Hello, Friends!!  I hope this post finds you all well!!  Our house has been very busy with Bible school for the last few weeks preparing all the crafts and actually working with the children doing the crafts.  Last week we had fun working with a variety of kids from our church and the community.  It was tiring but rewarding.  Yesterday, I began two online college courses to update my certification.  I am sure these courses will keep me on my toes and plenty busy.

Last week I had a friend from church ask me to create a birthday card for her mom who is turning 94.  It was fun to create this pop-up card.  I incorporated this card with the ODBDSLC275 
Pop it up or add dimension Shining the Light challenge (at ODBD).

Today's Verse:
When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.
Proverbs 11:2  

So many of us are prideful.  Pride is not only when we think the gifts and talents God has given us are our accomplishments but also in so many other areas of our lives.  Pride is thinking more highly of ourselves than we ought.  Is there someone you have not converse with because you think that you are better than they?  All we have is a gift of God.  What He has bestowed upon us, He can also take away.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Hello friends!! I hope you are all doing well!!

The summer is now here and soon both of my girls will be celebrating their birthdays!! I had so much fun using the new dies and stamps being released by Our Daily Bread Designs tomorrow to create a card and bookmark for my youngest daughter, Meghan.

I will share the bookmark now and the card tomorrow for the new release.

Our Daily Bread Designs, You Bless Me So, dies-Bookmark, Pierced Circles, Circles, Bitty Butterflies, Mini Stitched Hearts, designed by Chris Olsen

I used the new stamp set You Love Me So, the Alphabet die set, Bitty Butterflies dies, and the Mini Stitched Hearts dies as well as the previously released Pierced Circles dies, Circles dies and Bookmark dies

The flowers from the You Love Me So stamp set are so beautiful especially when colored.  I so enjoyed creating the background of the bookmark with them.  I colored them with copics.  The "M" is cut out with the Alphabet die set.

I hope you have enjoyed my creation...To see the remainder of the 3d card I created, please stop by my blog tomorrow.

Thank you so much for your visits and comments!!

Hello, Friends!! Happy Memorial Day!!  What a wonderful day in the USA to remember all those who gave their time and lives for the freedoms we all currently have in America.  Without their sacrifices, we would not have the freedoms we have today!!

I can't believe it has been so long since I last posted!!  Where has the time gone?  The last few weeks have been busy finishing up working with my students and with doctor appointments.  School is now over and summer has begun here in Virginia!!

Today I am popping in to share a couple of cards I created...one more feminine and the other more masculine.

The first one is a card I created for my husband using the Medallion Sentiments and Plough the Fields (for the image).  The sentiment is stamped and cut out with the Mini Tags dies.  The pine bough is created with the Pinecones dies and Lovely Leaves dies. The image is framed with a piece of black cardstock cut from the Pierced Ovals and Ovals dies.  The background is created with the Ephemera Essentials paper pad, the Pierced Rectangles and Rectangles dies.


The second card is more feminine and uses the Majestic Medallion die.  The Butterfly is created with the Fancy Fritillary die.  It is framed and layered on the Flourishy Frame Die.  The sentiment is from the Good Day stamp set and is cut out with the Pierced Rectangles and Filligree Frames dies.
I hope to be back tomorrow with a sneak peek!! In the meantime...I hope you all enjoy your holiday weekend in the USA!  Have a great day with family and friends.  Thanks so much for stopping by and for your comments.






blessings,
