In God we trust!



SSCB#35 - Summer's Last Hurrah!!
The design team was asked to use a personal photo as inspiration.
You just need to use a Serendipity Stamp or die on your project! Hope you will join us, you could win 20$ off your order. 

When you see this barn you know you are getting close to Yosemite!
I took it with my iPhone and of course the driver wouldn’t stop!

Tuolumne Meadows, Yosemite National Park

This is a photo I took while on vacation in Yosemite, earlier this summer. When I see this, I see the hand of God.
God has blessed this country with so much beauty! This photo inspired me to use this Flag stamp and saying :


We went to Yosemite with our three girls and their families, our son Richard couldn’t make it. The picture was taken on a day my husband and I decided to go for a drive and a few hikes. So glad we did because it was heavenly!
The sale this time is free shipping on any U.S. order over 15$ still the best shipping deal in town!

I stamped the flag three times:
Once on the card stock 
Once on patterned paper fussy cut the star square
Then I stamped it on watercolor paper using Tim Holtz Ranger distressed inks ...I used a wet brush to spread the ink in the red lines, then fussy cut that part of the flag.

 Cant wait to see what the rest of the talented DT made, you can check them out here:

A Special Birthday Wish

edited to add one more photo

 With the help of Ardyth ( link)  and Darnell (hosting) we are celebrating a very sweet blog friend: Bev from Happy Dance. Bev is a very kind, supportive and talented crafty friend!  Bev lives in , Wisconsin,  my parents were born and raised there. Almost every summer we would go visit, grandparents etc.  Maybe that is why I feel a family conniption..lol connection! to Bev. I love my mistakes and if you knew my family!

Happy Birthday Bev!


Hey, Bev I know these look familiar, they were so beautiful when you used them for me...  I had to use them again for you!


This photo is called DANCE with me! ( from twitter)



I  know how much Bev loves seeing a fox in her own back yard and she didn’t have a camera the last time she saw one.  I thought I would add these pictures and make her a card with a fox. Of course my fox is no where near as cute as these guys. 
You can read about her fox sighting Here


May God Bless you on your birthday and everyday!

Some exciting news to share!

Festive Friday Challenge #40 (September 12-24)
I fell in love with this inspiration photo!



Adding this to the Fusion challenge since its shinny and pink!

  
Good morning or what ever time of day or night it might be by you! 

I am using one of my favorite stamps from Serendipity Stamps again. Now that I have done Two (here) Christmas cards using this fall wreath, you know I will be using it again for FALL :) I love using my watercolors after its heat embossed. 
I had a very difficult time photographing this one so you can see the shimmer. I also added some Perfect Pearls on top to tone down the pink and gold paint. 

Hope you have a great week!
It’s going to be 104 again today! 
Very hot!

I am going to call this my: BUTMS... Been Used Too Much Stamp! Like Darnell’s NBUS

Don’t Be Afraid!


Too cute to Spook - Make a project featuring Halloween cuteness 
 I painted all these little tags with my watercolors , then added Glossy Accents to them. Two of the tags use both tag dies and one tag is single. I like the double tag with two colors.

I was very fortunate to win a big gift certificate to Waltzingmouse Stamps a few weeks ago. Thank You!




For this challenge we were asked to make some treats. I didn't have any candy in the house : because I eat it! So my DH said why don’t your fill it up with the popcorn you made: I said to him because you ate it all! 
Its 104 degrees here today... so lots of eating and watching football, my kind of day! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Welcome to tag # 6 by Karin, look at her beautiful butterfly!

NBUS Challenge #2! Here We Go!
This will be my 
second card for Darnell’s challenge.




I used my new Persian Motifs from AltENew , I bought this stamp set when it first came out because
 I knew it would sell out, it did!
 I heat embossed with a pearl white then watercolored using only green. I love an all green hydrangea ,
 so I tried to pain it like one.

This is the first time I have had a chance to use this stamp. I brought it with me when I went Joyce’s home, both  Joyce and  Kim used it right away, and I loved what they made. That was such a fun day. Thank you again !


Take care!

For both of my cards I heat embossed with pearl white embossing powder, and then watercolored them in. On my little berries I added Glossy Accents and then glitter! I  love how those turned out so I made up a bunch of them to have on hand.

Make It Monday & Some Baby Booties




I loved Laura’s tip about putting the dash for the j in the right place. You will have to watch the video to see what she did.


This is what my stencil looked like as I added versa mark . I taped the center down with tape


A few photos of  baby booties I have made and not posted yet. 



 Non stamping related .
Last few days have been very busy!  One of my daughters dog sprained his shoulder. It’s a Labradoodle , large dog. She took it to the vet and the vest gave her some pain medicine. All six kids did everything they could do to make Duke comfortable held his food  and water up to him so he would not have to bend down. A few days later he was getting sick, she took him back to the vet a blood test reviled he had kidney failure!!! Its a very rare side affect! They kept him at the vet and he was given IV fluids for days, then sent home.  Her husband ( fireman ) back to work for 3 days... 

Something told me to go down for a visit and see how everyone was . This has been very hard on the family . He had not moved or eaten anything I told her it was time.... Oh that was hard to do. The vet agreed. They offered to pay for most of the cost . HMMMM! Then the kids came home from school. Oh boy that was hard, I tried to get the kids to think of their other dog and how much he was going to miss his best buddy and that they would need to be there for him.  ( because he doesn’t understand  like they do) That seemed to take the attention away from themselves and back to their other dog. 

I wish you could have all seen the way my granddaughter with down syndrome handled it.... it was priceless .... the short of it is the way she went up to her older sister (Emma) and kissed her and said how sorry she was that Emma was sad ... but that Duke was up in heaven and very happy it was just that simple to her. She was concerned for everyone else. That’s my Delaney!
   
Back to stamping All products I used were from Papertrey Ink.

 Thanks for stopping by. 
Prayers for our country tomorrow!
