Happy Thanksgiving to all in the USA!!  With all our trials and hardships, we all have so much to be thankful for!! Although our family is currently mourning the loss of a loved one, I thank God for the hope we have in Him and for the numerous blessings he bestows upon me each and every day to numerous to even name them all.

On this Thanksgiving day, I do want to thank God especially for sending His one and only son, for His presence in my life each and every day during all my joys and sorrows, for my dear husband Scott, for my darling girls: Nicki and Meghan, for my parents (both Scott's and mine), for brothers and sisters, for our new home in Virginia, for my friends (new and old)...

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!!

Happy Tuesday Friends!!  I hope you all are doing well!!

Our Daily Bread Designs, Chris Olsen, Holiday Ornaments 1, Poinsettia Wreath

With each passing day it is getting colder and looking more like winter.  I love each and everyone of the seasons although the cold is my least favorite.  I do love winter for the beauty of the snow or the coziness of looking out at the blustery day with a blanket or a blazing fire in the fireplace.



Today I am popping in to share a Christmas card I made for today's Shining the light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs and the color challenge at SC (SC452) which is to use at least three of these colors: Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Island Indigo, Pool Party and Smoky Slate.

Happy Tuesday Friends!! I hope you are all well and enjoying the last of Fall.  It is hard to believe it is already November and that Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner.  The leaves have really changed their colors this week and they are falling.  It is gorgeous!!!

Today I am popping in with this week's Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs!! This week's challenge is: 
Be Inspired by a song or Music.








My card is inspired by Joy to the World!! What joy to know that God sent His one and only son at Christmas!!  While our World places more emphasis and importance on Christmas, without Easter, there would be no celebration at Christmas.  God sent His Son as a humble baby in the humble manger so that He would in the future die for us.  If Christ had not done that for us, what difference would Christmas really make?  Thanks be to God for His unspeakable GIFT.  All we need to do as His people is to accept His gift.  In these trying times when the world seems to be fighting, immoral and falling apart at the seams, WE as a Nation need to RECEIVE HER KING and recognize without Him we are doomed.  Instead our government seems to be trying to push God out of our Pledge of Allegiance, our schools, off our dollar bill, and out of our lives.  This is what our country was Founded on..I am unsure of what our future is as a nation but I thank God that it is He who holds my future!!!




Card Recipe: 
Other dies: Spellbinders Ovals (Classic),  Cheery Lynn French Doily Die
Accessories: Poinsettia embossing folder (SU)
