Pinecone Wreath

Hello All,

For today per Monika's, from Creative with Monika, request I am playing along with Daring Cardmakers and let me tell you I will be regular at this challenge site.  The inspiration cards are incredible and the challenges are thought provoking and well.... Challenging!! Here is my card for today, enjoy!


No it is not a mistake, I did leave a 'nail' out of the board. It needed to be imperfect. The wood is 'weathered' which I think is beautiful and is true to the feel of the photo.





Challenges Entered:
Darling Cardmakers: Elemental Inspiration 
(Elements used: Bow, Berries, Sentiment, Wood accent)



Having faith can be a pretty tall order. The kind of faith that someday all will be well with the world. Especially this time of year, when we reflect on the previous year and reminisce, and then look to the future with new optimism and hope. I have faith that future will be bright, it might take a bit, but happiness, love, and hope is what always prevails. Having faith in each other is what keeps us... well... together!  To quote the singer, George Michael in his 1987 album 'Faith':

'Cause I've gotta have faith Unh I gotta faith
Because I gotta to have faith, faith, faith
I gotta to have faith, faith, faith


There is your earworm for today! You can thank me later with your scathing comments... LOL..

Thank you so much for joining me for the second time today at TheGrandStampede. Take care everyone and we will see you all sooner then later.

All the best,
Shawna
