Never Give Up!

It's Thursday, which means I get to post today on the 3 Girl JAM blog.  Yea!  I can never get enough 3 Girl JAM!  I'm particularly excited about today's card because it has special meaning to me.  The sentiment really speaks to me.  As we go through life, we can NEVER give up!

I used lots of 3 Girl JAM goodness on this card.  I started with a layer of jute ribbon, added some distressed lace, then topped it off with some of the brand new tie dye ribbon. Works fantastic together, doesn't it? If you'd like some for yourself, use discount code JO10 in the 3 Girl JAM store for 10% off anything!  Any thing!
The stamped image and sentiment are from Great Impressions Stamps.   Their stickable stamps are some of the best out there.  I love to work with them.  They are having a design team call right now, and this is one of the cards I submitted for the call.  Wish me luck!
Everywhere I turn, I'm seeing watercolor paints on cards, so I decided to try my hand at it with this card.  I used a fine detail brush for the tricycle, then a wider brush for the wash.
The bicycle paper was given to me by a friend because she knows I love to bike.  I don't know the company, I apologize.  It seemed the perfect background paper for the stamped image.
So, never give up!  Never. Give. Up!


  1. I spent several hours playing with water colors yesterday. My daughter told me as she was patiently trying to instruct me on a few techniques...just keep trying mom, you'll get it. So...this card is perfect for the day I had! Love know I love bicycling and yep, I have taken a few spills. You did a great job on your water coloring!! Thanks for the great advice.
