Inspired by Janelle

This week's One Layer Wednesday challenge is to do a card inspired by Janelle.  We can use one of Janelle's cards as inspiration or some of her words.  If you want to be inspired, check out her blog.

This is for Janelle...


The design is inspired by this card.  The sentiment is inspired by Janelle herself.  I hate that she is having to go through this hard time, but I'm so grateful that she shares her faith and optimism.  Every time I read her blog, I come away feeling better.  Wouldn't it be nice if all of us could touch others that way.

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Thoughts and Prayers, Herb Expressions
Ink:  Basic Black, SU Markers (Old Olive, Real Red)
Paper:  Whisper White
Other:  Stamp-a-ma-jig

Thank you for visiting here today and for the wonderful comments you have left.

Enjoy!

I thought that this card looked so 'happy' and that's before I clicked on it and read the sentiment. So there you go, perfect match!

You're right about Janelle's blog - so much to inspire craft-wise and life-wise.

cheers,

It's wonderful that Janelle is blogging about her experience and her faith. I know blogging helps me stay sane, when faced with tough times.

I love how you used that floral spray to create a frame. Great idea, Bonnie!

Janelle said...

I CASEd the same card of mine, Bonnie, but not nearly as successfully as you did. I love the colors you used... so upbeat and cheery! Thanks so much for playing along with this challenge. Love your card!

Susan said...
