Know Who You Are

I'm such a people pleaser.

I really am.

So when I chose this sentiment...know that it doesn't come from a place of arrogance or conceit.

In fact, if I were actually saying it out would be said in a color of oh, "gray" not such a bold black...unless the Lord chose to give me a booming voice that day.

Just sayin.

I got my inspiration from this rockin outfit at

Since I'm such a "rebel", 


 I used dots instead of stripes, so


there you go.


 please tell me you know I'm joking.

I love having a blog.

I love that I can be "me" here.

I love that you "get" me here, and if you don't....well, sometimes I don't get me either.

I'm in those, as we'll say in civilized terms..."transitional" years.


blessings friends~

So fun, Marlena! I love the rebellion! HAHA! Seriously, though, great card! Thanks so much for playing along with us at the Runway Inspired Challenge!

Marlena, my friend, such a smile brought to my face with the fabulous note you left on my blog (heart-warmed tremendously), this delightful post and your WOW card! Your 'rebel' style here, with the dots and lovely bloom, is a wonderful translation of the inspiration dress. I love that you have a blog; I love that you are 'you' here, and I love everything you create - in words and in images. You're a blessing! And, now, because I'm experiencing a 'transitional years' bossy moment *snort* (I think *snort* is such a fun word), run this gem over to AAA Cards where the challenge is CAS and orange. Here's the link: See you there! Hope you're feeling much better, too...send positive thoughts and prayers your way!

Beautiful card and a wonderful sentiment of encouragement. I tell this to my girls all the time. Our confidence is not in ourselves, but in the One who made us! We have God-confidence, and we know Whose we are!

This is a fantastic card. Love how you have combined the flower with the pattern--and there is still so much white space to keep the card feeling so light.
