Still Time For Tag You’re It!

Good Saturday Morning to you! 
I have been wanting to make a tag for weeks now. My dear friend Jeanne has the inspiration tag up and the time is running out. I woke up early this morning and found the time. Yay!
 Jeanne didn’t add a bow to her tag but I made a Jeanne bow anyway.

As you can see I did not follow the colors, I did try to combine some pattern papers and follow the design like Jeanne. You know, the way Jeanne layers is not easy It’s a gift ! I tried to add a feather but I just couldn’t get it to work. I don’t have that gift :)
You have a bit of time left to play along, winner gets to be Guest Designer. 
Have a wonderful week!

Every Act Of Love

Hello, and thank you for stopping by. This time I was asked to use a verse as the focal point of my card. Hope you can play along for a chance to win a 20$ gift certificate to the store. 

Under the very top layer of my card, I added a die cut piece of  “fun foam” to raise it up. Or you can just use foam tape. All I did for color was blend three different shades of ink, going from dark to light with a sponge. Easy to do and who needs colored paper :)

I love any quote from Mother Teresa and I really love the font of this one. I used my favorite simple solid butterfly , fussy cut it out and added a bit of clear Wink of Stella . God Bless!

Welcome to the  WMS Pajama party! Jeanne Jachna and  Cathy had a big hand it getting this party ready. Thanks girls!

When I made my cards I knew exactly what went where, when I came to post, I was a bit askew, think I have it straight now.

Challenge No.1 - Shower with Gifts 

Challenge No.2 - Gift Card It

To make my umbrella I used an old memory box die then used it again to cut out the circle from Pretty Circles Die set and added it to the top. Very versatile die!

This is the inside of my gift card.

Challenge No. 4 - Bedtime Story Sketch

Keeping it short as I have a few post today and you have lots to see. Thanks for stopping by!

Hopping With A Puzzle & Shaker

Hello and welcome to the April Serendipity Stamps  Blog Hop.
I am excited to share my shaker card and anther Puzzle! I have made so many and the kids take them home as fast as I make them. 

I love the way this one turned out. I used Memento felt pens on my stamp then spritzed a bit  of water on the stamp to soften the image. I also used the negative of the Stitched Duo 3 from PPP sold at Serendipity Stamps, for my window.

This puzzle is so fun and easy to make. I place the dies on the fun foam, cut it, then glue stamped card stock images over the cut out foam pieces.  I adhere with glue, a piece of card stock to the back of the foam and that's it!  Its fun for the kids because the pieces push in so nicely. Makes for a great card too. Just send it in one of the clear B59-A9 Envelope from Serendipity Stamps .

You should have arrived from the very kind and talented Karen Amidon’s blog. 
We will have a sale: Buy 3, Get a 4th Free.  Good Friday through Sunday  4/10 – 4/12. 
For a chance to win 20$ gift certificate just leave a comment on each of the design teams blogs.  A random winner will be announced April 13 on Mary’s Blog  We still have 50% off on Jar Label Stamp.

Christmas Angels And A Birthday

Hello again! I have two cards today, one for Merry Monday and one for CAS.ology.

I loved this sweet image  Lori chose with this adorable angel.
It was kinda cloudy out so my pictures are not that great sorry.

I added some Glossy Accents and chancy glitter to these sweet angles.

Congratulations to Gillian and her husband on their new baby boy!
I think of this banner as a bit like news.

This cupcake card was inspired by:Laurie’s card. I guess it stuck in my mind. I broke down and bought this set, it just makes me happy to stamp with them. I can’t explain it. 

You remember me asking for prayers for my brother in law Phil (Here)who had a major heart attack on Dec. 31 . Well, he is going back to work tomorrow. The Doctors are still amazed he is alive after being gone for more than 10 minutes and with complete blockage. I just wanted to update you. 

 We have rain!!!! Yay! It’s Raining!!!!!! 
God Bless!

Welcome to another Serendipity Stamps Challenge. You can check out the details HERE  on how you can win a 20$ gift card to the store.
 For this challenge I was asked to make a monogram out of a word die or stamp. I made one of each. 

You will not believe this but I cannot remember what word I masked the M from. I made this card a few weeks ago. I am sure I put the stamp aside but because of Easter I cleaned my entire craft room and put everything away.  I know it will come to me soon or maybe one of the DT members will know. Sorry! It’s a beautiful M don’t you think! Bet you would like to know where its from
The flower and leaves are from Summer Flower Pops Cling Set , background:
Beaded Strings Background.

Found it! 
Music Washes

I used the: Magnolia stamp leftover from my March Kit HERE The “M” is from the: My Die

Mary is doing something new: she will have a stamp of the month and that stamp will be 50% the entire month.

Jar Label
Stamp of the month for April!

Song Of The South?

This adorable photo is from Kelly! 
Thank you so much Kelly!

Hello, welcome to the 12 Kits of Occasion for March. It’s my turn to host. 
The theme is : Song Of The South ( farm, country and good old hospitality) 
You can get all the info over at the The 12 Kits Blog Keeping it short here because I have lots of cards to share.

We have an original 12 Kits member joining us the month : Renee!

I had fun adding the washi tape to this card.

I let the rooster take center stage on this card.

I fussy cut then sanded all the aprons I sent out. I love the simplicity of this one.

The card above is heat embossed . When I think of the south I think of Magnolias

As you can see I kept them all clean and simple, and they really were simple. I have to admit I kinda like the way they all turned out. I even have a few more but thought eight was enough to share.

Please check out the The 12 Kits Blog and see what the other designers made . We have a give away for May, but you have to stop by the The 12 Kits Blog!

May you have a blessed day!
