Ask, Seek, Knock

These two cards were made prior to the release of the door set at Sugar Creek Hollow, consequently I never shared them with you. So I thought I would go ahead and post them.

This set is one of my favorites, it can be used as I have done with a faith theme but the door can be used as a "new home" card, "welcome" card, "Christmas" card; I'll bet you can think of other ways to use it! It is so versatile and looks good anyway you decide to showcase it!

On the first one I made it more of a spring or summer card with the flowers around the door, the second card feels more like a winter card with the stark look of bare branches on either side of the door. Each card presents a different feeling, which one do you like the best?  As I sit here I am thinking of other ways to presenting this image. One of the design team members made a beautiful Christmas card, it was just stunning!

Hopefully you are having a blessed weekend with sunshine and warmth, to my dear friends in the "north country" ..... take heart, spring is definitely on the way!

Donna, your cards are just stunning, I love the foliage you use on the top "spring" one. I like the idea of using it as a welcome card, it could also be used for an invitation to a friend or family member living far away to come visit.
