WSC30: So Kind

wsc30-lcraig-011108.jpg

Woo-hoo for Friday! Today’s sketch (Has Beate really been at this for 30 weeks already?) is in response to the support I received yesterday for the Divine Design challenge. Y’all were just ‘so kind’, so open, so willing. Thank you for all of the comments and emails that I received. You sure know how to make a heart warm and be encouragers. 

It was fun to work the pieces of this challenge together. I thought the sketch was going to be easy-peasy, but em…all of the white space was tricky. Finally, I cut and and embossed the ‘so kind’ sentiment with my Nestabilities and then laid it back into the negative white space. That seemed to give me the pop that I wanted without ‘extra’ stuff.
