May God bless you - C4G #215

 Another year has come and almost gone!  2023 was full of joy (my son got married to a wonderful young lady!) and a year full of sorrow (many suffering physically and many lost loved one), but I'm thankful for God's presence and peace through both.  

It's time for our challenge at Cardz 4 Galz.  Our theme is a DL or slimline card with flowers.  (A DL card means the width is half of the length/height. Mine is 3.5" wide and 7" tall.) 

My card is for the daughter of a dear friend who passed away recently.  


 The paper was in a box of paper that I had not opened since we moved in 2020.  I don't know who made it.  My sentiment is a rubber stamp from Stampendous called "Blessing."  It's cut out with CottageCutz Stitched Rectangles.   (I had to cut the top portion and move the die and finish it.  (That's a great way to get cuts for shapes/sizes you don't exactly have.)  The flowers are The Ton Peony Memories Cardmaking and stamped with Catherine Pooler inks.  

We'd love to have you come play along at Cardz 4 Galz!! 

Have a blessed day and a very Happy New Year!

Our first Christmas as Mr. & Mrs. - TMS #737

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  Except there's no sketch.  This is our Annual Anything Goes Challenge!  This challenge will last for 2 weeks (until Dec 31) and we want to see any type of craft project that you have created.  

My son got married is August, so I made an ornament for he and his wife...

I started with a blank wooden ornament and inked the edges.  I cut the saying on my Cricut (using Design Space) in black matte vinyl.  I used some organza ribbon from my stash for the bow and it was all done.  I gave it to them on Sunday, so they can use it on their tree this year.  

No sketch to share. :)  Please play along and share your crafty creations!! 

And I wish you all a very Merry and Blessed Christmas!! 

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to go check out the creations from the TMS DT...

Noel - C4G #214

It's time for our challenge at Cardz 4 Galz!  This time our theme is "Christmas Card" so easy for this time of year! 

I do have to confess that though December is almost half over, I have yet to send a Christmas card.  I'd better get busy! 

Here's one that is mail-friendly... 


My paper strips are Crate Paper Snow & Cocoa. (The strips are all odds and ends left after using the main portion of the page.)  The Noel is Xcut Noel Mini Die.  The large snowflakes are a Martha Stewart punch.  The tiny snowflakes are from the center of the "O" in the sentiment. 

Please come play along at Cardz 4 Galz!  

And have yourself a very Merry and Blessed Christmas!!

'Tis the season to shine - TMS #736

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


My ornaments and sentiment are Raisin Boat Holiday Hang Ups, stamped with VersaMark, and heat embossed with Martha Stewart embossing powder.  After cutting the panel out with Stitched Scalloped Rectangles, I sprayed it with Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz.   

Here's our sketch...  which I flipped upside down so my elements are hanging rather than standing. 


Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to go check out the creations from the TMS DT...

Sending holiday wishes - SCC #155

It's the month of Christmas!!!   24 days! :)   

It's time for our challenge at Sparkles Christmas Challenge!  Our theme is "animals or birds."  I've got a cute little deer for you...


My image is a colored digi from my stash.  I have multiples of this image printed, but cannot remember where it came from.  (My old laptop that had all my digis died last year!)   My snow globe is Darice Snow Globe.  I used Ranger Ultra Thick embossing powder to give the look of glass. My paper is Echo Park Christmas. 

Here's a closeup... probably should have done one more layer of VersaMark and embossing powder, but it is very pretty IRL.


Be sure to come and play along at Sparkles Christmas Challenge!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed day!!
