One Step At A Time

Good morning to you all.  Well after a few nasty days yesterday was lovely - as it should be since it is supposed to be summer!

I have another encouragement card today. This person loves mountains and since I only have three mountain images this is the last one. I shall now have to check out some digi providers or trawl the internet to find some more.

My Card

6" x 6" base card made from grey pearlescent card stock
from Jelly Bean Crafts
Auvergne die - Sue Wilson French Collection
Mountain stamp - Our Daily Bread Designs "Keep Climbing"
White die cut - Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles
Sentiment - Computer generated
Other papers from stash
Pearls from stash

I actually stamped the image with Memento London Fog onto some cloudy sky paper  and it seems to have worked out pretty well. The sentiment says "One can walk over the highest mountain ... one step at a time" by Barbara Walters.  I think that is something we could all keep in mind.

Well that's all from me for today.  I hope you are all keeping well.

Take care.

Lovely stamping on the pattern paper. It really looks like a very foggy mountain scene, early morning. Very pretty image and works wonderfully with the dark mat die shape against the soft blue gingham checks. Sure to bring good feelings to whomever is lucky enough to receive it and know they are in your thoughts. TFS & Hugs
