Pretty Tags

HI Everyone! Thank you so much for dropping by!  Today I have some gift tags to share with you that I've created for the challenge over at the Card Crafter's Circle -Gift Tags challenge.
Since I don't participate in the Winter Holiday I have made some generic tags that can be used anytime.   I have chosen to create some fun tags with digis from the set Gift Tags from our great sponsor Melonheadz (the set has so many to choose from!)  Do go and check out the store by clicking on the button below.

I added some ribbon to mine after colouring them with markers.
We'd love to see your gift tags that you are creating for those that you love!  Do come share them at the Card Crafter's Circle!

Cozy Winter Racoon

Hello Friends! Today I have a frosty card to share with you that I've created for the new challenge over at the Card Crafter's Circle - Thankful - Thank You.
I am so thankful for warm scarves, hats and mittens when the snow is falling and the temperatures plunge.  It snowed a bunch here today and that means more time out in the snow, shovelling and just trampling it down in our yard! :)

For my card I used this adorable Cozy Winter Racoon from MelJen's Designs and coloured him with pencil crayons and my new Spectrum Noir markers.  I also coloured some of the snowflakes and added some stickles to them and his nose.  The sentiment is a sticker that I added to white card stock and then matted with the card base colour.  Oh, and I added a decorative edge with some scissors. The background snowflake paper was a freebie online. (if any of you know who by, please feel free to refresh my memory!)
I hope you all are staying warm this winter! and perhaps enjoying some time in the snow, or just watching it fall from the warm side of the glass. :)

I also have a couple of pics to share of the hats that my older daughter and I made this past week.

Renewing of Your Mind

Hi Friends,  today I have a project that I wanted to share with you.  I found this frame at the local recycling free store and added some simple embellishments.  Then I added this scripture that I got from Karen at Papercraft Memories.  It's not a Bible version I use, but the meaning isn't altered at all.  All around us the world is calling us to embrace it's values and interests.  As a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ one needs to seek to become more like Christ and less like the world.  In that way we can know God's will for our lives.  To become like Christ Jesus is the most important thing anyone can do after they are saved.  It is a renewing of the mind....something I'm learning each day.  It's a process of growing in your faith, and putting into practice what is being learned from time spent in God's Word.  I am so thankful that I am able to have God's Word for myself and am able to read any time for as long as I want.  God is so good!  I often think of this hymn when I read this verse.  The hymn is

Turn Your Eyes upon Jesus | Helen H. Lemmel

    • Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
      Look full in His wonderful face,
      And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
      In the light of His glory and grace.

Have a beautiful day!

Birthday Mice

Hello! today I have a card to share with you that I've created for the month freebie challenge at the From the Heart Stamps blog.  I just adore Faiths art and this image is so sweet!
I've coloured this image up with markers and pencil crayons with a touch of glitter.  I made the mice three different colours because our friends don't all look alike and neither to mice.  We get families of voles in our yard each year and they are all different colours.
I've added a couple button tags and used some sweet paper by DCWV.
Thank you so much for dropping by and do go check out this amazing challenge at From the Heart Stamps!

Falling Softly

Hello Friends! I have a card to share with you today that I've created for the Card Crafter's Circle Tread Lightly - Pastel Colours.  Do come to the Card Crafter's Circle and see the wonderful creations from the team!
It's been snowing quite a bit here where I live and I just love it when the flakes slowly drift down.  Today I've used this sweet image Alannah by our wonderfully talented sponsor Kathryne at Stamp Art Design by Kathryne.    I fussy cut it out and added to this winterland scene that I added faux pearl snow and a corner snow flourish to (plus a crocheted flower).  So it's simple and I've left the sentiment off so I can use it for whatever occasion presents itself.
I hope you're all having a great day!

Count Only the Sunny Hours

Welcome everyone to my blog, so glad that you dropped by!  Today I have a couple of cards to share with you for the challenge at the Card Crafter's Circle - Anniversary.
I created this card with my husband in mind, we celebrate the anniversary of our engagement each year (it's on Feb. before the "Love" holiday)  So I used these two images from our sponsor Floppy Latte called Heart Branch and Love Note that seemed more suitable for that time of year.

With some lacy ribbon and some sweet papers from Dear Lizzy and a sentiment from Studio G it's quite simple.  But that's how he likes things.

I decided to make another card with one of the Floppy Latte image called Love Dove as well, just because I saw the image and creativity struck! LOL  So a little softer and a bit more girly.  On the image it says to only count the sunny often we focus on the clouds and rain.  As I look back on my marriage, I can see so many times that the sun shone brightly through the clouds and I can see how very blessed I am by my dear husband.  God knew just the man for me!

I'm sharing this second card with Word Art Wednesday.
Thank you so much for stopping by to see me! Do pop over to the Card Crafter's Circle blog and see the wonderful inspiration there!
Have a beautiful day!
