You Are Not Forgotten

I stopped in at my LSS after work Fri. looking for inspiration & was immediately & emotionally connected to this decorative paper.  I knew the photos I wanted use so went in search of them Sat.  I didn't find them, but found these & knew these were perfect to honor the veteran in my life who has passed away in addition to wall of our veterans!

To those who have lost a loved one, may God fill your heart with peace.

I miss you Randy.

Hostess Gift

I was invited to a party Sat. night & wanted to bring the Hostess a small gift.  The flowers are made from a printed burlap & another fabric but I'm not sure what it is.  It's very soft with lots of texture which pairs nicely with the rough, stiff burlap.  

The next photo shows the pretty sack I decorated to give them to her in.

Hello Gingham Garden

Growing up, our clothes were hand made by my Mom. Her loving hands created entire wardrobes for my brother & sisters & myself. Something I took for granted I now see the love she put into each garment. Her talent & craftsmanship I am so proud of today.

I also understand her love of fabric with its colors, patterns & textures. She had a large closet full of her purchases just waiting for her to find the opportunity, need or occasion.

These memories flooded in as I am posting this design. New paper to create with called Gingham Garden available June 1.

I miss you Mom.

Wildflower Meadow

It's sneak peak time at Stampin' Up!  I thought it would never come.

This is a Background stamp with a coordinating Embossing Folder!  I had never seen something like this before so I  was looking forward to creating with them.   I love the result!  I'm looking forward to trying new techniques to share with you.

What To Do?

With 3/4" or less left over strips of white card stock?  While I am working on a project I will use my left overs to stamp a verse or word with stamps and ink that I already have out and cut them with punches or framelits that I also have out. Then I store them in a little bag with others that I have done.  They are ready & waiting for my next creation!  Such a timesaver. 

A Rich Razzleberry Hello

Another favorite color combo today!
