Hi Friends!! I am so excited to have been invited to be part of the DIRTY Girls at Splitcoaststampers!!  I still can’t believe that I am going to join such an amazing and talented group of women who I have looked up to and admired for such a long time and am completely honored and humbled.  I am so thankful to God for this opportunity...when there are so many more stampers more talented than I!!  I am so thankful for my many crafty and blogging friends who always inspire me!!

This month I have been working on lots of cards/projects which you can see if you are a part of the fan club here.

Too kick off the weekend before I go back to spending all my time in the basement painting wood crafts for a craft show next weekend, I thought I would share one of this week's cards:

I created my panels with a marvelous squares die from Spellbinders. My snowflake from the ODBD Sparkling Snowflake was embossed in pearl and sponged with Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, and Coastal Cabana starting at the edges from darkest to lightest. I did this three times (front and back of folded pop up panel and back snowflake).  The snowflake was cut out with the Custom Snowflake die.  The paper is Bo Bunny Snowflake Collection
The sentiment is from ODBD Vintage Pattern Ornaments.  The back panel is embossed in Anna Griffin Poppies.

My next card is a masculine card I created using The Earth set from Our Daily Bread Designs.  It is die cut with ODBD Custom Circle Ornament dies.  The sentiment is cut and framed with the ODBD Custom Recipe and Tags die.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you were inspired in some way by my creation.  Have a blessed day!!!


I am entering this into the Word Art Wednesday challenge which is Anything Goes.  Word art Wednesday shares free inspirational scripture and sentiments each week!!
