Challenge 250 - Inspired by Words

Hello friends of Time Out!

Thank you everyone who played along in our previous 'Vintage' challenge... It's time for a new challenge for the next fortnight! 

In our new challenge we are Inspired by Words:

"When we focus on our gratitude, 
the tide of disappointment goes out and the tide of love rushes on"
Kristin Armstrong

You can use the whole quote as your starting point or just be inspired by one word or some words like "tide", "gratitude" or "love". Plenty of possibilities here! 

This challenge is sponsored by Poppy Stamps with a $20 store credit to our winner, chosen by our DT. Our winner also gets called to guest design in a future challenge. Thank you Poppy Stamps for being our generous sponsor!

This time we welcome Deb Horst, frequent player at Time Out and winner of #247, as our Guest Designer.  You can check out Deb's awesome creative work on her blog, Sendable Sentiments. Treat yourself to a visit to her blog and leave her some love. You are sure to be inspired by her wonderful work.

Here is a little bit about Deb in her own words:

"I am married to a wonderful man (next July makes 35 years) and we have 2 adult children--a son who lives on Long Island, NY and a daughter who lives in Chicago. We live in Florida, which feels so very far away from our kids, especially since we have two grandkids (granddaughter who is 3 & grandson who is 1) living in Chicago!! For over 20 years I was a Stampin' Up Demonstrator, but in 2021 I let go of my demonstratorship after our move to FL. I still love scrapbooking & creating cards and have enough Stampin' Up products to last me through I will keep on creating!!  Since crafting doesn't pay the bills (it only creates them) I work as a para-professional in our local middle school."

And now for a look at Deb's fabulous card which you can also link to HERE:
