Never Alone ...

I'm a bit amazed at how easy it felt to create today's card.  This one is a bit rare, in that becoming friendly with the concept of 'clean & simple' design has been tricky for me.  Participating in online CAS challenges has  proven to be a helpful learning tool for me, coupled with the vision loss of the recent 3-4 years.  Now I'm even willing to say that change can be a good thing!  So ... here's one that just seemed to fall into its CAS place with ease:

One of the first things I like to do when opening new stampy toys & tools is to simply mess around with them, i.e. play!  I like to ink up the stamps that insisted on being bought & see them in color on my card stock scraps.  As soon as I inked up this Picket Fence Studios stamp from 'Exhale Worry' ... I knew it needed to be the simple focus of a card.  This simple 'Spokes' stencil called out to me and sure enough .. the card was on its way to being created.  

I smoothed on 'Coastal' Chalkology Paste, then set it aside for a short time to dry.  While it dried, I heat embossed the sentiment and chose the die shape.  Tiny little rhinestones became the final touch.

I'm sure I'll make more of these.  I love the subtle, simplicity of this one.  There are times when one feels so alone ... and this is a beautiful reminder to Christians that we are never truly alone.  It makes my heart smile.

**Just a Note:  I'm beginning reclaim studio storage space and will be selling bunches of stamps & stampy supplies on this blog as well as through my Facebook page/group.  Pages/categories will be found listed beneath my blog header above.  New pages will be added for more categories across Summer 2019.  Check back often, and/or ask to be invited to the 4 Sale group via my Texas Rubber & Ink! facebook page!
