The Blessings set from Hero Arts is small, with a lovely word die I just had to have, you know, now that I have a CuttleBug.
Thanks again, Eva!
Anyway, here's an awesome way to let the word die cut shine simply.
The background colors come courtesy of Tim Holtz distress inks in seedless preserves and milled lavender. Don't they blend beautifully?!?! The water spots give the color an ethereal effect that works with the blessings sentiment.
The water spot effect is one of my favorite things about distress inks. It's dreamy!
Last night, I didn't get a chance to post because we went to my younger son's band concert. Oh, my goodness! It was amazing. Our high school music program is outstanding. Please understand that we are NOT a musical family. Neither George nor I can carry a tune, and while we listen to music frequently (mostly classic rock from '70s, Jimmy Buffett, James Taylor, and such, and plenty of easy-listening jazz), we aren't knowledgeable at all.
When Jack came to us at the end of fifth grade and said he wanted to play the trumpet, we were floored. Jack has autism and has never showed the least interest in extracurricular activities other than A Day out with Thomas the Tank Engine. He's now in his fourth year of band and takes a weekly private lesson to supplement. He's not a prodigy, but he certainly has fun!
So my blessing for the week is seeing Jack on stage blowing his horn in harmony with the high school concert band.
What's your blessing for the week?
Mercy, grace, peace, and love,
ink: Distress milled lavender, seedless preserves
