You're Number One

I was asked by my church to make gift cards that would be attached to small bouquets of flowers to be given by our little kids to members who were 80 years old or older.  I had this adorable set called Postage Collection that I wanted to use.  I made the former for the men and the latter for the women.  Pastor, and rightfully so, asked for just one design as it would be too much for the little kids to handle so I went with the purple and gold (known for royalty) and changed the image to a vintage hot air balloon.  I forgot to get a photo, though.

For Me A Blessing

I recently reconnected with a lifelong friend.  She really lifted my spirits.  We shared and talked and talked.  It was a very blessed day.  

When choosing stamps today to create with, I found "Trust God" and knew I wanted to use it.   I started with a MOJO Monday sketch, then I went through my scraps of DSP.  I chose Sycamore Street.   My stash seemed to have the right sizes I needed for a 4-1/4 x 4-1/4 card.


You're The Best

I fell in love with a card by Lisa Martz and wanted to recreate it!  I made a few changes & voila!  Colors are Always Artichokw, Tangerine Tango, Very Vanilla and Early Espresso.  

Thanks for dropping by.

With Deepest Sympathy

I wanted a special card for a friend who recently lost her mom.  When designing cards or scrapbook pages, I like to use clusters.  Here I have the bow, heart and flower.  I couldn't resist adding the 3 little green flowers with a teeny tiny pearl in the middle.

Don't forget to stamp your envelope.

Happy paper crafting!

I I have 2 projects left to share that were for my class last month using Everything Eleanor.  Here's one of them.

DSP is Print Poetry.  Stampin' Up! offers
4-1/2" x 6-1/2" pads of DSP perfect for cards.  The current Season of Style is $6.95 with 48 sheets 24 each of 2 double-sided designs.

The card base is Strawberry Slush & I also used a little Crumb Cake strip embossed using Delicate Designs.  

The Hello stamp is from Posy Punch, one of my faves.

Thanks for dropping in!

Something Pretty

It's been a difficult few months but I'm still here.  The project I have today was inspired by one on Pinterest.  I have not been able to find the person to  give credit to.  My apologies.

As usual, the colors spoke to me, Island Indigo,  Summer Starfruit, Whisper White and Crumb Cake.

I really like the Delicate Lace tape.  The name says it all.

Thanks for stopping by.
