Today I am playing along with the Library Challenge....use the title, cover, or story from the chosen book to create your card. Five Weeks in a Balloon by Jules Verne is their choice for challenge #37. Of course I right away thought of my new Above the Clouds stamp set and matching punch from Stampin Up. I just love hot air balloon so this set was a must have for me!!
3 Gifts Challenge:(using Ann Voskamp's 1000 gifts daily prompts) 3 gifts learned...Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic//essential in every way!! Contentment//Learn this and you will be truly happy!! About the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ!!
Today I am using a retired set from Stampin Up...Bloom With Hope. I really like this set and wish it would not have been retired!! Two challenges inspired this card...a color challenge from Hand Stamped Sentiments and the sketch challenge from Fab Friday. 3 Gifts Challenge:(using Ann Voskamp's 1000 gifts daily prompts) 3 gifts hanging down...my Bar Harbor wind chime//sweet memories of our 10th Anniversary trip to Maine...ceiling fan//keeping us cool...Eilat stone dangle earrings from our trip to Israel//priceless memories from the Holy Land.
Here is my take on theCAS(E) this Sketchchallenge. All products are from Stampin Up. We had a busy weekend with my in-laws here for a visit so I didn't get much stamping done but we had a great time together!! Time with family is always time well spent!! 3 Gifts Challenge:(using Ann Voskamp's 1000 gifts daily prompts) 3 gifts of stone...My sapphire & diamond ring...with love from my hubby//stone pavers that we picked out for our bedroom patio...excited for this project to be complete//dumptruck of stone needed to fix our driveway...much needed!!
Today I am playing along with the "framed" sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge. This sketch has so many possibilities...I decided to give it a whirl with washi tape!! I like the way it turned out!!
Materials used: Stampin Up's Happy Birthday die and washi tape...Verve's cup cake stamp...Cardstock and ink also from Stampin Up 3 Gifts Challenge:(using Ann Voskamp's 1000 gifts daily prompts) 3 gifts in a jar...Strawberry Freezer Jam!!! Pickles!! My seashells is a beautiful jar given to me by a friend!!
CITRUS!! That is the cue card from CASology!! What says citrus more than a glass of limeade, lemonade or orange juice. Take your pick today!! I used the Colorful Seasons stamp set and matching dies to create today's card. I even included a slice of citrus in each glass by stamping the "slice" onto my inked glass before stamping onto the paper. This technique removes just enough ink to leave a subtle image. Happy stamping!!
3 Gifts Challenge:(using Ann Voskamp's 1000 gifts daily prompts) 3 gifts in weakness...we can see the strength of others//a diamond in the making//ability for growth
Wow!! It has almost been a month since I have created and posted!! I just got in a funk and had no creative juices flowing. But this morning I decided it was time to start creating again. So...here is my take on the sketch challenge from CAS(E) this Sketch. I am using the anchor stamp and matching die from Stampin Up's Sailing Home set.
3 Gifts Challenge:(using Ann Voskamp's 1000 gifts daily prompts) Gift of rhyme, rhythm, and reason...rhyme//a sweet poem a friend wrote about his daughters up coming marriage--sweetest ever!! rhythm//the Lauren Daigle concert that my hubby and I got to attend!! reason//Jesus not just the reason for the season but for all of life!!
I am married to a wonderful man and we have 2 children--a son who lives in Long Island, NY and a daughter who lives in Chicago. We live in Florida, which feels so very far away from our kids especially since we have a grand-daughter and a second grandchild on the way!! For over 20 years I was a Stampin Up Demonstrator, but in 2021 I let go of my demonstratorship. I still love scrapbooking & creating cards and have enough Stampin Up products to last me till eternity...so I will keep on creating!! Proud to be a daughter of the Most High God--who was and is and is to come!!
