Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: If You Really Want To Hear You Have To Stop And Listen
There is one particular point in our morning walk where Buddy's pace begins to slow and finally he comes to an absolute stand still. It is a place where we often see bunny rabbits (a favorite of his). His innate hunting ability tells him that in order to find the rabbits he needs to come to a complete stop - stand motionless - and watch and listen. Only then will he be able to find them. Oh how my dog teaches me so much! The same is true for our inner knowing. We can't hear our inner wisdom if we are busying ourselves or distracting ourselves (yes, time on the couch in front of the tv is distraction and does not qualify as coming to a complete hault and sitting motionless). We must come to a complete stop and be absolutely still and listen. Only then will we be able to hear what we need to know.
Today's card is for my aunt who has been under the weather with a cold. I began with a More Mustard card base and added a strip of Floral District designer series paper. Next I stamped one of the images from Circle Circus with Primrose Petals ink. I stamped the image multiple times and used a variety of circle and scallop circle punches to punch out the image so that I could then layer it with dimensionals. Next I added a button with a bit of thread to the top of the image with a glue dot. Finally, I stamped the sentiment from Thoughts & Prayers using Primrose Petals ink on Very Vanilla card stock. I cut it out to look like a banner and added it to the card with dimensionals. I hope you like it :)
