Sending Hugs

Life's gotten pretty weird/tragic/scary around this country lately. We could all use a hug and encouragement, because out of all this mess...hope. So here you go.

Card Size: 6.25" x 3.5"

Further adventures into really old, wood-mounted stamps, this one a Delta stamp with copyright date of 2002. I colored the stamp with Arteza brush markers (two purples and a green) and spritzed with water. The bold, bright colors made me so happy!

The mat layer is distressed (inspired by this PIN) by running it repeatedly through a crimper (Fisksars) horizontally and vertically, and then through the Cuttlebug so it didn't look so crimped. Then, I ran a scissor blade across the edges. The texture reinforces the torn vellum nicely, I think. 

So hugs to you!

If you're interested in a daily devotion, check out ours at First United Methodist Church of Springboro on Facebook. I'll be giving another tomorrow, but it's well worth checking out the other church leaders and members who have given devotionals. You'll find them all on the link provided. (I hope!)

Mercy, grace, peace, love, and virtual hugs,
