Got the blues?

Ever had a case of the blues?  I've had one the past few days and I realized why--I hadn't gotten into my craft area for almost a week to create "just because"!  Well, I had to remedy that quick fast!  The end result is three cards that I am amazingly happy with--that NEVER happens!  I'll share them with you in a few posts spread out just a bit...you know, to keep you coming back! ;)  I call this first one "The Blues."

Here's "The Blues"~

Detail~

For these fabulous challenge~

IBSIC-#55

(Inspired by the ombre/color fading.)

(Focus on the sentiment.)

I've used stamps by Inspired By Stamping, patterned paper by Recollections, and all other supplies are by Stampin' Up!.  I used the "Rock 'n' Roll" technique for the sentiment to make it more of a focal point of interest.

Speaking of,  I LOVE this sentiment.  I truly believe that no matter what mistakes we've made, we can make them into a positive in our lives and create something good with them.  That's part of the great repentance process.  We're all human.  We will make mistakes.  It'll be okay as long as we learn from them.  No need to have the blues when you make a mistake--just pick yourself up, own it, ask forgiveness if needed, and do better.  It's totally easier said than done, but the more you practice it, the easier it gets!

Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at my card!  I do hope you like it and that you've been inspired to join in these fabulous challenges!  HUGS and happy stamping friends! :)
