Wide Open Spaces

Hello  Friends!

Happy Wednesday....

Leave the busyness of life behind, with an awe-inspiring wilderness retreat! Breathe deeply, enjoy a starry sky, and immerse yourself fully in the tranquility of nature! Enjoy the isolation of a quaint little cabin in the woods, surrounded by statuesque trees, towering mountain views, and a quietly winding river! Enjoy a day trip that begins at the water’s edge! Push off the canoe and paddle your way to becoming one with the great outdoors…perhaps the ducks will share their favorite spot among the reeds, as the trout jump from the water, beckoning you to paddle further upstream! As the dusk begins to settle, listen for the howling coyotes in the distance and enjoy the deer grazing silently in the meadows. By now it’s time to head back to the cabin, lay your head on the pillow and dream about the new adventures tomorrow will bring! Join us as we take time to pause, slow down, and enjoy God’s beautiful creations with the new Wilderness Retreat Collection from Heartfelt Creations! Take a hike through this tranquil paper collection filled with illustrations of glorious wilderness scenes featuring old mills, babbling brooks, mountainside cabins, and a variety of wildlife! Rustic browns, river blues, sunrise yellows, and sunset reds create incredible backdrops for pleasing plaids, stunning stripes, and charming checkered patterns, perfect for all of your masculine themed creations! A wonderful assortment of wilderness themed cling stamp sets, along with coordinating dies, are sure bring all of your outdoor themed paper crafting creations to life, and allow you to create an abundance of different wilderness settings for all of your handmade greeting cards, scrapbook layouts, and memory keeping albums! Create breathtaking views with beautifully detailed illustrations of wilderness cabins, old work mills, fish filled rivers, howling coyotes, and soaring eagles. Create your own escape from reality, with the beauty and tranquility of the Wilderness Retreat Collection!  Here is my first take using this collection.
