Spread Your Wings

Hello to all you wonderful paper enthusiasts!

Verse of the Day
To the one who is victorious, I will give the right
 to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious

Hunkydory - Show Horse

Hello all of you wonderful paper enthusiasts!

NIV Verse of the Day
 7 In this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples,
 the sheet that covers all nations; 8 he will swallow up death forever. 
The Sovereign LORD will wipe away the tears from all faces;
 he will remove his people’s disgrace from all the earth. 
The LORD has spoken.
             Isaiah 25:7-8 NIV

Hello to each and everyone of you. I have for you another card created from a Hunkydory card set. Made this card up using some of the pattern paper that came with the set and did a little tweaking of my own. I love the ideas that come with these sets, but I also like putting my own spin on them as well. We can always use a little more verity:))

Card base measures 5 1/8" x 7 1/8"

Products Used:
Hunkydory card kit;
Paper: Mint Green, Peach, Gold Mirror, Coral and White Glitter Cardstock;

Hunkydory Bird On A Branch

Hello all of you wonderful paper enthusiasts!

Pamper Yourself
Why are you cast down, O my inner self? And why
should you moan over me and be disquieted within
me? Hope in God and wait expectantly for Him, for I
shall yet praise Him, my Help and my God.
                                                                     PSALM 42:5

As promised here's a Hunkydory card I created a while back. This was one of those freebies sets that came with a card magazine I purchased. It was actually the very first card I ever made from Hunkydory or any other card kit as far as that goes. I liked it so much I ordered a few kits from that company. When I need a quick card I get out the Hunkydory's and whip one up. All you need is some cardstock and if you choose to, add an embellishment or two.

Card base measure 4 1/2" 6 1/4"

Products Used:
Hunckydory Card Kit
Spellbinders Classic Ovals
White, Pink and Silver Mirri Cardstock
Versafine Onyx Black Ink 

Easy peasy!
