I thought I would share a photo with you today. This was the view outside my room yesterday. I was at the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, Colorado - no craft room in sight. However, what was in sight was the amazing beauty of creation! I hope you enjoy the peace of this scene. I hope to be back in the craft room tomorrow - later in the day. I hope you'll come back for a visit! In the meantime, don't forget to take some time to enjoy creation :)

Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: We Each Need Different Things To Grow
We have a vegetable bed in our backyard that we had been warned against building. "There's too much shade and not enough sun." "Your vegetables won't do well there." These were some of the concerns we heard. Being the new gardeners we were, we built the bed anyway...and...it has turned out to be a wonderfully productive lettuce bed! What may not be the perfect place for some things or some people, is the exact perfect place for others. There might be some vegetables that won't do well in that bed. Lettuce, however, loves it. We each need different things to grow. What makes you grow best? I know that balance, nature, creativity, and a whole lot of love seem to be just the soil I need to grow well :) How 'bout you?
Today's card uses a few stamp sets - Animal Stories for the animals; Upsy Daisies for the greeting; Inspired By Nature for the grass. I stamped the animals in More Mustard and Basic Gray and cut them out with my hobby blade (you may notice a bit of dazzling diamonds on the elephant's spots :). The grass was stamped using VersaMark on Pacific Pointe card stock. I crumpled the piece of Sahara Sand card stock and then sponged over the crease lines with Sahara Sand ink. The edges of the Soft Suede panel were also sponged with Soft Suede ink. The greeting was stamped after coloring the stamp with Pacific Pointe and Old Olive markers. Don't you just love the new 1/8" taffeta ribbon?! I love that it can fit through the button holes :) I hope you like it!
