point of what I wanted. To tell the truth I have quite a few card projects that take me a week or more as I go through some of my leftover diecut scraps. On this card...I found a leftover diecut and wanted to see if I could use any others since my days the past two weeks were not healthy. There are some specific stamp sentiments like the heart with "Jesus Loves you" by Inkadinkado I pre-stamp in different colors I like to keep readily available in container box. And besides...I cannot tell you enough times of how much Jesus Loves you to the Moon and back. "

The beautiful turquoise design paper  is one of the sheets in the We Are 3 Digital - Pastel Burlap Collection and the Musical Notes design paper is from Holiday Wishes Collection. The "Wishing you a Beautiful Day" sentiment is one of Miss Daisy Stamps Sentiment Collections called "Beautiful Day Sayings".  

I love silhouettes..I guess they kind of remind me of beautifully carved cameo's. I have been able to collect a few silhouette stamps by Hero Arts. 
I recently visited the Spellbinders PaperArts Shop and was so excited when I saw they came up with a Shapebilities Silhouette die  called Party Kids. It was a little expensive but I had to buy it.  I couldn't wait to create my design using it. I love it so much and know I will be making many Birthday and/or Celebration cards with this die. I have to share a pic of the die.
