Sending Lots of Love

Hello and welcome to the February Blog Hop! 
Don't forget we are doing things a bit different, you can go to Mary's Blog for all the current Info.

Simple flat card using the same stamps as the shaker below.
I used this simple shaker box from Serendipity Stamps, 
just open and fill! Its a bit large for the mail
but fine for hand delivered cards. It's filled with sequins from
Pretty Pink Posh. I just glued some twine/jute around the opening.

On a sad note we are saying good-by to Joyce of

 Of course we can still see her beautiful work on her blog. 

Happy note we have a new member to welcome:
 Birgit from Crafting While I Wait, excited to have Brigit be part of this group of wonderful 
and talented friends. This group is truly a blessing.

I had to have this Concord and 9th pineapple stamp and die set!

Lindsey already had this beautiful sentiment embossed and on this pretty die cut!

I used vellum for this shaker card, with Pretty Pink Posh sequins !

what the rest of the design team has created and the supply list.

I know I have been missing on the blog for a bit. My daughter with six children somehow broke most of the bones in her leg/ foot/ ankle. Waiting for the swelling to go down and then surgery to rebuild her leg. I am trying to be there for her as  much as I can. 
I think God wanted her to have a long rest! 

 I miss you all!

Masked Heart

Hi there and happy Monday to you! I spent MLK day at our two of our granddaughters soccer tournament today, 
as it was near by . We had a beautiful sunny day and I was very grateful!

Melissa shared in her Make It Monday video how to make a darling masked heart card. 
For some reason my computer wouldn't let me share her card but you can see it in the link above.

I am working with a new computer and for some reason when I edit my photos they look great then when I post them they change......... Hope to figure it out soon.
I may have stamped way too many large green leaves and not enough small blooms.

I created this card this morning and didn't have a chance to post until tonight! I used the Papertrey Ink Make It Market Kit: Don't Forget to Write stamps on this card , the die is the same one Melissa used ,Papertrey Ink - Limitless Layers: Heart Stitches Die and the sentiment is from Serendipity Stamps Love You Small. Thank you for the visit!

Playing Along With Papertrey Ink Make It Monday

Make It Monday #271: 2016 A La Carte

Make It Monday #245: Color Isolation

Hello! Hope you are enjoying your day! 
We are getting some much needed rain here in CA! 
I love the rain but often worry about those that are not safe and warm.

  Ashley's Card

I chose Ashley's Make It Monday technique to create with.

I didn't have the Papertrey Ink Noted Scalloped Vertical die so I used a frame die from Mama Elephant, that I already owned and turned it into a folded card by just moving up the top edge so it would cut on the fold.

I took the Best Wishes stamp, masked the lines and stamped the image over my card using Soft Stone ink , then adhered the top layer with foam tape.  I added Nuvo Drops then lightly sprinted some fine glitter on top.

God Bless You!

 I am also adding this to the

Prayers and Flowers

CAS(E) this Sketch #203
The Card Concept #64- Pretty Things 
Hi there and thank you for all your prayers , kind words and thoughts at the loss of a very dear friend!

I couldn't sleep so I made this card at 3am this morning.

I knew I wanted to use the Watercolored Anemones from Wplus9, this pretty patterned paper from My Mind's Eye,on trend 2 that was part of a Christmas gift and my brand new Poppystamps; Tailored Stitches #1788.  I lightly stamped my sentiment using Soft Stone from Papertrey Ink using the Prayer stamp from Simon Says Stamp.

I love these new Tailored Stitched Dies it's one long strip and this one comes with 3! I just placed it where I wanted and then again on the other side, so you can totally make your own design.
I love the flowers from Wplus9 when I showed my husband he thought I painted them :) I told him its all in the stamp.

I am also entering the two Simon Says Monday and Wednesday Challenge
