To hear the Angels


Good morning Peeps, hope your week is going well.

I only just remembered my mid month shares for Stamping Sensations and Penny Black and More challenges which is ludicrous given that I did both the challenge posts yesterday, also my work from my post here over at the Chocolate Baroque blog.

I'm struggling somewhat with typing and screen work because as I mentioned the other day my close vision is poor and glasses can't be sorted until four weeks after the last op, so posts and comments are short and sweet I'm afraid.

My top card uses a Bee Crafty sentiment and stencil along with Heartfelt Creations flowers.


I used a number of Penny Black stamps on this one to build up he scene over an oxide background.

And my Chocolate Baroque shares using the beautiful Blueprint stamps designed by Lesley............

Che meravigliosa card per iniziare il tuo post, Brenda!! Adoro quel sentiment e i tuoi fiori Heartfelt Creations!!Il bordo aggiunge delicatezza e attira benissimo l'attenzione!! Mi piace molto anche la card con l'uccellino sul ramo fiorito, che splendida composizione!! Io non sono molto brava a mascherare e quindi a sovrapporre più timbri. Hai creato una scena dolcissima, mi sembra quasi di sentire i suoni della campagna!
Ho ammirato i tuoi esempi per CB sul loro sito e mi piace l'effetto dei colori che hai usato, fanno davvero risaltare i disegni dei timbri!
Grazie per i bei commenti che mi lasci sempre, so quanta fatica ti costano adesso... e spero che tu trovi di nuovo i tuoi occhiali!!! Io senza occhiali non sono capace di fare nulla... Ho solo quattro decimi da un occhio da quando ero rgazzina e con l'età sono diventata miope e anche un po' presbite, quindi è difficile fare cose sia da vicino che da lontano. Senza occhiali sono persa!
Un grande abbraccio

Hi B. Chuckled at ability to recall from one day to next issues, tis same here, also I find it’s more than normal after surgery which you’ve just had, the anaesthetic seems to exacerbate it. Since I’ve read of eyes issues, I’ve been praying re sight for long duration all your life, no harm in asking big, we have a big God. You’re on my list daily anyway so not much more that quick addition as pray.

My favourite is first card, I adore those flowers and think they maybe stamped on vellum. You’re definitely on a yellow them today and those stamps are very innovative.
Thanks for sharing, had both cataracts done so know re waiting for glasses! I’ve also optic atrophy since early teens, back then I lost about half in both eyes, but wonderfully merciful of Lord, they are lost in way that the left eye visual field fills in for right, and vica versa so it sorts itself out.
It’s merciful indeed of LORD that it’s pretty stable for decades now and no more loss I’m praying long may it continue. I was told otherwise, in late 1970s, but they were wrong re going blind before end of my 30’s, so praying same for you!
Thanks for Sharing, God bless,
hugs Shaz in Oz.x

pinky said...

So many gorgeous cards Brenda but the first one had me when I saw those beautiful flowers!!

Kathleen said...

Gosh Brenda, I really don't know where to start, there are some brilliant creations and colours, not to mention the super images, most of them seem to have a touch of yellow or orange, funnily enough I have decided to try to use those two colours more ofter this year. I just love those flowers on the first card, they are stunning.
