Divine Design

I'm so sorry that I am terribly late today in uploading my Divine Design post. We got a call for a house showing shortly after I woke up this morning. We had all relaxed this weekend and the house needed some desperate attention to bring it back to "showable". Then of course, Katie and I had to vacate the premises. We decided to go get a haircut. And we arrived back at home about an hour ago. The last hour which I have spent crying. I learned a valuable lesson today. BE CLEAR-CUT AND SPECIFIC with a new stylist and tell her what you DON'T want as well as what you do want. What I didn't want? To look like a boy.
It WILL grow out, it will grow out.....

Anyway, on to the project......
Card Recipe:
Stamps~ Sing to the Lord (ODB)
Ink~ Basic Grey, Palette Black
Paper~ Shimmery White CS, Black CS, Daisy D's DP
Accessories~ Cuttlebug "Diamonds in the Rough" folder, corner rounder, American Crafts grey satin ribbon, small square punch, primas and brads
I used a new set called "Sing to the Lord" on my page which will be available June 15th from Our Daily Bread. It features this beautiful little songbird on a blooming tree branch and 4 sweet scriptures to go along with it as well as an extra blooming branch. It's absolutely wonderful! I'll be showing you more with this set as the month unfolds!
Be sure to check out the lovely inspiring creations from my friends and fellow Scripture Chicks
Lori, Taylor, Nancy, and Jami. And please feel free to join us by uploading to your blog or sharing in the Splitcoast gallery using keyword BVC08.
Have a great day!

This is gorgeous Angel! So soft and pretty. I really like the Daisy DP and the way you attached the ribbon is perfect for the design. Looking forward to seeing more of the stamp set too...looks like a good one! Hope all is well with you and your family! Hugs~ Patti

Your cards are lovely. I especially enjoy the ones with scriptures on. I love the paper and bird use on Our Daily bread. Just great.

I love what you've done with this new set! The beautiful background paper is perfect. Love the ribbon treatment, and Cuttlebugged sentiment panel.

Angel, this is SO pretty! Oh, you've got such a knack for elegance and beauty in your projects. I'm so sorry about your traumatic morning. I agreed to a short cut (my bad) a couple months ago, my hairdresser assured me with great enthusiasm that it would look "sooo good", ummm, she was wrong. The hair cut may have been a good one, but not for me. It did grow out quickly and yours will too : ) ! BTW, I'm in the market for a new camera...do you still like your new Canon?

It's absolutely beautiful!! I haven't seen a card you've done yet that I didn't like. They are all so nice. I looked at the Cuttlebug machine. They're $90 here and I wouldn't use the diecut part of it so i'm thinking that i'm going to go with the Fiskars embossing system. I'll have to see. ~Lucy~

I keep meaning to join your group and make a scripture card. I love your use of scripture and can't wait to for the new release from ODB. As for your hair, just think of it this way. It is summer and it will be hot. Short hair is cooler and easier to deal with. What about putting some highlights in it. I have very short straight hair and I always add hightlights in it for summer. I am sure you still look beautiful because you have Jesus and His presence shows more than our "looks"!

aaaahhhh Angel I'm sure your haircut looks sweet, after all you are such a pretty woman that a hair cut couldn't look bad on you!! Your card is very pretty too!!

Michelle said...

Hmmmmm... what do Kevin and Katie think? Can I see a picture of your hair? I bet it still looks cute in a little clip! Did you get something from my mom in the mail?
