"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?" by Marianne Williamson

Having fun with a smaller size!

My friend Angie makes the most wonderful things! She also makes wonderful small things and it just makes my head spin sometimes when I think of the tiny canvas she is working on. http://angiehallhaviland.typepad.com/angiesartfulllife/

I thought I'd size down my cards and make something a little smaller. Here is the result:




Here are the cards next to an original sized card. Not teeny-tiny, but smaller and I love them. :)


They are lined with paper and I found the perfect sized envelope template so I am making envelopes to go with these cute little cards. So much fun when you challenge yourself to do something just a little different...

I love your new smaller sized cards, Chrystal! Yes, our friend Angie does do amazing things with just a little space. I wanted you to know that your daffodil picture on your blog inspired the card on my blog today, so check it out if you have time. Diann
