Making cards is a blessing

It's true. Making cards is a blessing to me. I enjoy it very much. It is my little cozy corner of the world. I can relax and enjoy myself and see what turns out. I love it. Here are two cards I made this weekend.

Made this card for two challenges. One for Stamp TV Case the designer, but change things and make it your own. Theresa Momber was the selected designer and she has very lovely cards with scenery and lots of shading. Here is her website if you want to be wowed. Also made the card for a favorite blog of mine Word Art Wednesday. They are a wonderful bunch of Christians who host challenges every Wednesday. Used the Iris and caption form Gina K's Bold and Beautiful set.

Happy Fall Y'all

Just had to share one more card with you today. There isn't any stamping but it is cute just the same. After every holiday, Walmart reduces items connected with that holiday way down. I got a lot of Christmas and Thanksgiving and Valentine papers and stickers that way. This is just one of the Fall cards I made.

Word Art Wednesday Love Challenge

The Word Art Wednesday Challenge was Love, because God loved us first, or to use an encouraging sentiment on your card. I used Sizzix Leaves embossing folder. I used Spellbinders Fancy Tags Three. The sentiment is from Stamping up's Thoughts and Prayers.

Sew Pretty Stamp TV challenge

I made this card for the Stamp TV Sew Pretty Challenge. I didn't have any sewing related stamps or paper, so I downloaded some clip art from the computer. Just like digital stamps. I did faux stitching as my sewing machine is acting up.

Thanks so much

This card was done in response to a Stamp TV Challenge, Free for all Friday, Thank you, thank you. thank you. I used a cling stamp from Tim Holtz Components Collection and my sentiment is from Gina K Designs All Ocassion Tags by Tami Mayberry. The ribbon is from Studio G.
