Prayers for Lauryn

 I have been following Linda Payne for awhile now and was so sad to hear that her granddaughter was diagnosed with Leukemia last month. There was a blog hop for Lauryn and they posted the address of where you could send a card to little Lauryn and this is the card that I made for her.


I bought this stamp set from CKC thinking it might make some fun birthday cards but when thinking of something to stamp for Lauryn I thought, this might be perfect for her to let her know I think she is strong. I pray for strength for the families, I know how tiring it can be to have someone in the hospital.  Boy I hope she likes pink because I went a little overboard with the pink :)

Fun Stampers Journey -- Superheroes stamp set, colored w/markers
My Mind's eye -- quite contrary paper
Spellbinders -- classic ovals lg , floral ovals and A2 scalloped borders two dies
Paper studio -- Washi tape
Memory Box -- Parker upper case dies
Star -- Ginx coaster board, painted with pink distress paint and then added doodlebug, crushed velvet flock
Gem

You can follow little Lauryn on Facebook  Here.  They also have the address where you can send her card on facebook.

I had posted about little Brooklin a little while back when I posted a card I made for her and her family, if you would like to read about her too this is her Facebook page.

It is so hard to see little ones going through so much at such a young age, can't imagine what the families are going through.  Praying God grants healing and comfort for these little girls and peace and strength for their families!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,

He is Risen!!

He is Risen INDEED!!   Happy Easter, I was going to post before church this morning but that didn't happen.  I only managed one Easter card this year and I sent it to my Daughter and Son in law.


Cheery Lynn Designs -- Nesting Eggs and bunny dies
Fiskars -- Grass border and cloud punches
Spellbinders -- Large classic inverted scalloped circles die
Stamps 4 life -- postmarks 2 stamp sentiment stamp
Cloud designs -- Rain dots

All the papers were in my scrap basket.  I layered a darker green grass behind the eggs and bunny and then popped up the front grass.  The bunny was cut from kraft cardstock and I used inks and white chalk on the bunny, added a little eye with a black pen.  The front eggs and the bunny also have pop dots on them for added dimension.

Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead,
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by, I know how hard that gets now that the days are getting nicer :)

More Silhouette cuts

When I had all the supplies for the card I made awhile back sitting on my desk and needed a card for my Great niece who is a preteen I decided to use some more of the cuts Greg made for me on the Silhouette Cameo.  These were made using his idraw program on his Mac too.


     I have been really liking all of the little banner dies but haven't splurged on buying them, didn't know how much I would use them so I showed Greg the kinds I liked and he made this design.  I love how he gave it a little extra by giving it a look of string holding the banners on to the main one, of course I tried to put it on with a little curve and since I had dimensional adhesive on each banner it was a little tricky setting it down, I was too worried about ripping it if I tried to move it so I let it be.  Next time I will just put it on straight :)
     He also made what I would call a flower, he was trying to make the look of a doily for me since I also said I would like some of those, the center of this is a little smaller than the sentiment I put on top. 

Greg's designs on the Silhouette -- Banner and flower
EK Success punch -- circle 1"
Stamps 4 Life -- Minis 4 circles stamp set(sentiment and design around sentiment)
Martha Stewart -- Sans-Serif font stamp set on banner
Teresa Collins -- Carolina Breeze paper


 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Galatians 2:20
Reflecting today on the price Jesus paid for me.

Wishing you all a blessed weekend,
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,

Christine's Inspiration

Here I go again posting kind of late, been another one of those very busy days and I just had to make myself stop and post.

Today I am sharing a card inspired by Christine  of Christine's Creations.  In this post , she colored on Kraft cardstock and I just love that look, had to give it a try.  My card will be going to my friend that loves the country feel and I thought coloring on kraft paper would be perfect.  I tried to do soft coloring like Christine but lets just say she is a pro at coloring and I am still learning :)  but I do like how it turned out.



Inkadinkado -- Beauty stems from here stamp set, colored w/ pencils
Simple stories-- Generations paper
Spellbinders Classic Rectangles small and Back to basics tags dies
EK Success -- Corner punch
Queen & co. -- Yellow Sunshine pearls
Hero Arts-- Birthday messages stamp set
Bazzill Basics Paper -- Brads

I outlined the flowers and the leaves with a light blue color but in the pic it looks like I went outside the lines with my white pencil.  The butterfly was stamped once and stamped again on cardstock, colored with markers and glued on top.

I sure hope you get the chance to stop by Christine's blog she does Beautiful coloring, she shares her beautiful photography too, such wonderful inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by today,
Connie

So sorry

This is for a cardmaker that I met on line many years ago, a group of us still get together on the weekends on line to catch up on each others lives.  Her son in law has been battling cancer for some time now and he passed away this past week, this is going out to her and her daughter.



Greg asked me if there were any borders that I have been wanting and haven't gotten yet and I showed him this picture over at Stamp TV I just love that border and so he used "I draw" on his apple computer to make this border and then cut it out with the cameo.  As you see he added a little flourish on top so that is a little different, later he made one without if I didn't want that added.  When I found this paper when I went to make the card I thought the style of the border went very well with the paper.

Inkadinkado -- Garden delight stamp set, in black and gray
Teresa Collins -- Carolina Breeze
Spellbinders classic ovals die
Border made by hubby cut with Silhouette Cameo

We have been having terrific weather here the past few days, I have been getting out and doing a bit of weeding until I start to get a bit dizzy, but I am doing so much better now.

Hope you are enjoying some wonderful spring weather this weekend where you are,
Thanks so much for taking the time out to stop by and leaving your comments, I really appreciate that,
