NEW...


It's an exciting day for my friend, Kelly S (Gingham Girl) who launches a new weekly challenge today. It is called WOW: Word of the Week. She picked a most appropriate word, NEW! I knew immediately the direction I would go with this wonderful scripture stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms...new creation. I used two other challenges, the SC243 over on SCS and the 365 Card Blog Checkerboard Background.

My paper is an unknown checkerboard and Yellow Bicycles fabulous flocked flourish. I used GP white cs and Brazzill red linen texture. The scripture was inked with Memento Tuxedo Black and embossed with clear ep. I used a square nestability to emboss the frame. A piece of deep red ribbon finishes it off.

Congratulations, Kelly on starting your own challenge, it is one that I will enjoy participating in. I love to read and try to exercise my 'wordsmithing' on a regular basis. So bring it on!!!
