Hello Friends!! I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful weekend!!  It was a warm and beautiful Saturday and then a bitter cold and windy Saturday.  This a.m. we woke up to a deep freeze at 26 degrees.  So much for our budding trees and flowers.  So sad as everything began to bloom so early. The tulips I share today may be the only tulips I will actually see.

This card uses a sneak peek of the Tulips stamp set and coordinating Tulip die to be released on Wednesday.  It also uses the Deco Border Die, Pierced Ovals, Pierced Rectangles, and Boho Bolds paper pack.

O Lord, how manifold are your works!  In wisdom have you made them all: the earth is full of your creatures.
Psalm 104:24

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a blessed day!  Thanks so much for your views and comments!

Hello Friends!! I hope this post finds you well!! It is hard to believe that we are already on the second month of 2017.  Where does the time go?  In a week it will be Valentine's Day.  Other than making cards for my dear daughters or for my hubby, I generally do not create Valentine's Day.  I do, however, make wedding and/or anniversary cards and the dies and stamps this month at ODBD are perfect.

Today's ODBD Shining the Light challenge at ODBD is a Wedding Inspiration.  I had fun picking and or creating a photo collage of wedding cakes, treats, flowers, and etc.

Since Valentine's Day is about pink or red, the inspiration is peach.

Here is my creation:

Our Daily Bread Designs, designed by Chris Olsen, Bitty Borders, Layering Hearts, Small Bow, Tulip Hearts, Lavish Layers, Pierced Rectangles

It was fun to make a his and her heart to symbolize a bride and a groom.  I used sparkly white glitter paper, black glitter cardstock, and silver metallic cardstock to add elegance.  

We would love to have you join us for the challenge!!  You have until March 5th at 8 pm EST to add your creation to the linky.  For your first creation, you may use any stamps but any additional entries must include Our Daily Bread Designs, Northcoast Creations or Artistic Outpost stamps!

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:

While many associate the verse below with a wedding or anniversary, it applies to us all.  We are called upon to Love our neighbor as ourselves.  When you read the paper, watch the news or even observe the world around you, you can see that many do not Love as God calls us to.  We are more concerned about ourselves or our reputations than those around us.  What can you do today to show love to those around you and to let them know you care.

Thanks so much for stopping by and for your comments!! They are so appreciated!

Here is the side view:
