When times are Tough

Hi friends. My card today is one I made for a dear friend. I started out with a cloud stencil and embossing paste. I then stamped my sentiment and added my umbrella die cut. Everything is popped up on foam tape for dimension.

Thanks for your visit. See you back here later on this week.

Christmas Card Challenge #47 -- Inspiration Photo

Hi friends. There's a gorgeous inspiration photo to jump start your creativity over at Christmas Card Challenges this week. I think it's obvious how I was inspired. I pulled out my NBUS Believe in Magic set and made a CAS card.  My sentiment is on the inside of my card.

Friend for Clearly Whimsy Stamps

I'm happy to have Diana as my newest follower. Unfortunately, I can't find any information to link to. But thank you Diana for following and I hope you enjoy your visits here.

I have a super CAS card for you today using two stamp sets from the Clearly Whimsy Stamps.  My card is also for this week's challenge at Sister Act Card Challenge. Link your cards up here -- anything goes.

I started by masking the center circle which I then inked with Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks.  I then stamped the honeycomb image from Distressed Backgrounds and Ink Splats. The friend comes from the Happy Hello set which is a super fun set with lots of great images and sentiments.

My card is finished off with a few black sequins and a rounded corner.

I hope you have an amazing Friday. Thanks for stopping by.

Happy 20th Birthday Hannah

October 16th has been a hard day for the last 20 years as it was the day I gave birth to my precious daughter that I gave up for adoption. I've blogged about her birthday the last several years -- part of it was expressing my love, part was expressing my grief and part was a tribute to my sweet daughter.

Many of you know that I was recently reunited with my daughter and my blog posts on her birthdays the last few years played a part in her truly knowing that she had found her mother.

It is with a cheerful heart that I wish my sweet Hannah a happy 20th birthday.

Hannah is everything that I could have wished for. She is smart, talented and beautiful. She has a testimony of her Savior. She was raised by a wonderful family.

Hannah, I love you so much. Thank you for having the desire to find me. My heart is full knowing that my family is now complete.

Welcome Baby

My card today features something that has been long neglected in my stamp room as of lately -- my Copic markers. I get so intimidated by them so I just leave them sit. But I really wanted to use this cute image for a couple of baby cards so I thought I'd bust them out and give coloring a try. I kept it real easy and just used three cool grays in the same blending family.

As always, thank you so much for spending part of your day with me.

Thinking of You

I've got a fun card today with a definite fall feel to it. I used the fabulous stitched leaves dies from Lawn Fawn and then added a wood grain card front.

I've seen lots of people using loose threads on their cards and thought I'd give it a try. I used some hemp cord from MFT, though to keep with the feel of my card.

Take care friends.
