This Season ...

It's Friday, it's Friday ... woo hoo ! Happy Friday to YOU ! Hope you have a good weekend . Today I am posting my card for this week's Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge which you can find here . Linda Lucas is the hostess for this week and she has chosen ...

Phil. 4:8 ... " Finally brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things . "

This verse is one of my favorites. There is nothing quite so settling in one's spirit as to know that you are thinking right thoughts and have a confessed and honest heart before the Lord. The card challenge for the week is to make an all white or all cream card in pure tones. I love , love , love the look of white cards ... so clean and just makes whatever has been stamped plus the textures pop right off the card ! So here is my card ... recipe is below .

Thanks so much for stopping by !

Stamp: Stampabilities, verse unknown
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: Neenah Solar White
Accessories: Spellbinders Nesties, CB embossing folder, Scor Pal, Copics , Stickles, ribbon, pearls, pop dots

ODBDSLC34 and Greetings !

Hi dear friends ... how are you ? I certainly hope you are all doing great and enjoying gorgeous weather wherever you may be. I do apologize if you have come by often for a peek . When life becomes busy and full , prioritizing has to take place and in my case, although I have been doing quite a bit of stamping , blogging continued to take a back seat. I have missed the challenges and visiting with you and I do promise to post from time to time as well as to come by to gaze on your awesome creations. Our Daily Bread has a great challenge going on which is to use Kraft and black and one other color ... and here, happily is my card for this fun challenge. It's rainy and dark which made it difficult to get a good photo... it does show the shimmer but there is no orangy tone on the ribbon... weird !
Have a wonderful evening ! And thanks so much for stopping by !

Hugs !

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Distress Antique Linen, Brillance Platinum Planet

Popping in to say Hi and a card too !

How are you , dear blogger friends ? It's been quite a while ! What a terrific summer hiatus beginning with my youngest son's graduation and then travel and all the other wonderful things that summer brings. If we could only have a few more hours in a day to do it all. Blogging took a back seat but not card making so here is one of the many I made this summer.

I used an old sketch from Verve , I believe, and really like how it turned out. Some dp from Basic Grey's Max and Whiskers ,a corner rounder on the edges , Verve Plain Jane, some stitching, ribbon , button and cording and done. Of course, isn't that verse soothing and a great reminder of our ultimate Help ?

I look forward to popping in occasionally and also to come peek at your blogs. I just know I'm in for some real mouth- dropping beauties ! Stop by and say " Hi" and let me know how you've been .

Hugs !

SNTODBD10 & SSCC30 Trust in the Lord

Hi Friends !

This week's Stamping in Time challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs is a sketch challenge ! I love a good sketch and this one is a real good one, don't you think ? You can find all the info at ODBD here . This is also for this week's Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge which is to use sponging or distressing.

I am knee deep in grad prep and need a bunch of graduation cards too so this may be the first of a few you see here. Most of my cards need to have a masculine feel so I will be stretched challenge -wise !

I am using dp from Basic Grey's Max and Whiskers pack. I have distressed the brown dp which is layered over mustard dp. The sentiment is from Scripture Collection ... such a wonderful verse... it's stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa. I have used a thin rope-like border to add interest to the top and bottom of the Scripture panel. The panel and it's mat was cut out and embossed with a Curvy Rectangle from Spellbinders. Buttons are from Basic Grey and twine is from May Arts. All the edges have been distressed slightly. Pretty quick and easy and I do need quite a few more of "quick and easy" !

Thanks so much for stopping by ! I so appreciate that you would !

Hugs !

Missing you !

Hi Friends:

How ARE you? I have missed stopping in to visit .

Been heavily involved with graduation preparations ... taken quite alot more time than anticipated. On top of that, we have had rain, rain, rain here in Central OH and there springs a leak right over my stamping table. Big boo hoo ! But hey, after tomorrow , it looks like the rain will move out for a good while, things will dry out and I WILL happily be back in my therapy room ! I am SO ready to go !

I'll be squeezing in some peeks to your blogs to view your gorgeous creations so be seeing you real soon.

Big hugs !

MMSC#53 Sweet Wishes for your Birthday

How are you , friends ? I surely hope doing well .

My card today is for this week's Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge which you can find here .
I had a real senior moment trying to remember which this sketch was while uploading so had to go hunting for it online... ever have one of those? Duh ... Well, onto my card ...
I am using Cosmo Cricket's "Garden Variety"... love that paper ! I've stitched along the right side of the green dp layer. The sentiment is computer generated. The strawberry stamp is a very old one by Rubber Stampede... was stamped twice on Neenah white and colored with Copics R27 and R29. I used a Nestie to act as a template to Copic "frame" the edges with E00. The lace border is a Martha Stewart punch, ribbons and ric rac from JoAnn's and gems from Michaels. A fun challenge !
Enjoy your day ... hopefully with a little stampin' worked in !
Hugs !
