Good Morning!! I hope everyone is enjoying their week. The weather has been rainy and humid here!! I am enjoying my time in the AC and peeking out at the outdoors just thankful not to be in the heat or the pouring rain. Good excuse to be stamping and creating, right? This week I have been trying to spend time with the girls inside and creating! How fun!! Sure can't complain!

Today I would like to share two cards I made using Our Daily Bread Designs new and upcoming release, Jesus, for Saturday, two days away!!! I just love all the verses in the beautiful fonts Kelley carries in all of her wonderful sets!

I love images but for this first card, I decided to show how easy and fun it is to create a card or project without an image.

For this card, I used several challenges from the Dare to be Dirty Challenges at SC including:

DTGD09genie1314- Tag Art

DTGD09Lauraly- Tie it on

DTGD09becca_stamps- Cut it Out

DTGD09bevmom- Sew Unexpected

DTGD09craftycaro- Anything but Average

I also incorporated the WT229 challenge for today to "Supply It" You were to use office supplies. I embossed a silver paper clip in gold, added three pearls (MS large pearls) and clipped it on.

I just love the Chelsea Windsor Roses from Prima that Kelley carries in her store! They are so elegant and gorgeous. I used a peach flower and paired it up with the K& Co. Que Sera dp also available at ODBD. Since I gold embossed the verse, I decided to put touches of gold embossing on the flower, add gold metallic paper die cut with the Spellbinders Flourish Accents, and sew with gold metallic thread. The flower is framed using the new Spellbinders die Fleur De Lis. The background part of the frame is turned and cut in half leaving a gap for the alternating frame to be turned up popped up through the middle. The bottom border is created using the Fleur De Lis punch from EK Success.

Card Recipe:

Stamps: Jesus- Our DAily Bread Designs

Paper: K&Co Que Sera, Groovy Guava and White

Accessories: Ek Success Fleur De Lis Punch, Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Punch, Spellbinders Flourish Accent, gold cording, Groovy Guava Ribbon, Paper Clip, Gold Embossing Powder, Martha Stewart Large Pearls

Oh Boy...I have five minutes before having to leave to take my daughter for Piano lessons. Why did I schedule them so early?!!!! It takes a half hour to get there. Yikes!

Well here is my second card for yesterday's SC239 sketch at SC. It also uses the ODBD Jesus set. I incorporated the following Dare To Be Dirty challenges as well:

Hi Chris, thank you so much for joining my blog and leaving such lovely comments. I love your cards, especially the one with the rose it is so beautiful! You asked about the die on my wedding card, I'm afraid I don't have a cuttlebug or similar so I have drawn and cut the shape myself. hugs Jane x
