New Beginnings

It's been a full day of crafting at my house with my little ones eager to make their Daddy a Birthday card. Needless to say I couldn't find my desk when I wanted to craft-lol. Once I unearthed it and put things away, I really started to notice things I don't use that often. Like my Big Shot. So, I pulled it out and was determind to incoporate it into this challenge.

The challenge this week at the MelJens's Challenge Blog is 'New Beginnings'. I knew I had a card to make that expressed exactly that. A friend of mine was left at Christmas time by her spouse of 11 years. So I made this to send to her

All the images are from MelJen's except the tag 'hugs' I wrote freehand. I glittered the clouds and coloured the bear with copic markers. I used my big shot to cut out the bear with a 'tags' die cut.

Inside I wrote "when someone closes a door, God opens a window"

Thanks for stopping by, have a great night!


  1. Oh goodness, I really love how you put this together. I try to avoid cards like this because I am so inept, but you really pulled it off Laura. Thank you so much for joining us at Meljen's Designs, I just love seeing new ideas - plus anyone using those gorgeous clouds totally rock in my book. Goodluck!

  2. Such a sweet card. I hope it brought your friend some comfort. I really like how you used multiple images to create your card. They work really well together.

    Thank you for joining us this week at Meljen’s Designs for our New Beginnings challenge!
