May Flowers-Crafter's of Faith

Happy last day of May!  My card today is for the Crafter's of Faith group I belong to.  The awesome Patti was our hostess this month and she asked that we create a card with a "May Basket" theme.

  My May basket is a hanging basket.  The "basket" is embossed with an SU folder and then cut with large scalloped square nestie.  The flowers were cut from some paper that I have been carting around for a VERY long time.  Background paper is from Stampin' Up! also.  The basket is hanging with a cord I crocheted and is held in place with a small brad from JoAnn's. 

Be sure to check out the other girls' creations.  We are a talented and blessed group of ladies!  Thanks so much for stopping in today.  Big BLESSINGS!!

For the David-man

Happy Tuesday, all!  My card today is for a grandson who will turn 5 years old on Friday. He is an absolute cutie, with big brown eyes and a mischievous grin!  I just love him to pieces!  But then I feel the same way about my other 9 grandkids! 

Cardstock is from Stampin' Up!, DSP is DCWV.  Image is a digi from Bugaboo.  I just love their stamps, so whimsical!
Hope you enjoy your day!  Thanks for stopping in.  Blessings!

Happy Day, Friends!  The card today was from my Mom for Mother's Day.  She loves purple, so this just spoke to me.  No stamping involved.......Embossing folder and DSP did all the work.....(I like it when that happens.)  The flower is actually four layers and a brad-VIOLLA!!  BAMMM!  Done!
I like it when that happens!

Well, I have a few cards I need to get done, so off I go!  Have a blessed day!  *SMILE!*
Thank you for stopping by today.

COF Mini May Challenge

Happy Friday everyone!  The sun is shining and the weekend looks lovely!  I took some time to stamp this morning and I am pleased with the result.  This card is for the mini challenge with the Crafter's of Faith group that I belong to.  This is a close knit group of believing girls who share their craft and pray for one another.  We are spread out all over the country and in Canada. It is a blessing to know there are gals who I can share with and KNOW they are praying when there is a need!

This week our awesome leader, Kelly asked us to create a card using green/yellow'purple and have something floral.  I found this image in my file of already stamped images.  I enjoyed coloring it, using koh-i-noor pencils and blending with mineral spirits.  I have much better results when I use this medium, rather than Copic markers, don't know why I stress myself......;o). Card base and DSP are from Stampin' Up!  Flowers brads are from JoAnn's (LOVE that place!!) I used nesties to cut the oval and scallop oval, then used my Scor Pal along the bottom.  Don't know if the picture lets you see this, the grass is hiding it a bit. 

Be sure to check out the creations of the others ladies, you will find the links to their sites on my sidebar.  You will be blessed by their work and by the sweet spirit of each of them. 

Have a blessed day and hug your Momma this weekend!!

Happy Wednesday everyone!  My card today is for Mother's Day for my husband's Mom.  She is  a sweet Christian lady who has treated my like her own for a lot of years.  Please excuse the shadow on the picture, I was trying to beat the sprinklers here at the rv park.

Thank you for stopping by and.....
Have a happy day!  Hug someone you love!!

Wedding Card for Allie and Eric

Hello and Happy Friday!  We returned home from our trip last Friday and I have been playing catch up since! The card I have for you today is for a niece's wedding tomorrow.  Allie is a young at heart girl and she has chosen White, Hot Pink and Black as her wedding colors. Haven, one of our granddaughter's is serving as flower girl-I'll post a picture!  
Cardstock and stamps are from Stampin' Up! Glitter paper is DCWV (I think).  I used a spring flower cuttlebug folder and the flourishes are from a set of dies that my hubby bought for me years ago from Archivers. 
I'm sorting through pictures of our trip and hope to post some of them soon.  We took well over 1000 pictures, so it is a bit of a chore.
Have a happy day and a wonderful weekend!!
