~Different Worlds & a Potter~

I recycled an older atlas in my project today.

The recipient is a sweet lady at my church who always greets me with a friendly smile.

She creates BEAUTIFUL pottery, and I purchased

ODBD You are the Potter last year, with her in mind.

The "different worlds" here represent her fanned out family.

I'm not near my immediate family either, so she comes to mind in my prayers often.

Check out Inspired By #20

Can you see why I chose to cut out "globes" and add some text DP to my card?

It was the perfect jumping off point to start from.

One more thing...I was unsuccessful, at first, in sewing around the Spellbinder label.

The second time, I hand-cranked the edges.

It really helped me control those curves.

Thanks for stopping by...have a crafty Monday!
