IB23 Summer on the Porch

Hi, everyone!  Thursday's here...ahhhh, almost the end of the week!  It's time for another Inspired By challenge too, and we've got a sponsor this week--Unity Stamps!  Be sure to check out blog to see all the details!  They have some sweet images, and for my card today, I chose a wee little flower and Bible verse called Humble and Gentle:

And here's Laurel's prompt that inspired me!  Doesn't that look like a cozy scene??

For my card, I stamped my image with Soft Suede and Versamark inks and embossed it with clear embossing powder, then used Crushed Curry, Real Red, and Granny Apple Green to color it.  It's a bit hard to read, but the verse is Ephesians 4:2: "Be completely humble and gentle, bearing with one another in LOVE":

Isn't that sweet?  For my banner, I used some really old Cosmo Cricket papers, then dry embossed the Whisper White panel with the Modern Mosaic embossing folder.  It all went on top of a Crushed Curry card base, and I used some Summer Starfruit thick baker's twine for the embellishment.  And my layout is from the Sunday Stamps sketch, turning it on its side:

Be sure to check out the IB blog, because the designers have created some lovely things!!!  We'd like to have to share yours as well!

So here are the 25 goodie bags that Cassidy filled up for her school summer birthday party!!  

And doing a little ROYGBIV artwork:

Not sure what the guy is doing on top of the snowglobe-looking thingy on top of the rainbow...but who am I to question creativity?!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I've been surfing on-line more than three hours today, yet I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours.
It is lovely value sufficient for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the web will be a lot more useful
than ever before.
