Owl be praying...


This is a busy week for me, but I've got time to show you a card.  Right now I could use several of this card to send to friends!  Life is full of burdens, but I'm so thankful that we can turn to the Lord and know that He hears and answers prayer!!


This came together pretty quickly so I would be able to make several to send out.  I printed the colored image and sentiment then cut them out with Spellbinders Labels Three.  The flourishes are cut with Spellbinders Doodle Parts.  My last bit of this AC ribbon and a Prima flower finished it off.   My image is from Doodle Pantry's What A Hoot.  Such a cute set! 

Challenges...
Word Art Wednesday #155 - anything goes w/ provided Scripture or encouraging or uplifting sentiment
{PIN}spirational Challenge #126 - photo inspiration (I went with the colors...red, orange, brown)

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

Anne with an "E"


If you are an Anne of Green Gables fan, you understood my title immediately.  I cannot tell you how many times I read the Anne books.  I love them!!  I have almost all of L.M. Montgomery's books.  I was such a fan of the books that when the movie came out in the early 80's, I HATED it because it was not enough like the books.  I did learn to love watching the movies, but it took me awhile to get over all the "wrong" things in them. The book is always better, don't you think?

My Anne card has been awhile in the making.  Life has been so busy that I've not had a lot of time to make just for fun, but I did with this one.  I've wanted this "Anne of Green Gables" stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie for looooong time and finally just ordered it a couple of months ago.  I printed the image and it sat.  I colored it and it sat, and finally just finished it.  I'm going to make a few more cards with this image for my sisters, my niece, and a few friends.  Last month, we all went to see "Anne of Green Gables The Musical" in Charlottetown.  It was so awesome!!  I had seen it when I was a girl, and other than some new staging and props, it's just the same as it was then.  That's really neat since this year is the 50th year of this musical!!   (It was NOT 50 yrs ago that I saw it!!!!)

Enough chatter, here's the card...


Challenges...
Kraftin' Kimmie Wonderful Wednesday - anything goes (my image is KK!!)
Pile It On #41 - Use 2 or more dies (2 sizes of A2 Matting Basics A)

Serenity Prayer - TMS #271


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

This is the second Tuesday of the month, so it's time for our Judged Challenge with a Twist!! 
It is Holiday Fun!!  
**Red face**  I really didn't do the twist.  Though Melissa is so kind!  On our TMS post, she said I did the "I'm feeling spiritual" holiday! :)

So, here is my non-holiday card...


I love this saying!  But did you realize that this is only a small portion of it?  It's wonderful...

Serenity Prayer

God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
the Courage to change the things I can,
and the Wisdom to know the difference; 

 
Living one day at a time;
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace;
Taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is,
not as I would have it:

 
Trusting that you will make all things right
if I surrender to your will;
that I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with you forever in the next.


Here is our awesome sketch for this week...



Our sponsor is DRS Designs.  My sentiment is Serenity Prayer Greeting.

Let us be thankful


Today, Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the challenge at Creative Knockouts.  The theme of this challenge is "thankful" so I have 3 cute little birdies that are being thankful.


I used the colored birdies, digi paper, and sentiment from Autumn Song Birdies.  They are so cute! I printed the digi paper, and free handed the top for some interest.  The image is cut with Spellbinders Labels Eight.  The corners are cut with a Fiskars corner punch.  A scrap of ribbon and some adhesive pearls finished it off.

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

Thank you card - TMS #270


Happy Tuesday to you!!  It is time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

I don't really have much time for chit chat today -and I can't seem to think of anything witty or intelligent to share with you- so straight to my card...


Isn't this a sweet image?  It is called "All Wrapped Up" from All Dressed Up Stamps, our sponsor for this week. 


I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir markers and cut it out with Spellbinders Petite Ovals and Scalloped Petite Ovals.  The DP is MME Lost and Found Two "Rosy."  The sentiment is Inkadinkado, the swirl is Spellbinders Doodle Parts, and the flowers are Flora Doodles.

Happy Tuesday!  Yay!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!! :)

I don't have a card for you today.  *stunned silence*   But I do have a tag to show you. ;)  This was fun to make.  My image and sentiment seemed more suited to a project other than a card.  See?


 It's a tag on a bag with a banana crumb muffin!  Yummy!  (Click on the name to find the recipe.  They are amazing!!!!!)


My image and sentiment are Baked With Love from Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps our sponsor for this week!!
