“Believe” Card

Good day, Everyone, and welcome to Leisure Lane.  Kick off your shoes, brew some tea or coffee and lets visit for a while.  I’m sharing my newest card, which was made with part of a former greeting card envelope and some bits and pieces I collected.  A little bit of splattered paint for a shabby chic effect, and a sweet crown charm that echoes the crown design over the dragon fly. I was thinking of adding a ribbon on top for hanging purposes, but then decided to leave it as is, so it could be displayed on a table or mantle.

I hope, dear friends, this gives you encouragement to “believe”….Believe in yourself, believe in your talents, believe in your dreams, because as Jesus so profoundly said, “All things are possible to him who believes.”

Enjoy a beautiful day full of promises, and….

Until next time, may happy days abound!

I’m currently writing chapter seven of my third novella, River Runs Deep.  I’ll keep you posted on the milestones.  Thank you for visiting me today.

Friends and Flowers

I’m sending my friend, Brenda, from the blog, Down Memory La La Lane, this altered card with double layered lace, and the last of the big pieces of the scrapbook paper you may remember from a few of my wall hangings.

IMG_1653The original card design is the bottom 2/3 of the card.  I added the scrapbook paper on the top third.  Then I added a double layer of lace with other embellishments.  A lovely sentiment about friendship and flowers inside the blank card gives it a personal touch.   Brenda doesn’t live far from me, so with a prayer the card will get to her in one piece.

I’ll also be joining Melody at Brown Gingham Creations for REDnesday fun…so come along if you’d like.
A Little Something Extra

Speaking of re-purposing items, I was just at Brown Gingham Creations to see Melody, and she has another blog called, Apronation.  She found an old vintage tablecloth and turned it into a lovely apron.  117For those of you who may have some very old, worn out, but very precious vintage items, don’t throw them away.  Instead, contact Melody and tell her what you have.  She most likely will be able make something special with them for you.  So stop by and take a look.  Melody is a very talented lady.

Thank you for strolling by.  Until next time, may happy days abound!
