My Heart on a String!

Have you ever felt like this? With your heart on a string?  There have been times that someone has done something for me that I could never repay and it's so special.  The Lord Jesus did that for me when He died on the cross and then offered me forgiveness of my sin and eternal life!  How unspeakable a gift that is!  And it's free for anyone who will believe in Him!
"That, if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. "  - Romans 10: 9-10
There is nothing in the world I am more thankful for!  What are you thankful for? Have you given anyone else this feeling?
For this card I've used the wonderful sketch from Seems A Little Sketchy along with an image from our wonderful sponsor this week Bugaboo Stamps!  I chose this little Girl with Heart because she brought to mind what I shared above.  I used some sweet papers from ATD Momenta and some misc flowers that are acutally curled up a bit but it doesn't show in the pic.  The sentiment is a stamp from Fiskars and the rhinestones are from Forever in Time.

A Day at the Races!

Hello everyone! It's time for the races and everyone is bringing out their glamour and high fashion for the event.  The horses are at the starting gates and everyone is high spirited!  It's a day at the races and we'd love to see you at the Card Crafter's Circle!  The greens are trimmed, the flowers are abundant and the sound of excited horses and people alike mingle in ones' ear.
For my card I've used an image by Whoopsie Daisy (girl with parasol).  I know the hats are all the rave, but this little girl has her darling parasol to show off.  I've used some wonderful papers from American Crafts (it's the sparkly base) and Recollections.  The Stamps are from Studio G and I added some fun high gloss bubble flowers to the banner and rhinestones to her shoes.
While I was out on the trip, we drove past Ellis Park which is a huge race track so I thought you might like to see it. Here it is as seen from the highway!

This week we have a wonderful sponsor and they are offering $10 worth of digis to the winner! Click on the button below to check out the selection!

Please join us for a day at the races over at the Card Crafter's Circle! We'd love the company!

Home Again

Hello Everyone! I'm finally home again and glad to be back!  Thank you so much all of you for leaving me such wonderful comments on my posts while I was away!  It was wonderful to come home to!
We went down to Kentucky and back.  We saw lots of friends and family and enjoyed summer, fall and winter weather on the way.  The main reason was to see my husbands father after many years, for him to meet our children.  They all fell in love with each other!  Such wonderful memories to keep!
Here are a few pictures to share.  There are lots of them and if you want to see them bigger, just click on them.


Thanks for peeking in and I'll have some more crafty things to share with you soon!
Have a great day!

Forever and Always

Hi All! Just a quick post to share with you my card for Seems A Little Sketchy's new challenge! I've used an image from our sponsor Squigglefly called An Early Snow.  I've coloured her up with my pencil crayons and added her to my panels of Momenta papers.  The ribbon is from Stampin' Up and my stash and the bling is from Recollections.  The little sentiment tag is from Digi Doodle Shop as well.
Thanks for taking the time to drop by and see what I've been creating.  Do pop over to the Seems A Little Sketchy Blog for tons of inspiration and another great challenge!

Are You Ready for Snow?

Are you ready for snow? I'm not but this guy sure is!  Love the look of confidence he has!  We had our first snow on September 10th, and it's been creeping down the mountains ever since!
Don't you just love this guy! I'd love to go skiing with him!  You can find Snowman Skier over at Designed 2 Delight's store HERE!
I also tried something new.  One of my K & Company papers is embossed with snowflakes and sanded down a bit. I really should have tried this before!  I used a sentiment that I found at TLC creations and couldn't resist it! It's Free!  I though it went perfectly with him!
Well, if you have snow, enjoy it! It might stay a long time! LOL
Have a great day!

Pile of leaves

Hi! Fall is here and so are all the wonderful colours and piles of leaves!  The challenge over at Card Crafter's Circle this week is Autumn Colours.  So here are my colours to share with you.  I adore piles of leaves to jump in.....yes even at my age and I love the golds and reds.
For my card I've used one of our sponsors images called Kona's Butterflies from Oak Pond Creations.  Our other sponsor is Mel Jen's so double prize this week! YEAH!
I've coloured it up with pencil crayons and markers and inked the edges with orange.  Then I attached it to some cardstock that I cut out with my 'rockies' decorative scissors.  The patterned paper was from American crafts and has a really nice shine to the polka dots!  Then I added some leaves from a blog candy I won and then a strip of ribbon.  It looked to lonely so I added some ribbon that I glued on in ruffles to create a leaf pile.  For a final touch I added the tickets from Digi Doodle Stamps that is closing (they were a freebie).  To these tickets I stamped sentiments from my mini Fiscars set.
Do you love fall? Do you love fall colours? Do play along with us at Card Crafter's Circle this week.

Sending Fall Colour

Hi, I'm so delighted with these images.  I have another one for you! I am totally enjoying the fall colours and they're popping out everywhere!  So sending my love to everyone this fall season.
I used the image Fall Mailbox from Designed 2 Delight.  You can find this image HERE!
Hope you're all enjoying the day! Thanks for dropping by to see me!


Hello! Thanks for dropping by! Today I'd love to share with you a couple cards that I have made for the brand new challenge over at Seems A Little Sketchy this week.  It's a wonderful sketch.

For this challenge I couldn't pick what image to work with so I used my two favourites!  The one above is Birdie Birdie from Digi Doodle Shop and the one below is Hangin' On by Digi Doodle Shop as well.  They are our wonderful sponsor this challenge so do play along for a chance to win some lovelies from them!  Both cards I've used coloured with pencil crayons and markers and the papers are from ATD Momenta and the ribbons are Stampin' Up and Offray and the sentiment is from Fiskars and the rhinestones are from Forever in Time.  Wow, how is that for a run on sentence!
Well, here is my second card I made one rectangular instead of square since I use tons more of these.  I do hope you'll pop over to the Seems A Little Sketchy blog for lots more inspiration and to play along with us! Have a wonderful day!
