She Believed She Could

I was lucky enough to win this exclusive stamp at a recent Close To My Heart event.  We had to guess logos from past Close To My Heart events, and what is funny is that the logo I guessed was from the very first event I ever attended as a consultant.  Fun!!  

I think every women should have a stamp that says these words...

This is a swing card from the Artiste cartridge (page 52 Accent 2).  I used my favorite sheet from the 
Skylark paper packet as well as the Skylark textiles.  If you look closely, there's a little piece of Lagoon zipper lace by the sentiment as well.    The flower is also from the Artiste cartridge (page 44 Accent 2 + shift), and I cut five of them in 1/4" increments to layer.   The center of the flower is a piece from the Skylark assortment, I've surrounded it with a few Aqua Dots.

Now I have to go back to that sentiment.  I feel led to say something today.

Please believe that you can.

There is so much that can trip us up in life.  
Sometimes it's a missed opportunity.  Sometimes it's illness.  
Sometimes - whatever it is - it's just not fair.

But I want you to know that you can.  
With faith and belief in yourself and the power of our God, whatever you are striving for can be in your life.

She believed she could, so she did.

Thank you for stopping in today, and I hope that your day is most blessed!!

Pin It
