Hi, Friends!!  It has been a while since I have posted 2 days in a row!!  Our recent snowstorm last week, and being caged in the house for a few days, enabled me the opportunity to create some cards!!

Today I am popping in to share a card I created using the sketch for this month's ODBD Shining the Light challenge!!
Our Daily Bread Designs, Daisy,  With Much Thanks, Double Stitched Rectangle dies, Ovals dies, Stitched Ovals dies, Elegant Ovals dies, Pennant Dies, Flourished Star Pattern dies, Layered Lacey Squares dies, Pastel Paper Pack, designed by Chris Olsen

For my creation I used the Daisy image, colored it with copics, and cut it out with 2 different sizes of the elegant ovals dies to create a frame.  The sentiment is from the new release With Much Thanks and is cut out and framed with the Ovals and Stitched Ovals dies. The elegant ovals frame is mounted on dimensionals and framed with the Ovals and Stitched Ovals dies. Those ovals are mounted on squares and a border created with the Layered Lacey Squares dies.  The banner strip behind the squares are created with the Pennant dies and Pastel Paper Pack.  The background is embossed with Sizzix Dotted Squares embossing folder.  The border of the card is created with gold metallic paper and the Flourished Star Pattern die. The embossed white layer is cut from the Double Stitched Rectangles.

Hello friends!! It has been a while since I have posted so I thought it was time to take a break from all the busyness and try to create a couple smaller projects to share with you.

Our Etsy store has been picking up a bit with more and more sales or custom orders.  With each order, I create a card as a thank you to go with the items I ship.  Here is my latest creation incorporating the latest Shining the Light challenge at ODBD: Something New and Something Old.

Hello Friends!! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday.  I am praying that God will bless you all in the New year!!! It is hard to believe the holidays have come and gone as has 2016!!


“Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 3:13-14


Today I am popping in to share a card for the Shining the Light challenge which will no longer be every week but once a month.  This week's challenge is to use something new and something old for your card. My new item is the new release stamps and die: Wishing and the sentiment from Wishing Well.  The old is the cardinal ornament stamp set.

I just love cardinals!! They are so beautiful!  This year our birdfeeder is up so I will have the opportunity to see them out my window!!  I really did have a fun time coloring them up, adding sky, and adding white highlights to the female cardinal and pinecones.

We hope you are able to join the challenge!!  You have until January 31st to add you card or project to the linky here for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate toward stamps!  For more inspiration for this challenge please visit my dt sisters: Diana and Robin.

My first creation I would like to share with you uses the New Wishing Well image and sentiment, Wishing die, and Circles die as well as the previously released Stitched Ovals, Boho Background die , Double Stitched Circles and Beautiful Borders die.  While the Boho Background is a die cut, it was just embossed on this card.

My second creation is created using the New release: My Refuge and the previously released: Boho Background.



The My Refuge stamp set is not only beautiful for Bible Journaling or making a card, it is perfect for a bookmark as well.  The background of this card is embossed with a Darice Flourished Leaves die. The boho background is cut into a 1/3 from each edge and pieced behind the image/sentiment panel.
