Life is Good Blog Hop

Hello, and Welcome!  Tonight we are featuring the stamp set "Life is Good" by Theresa Momber.

You're invited here,  so come, smell
the fragrant pine as the cold winter air blows, mingling it with the snow laying on it's branches.  Feel the gentle crunch of snow, as it breaks beneath your feet, while you carefully make a path toward the curiously soft light you see illuminating from the cabin window.  Tonight you will sleep under the stars in a warm, pine bed while keeping watch of the cabin light.  You'll hear magical sounds as water laps against a mossy lakeside shore, and feel the distant rumble of a freight train as it makes it's way toward the world of hustle and bustle, a world away from this peaceful place, where life is good.






For even more inspiration tonight with the Life is Good stamp set, check out these links:

Cheri, both of your cards are gorgeous!! I love the way you led me in with such descriptive words that I could see the cabin in mind before I saw your card! Amazing!!

Wow, Cheri, both your cards are beautiful. I love the white ink on the snowflake background on the first and the trees with train on your second.

Colleen Schaan said...

Cheri, these are lovely cards! I love the embossing and sponging on the first one and the way the train is coming right off the page on the second one. GREAT inspiration. TFS
