People that have touched my life




































This blog hop is all about those who have inspired you.  Well, this card is what I call a two-fer.  It's really about two very special people in my life.  First is my friend Ellie.  I've had the honor to get to know Ellie as a friend the past few months.  I can't believe how blessed I've been to have her in my life.  She has shared her faith, her life, and her talent.  The inspiration for this layout came from a sketches website that she shared with me when my mojo was missing.  I've never used a sketch site before because I felt like it was somehow "cheating."  But it's not; it's inspiring.  My mojo is not back yet as this card was 3 days in the making.  But it's peeking out here and there.  Due to Ellie, I'm sure it'll be back in no time.  THANKS HON!!!!

The second person is my husband.  This is obviously an anniversary card.  Tomorrow I celebrate being married to my best friend.  It's also a double anniversary as we got engaged and married on the same date, just in different years.  A two-fer.  ;-) 




My husband is also an inspiration to me.  He has so many good qualities that I try to emulate.  He has made me want to be a better person than I am for both him and for me.  The verse from Corinthians is just perfect for us.  I can't imagine my life without him. 

Well, enough of my sap for today.  Scarlet Jewel, Enchanted Evening, and Vintage Cream cardstocks from PTI.  Orange textured cardstock from Club Scrap.  Wood "paper" from Michaels.  Enchanted Evening, Summer Sunrise, Berry Sorbet, and Orangiere Inks from PTI.  Stamps on front of card from SU, Corinthians verse from Our Daily Bread.  Other inside Sentiment from GinaK.  Twine and button from PTI.  Punch from SU. 

Thanks for looking!
