Blogger's Challenge #50 - Black and White


It's interesting -- life imitates art. I have two lessons from the Blogger's Challenge card I am posting today ... Lessons for ME to remember...

  1. First, Life IS Good! And I should never forget that. I am blessed and happy. I am well-fed, well-loved, creatively satisfied. Life is good.

  2. Second, this card may be Black and White, but not everything else is!

Hope your weekend is wonderful. I am going to a stamp convention to spend time and money with friends. What about you?


Check out the posts from the other Blogger's Challenge Players - they are listed in my sidebar.

Beautiful, Pat! I never would have thought to combine these two stamp sets, but you made it work so well.

Lessons learned! You are so right, LIFE IS GOOD -- and it can always be worse no matter what we face others have it WAY worse so we need to be thankful. You card by the way is really GOOD!

GinaP said...

those are two GREAT lessons learned... who knew a card could teach us so much? lol Honestly, this is a very pretty card and it inspires me to make a b&w card since it's been a long time since I've done so. Thanks for the inspiration.

Anyway, great looking card- like the texture and color.
