Good morning Ladies.
 
I'm so happy to be guest posting at Grisel's blog today..just a bit nervous as this is my first post ever:)
 
Don't you agree that My Chic & Crafty Lil' Heart is a happy place to visit? I really enjoy Grisel's Sweet spirit and appreciate the godly messages she posts.... as well as ZUPA LOVELY card inspiration!
 
After seeing a tutorial on the Lawn Fawn blog I wanted to try making a BG using the technique Karin at http://peppermintpattys-papercraft.blogspot.se/2013/02/my-first-video-tutorial.html shared.
I chose some pretty feminine distress inks to create a card  using the stamps, stickers and paper from the Simon Says Stamp March Card kit.
 
Here is the card (You can also check it out here: http://flic.kr/p/dYGCDP)

 

Just wanted to leave you with a verse my Dear Husband posted on the refrigerator the other day.
 

Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the works of the LORD, knowing that in the LORD,  your labor is not in vain.  (I Corinthians 15:58)

 
Thanks for reading....
Now go have a great weekend and SMILE!
Thank you for having me post Grisel.
