double dippin'...pp#30

hi tracey, momma, friends old and new!

this week at the paper plunge, we are asking everyone to take our challenge sketch and meld it with another challenge in the world of paper crafting.  i decided to use the card concept along with our own sketch.  i needed to make a card for a friend and thought these two ideas really worked together. (you may need to use your imagination to see the sketch in was late and i was tired!)

this is what i came up with...

the card concept has defined styles...i would call mine classy and elegant.  i took the liberty to use silver in place of gray...i think they are in the same family, right?  

i just spent the weekend with my hubby...most of which was on the motorcycle.  it was finally a gorgeous day, so off to new hope, pa, we went!  it was so nice to be outside riding the winding the winding roads took us to my favorite ice cream place, but still, it was wonderful! 

so i guess balance is the name of the game!  the fun part about the weekend?  i did a little bit of all the things i love...stamp, ride, cook, eat, indulge.  my heart is happy!

in eat, pray, love by liz gilbert, (i met her in her store in frenchtown.  i called her elizabeth.  she replied, "oh, please.  call me liz!"), she wrote... 

"he showed me a sketch he'd drawn once during meditation.  it was an androgynous human figure, standing up, hands clasped in prayer.  but this figure had four legs, and no head.  where the head should have been, there was only a wild foliage of ferns and flowers.  there was a small, smiling face drawn over the heart.  to find the balance you want," ketut spoke through his translator, "this is what you must become.  you must keep your feet grounded so firmly on the earth that it's like you have four legs, instead of two.  that way, you can stay in the world, but you must stop looking at the world through your head.  you must look through your heart, instead."

i hope that you will think of ketut's words this week...follow your heart in all you do.

i appreciate you.

until next time-
peace be with you.
