~Life is Wonderful~

I saw this sentiment~and I read THERAPY all over for the recipient


What a blessed reminder!


happy contented sigh


Check out this runway model from

I used the angles of her dress and the muted pops of razzleberry (learned that lil' number since that color label!),olives and orangey-yellows.

I could have just stamped that sentiment on the cardbase and called it a day!

Expect to see those border punches peek in...I am playing with them like crazy.

Have a wonderful day~even if not perfect. ;)


Stamp:Verve Words of Wisdom
Paper:BoBunny Ambrosia,Authentique Lively,Georgia Pacific cardbase
Punch:EK medallion chain
 Ink:Tsukineko Memento ink tuxedo black


  1. I just LOVE this, Marlena. Did you say that the sentiment is a rubber stamp? I would like to know where you purchased this, as it would be a great one for me to have. Great job keeping it CAS and really beautiful.

    Hope you're having a great week. I hope you know how very much I appreciate your faithful commitment to Word Art Wednesday, and how blessed I am that God has brought you into my life. I enjoy your crafting SO much, and hope that you enjoy creating as much as I enjoy seeing it all.

    Be blessed,
