the LORD directs his steps…

A man’s heart plans his way, but the LORD directs his steps. ~ Proverbs 16:9

I’m hanging out at home tonight getting stampy for Virtual Stamp Night at Splitcoaststampers. This is my card for the first challenge of the night, Blue Waters, hosted by my friend, Beate. I had *NO* issue with the colors of the challenge, but to kick things up a notch I promised myself (and Jenn) that I wouldn’t end up using white flowers. LOL. I tried to catch the Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz on the kraft blooms with my camera to no avail. They sure are sparkly!

This came together for me very quickly, and I was excited to use some of my new stamping goodies that I had been hoarding. I’m off to work on challenge #2. If you find time to stamp this weekend, join us. You’ll find a master list of challenges here, and you have until 8 PM eastern, Monday, May 23rd to share your creations. Have a great weekend!
