My First Shaker Card

Hello Delightful Friends and Family!

Here is my first shaker card evah! :-)
I really wanted to make one, they are everywhere online and so doggone cute!  I'm going to be teaching one in class in February (not the one here) and hope everyone will have fun with it.  I'll post that one later.  But anyway here is my Valentine shaker card, I thought it turned out well for my first attempt.  The Love die is from Avery Elle isn't it pretty!  I ran it through the Cuttlebug to emboss the dots and then added a bit of Distress Ink (worn lipstick) around the edges.

I'll be entering this card at 
Word Art Wednesday #167 (anything goes)

Thanks so much for visiting!

Now these three remain: faith, hope, and love, but the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13

It's a Guy Thing

Hello Delightful Friends and Family!
Happy weekend to you all!  Here is a card I made using Avery Elle Surf's Up stamp set and Kaiser Craft Blue Bay Designer paper.  I needed a simple masculine birthday card for a class and so here we are...

I've used Ranger's Antique Linen Distress Ink around the pattern paper and sentiment. I've stamped with Archival Jet Black ink and fussy cut the VW van (we used to have a VW van when I was in grade school!).  The embossing folder is from Provocraft.
I will enter this card in the following challenges:
 Simon Stays Wednesday Challenge (It's a Guy Thing)
Word Art Wednesday (Anything Goes)
Cardz 4 Guyz (Birthday Card)
Seize the Birthday (Anything Goes birthday)

I will be working tomorrow at the lss for a co-worker who is sick so I'd best get busy around here and get my Saturday stuff done this evening.  Thanks for looking!!

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.  Matthew 5:6

My Wednesday morning ladies Bible study started a new study called "Sermon on the Mount" by Jen Wilkin.  Just after one week I am enjoying and challenged by it. We started on the Beatitudes this week and it's such a blessing to dig deeper into God's Word!

Birthday Wishes

Happy Belated New Years to my Delightful friends and family!!

I'm really trying to get back into the routine of blogging, not sure why it's been so difficult to get back into a good schedule but that's they way it goes right now... I have many cards to share, just haven't gotten them posted.  I've made ten cards for two upcoming classes in February so I've definitely been busy in the craft cave! Speaking of the craft room, I've been super busy reorganizing and it's been much more efficient (Yay!!) plus my dear hubs bought me a new chair for the room and it's p-e-r-f-e-c-t!!
Here is a card that is part of a six card set for a class I'm doing in February at Scrapper's Edge our local scrapbook store.

Love this paper from Kaiser Craft called Blue Bay.  The dies I've used are Taylored Expressions (Party Time set) and Lawn Fawn (Stitched Hillside Border).  My card base is Desert Storm c/s and Technique Tuesday (Sunflower) is the sentiment stamp. The sequins and seam binding ribbon are from my stash.
I will be entering this card at the following challenge blogs:
Seize the Birthday (anything goes with a topping of "Party")                                                       I'm bringing the balloons to the party!

So glad you've stopped by!  Have a great weekend!

I will praise God's name in song and glorify Him with thanksgiving.  Psalm 69:30

Today is my son Sean's birthday so "Happy Birthday" Sean!!!  I'm bummed I didn't take a picture of the card I made him (it was a funny one) or a picture of the plate of Macaroons I made either! :-)
