Dents and Scratches

This week's Inspiration Challenge (IC630) at Splitcoaststampers is Cost Plus World Market.  I selected about eight photos which I thought might be my inspiration but then I found this wall decor. Life does not have to be perfect to be beautiful. 

I don't have a stamp set with that sentiment but I do have the Dents and Scratches kit by Unity Stamp Co.

 I don't think anyone gets to a half a century plus a few years without receiving a few dents and scratches!  This kit means even more to me this year as I am recovering from an auto accident.

My plan was to keep my card super simple and just place the sentiment on a tag to mimic the wall decor photo but then I remembered the beautiful  I Will Never Leave You kit by Phyllis Harris (also from Unity Stamp Co.) and I just had to see how they would look together.  In keeping with the photo inspiration, I kept as much uncolored space as I could with just a bit of color.

I hope that 2018 has fewer dents and scratches but if not we can rest in the hope that those dents and scratches can be made beautiful. 

In case I don't get back here with another post, I want to wish you a very Happy New Year filled with beautiful things!


  1. No more dents and scratches is my prayer for you in 2018. Lovely card

  2. There is so much I love about this card - it's just perfect ♥

    Happy New Year to you!

  3. Angie, this is so like you to encourage others when you are still not back to full steam yourself. It is a beautiful creation. Wishing blessings for you in 2018. Hugs.

  4. What a beautiful card - and yes, Jesus can make the dents and scratches beautiful. Hoping your New Year starts well and there are no more auto accidents for you!


You make my day with your sweet comments!!!! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
