French Foliage peaceful card by Stampin Up and me

Hi dear Stampers.
 I am happy you found your way back here to my blog. I so enjoyed creating these 2 cards the other day, I had hopped over to the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenges and this is what their # 162 challenge was all about:
Make a card that to you represents peace or calm; with an image, color scheme, CAS layout or verse, something that speaks peace to you. The card has to speak peace through your own style.

Wow, how I loved creating this card for this challenge. And the cards the ladies of this Challenge have created are so sweet and inspirational, just like their little devotional they shared with us.  Please hop over to their beautiful blog to be inspired!
If you would know me a little,
than I think you knew that while you were looking at these 2 cards, that it is my style of creating cards, right :)
Does it speak 'peace' to you?

I love how the images and the softness of these cards bring out (a bit) the beauty of Gods creation. I know.. nothing can be compared to His creation.. but I tried :)
As a family we love being in His nature, to soak up all the beauty He has placed in Canada!
We are blessed to live in this gorgeous country!

I also would like to ad this card to the Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge blog #141, where it is all about Fall this week. As always they have the most gorgeous cards displayed on their blog. Please take a peek, you will not be disappointed :) It's such a great place to just get a huge smile on your face after seeing all the beauty that is there.
Thanks ladies for this challenge.. it was just what I needed to get going! 

Here is another version of this type of card :)
Isn't this birds nest super lovely? It is from a beautiful retired Stampin Up set: Feathered Hope.

The other images that you see are from the current French Foliage Stampin Up stamp set. (#121166 - $17.95, see page 86 of you Stampin Up catalogue) Or click on this link to visit my online Stampin Up store to purchase this beautiful set.
Create the romance of a leisurely fall afternoon spent in a French café writing thoughts and impressions in a journal with the images in this set. With French script and ink spatter backgrounds accented by life-like leaf and post mark accents, you can create beautiful cards.

Well, I have to leave it short today, as I have lots of cutting to do for the upcoming event.
One more week. I am so excited :)
Have a beautiful Sunday tomorrow!
Inky hugs, Pauline
