Savor the Sweetness


I made this card for my daughter who will be going to a Walk to Emmaus - I heard from her sponsor and was requested for cards/letters so that while DD is at the retreat she would receive these letters/cards. I made her 2 cards - one which I posted for the Spring Blog Hop just a day or two ago. This one I made with a versatile set called Savor the Sweetness - it had the perfect images and I chose the one with the sunshine. I made a gatefold card and DP from Heidi Grace - colored the image with copics (I just took the beginner copic certification this past weekend in St. Louis). I cut it out with nesties 19 and covered up an oops with a pretty little flower with a butterfly perched on the flower. Oops aren't mistakes just opportunities to add embellishments!! I hope she enjoys getting her special cards while she is there.

I hope that she loves her Walk to Emmaus experience. It was life changing for my family - 10 years ago this month.

It was so wonderful to meet you!
