Meaningful Days

"A day passes, another day arrives.
The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend or a meaningful day."
Dalai Lama


Sky Watch Friday is the best kind of day full of views of the sky from all over the world.

My card making friends often ask for ideas on how to make nice ‘guy’ cards, aside from the usual browns and cars and golf how can you make some thing masculine.
This is a card I am making for a sweet friend on the theme of journey to love. A combination of Tattered Angels Compass & Timeless Romance screens and stamps on their embossed postcard chip tile and tinted in shades of Waterslide. To make things just a bit more meaningful, the addition of postage stamps from special places or tickets from events is just the perfect touch. Wishing everyone a happy Valentines Day.
