Thank You - One Layer Wednesday

Hai..hai.. happy Friday, everyone... It's the first Friday of the month.

My dedicated friends and I were tremendously busy preparing for the retreat. We'll go tomorrow morning. There will be more than 100 persons, using 4 buses and 6 cars, to go to Puspanita, 5-6 hours traveling. I know it will make them get bored along that long way. So, we prepared for the snack boxes, lunch boxes, and some candies. I myself surprisingly will give each of them a small book containing not only everything about the retreat but also two dozens of gospels that we can sing along the way. Thinking of singing together on the bus makes me thrilled. Wow.. that's the experience I will treasure, as I did it the last time when I was still single. (around twenty years ago.. Well, am I that old now? Oh..no... LOL..)

And here are some more one layer 'jobs' I did last night, bookmarkers with the Bible verses on it. Of course, it is in Bahasa Indonesia... It's one layer overlapping. I made 106 pieces. I printed the versed on the papers and stamped them. With Ivy leaves, I stamped one by one. With Silhouette Grass, I stamped twice at a time. I used Distress Inks this time. They were laminated. They come in 2 colors of cardstock and ribbon.

Ok, that's all about me and the retreat.

And just now, again, I could 'steal' a little time to make this simple and quick card with my fave technique.... I think one layer is the most simple, the easiest to make, the most efficient but still beautiful way to make cards. And for me, at this time, one layer is the best way to join many challenges (though this time only one..)

This time, the OLW is about Repetition, that means stamping small object repeatedly. On this card, I also repated the flowers thrice, without re-inking the stamp. I shall give this card to Sister Lenny who takes care the place where we are going to have a retreat. Here is my take.

All stamps for the bookmarkers and the card are from Hero Arts.

Thanks for looking and happy weekend. See you next week, everyone...

Those bookmarkers are just beautiful Dwita - what a wonderful idea but I reckon it was a lot of work - but work that will bear fruit! I will stayed tuned to hear how the retreat went.
