Hi friends,
Today I am sharing an absolutely adorable card I made with Tonic Studios Craft Kit #19 as well as other products in my crafty stash of goodies. 
I received the kit in the mail, and wanted to try out the size of the sentiments right away, so I decided to go with a square card for my project.

I knew I wanted to use the "Always Believe" sentiments. They were so easy to cut, and I decided to layer the "Believe" as a pink cardstock on top of white. 
The sentiment cuts out with what looks like a sunbeam pattern. To make it fit my design, I colored it using Nuvo Markers that matched the colors of my papers. 

I also used Ranger Distress inks and heat embossed the butterflies that I stamped using BoBunny's Butterfly Kisses stamps. This allowed me to add more sparkle to the card, and a place for it to land when it opens, as it reveals a blue butterfly on the inside, topped with small pearls. 

I used an embossing folder to add texture to the background, and distressed the edges of the paper by tearing it, and then coloring it with Distress Inks and a Nuvo Glitter marker.
The inside of the card also has additional texture with corners cut out with Surprise Bouquet from Tonic Studios, and finished with Nuvo Drops.

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!



March 2011 Crop Challenge

Hi everyone! This weekend I was peeking at challenges and Kathryn from Life on the Scrap Beach had some fun ones. I decided to participate in the first one which required the use of white space. It was fun to play around with the idea and I was able to complete a 2-page layout! Alleluia!! I was so excited to actually finish it! The tricky part was that I had mentally committed to using the stickers ( since I'm trying to use what I have this year) and at first I was all "Whaaat? how am I going to incorporate these & not mess it up?!!" but then, with a little help from my friend's son Stephen, voila! It came together. Thank you Stephen!! <---he told me to put the pumpkins INSIDE the cart!. Anywho- if you even read this, thank you & thanks to Kathryn for the challenge!
