October project with Gorguss Girl My Own Universe and Purse Card

Hi all,
I recently made some adorable cards using the Purse Card file from Cricut Design Space.
I decided to also make a coordinating card using the Gorguss Girl image "My Own Universe".
I think this makes a beautiful gift set, and can be suitable for many occasions.
Since October is Domestic Violence Awareness month, I was inspired by all the strong women I know to make something that every woman carries: a purse that tells her story. 
Below is my take on this beautiful card set, and this girl wears a crown!!
The image is colored with Ranger Oxide Inks, and Nuvo Glitter pens. The purse is made with DCWV papers, and I also used a Scalloped edge Spellbinders die for the background. The mulberry flowers are from Recollections, and the wooden dragonfly piece is from Michael's. I also embellished it in gold glitter. Dragonflies are very symbolic of beauty, strength, and graceful movement, so I thought it was a perfect touch for this card. 

Below you will find a tutorial with different takes on the Purse Card, and I hope that you are inspired to give it a try!

Be inspired, Be Blessed- Raquel

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. I'd like to enter it into Crafty Creations Challenge #111- In Stitches, and into Scrappy Moms  Smiley Cards challenge. TFL!

Hope Banner for October Breast Cancer Awareness

I made this banner for Breast Cancer Awareness in the month of October using several Cricut cuts, embellishments, the Cuttlebug and the Stand and Salute cart for the ribbon. I'll be entering this project to Link Up for Pink.
