Birthday Greetings With Leaves

I hope your doing well.  Has spring really taken off where you are.  And I guess the other side of the world is experiencing winter.  I am so glad we are done with the cold weather for now.  Even though the allergies have been very high here.
I have a card to share with you that I made using some fun products.  Here is a pic.

I used a base of navy blue cardstock, then used a Fern Leaf stamp, green gelatos, and irRESISTible Texture Spray in Dandelion to create my background.  I loved the strong vibrant green and yellow that I got when this was done.  I then added DP, twine and a digital sentiment.

I will be entering the following challenges and the links are below: Stamplorations, Sister Act, and Artistic Inspirations.

Thanks for stopping by and God bless you.

Star Coffee Tag

I hope your doing well.  Tonight I have a lovely tag to share with you.  At the current Tag Your It Challenge we were asked to take inspiration from Erin's tag, so that is what I did.  I was inspired by the green, coffee theme and coffee die cut sentiment.  Here is my tag.

I used a citrus DP collection, yellow cardstock, Top Dog Dies coffee cup die, Verve coffee sentiment die, and some clear stars and green twine.

I am posting a reminder that I DO NOT allow my creations on Facebook, Twitter, or any other forum fr social media site with out my consent.  I do allow my creations on Pinterest as long as they are pinned straight from my blog to Pinterest.

Open Bible

It is a lovely spring day here.  And although the allergens are high today the sun is shining and the trees and flowers are all blooming and it such a sight for those winter sore eyes.

Today I am sharing a lovely card with you.  I used the Open Bible stamp from Blue Ridge Impressions which is on page 10 in the catalog.  And the Scripture Stamp The Lord Shall Guide which is Isaiah 58:11.  "And the Lord Shall Guide thee continually."  Here is a pic of my card.

I loved using the "Open Bible" stamp.  I used the Spectrum Noir Colored Pencils and Mineral Spirits to color the image.  Those roses are just beautiful on the stamped image.  I used the Primary Colors for my image.  Here is what that collection looks like.

 By the way, Blue Ridge Impressions has them available too on page 81 of their catalog.  If your looking for them make sure to pick them up.  They are awesome!!!
For my card I used a base of orange cardstock and then a lovely piece of turquoise DP.  I then mounted the image onto that.  The scripture was mounted to the Open Bible image.  Added some ice blue sequins and twine.

I will be linking up to the following Challenges and the links are below: Simon Says Wednesday Challenge, Artistic Impressions and Sister Act.

I am so glad you stopped by and hope you have a lovely day.

Red Rose

I can't believe how fast the month of April has flown by.

I have a lovely card to share with you.  Here is a pic.

I used a base of red cardstock, some sweet DP, and lovely lace on the side.  The Red Rose Image is from A Day For Daisies, and I colored it using Distress Inks.  Then added the red sequins.

Tea Set

Happy Spring.  I hope your having a lovely day.  It is a little on the cool side today but the sun is shining here today, so it really brightens your spirit. :)

Today I am sharing a card that I made using a beautiful Tea Set stamp from Blue Ridge Impressions.  Here is my card.

I used the Tea Set stamp which is available at Blue Ridge Impressions.  Their link is in the side bar of my blog, and the stamp is on page 27 in the catalog.  This stamp is so pretty.  I watercolored the image.  Then mounted it onto some Iridescent Pearl Paper in Deep Blue (which is on page 94 in the catalog), and a piece of Denim paper in Stonewashed (which is on page 94 also)  both papers are lovey.  Then mounted the layered watercolored image to the Design Paper.   I added a shabby blue bow, button charm and a sweet rosette.  In my card design I created a thumb notch and added a tea bag.

I am so glad you stopped by, and hope you take a look at Blue Ridge Impressions catalog they have the most beautiful stamps and large selection of craft supplies for those creations your working on.

Greeting Cards for Joshuah

I hope your doing well.  I have had a hard time adjusting to the variety of weather we have had here, and all the spring allergens don't help.

Today's post is about a little boy named Joshuah who 5 years old and fighting cancer.  He is asking for some cards to brighten his day.

You can find the information about his fight with cancer and the address to send a card too at this link,  which is HERE.   I know I will be sending one, and hope it is a small ray of sunshine in his day when he receives it.  I hope you will too.

Have a great day,
