Spring break at my college started today, and I spent most of the afternoon stamping. Yay! I still have a lot of grading and planning to get done this week, but that can all wait until tomorrow. In the meantime, I've been playing with Hero Arts From the Vault Bugs and coordinating dies. It's a great set!
Today's card uses the bee stamps in the Hero Arts set on an unusually sized card (4 1/8" x 6 1/4"). It fits in a standard A6 envelope, which is a little large for the way I cut the card. I wanted more white space around my circles than the standard card measurement allowed for.
The card was inspired by THIS LOVELY PIN. Obviously, there were plenty of changes, but I do really like how the design worked out with very different stamps and dies.
Those soft yellow pearls have been in my stash for quite a while, and it felt great to use them. The flower stamps are from Gina K, and the sentiment is from StampinUp.
Many thanks to those of you who read my post on human sexuality and the UMC on my other blog and DIDN'T unsubscribe from this blog! I know the issue is incredibly divisive, with strong feelings on both sides. My feelings certainly are strong. It's my hope and prayer that the church splits amicably over this, allowing each side to exercise its conscience on the issue. There's been quite enough harm done already.
If you or people you love are part of the LGBTQ community, know that there are churches in the UMC that both welcome you and affirm your full participation. We are all beloved children of God...just as we are. God doesn't make mistakes.
Mercy, grace, peace, and love,
