Just a Note

Hello Delightful Friends and Family!
We are having quite the downpour here in our neck of the woods.  We certainly have needed the rain so it is a welcome sight.  Just hoping it doesn't affect the power because we've got a pretty strong wind with this rain. It's a nice day to stay inside curled up with a good book or in my case I'm hoping to get into my craft room soon.
 Hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful change of the scenery with the autumn colors!  I've been  inspired by all the autumn cards I've been seeing!

Here is one of the cards I did for a class this week which fits right into the Fall theme.  I love sunflowers and this sunflower stamp is a set from Technique Tuesday.  I've embossed it using Copper embossing powder from Ranger.  The sentiment is Paper Smooches.  I've used Copper Sheen Card Stock for the top layer and I really like the look of the tone-on-tone with the matching embossing powder.  Such an elegant look for a CAS card and just think of all the different sentiments that could be used!
I will be entering this card at:

Here are some pictures of the sweet ladies taking my class this week at Scrapper's Edge.

Silent Night Card

Hello Delightful Friends and Family!

Here is a sample of one of the cards I made for a class I have coming up in November, it's perfect for two challenges I saw online today.
Word Art Wednesday #154 - Anything Goes using an Our Daily Bread Designs stamp
Merry Monday Christmas Challenge Blog  #130 - Silent Night

I've used silver embossing powder for the sentiment and on the snowflake (Spellbinder die). I've embossed the snowflake multiple times to add dimension and embellished the center with an acrylic white snowflake and a sequin.  I've added a red ribbon for an added bonus of an ornament.  I've affixed the snowflake with a repositionable adhesive Zot.  The stamp from ODBD is from a set called Blessed Christmas.

The embossing folder is from Sizzix  (Snowflake #6).  Neenah bright white card stock and Bazzill red card stock are the papers I've used.

Thanks so much for looking!  

Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!  Psalms 34:8

Couldn't let the day go by without sharing a card for World Card Making Day!

Festive Friday #41 Christmas Door

Hey there Delightful Friends and Family!
Ok, last card I posted was quick and easy and this one not so much!! (ha!) However, once it was designed and figured out it wasn't quite as difficult (I made a second one with a fall theme that was super fun and I'll share it in another post later on).  I saw this inspiration picture at Festive Friday and knew this would be perfect for the challenge! I was inspired by the wreath and door.

The wreath is a Sizzix Movers and Shakers Die which I cut multiple times with light, med, dark green card stock and then added Dimensional Pearls in Red Pepper.  My base is Desert Storm Neenah card stock.  I've added the medium green card stock layer after running it through the Cuttlebug in a Sizzix Brick embossing folder and then with a Ranger blending tool I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink to add a bit of ink to the green.  

Inside of card:  Our Daily Bread Stamp - Christmas Door

Thanks for letting me share and this is one of the cards that will be featured in my class at Scrapper's Edge in November!  

But the salvation of the righteous is from the LORD; He is their strength in the time of trouble. And the LORD shall help them; He shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in Him.  Psalm 37:39-40



Hello Delightful friends and family!!
It's a beautiful Saturday and we had some much needed rain this week (hooray and thank you Lord!!)
Here is a thank you card I did a while back.  A real simple design and quick to put together.
The base is a pre-folded white A2 card.  Add a black layer to the base, then a teal card stock piece 1/8" smaller and run through the Cuttlebug in a "Thank You" embossing folder.  I've added ribbon then cut 3 rectangles using the Spellbinder die (A2 Basic Matting Dies).  I've used a sentiment from the Paper Smooches Blossoming Blooms, stamped with Archival Jet Black Ink and popped it up with dimensionals and that's it.  Easy peasy, quick 'n easy!

I will be entering this card at 

Thanks for visiting and enjoy the weekend!

The highway of the upright is to depart from evil; He who keeps his way preserves his soul.  Proverbs 16:17

Exciting News and a Card

Hello Delightful friends and family!
We finally had some rain yesterday!! Boy do we need it here in northern California!  It is so muggy today I just hope we can have a few more showers without the thunder and lightening!
The weather held up and I went to BBQ lunch with all the school age grandkids today to celebrate Grandparents day.  They are all so stinkin' cute!  No I didn't have 3 lunches but I did sit with the granddaughters and then ate lunch with Jakob and his buddies.

I'm excited to share that I will be teaching some card making classes at our local craft store Scrapper's Edge.  My first class is in October.  I just finished 4 samples for the class which I'm calling Build a Scene.  You know I love to paper piece and I think this will appeal to both beginners and advanced card makers!  I made 2 autumn themed and 2 winter themed scenes.  I will share them here at a later time.  They will feature Lawn Fawn (stamps & dies) and Paper Smooches stamps for this class.  I'm so excited!!!

Today I am sharing a card I made a couple of weeks ago for a family that lost their 23 year old daughter.  She was born with Cerebral Palsy and has been completely dependent for all of her care since birth.  A sad time yes, but now she's free and with the Lord in a perfect body for the first time.  So we grieve for ourselves but rejoice for this innocent one.

I've embossed the yellow panel and then blended white ink over the raised portion.  The designer paper is from Memory Box (that I've been hoarding!), the paper flowers are Sizzix mini Tattered Flowers (movers and shapers line), the sentiment and leaf/branch die are Taylored Expressions.  I've used Archival Jet Black ink and the button comes from my stash.  

I'll be sharing this card at Word Art Wednesday #150 Anything Goes.

That's it for me today, thanks for visiting!

But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.  Isaiah 40:31
