March Crafters of Faith Challenge

Hello Stampers!  Today my card is for the Crafter's of Faith March Challenge.  Our hostess this month is the VERY talented Carolina.  She asked us to make a card using a lighthouse or something that makes you think "light". Also, we were to use two different DSP and some "bling".  Well, I got the lighthouse and the paper right, but my bling is pretty muted.  My card ended up looking pretty masculine, so rhinestones and swirls just wouldn't work!  The buckle and ribbon is "guy bling"!  (I'm stretching here, I know!!)  I am pleased with the card, except for that lovely shadow in the picture-sorry about that....

Lighthouse image is from Sweet and Sassy Stamps, DSP is from DCWV, cardstock is Stampin' Up!  Ribbon and buckle are from JoAnn's. 

Please check my sidebar for links to the other gals cards.  They are a very talented group and I am blessed to be a part of them.

Thank you for stopping in today.  Be blessed!

Happy Monday!  Today my cards are is for a Bridal Shower for a niece that is occurring on Saturday.  I am not able to attend as I will be attending a Baby Shower for another niece. That is the other card you see.  These showers are on the SAME day, at the SAME hour, in DIFFERENT towns.  Each town is about 3 hours, in DIFFERENT directions  from where I live.  I knew of the Baby shower in January and just got the invite for the Bridal shower 2 weeks ago,  sooooo the plans to attend the Baby shower had already been made.  I WILL be attending the wedding in May, though, so I guess everything works out.

This is an all Stampin' Up! card, except for the colored rhinestones that are in the center of each flower.

I love how the baby shower card turned out.  Audrey and Scott are decorating the nursery in a Noah's Ark theme and I just happened to have Debbie Mumm's Noah's Ark paper stack.  How cool is that?!  I cut the animals out and mounted them on scalloped squares cut with my Cuttlebug and Nesties.  Just love 'em!!  The background paper has a bit of a sparkle on the darker lines.  The small buttons came from WalMart.

Hope you enjoyed my offerings today.  I had a blast making them!  Thanks for stopping by and BE BLESSED!!

I "UN" Did It!

The Crafters of Faith group that I belong to was given an "UN Birthday" mini challenge this week.  Our wonderful leader, Kelly, is the brain child of this challenge. The idea is to make a birthday card, that doesn't make you think "Birthday" when you look at it.  This is what I came up with.  The card is actually for my oldest son's birthday in April.  He is a big fan of Abbott and Costello and I thought this image worked for that.  It is a freebie from Free Vintage Digital Stamps.  The circle that the image is on is actually on the inside of the card on pop dots so that it stands out when the card is closed. Cardstock is from an unknown source on an unknown planet......I've had it for YEARS and it came in an assorted pack that I purchased at a store that sells liquidated kinds of things.  Brads are from JoAnn's and the sentiment is computer generated.  The picture doesn't really allow you to see it, it says I say Old Man, "Whose On First".  This is sure to get a chuckle from my son, as he loves that Abbott and Costello skit.

Thank you for stopping by today!  Be sure and check the other gals creations, they will be posting throughout the weekend. You can find links to all their awesome sites on the sidebar. Have a most glorious weekend!!

Happy Birthday Eden!

Today is my youngest grand daughter's 1st Birthday.  She is such a cutie! her name is Eden and she has the most beautiful round face and eyes-take a look.....
This picture was taken when she was just a few months old, such a doll, don't you think?  I made the card below for her and the report is that she loved it!  Her older sister Avi, tells me that she ate it up!!  (chewed on the corner of it while she was looking at it.... :0)  )
Recipe: Gina K Luxury Brown cardstock, Stampin' Up! Whisper White, and DSP, DCWV Pink textured cardstock.  Image is a free digi that I picked up and is colored with copics. I used a glitter pen on the swirls. (you really can't see this in the picture. )  
This picture was taken outside on one of our nice days here.  I'm praying for Spring, I 'm pretty ready for it!!
Thanks for stopping by today.  God Bless!!
