This card is for today's F4A challenge which is to pick a HOPE challenge to make a card for. I picked 1310, inspiring words. Though it is often difficult to do, I believe in the midst of pain and problems and sorrows and hardships, we need to recognize our blessings and continue to feel and express GRATITUDE for what we had and have, as we HOPE for a better tomorrow.
My card was inspired by our new and awesome QFTD, Pat (imastamper):
I kept the same basic layout but made it a one layer card, by layering stamps for my bkgrds instead of using dp and torn cardstock. I stamped a linen bkgrd base and a printed word bkgrd for my main SU fall spray image. I used a different sentiment and added twine. It's kinda cool because on the lighter water-colored images, you can see the texture of the linen and tiny words coming through. :) Don't know if you can see it in the picture?
I am also submitting it for yesterday's WT448, to use the first letter of your user name as the theme or design of your card. G is for GRATITUDE.
My member name was an accident. Hee! I had just watched one of my all-time fav movies, Camelot (for the zillionth time!) and I was thinking of Lancelot in the boat, on the water and his piercing baby blues. The "gab" part kind of coincided w/my main email address so I just typed in gabalot. The next day I realized it was a "stupid" name and I tried to change it but couldn't. Lydia advised you can't change your i.d. except in very specific situations and mine was not one. Drats! I often do leave "gabby" comments and I do gab with a few of my SCS acquaintances and friends so I guess it has turned out okay. :) Now if I could only figure out how to get a picture on there.
THANKS for looking! :)
