My Notebook


Today's Clearly Inspired Challenge is to make a card or project with flowers. I really needed to dress up the plain binder that holds my new Bible Reading Schedule and Journal from GraceWorks. So... I stamped some deep green textured cardstock with a plume from the CDS Plumes and Blooms set as my base. Then I made a mat with some older TAC dp, some cardstock, some stitching and some of the Peach Taffy ribbon from Clear Dollar Stamps' Clearly Coordinating Collection. My focal image is the geranium from the set Jesus Paid it All, and the words are from Pretty Little Scriptures. I watercolored the geraniums and I'm not exactly thrilled with how they turned out, but they *do* look better in real life! :-) It is amazing how enjoyable it is to have a pretty binder to write in in the morning!!
Here's the whole front cover...

Thanks for looking! I hope you'll play along with the challenge!

Blessings!
