What lies behind us



With on-trend typography designed by Marcella Hawley, Good Thinking: Renewal will end your search for "just the right" rejuvenating words! This all-sentiment set measures 4" by 6" and is loaded with 16 images. 

I think ole Mr. Emerson had a little insight here that most adults don't figure out until much later in life. This sentiment is rather cozy and heartfelt I think personally and that means some rosy paper was a perfect backdrop. This paper is from an Authentique Paper pack that I bought a few weeks ago. Some hot pink roses and black matting were the ticket for this creation. Added some more of my special Pat Blooms and voila! Beautiful, right?


Today the Bloom Brigade is stamping out some serenity and they'd love to share a bit with you!

Hi Stacy! I hope all is well with you my friend :) Wow, this card is breathtaking and I do indeed love those big beautiful sentiments! Thanks so much for sharing your lovely work this morning--if your fellow design teammates are half as talented as you, I'm going to be VERY inspired today! (Oh I was just thinking of you last night at about 1am lol--remember all those colors of gorgeous wide satin ribbon you sent me a long time ago? Well, I still have most of it because it's so pretty, I hoard it (insert embarrassed face here) BUT....last night on youtube I found a cool tutorial for making handmade old English roses w/ribbon and instantly thought of that ribbon for it. Now I couldn't wait til this morning, no--had to do it right then so I did and I LOVE the results! Only 2 made so far but I'm going to write a post soon featuring the roses(although mine just look like very pretty flowers, not so much roses). Sorry for such a long comment, but I wanted you to know because I'm excited at how nice they came out and the only reason I had ribbon like that is because of you :) Big hugs my friend and have a wonderful day!

This is a most beautiful Emerson quote, and so lovely the way you framed it with those pretty flowers. I just love the paper, too! Gorgeous card, Stacy, and so quick to make something this beautiful without even coloring!
