God Shed His Grace on Thee!!

It's Monday!! Woo-Hoo!! I actually love Mondays. It's my get back on track day so to speak...I plan my week and get the most accomplished.

Well, today I have another Our Daily Bread Designs Sneak Peak. Kelley has two new sets that will become available May 1. You'll want to check these out. They're awesome!! This set has some fabulous sentiments. Can't wait for you to see them all. I feel like I'm channeling Silke (Blog - My Life). She makes the most exquisite, clean and crisp cards, and often with a lot of white space. That's not my forte, but this idea popped in my head. Probably because when I visit her blog, I just gaze and gaze at her creations. She's quite the inspiration.

For the scored bg panel, I just lined up my white panel on my Scor-Pal, and scored all the lines (vertically and horizontally) in order to give it a plaid look instead of a checked!

Monday is also the day I do my weekly challenge with my CCEE group. Cindy challenged us to use a tool or product that hasn't seen much love lately. So I hauled out my Queen & Company sprinkles brads. Click HERE to see what old tools or products the other gals dug out of hibernation.

The shapes were all diecut with Nestabilities (Spellbinders). The little stars were leftovers from a Martha Stewart snowflake embossed border punch. And the multicolored mini- rhinestones are by Zva. The border was also punched with the Martha Stewart Wavy Border.

You can click on the photos for a closer look.
Have a FANTASTIC week my friends!!
