Thank You #2

I am back to share one last project this week :)
This is the Thank You card that I made
for the Producer of the Easter Play at our church.
She did such an amazing job and I know
how many long, hard hours she devoted to ensure
this production was a success,
So once again, I used a simple design,
using elements from My Favorite Things
Blueprints 23 Dies.  The scalloped piece was cut
from the Homespun Gingham Paper Pack,
I inked up the edges with my Prima Chalk Inks.
Next I watercolored some cardstock using
and then die cut the flowers from the
I then cut the Scribble Roses Overlay
from white glitter cardstock.
The Thank You Sentiment is from the

I did not take a pic of the inside, but
I stamped this sentiment on the inside
it is from the Cheerful Blessings stamp set.

Thanks for visiting my blog :)

Our Savior Lives

I have another Easter project to share today :)
I decided to make some bookmarks
for some of my friends at church.
I just purchased this wonderful stamp
and die set from Papertrey Ink.
and it is only $5.00!!  The matching Savior Die is only $4.00
I used precut bookmarks that I bought at Joann's
I inked them up with some Kelly's Fashion Inks
I purchased from Hero Arts.  I stamped the
sentiment in the same ink and then added
some clear embossing powder and heat embossed the sentiment. 
For the sun and the clouds, I once again returned to
My Favorite Things!    The sun is the Sunny Skies Die-Namics
and the Puffy Clouds Die-Namics for the clouds.

All the ladies loved these :)

Thanks again for stopping by :)

Easter Tags

Hello and Happy Tuesday!!
Today I am sharing the tags I made
for my grandkids Easter Baskets,
My grandbabies are getting older,
So this year instead of buying all those
little basket stuffer toys, I decided to get
them Target Gift cards!!  I made tags with pockets
to hold the gift cards and added the tags to
some sweet little felt baskets I found in the dollar bin
at Target!!  I filled the baskets with candy, of course!!
Just like on my Easter Treats for my coworkers,
I used the the cute little chickies are from Pretty Pink Posh.
I used the new Tim Holtz Distress Crayons to color them in. 
The grass is cut with My Favorite Things Grassy Hills Die-namics
The tags were cut from the My Favorite Things
The pattern paper is from Doodlebug
I used Jaded Blossoms Mini Tag Dies

Hello Chickie stamp set.

Thank You #1

Hello and Happy Monday!!
I have had a very busy crafty weekend!!
I will be sharing a few projects 
over the next few days.

First up is a Thank You card I made for the
director of our Church Easter Play,
My husband played a Pharisee in the play
and the director and producer worked alot
of long hours to ensure the play was a success!!
This card is very clean and simple.
I sued several products from My Favorite Things.
Love the Sweet Succulents Stamps and dies.
The succulents they used on the stage were
from the director's house, and I knew 
this set would make the perfect card!
to cut out my window.  Then covered the inside
with a piece cut from Calm & Cozy Chevron Paper Pack.
The sentiment is from the Whimsical Greetings stamp set

I colored in my succulent with my Spectrum Noir Markers.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

PDE Linky Party 03-11-16

Hello and Happy Friday!
It is time for a new PDE Linky Party and
as always the Theme is ANYTHING GOES!!
Today I am sharing a card and picture frame 
for one of my friends.  Back in December she adopted
a new dog.  We are both dog lovers and her 2 dogs had
passed away within the last 2 years.  She desperately wanted another
dog, but her husband said he didn't want another dog.
She is a lover of Pugs, so when she had the opportunity
to adopt a sweet little girl pug, she jumped at the chance
hoping her husband would not make her take her back!!
All things ended well and she got her new pug Chloe!!
For her birthday, I made her this sweet set!!
Here is a pic of the inside, I used My Favorite Things
Here is the frame I made for her.  
I used the Pug Dog Puppy file
from SVG Cutting Files.
Her is a close up of the cute little Pug!!
She absolutely loved both the card and frame.
It sits proudly on her desk!!

We can't wait to see your projects
and remember it is ANYTHING GOES,
so any handmade item is eligible!!

There is Sunshine

Hello and Happy Friday!!

I wanted to make a card for a friend
that recently lost her sister to suicide.
I did not want it to be a sympathy card, I just wanted
to cheer her up and let her know I am thinking
and praying for her and her family.
I used lots of My Favorite Things products on this card!!
I embossed the tag using a Darice Cloud folder and
then I went over the clouds with the 
brand new Tim Holtz Distress Crayons!
I used Picket Fence on the clouds and Vintage Photo 
on the edges.  The tag, base and sentiment piece are 
all from MFT Blueprints 13 
and the plaid paper is from the County Fair pack.
 The sentiment is from Cheerful Blessings
This sun is the Sunny Skies Die-namics
I inked it with Tim Holtz Distress markers
and then covered it with Wink of Stella. 
For the inside I used a scripture stamp
from Stampendous called Hope Verses.

It has been a long time since I have
entered any challenges!!
I am entering this in the MFT Sketch Challenge
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend :)
