Love Through The Window

Good morning everyone! I hope you are having a really great weekend. I've been kind of lazy this weekend. It's too hot to go outside and do much, and my mojo wasn't inspiring me to do anything either. Then I got to playing around with some of the new images Squigglefly released yesterday. The Floral Window image by brand new artist Laura Campbell cried out for me to use it, so I tried printing it out on some handmade paper to see what it would look like.

I really like the way this looks, and it's got a great texture too! I printed my sentiment out on the computer and then punched out and glittered a tiny heart to use between the two words. A very quick and simple card, but it needed something to give it a bit more punch, so I got out a white gel pen and started making dots all over.

Definitely has more punch now don't you think? It's really amazing to me what a few white dots can do!

I hope you'll go by and take a look at all the new images, and remember that Laura Campbell is donating 100% of the money from the sale of her images to the The Theological Biblical Academy, (TBA). TBA trains pastors and church planters who will establish and lead biblical churches in Croatia and the bordering countries of Slovenia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Serbia. What better way to help out such a wonderful organization and still get something for yourself?!

The blogland card I'm sharing with you today is this perfectly wonderful ensemble using Nina Brackett's Sew Fabulous set at Clare Buswell's blog. If you see something spectacular made with Squigglefly images, please share them!

Have a great Sunday, and thanks for looking!
