A Paisley Rainy Day!

Blog Photos 132

I have another Rainy Day card for you.. but first!.. Guess who I got to meet this weekend! Sally Lynn and Sharon Harnist! How lucky ducky am I? I took a Copic consumer class and got to sit right next to Sharon! She is as sweet as could be! It was awesome to meet them. Sally Lynn is one fabuloso energy girl! If you EVER have a chance to take her class do it! She's a real hoot! You'll learn amazing things from her! My mind is still spinning from all that she taught. I only hope my hands can translate what my head and eyes saw and learned! I was amazed at what I saw and thrilled to have gotten the chance to go!
On to my card! I LOVE this paper. It makes me smile.  When I saw it I bought it in whatever colors I could find it in.. It's Making Memories I believe.. If you have any questions feel free to email me. I have to get my baking going for the day. I hope she inspires you to do something creative today.

Striped Rainy Day

Busy.. busy...busy... Things are always hectic during the holidays and this year is no exception. Although we've added some community service type projects for our kids to do with us this year. As they get older we are ever mindful of strengthening in them the desire to serve their community. This year we are taking them with us to wrap gifts for military kids who probably wouldn't have much and we are also taking them to pack care packages for soldier's serving in Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. We want them to understand that living in this country and enjoying all the things they do comes at a price, and they do to a certain extent because their father has over 20 years in service, but we want them to always be aware of the sacrifices made on their behalf to keep this country safe and strong. The are also taking part in a food drive for our church to donate food throughout the holidays to our local food pantries here in town. Little things that we hope make a big difference in paying forward the blessings we have bestowed upon us. Now on to the card..


Created with my hot pink friends in mind. We all have those girlfriends who are the bright rays in our lives and the make all things easier to bear. I am fortunate to have several and I make many cards with them in mind. I have one friend who always on.. she's funny and full of energy. This card reminds me of her. If you want any specifics please feel free to email me.. I hope she inspires you to do something creative today and that we have inspired you to give a little something back for the blessings you've received. Have a blessed day ya'll!

Stamp Club Creation

Blog Photos 124

Live with Passion.. what a great mantra don't ya think? We created this card in stamp club a few months ago and I am just getting down to posting it now.. I had it in my posting pile.. We did a neat technique with chalk to give this card a soft look. I am not a technique girl so going to stamp club helps me broaden my horizons as far as variations are concerned. While I am not likely to do this often, at least I have the technique under my belt. I hope it inspires you to do something creative today. Have a blessed day.

Hey ya'll. I hope your Thanksgiving was a blessed one! Ours was full of food, friends and fun. We are so blessed to have a home to host all those who share our lives with us. I love feeding people in my home. It's not a holiday to me without having a house full of friends and family breaking bread together. DH and I are so very fortunate to have such wonderful friends and co-workers. We are truly thankful for all the blessings the Lord has bestowed upon us. While this year has been a tough one we still recognize that we are truly blessed and loved by God. Now, on to the card...

This is another Vintage wish. I truly love this set I think it is one of the most versatile. I will be showing you some projects and my Christmas cards in the coming weeks. I hope you enjoy the card and that it inspires you to do something creative today. Happy December everyone. Have a blessed day.
