Finally, Give us your favorite design tip... Relax and let your creativity flow. When I try too hard things never seem to work!

Good Morning Blog Followers! I am happy Laura is back and in full swing! She asked me to be her guest designer for March, since she was out of commission during January! Of coarse I accepted and am so happy she is back and feeling better! Laura has a new illustrator and some awesome new stamp sets! I am so blessed to be able to work with her and her new sets! My favorite of the 3sets is " Arms of Jesus" The sentiments in this set are amazing! I will use them a lot! Laura's stamps are so versatile they will fit any creative style!

The sentiments in this set can stand alone! They are just plain wonderful! I also used one of the sentiments on the inside of my card!

My picture isn't showing the colors of this card very well! My card base is mellow moss layered with very vanilla and dp from a mat stack. My sentiment is resting on an oval cut out with nesties. I carried the dp to the inside. You could use this card for many things, illness, death or for encouragement. Pop over the Creative Clear stamps and check things out!! Thanks again Laura for this opportunity! See you again next Monday!
