On Stamp TV, Regina has the Mix It Up Monday Challenge which was to make a warm and cozy card. This is what I thought for this challenge. Am also entering this in the 52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown which was to use either punched or die cut images. This is an old DOTS Stamp called Merry Carolers.

Justrite Inspiration blog is having a challenge where you use their stamps and have three flowers on you card ( homemade, bought or otherwise.) A friend of mine sent me a card with a flower this shape on it and I took it off and made me a pattern. I love this flower! I used paper from My Mind's Eye Delightful Pack. I used Justrite Just a Note Set of Stampers.

I am still playing with free digital stamps. I especially like this one. It is hard to see the Stickles I used for accent. The inside has one of my favorite stamps. "Believe in the Lord, He believes in you." It's a stamp I've had for ten years from Effie Glitzfinger St. Louis Designs.
I am playing with free digital images today. There are a whole lot on the web if you just look. I think I got this image from Word Art Wednesday and I am going to enter this weeks challenge on their blog. Stamp TV also has a challenge on their blog to do a Christmas image with distressing. This is not a Gina K image so I won't be eligible for a prize, but if you use a Gina K image on your entry, you can win great prizes!

It always means a lot to me when I get a card that says thinking of you. Then I know I am in someone's thoughts and prayers. I also like to send thinking of you cards. This one is made with Stamping Up's Watercolor Trio. Sentiment is Hero Arts Dainty Thinking. I also used Spellbinders Fancy Tags Three. Will be sending this one to Word Art Wednesday.
I have shared many cards with you. I have been making cards for years and it is my passion. I have dabbled a little into scrapbooking, which doesn't come easy to me. I have made one and one half scrapbooks. Ha! I finished one and I started on another one two years ago and can't seem to finish. Anyway I've decided to try again. After all, I have three daughters and it wouldn't be fair just to give one of them a scrapbook. Here is a scrapbook page I did of my granddaughter.

On the Justrite Inspiration blog, they have a challenge to use three different background papers and their stamps. I used papers from the K & Company K-ology Hannah cardstock pack. I used Justrite Just A Note set (one of those sets you will use over and over again.) My pearls didn't scan very well. Am using this for the Justrite challenge and also for Word Art Wednesday.

I was really blessed this morning. My DH and I went to some garage sales and one of the ladies at one sales was a Stamping Up Consultant. I got 4 sets I have been wanting plus lots of card stock, dp and stickers plus three ribbon holders and dispensers and only spent $22.00. That's what I call a blessing. Here's the card I made. The two sets I used were Celebrate Everything and Watercolor Trio. Used Spellbinders Big Scalloped Rectangles and Background paper is from Close to my Heart.

Yes, I'm using my new set again. I can think of hundreds of ideas for these flowers. I guess you can call me a flower girl. I love flowers! The Stately Flowers set from Gina K Designs is my all new favorite set.
