Full of Grace - My 500th Post

500 posts.  That's a lot of cards.  A lot of stamps, ink, paper, adhesive and time spent constructing said cards.

I've thought long and hard about what the project for this post might be, and I've decided that it's obvious.

MUSIC.

Everything with me is music.  I decided to start this blog listening to Katy Perry.  The name for this blog comes from a Sarah McLachlan song.  If someone has made a music stamp, I probably have it.  That's how much I love music.

My favorite song of all time is Sarah's "Possession".  I've been working on a canvas with those lyrics for awhile, and it's not finished yet, so I couldn't share it.  I wanted to use that song on another piece, but it wasn't coming together so I made this instead.  "Full Of Grace" is another great one, and has special meaning since it was used in a great episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  It's especially fitting too, since we're in the middle of one of the coldest winters, EVER.


I absolutely LOVE how this turned out.  LOVE. The colors, the glitter and shimmer, everything.

Handmade snowflake/flower hybrids.  Love them, too.

I'm entering challenges GALORE with this card!!

Thanks so much for looking and happy crafting.  Laters!!
