Comfort, Strength, and Peace







Good evening, I had to work a little OT today so I am a little late getting to today's challenges. I am trying to work it out so that I have three weeks off in a row before the holidays. I so enjoy my time at home creating!
I used the bed shown as my inspiration, it is from today's IC205 and the sketch is from Just Us Girls challenge blog, JUGS6. This is a fabulous sketch and I am luvin the combo of colors in this one. Of course I used my favorite Verve stamps, the sets Believe and Forever In Our Hearts. I cut out the flowers, colored them, and added dazzling diamonds glitter. I also added a silver bead to the centers of each one. You know I luv my Janome, so I also added stitching. I added white ribbon tied with a button and twine. I hope you like my creation, thank you so much for stopping by and commenting. I hope you have a fabulous Saturday evening, you should take in a movie and popcorn at home of course. Share your evening with family or friends, and remember to enjoy!
