I am also planning to have devotionals again in the near future. (Probably in a couple of months or so). I have learned so much Biblical information and can't wait to share it with you!
I am also having to downsize to another place to live, the house I am living in has been sold and will have 5 weeks to move out! So much to do! Sell loads of furniture, possibly if the weather will bless me, maybe I can have a garage sale as well. Then of course all the packing and moving itself is a pain - and anyone who has ever moved knows what I am talking about!
Well today I have cards to share with you ... (imagine that!) And I hope they will inspire you and give you incentives to make a few cards yourselves!
This card I made for a fabulous and lovely lady that had to have surgery last week. She had 4 arteries blocked and had to have stints put into them. But happily I can say, she is doing much better! The DP believe it or not came from OTC, and I just love that bundle of dp they have in this set! The middle white page was embossed, added a die cut label and butterfly. Also a pink ribbon and bow and white pearls.
Isn't this different? I just love it! The dp is yellow and blue wooden image, on it, I stamped the red bud tree branch and added little 'forget me nots' flowers. Inside each I place a blue diamond gem in each one to give it that special sparkle! Added ribbon and a bow. The sentiment is one of my favorites and it is from Stampabilities.
Isn't this one gorgeous??? I just love the way it turned out. It happened to be a color challenge from SCS. I started off with Kraft paper, added burgundy CS, the beautiful ivory die cut was given to me by a very special friend, Marilyn who lives in Canada! I then placed a die cut oval onto it. Paper punched my flower and bent them up, topped with a crochet flower (another talented lady by the name of Melody sells these). Then the grand topping is a gold button placed in the center. I absolutely love this and hope you do too!
This card called for a lighthouse. Well believe it or not, I did not have a lighthouse stamp or digi of any kind. So went looking online and found this one. I printed it off in brown ink, and then colored it with color pencils and chalk. My clouds are made with a technique where you used a scallop circle and blue chalk, I then colored the rest in pencils and printed off the Bible verse to go with it.
Now for my last one. I had so much fun with this one. I tell you why - I got this stamping set at a second hand store! The set is an old Stampin' Up set. I used ivory CS, placed checkered and then topped with another marbled ivory dp. On it I stamped the flowers in orange and blue, the middle was another stamp by Stampin' up a dot which I stamped in yellow. I drew the stems and leaves, and then stamped this wonderful sentiment, by Louisa May Alcott.
I hope you all enjoyed these - I love hearing your comments - please write me with your thoughts and ideas. May God bless you! Jan
