Paislee Birthday Card

I know this is not a new cartridge, but I find myself wanting to use the cuts from different carts for cards just to "try them out". The image of this zebra was one of the reasons I wanted this cart, and yet, I hadn't used it yet! Go figure! So I decided it was time to use it and here it found it's way onto a birthday card. I also used the balloons from another cart and welded them to the image. This made it easier to glue the "colored" balloons down to an already existing template. To add a pop of color, I used glossy accents on the balloons & the center of the wheels. I just happened to find a ribbon in my stash that worked for me, and the traffic light is a sticker. TFL!
I used the cuttlebug to dry-emboss the background paper.

The sentiment was a stamp.

A closer look of the now-dimensional balloons.

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.

OMG Moment

So have you ever had one? You know, an OMG moment? I end that phrase with "gosh" by the way. And yes, we all have OMG moments, and for that occasion, here's a card! Interpret as you wish.
