Be Still, Be Still.

Be sure to get your black/white/splash of colored cards linked today to the original Day 3 post if you'd like a chance at winning the Swan Song set from Firecracker Designs! I used the poem from the Swan Song set on this card - the other stamp is from a set called Just Breathe, which has got to be my favorite from FCD (in case you were wondering!). I thought it would be cool to have the girl watching a rising moon. The shading is all done with a black Prismacolor pencil blended with OMS, and I colored in her jacket with a red marker. This one got a "WOW" from DH...! Always affirming. ;)

We're planning a quick trip to Singapore next week for some doctor appointments bn(leave Sunday 1/11 and return Friday the 16th) - the planning part has been the quick part of it - somehow it seems like this week only had 6 days in it...not sure how that happened! Anyway - I have some posts scheduled that you won't want to miss...and should have internet access once we get settled there. We get to go through Kuala Lumpur this time, so that will be a new experience (fly to KL and take a bus to Singapore - but we hear the bus is really nice!).

  1. A bus from KL? How does that work? Does it connect by ferry? Praying you have a GREAT trip and a profitable, even relaxing, time!!
