I have been married to a wonderful man for 16 years now. I am a stay home and homeschooling mom of 4 great children. I am a Christian woman, a sinner saved by grace through faith in Christ Jesus the Lord. This little blog is where I love to share the creations that God has given me the ability to create! I hope you enjoy!
Hello! I've been a bit late sharing this card that I've created for the Clearly iStamp challenge going on this week! It's a wonderful sketch and I encourage you if you haven't already, to go check it out!
This card I've used the wonderful Doodle Cake image from From the Heart Stamps and some lovely papers from Teresa Collins. The image is coloured with pencil crayons and I embossed the circle behind the cake with swiss dots. Then I cut out and inked the sentiment and added a ton of faux pearls. Then I added the butterflies (Forever in Time stamp) and the corner flourish (Inkadinkado) to finish it all off. This card is for a sweet young lady who turns 14 tomorrow!
Have a wonderful day and do come see the wonderful inspiration the team has to share at Clearly iStamp!

Hi Everyone! Today is a new challenge at Card Crafter's Circle, and it's construction time! This time round I've chosen a simple easel card (I've never done it before now.) and used a very sweet little girl image from Digi Darla's called Butterfly Wonder!
I've coloured her up with my pencil crayons and her little butterfly to. Then I used some lovely papers by Recollections, some crocheted flowers with brads, and some punched butterflies that I coloured dots on to match. Plus of course the fun 'grass' I created with my EK Success border punch and the stems for the flowers were from a studio G flower stamp.
Thank you so much for coming to see my card! Have a wonderful day and do pop over to see the fabulous inspiration from the others at Card Crafter's Circle!
Hi Friends, today I'd like to share with you some of the new releases at Clear Digi Stamps this month. Being showcased at the Clearly iStamp blog. I have chosen to use the set Rubber Boots (pre-coloured image and sentiment) and the green digi paper with the set. I added a crocheted flower with brad and some rhinestone butterflies.
I've also chosen to create with this great Construction set! I chose the outline version of the truck and sentiment. I coloured it with my pencil crayons and then added liquid pearls to the headlights and crystal lacquer to the windows. I used a metallic pencil for the silver (chrome) and it has a bit of sparkle to it in the light.
My youngest son loved this card so much that I had to promise to make one for him (different sentiment of course. LOL).....he just adored that truck!
I believe we all have a woman in our lives that has made an impact on who we are today! As a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, I look up to other older women in the faith and the lessons that they share. I have a friend named Rose-Marie that I love hearing from (we live a long ways apart) and she always is encouraging and real with me. She's such a blessing!
Titus 2:3 "The aged women likewise, that [they be] in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;" Each day is a day to learn and to put into practice those things learned from God's Word. Today begins a wonderful new challenge at Scribbles Designs. It is to make a card for Mother's or a special woman in your life. I have used one of Sandy's beautiful flower images (Flower 2) and I actually coloured it with water based markers. Then I used some distress in in broken china to ink the empty space. The background is a fun embossing technique: you ink the folder and then emboss and the raised area is white, this I inked with another colour. The sentiment is from Studio G and then I added a few ribbon layers. We'd love to see your creations for the special ladies in your life! Do pop over to the Scribbles Designs Blog and see the wonderful inspiration that the design team has created for you and then check out the details of the challenge! Oh, and if you'd like to get an image from Sandy's store to play along (this is optional, but we love to see them) you can pick one up HERE at the Scribbles Store. Have a wonderful day and don't forget to make time to tell these ladies that you love them! I'd like to share this card with Word Art Wednesday.
I coloured these wonderful chicks up with my pencil crayons and fussy cut them out. I used papers from Recollections and some vellum from my stash. It's hard to see in the picture, but the vellum is cut in a semi-circle with a scalloped edge to match the opposite panel. The sentiment is from this sweet set to!
Thanks so much for coming by to see me! Have a beautiful day and do pop over to see about the challenge.....lots of fun!
"But God commendeth his love toward us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life."
So what does this mean?
God proved his love for us, sinners, through the death of his sinless Son. This death was not accidental. It was sacrificial and necessary for the reconciliation of sinners. The penalty for sin is death. However, there is hope in Christ! His death on the cross paid the price for your sins and mine and brings forgiveness from and peace with God. Christ's resurrection and present ministry in heaven keep us saved. Once you have accepted this precious gift, you can never lose it! AMEN!
Have YOU believed and been reconciled? I pray that you have!
