I was flipping through dies that I had never used and saw the Paper Smooches snowflake that I got as they were closing. Then I saw the 'holiday blessings' by Paper Rose which was a recent purchase - and I like how the two of them had a chunky rounded look. I knew it was all meant to be when I saw this older paper by Lawn Fawn that also included hearts and the "blessings" of peace, love and joy!! I love it when a card comes together like that!!
I applied a heavy coat of sparkle to the snowflake. My original intent was to use black behind the sentiment to balance the black patterned paper but it just seemed so heavy - so the three little glitter dots gave me the black that I needed!!
One last post about the Colorado wildfires. It might surprise you to know the big ones are still burning although mostly contained. The biggest fire ripped through the high mountain church camp that our family has gone to for 30 years. For weeks at a time, no one knew whether it stood or not. The fire would blow towards it, then it would shift, then it would head back, then an early snow slowed it and on and on. At the beginning, the firefighters had used it as a base (to eat, shower, and sleep) and when they were taking a "break" from fighting the fire, they spent a lot of time trying to mitigate the danger. See that big orange thing by the cars, that's a big water-filled bladder - they placed them all around the camp.
They saved the main lodge although you can see it was close. (Pictures by Sky Ranch staff.)
The high ropes course and much of the land, including most of the sites for youth campers, were damaged.
But I think this is the most amazing view. This is the outdoor worship space and the font. Changed forever, but still standing.
I hope to see you playing along with us this week.
