It's Never Too Late

One of my favorite quotes is by George Eliot: "It's never too late to be who you might have been."  It's so encouraging and spurs me on to reach higher and go farther.

I made a card this week using that quote and some Spellbinder and Memory Box dies, which is larger than I usually make; sometimes there is just not enough real estate on an A2 card, so this one is 8 1/2" by 5 1/2 ". Cream colored cardstock was used. The background is made from a brown paper lunch sack--the kind you get at the grocery store, and it is embossed with a basket weave EF.

Here are the tools used to make the card:

  • Spellbinders: Foliage, Carnation Creations, Basket Weave EF, Moroccan Accents, Nestabilities: Labels 22
  • LifestyleCrafts: Nesting Flowers
  • MemoryBox: Pippi Butterfly

And here is the card:




Ugh.  Not very attractive. This card looks totally clumsy and not what I want to give to anyone. In addition, the print on the sentiment appears to be rubbing off.  Not acceptable.

So I reworked the card into something I like much better.  Here is the transformed card:





I plan to enter this card in the Word Art Wednesday and Flutterby Wednesday challenges.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog.  I pray for God's highest and best for all who happen by here, both today and every day!

Many rich blessings,

Ginny B.
