Words 2 Craft By Mid Challenge Reminder

This month's words of gratitude come to us from Sam Lefkowitz.
When asked if my cup is half-empty or half-full 
my only response is that I am thankful I have a cup.
I found a 12 x 12 sheet from American Crafts with small blocks with sayings.  I love these for mass producing cards.  Bonus - it coordinated nicely an Echo Park paper pad I already owned!

Ombre Teal

The challenge form Just U Girls this week is Shade of Teal:
I need a few more cards for my sister's birthday gift.  She likes cards that are encouraging and CAS.
I used Iced Spruce Distress Oxide to create the ombre effect on the heat embossed strip.  Since I didn't have the exact paper to match, I inked a piece of white paper before I die cut "Prayers".  I really like this layout with the inking for added interest.  Come play along with us at Words 2 Craft By where ur glass is half full!!
