Crafter's of Faith August Challenge

Happy last day of August!  Since it is the last day of the month, the Crafter's of Faith girls will all post their challenge cards .  Please check my sidebar for links to all the other beautiful creations from this group.
Liz W is our hostess this month and she asked us to create a card using our birthstone color.  My birthday is in July, that means "RUBY".  My card is made using all Stampin' Up! products.  The stamp set is "Upsy Daisy", a classic, go to set for me.  You just can't go wrong with it.  Life has been pretty busy this month since hubby and I are transitioning into the management position here at our RV park.  Upsy Daisy pulled me through.......

A pretty, easy straight forward card, pretty useable and practical.  Thank you for popping in, I'm off to look at the other girls' creations, please join me.....Have a happy day!

Baby Boy Card

HAPPY TUESDAY! My card today is for the former manager of the RV park here. She and her husband are expecting a baby boy any day now.  It has been so HOT, she is so anxious!!  I anxious for her too.  Love to hold babies, I'm hoping I will get the opportunity to hold the little guy before they move.

Cardstock is from Stampin' UP!  Whisper White and Not Quite Navy (I think).  The image is one I picked up at Big Lots a long time ago.  DSP is from a Debbie Mumm pack a few years ago. Ribbon is SU also.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a wonderful day!!

Alyah's Birthday

My goodness, it has been so long since I have posted.  Life has been SO busy, busy.  Fall is coming, so things should slow down a bit.  Hubby and I are now managing an RV park full time.  The transition has taken a big bite out of my day!  I'm getting a bit faster at my daily duties and will be moving into a bigger space with extra room for crafting soon. 

Today's card is one I made for my granddaughter, Alyah's 7th Birthday.  She is wild about horses these days (no pun intended, snicker, snicker!).  She also is a lover of purple and pink.  She was quite happy with her card and gift when it arrived in England.
The image I used is Gift Horse digi, by Whimsy Stamps.  Cardstock and DSP are from Stampin' UP! as well as the flower punch.  I colored this happy guy with koh-i-noor pencils and then blended them.  There is a touch of sparkle around the bridle and the saddle, but hard to see in this feeble example of photography.....

Wishing you all a bright, blessed day!  Thank you for stopping by!
