The Purpose of Life

Good afternoon.
I just love the sentiment on this card and think it perfectly fits us 'card-makers' (if you are anything like me that is lol!!!)

This is what it says:

So how does that fit me (and many other card-makers alike)? Well, it was only about 2 years ago that I discovered I had the 'gift' of being able to make cards and what do I do with the cards I make - well I give them away mostly!!

Anyways this is the card that I have made for the Just Magnolia 'Criss-Cross' challenge this week - just making it in time by the skin of my teeth, but I wanted to wait for delivery of my scrummy new Wild Orchid flowers so that I could also enter the Totally Tilda 'Chocolate' challnege again!

This used:
Gorgeous Fairy Dust Tilda coloured with PM's and a sprinkling of Stardust Stickles.
DP's - K&Co
Martha Stewart - Daisy Fan Deep Edge punch, Double Loops border punch, Butterfly & Frond punch
Gorgeous Wild Orchid Blooms
Adhesive Pearls from Hobby House Craft
Sentiment - DCVW Vellum Quotes
Prima Flowers and K&Co star brad

Hope you have had a lovely day.
Thanks for popping over.

Hi Debs

This is a beautiful creation but I disagree with your interpretation of your sentiment.

I do not see it as your gift is being able to make cards and then you give them away .. .. I see it that your gift is that you can make beautiful cards and you share them with us all in blogland for us to be inspired by.

Love Jules xx
