Happy Thursday Everyone!! Well today my dear hubby went in to work for a few hours....boy has this flu ever whipped him. I have never seen him so sick and for so long. Thankfully he is showing some improvement...No fever after 10 days! My daughters are still struggling but I truly believe kids bounce back more quickly. My main worry has been my daughter Nicki's asthma since this is a respiratory virus. So far we have been blessed to keep her asthma under control with her many medications. Praise God!
Anywho....on to share some cards with you again today....I was so honored to have been asked to be a guest at Creative Belli Challenge this week. Each of the designers were given a sketch to use and for an added challenge, they had to include a clip.
Here is the sketch:
Here is my take on the sketch:
I had so much fun watercoloring "Say a Prayer" from Wags n Whiskers. I also created this card for the Stamp and Create Product focus Buttons, Brads and Bling this week over at the Stamp & Create blog. The DT is showcasing some of these gorgeous embellishments and of course, because they are the spotlight, they are reduced by 25% this week! Isn't that awesome!!
In addition to using the Basic Grey Buttons and Kaiser Craft Snow pearls, that are on sale this week, I used Basic Grey Sugar Rush, Basic Grey Bitter Sweet dp, lace and Say a Prayer image available at Stamp and Create as well!!
I just love pink and purple and it just reminds me so much of spring!! I just had to add the glitter to the wings. What is an angel with out some sparkle, right?
I hope you have a chance to create a card with the sketch and clip too for the Creative Belli Challenge !! Here is what you need to do...1. Anyone Can Play! Spread the Word! :)
2. Make a completed project/card with anything with a CLIP AND THE SKETCH... Grab something you have had lying around for ages! It could be ANY kind of CLIP! just Grab it and create!
3. Share the link here in the comments linking to Mr. Linky - CBC87. When you post to Splitcoaststampers or to your blog, be sure and put CBC87 as the KEYWORD and mention of the challenge - with a link!

I hope you enjoyed my take!! Thanks again Creative Belli for the opportunity to be a guest and work beside you talented ladies!!
I can hardly believe that in less than a week it is April. Where does the time go?!!! With a new month comes a new release at Our Daily Bread Designs!! These sets are perfect for Mother's day and Father's Day!!!
Today I would like to share a sneak peak using one of the stunning sentiments from the Our Daily Bread Designs set Mom to be available at ODBD on April 1. I incorporated the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge.
Psalm 51:7-10 "Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. Let me hear joy and gladness, let the bones you have crushed rejoice. Hide your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquity. Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me."
Make a clean and simple card/layout/project.
Here is my take on the challenge using my sneak peak:
What was most challenging about this card was not the clean and simple layout but the fact that I did it in the dark by candle light without electric a couple of days ago. I guess you would call me a die hard when it comes to stitching since I turned the wheel by hand on my sewing machine since we had no electric. Silly huh?
