For no Particular Challenge

I didn't make this for any particular challenge. I just decided to make this for a neighbor. Journaling can sometimes be a real stress reliever for me (not quite as much as card making is ;)). I figured that this might me a nice little journal to jot some thoughts down in. Along with it I made some cupcakes for her and her kids. Chocolate is another good mood changer for me, so maybe it will be for her too.
I used one of the newly released sets from Clear Dollar Stamps called Winged Whispers. As soon as this baby came in the mail, I was itching to ink it up. I thought this was the perfect opportunity. As you can see the sentiment says, 'Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark.' I just love this quote.
Stamps: Winged Whispers
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Memento Tuxedo Black, Crushed Curry
Paper: Razzleberry Lemonade, watercolor, Rich Razzleberry
Accessories: sponge, Labels 9 & Tags Trio Nestabilities, button, aquapainter, Rich Razzleberry ribbon, journal & pen
I'm so glad you stopped by today. I hope the rest of your day is very blessed ;D
