Believe in Yourself - Card Set by Yvonne van de Grijp, Guest Designer

Hello everyone, it's Yvonne here today.

First of all, thank you so much for your lovely comments on my first guest designer blogpost on July 9th....it´s such a pleasure to create with Quietfire´s beautiful stamps!



Today it´s time for my second guest designer blogpost.

When I saw the Quietfire stamp set "If You Don't Believe in Miracles"(#5685), I immediately knew I had to have it....

I guess like most of us, I can relate so well to these stamps, for sometimes it can be hard to believe in yourself and that everything will be okay again eventually....

So, the cards I made,  made especially for all of you.... as a positive thought to remind that we should always believe in ourselves and in our strength.... 




Card 1:  If you don't believe in miracles".....  (additional suggested product links are at the bottom of this post)
