This has been a very difficult time for Rusty and I and we are trying so hard to search out and see every blessing everyday! His mother Mama Lake always told us to smell the roses no matter what was happening in our lives and I am truly trying to practice that good advice now. Rusty has had radiation treatments and he is really keeping a great attitude even during bought of feeling so sick and in so much pain! My CARDS TODAY ARE ALL FLOWERS TO INSPIRE YOU TO MAKE THE TIME FOR YOURSELF TO LIFT YOUR SPIRITS!! Only one more week of school and we can try to get some much needed rest and try to h eat and regroup! Please continue the prayers! Hugs Debbie

SORRY MY CARDS ARE SO DARK THIS POST! My phone is acting up and have not been able to get it to the repair man yet! But had to share these three lovely designs with you! The first card is colored with copics and then a large flowers and leaves in 
the left hand corner was colored and cut out, and pot on top of the original design.  I love to color and my friend Debbie was here giving me tips.  She had really developed her talent with copics! Joyful in the Lord is the them for me this month as we struggle with Cancer! My husband is so strong and fighting it daily and I am leaning every day on my faith and the trust in JESUS!!  Please add us to your prayers! 

The next pop up card is really my favorite in a long time! My friend Debbie brought the card to our last stamp day and taught us how to make it. There are four sections on the base of the card and four decorated sections on the top of the card that stand up.  They are held in place by a colored brad.  The card will fold down flat so that it fit in an envelope. Love special folds and they really inspire my creativity ! You can find these directions on you tube.
 This design is so fun to make. We sponged the pink background color on top of the lower part of the card and then added cut outs, flowers and glitter over ribbon. There are many layers to this card and I also like to have many different features on one card. I just got my distress oxide inks and will be working with them to show you soon!
This card is mostly die cuts and I really loved the two colors together. The black bling really added to the look and it was very fast to make. Love the new die cuts form stampin up, and I will be happy to order yours! Contact me Debbie

LETS COLOR Great fun and Therapy!

Ice cream truck by stampin up is so cute and fun to make!  This design is by my stamp friend Debbie she is so talented and brings great projects for us to make at out stamp days together! You can just go wild with this stamp set. The retired stamp set are out so look online to get what you want before they are all gone and there are some great sales too! I will order for you! 

Debbie colored this beautiful card and it just makes the girl almost look alive! She used copics and she highlighted around the image with a light blue. That really gives your card some depth, and draws the eye right to the the main focal point! The background is beautiful dies cut that frames the card very nicely! 

These two girls are having wonderful friendship and fun together and that is how I feel about my stamping group! We just help each other and support each other and keep each other lifted in prayer! Thanks to all of you who have been praying for Rusty and our family! We are trusting in the Lord and letting him guide us on this cancer journey! Please love your family hold them, mend fences, get into your faith, as you will always need that! 

This lady is dancing to celebrate springtime! This card is a scene and then the lady is stamped and cut out and added to the top of the card! This is a great coloring card and the picture is a little dark but you can design your from it! I hope you enjoy the fun cards and get inspired to share your cards with someone soon! Hugs for your orders!

 This first card was so much fun to make! I was stamping with friends Betty and Lorna and Betty taught us how to make this pop out card! I want to make more during my time off for Easter!

 My friend Debbie made this little girl praying card and it just reminded me of how powerful God's promises are to us and prayers do work! Debbie is very talented and colors so beautiful with her copics! She also designed the fruit basket card and it is just stunning in person. She is one of my many blessings along with Lorna and Betty my regular stamping buddies! They keep me strong and help to lift my spirits! Hugs and special Happy Easter to all of you!

NEWS about New Cards!

I love this little children garden scene. This was a gift print out from my stamp friend Freddie. The die cuts gave the garden a fence and gate to keep the Easter Bunnies  from eating the lettuce! I stamped the corner pieces and colored them and fussy cut them out to add a design. The fabric flowers on the top right was in a stamp kit and it just matched perfectly.
This stamp and die cut set is Botanical Blooms 17 clear stamps and it is one of my favorite! ($
17.00)There is just unlimited variety of designs you can make with it and then when using the die cut your design pops up off the card to form the most beautiful arrangement! Dies have 14 cuts and are $33.00.
This easter card is another printed design with a stamped sentiment and a fabric corner with flowers added. It was quick and easy card that has lottos texture and depth. I hope these ISPIRE YOU! contact me for your order of supplies

THIS CARD IS CALLED A SPLIT CARD . You make two cards on two contrasting card stocks and then slice them about a third of the way down, and match the designs up to each other on another base card. I used white and red embossing powders for my sentiments.  I am going to make more on different colors and see which I like the best. I made several mistakes and learned what to do on my next sample. Make sure your embossing colors match your card stock well. Next be sure to stamp the same image on the same spots on both cards so that they line up easily. This technique is on you tube! 

This little egg fairy is getting ready for Easter so she is enjoying life while decorating eggs. She is standing on designer paper that is bright and glittery! Then I used my glitter pen from stampin up on the design to give it some bling boost! Please contact me for the things you need to order for your projects! 
I am asking for prayers for my dear husband Rusty he has been diagnosed with cancer and has started chemo. We are standing firm within our faith and the Lords strength and love! Prayer is so powerful and it works! Hugs of Inspiration and Love to all of you! Debbie

Today I am singing praise songs! This is something I do often and hold my own little worship in my home and in my heart! These songs take me back a million miles, and a through a million wonderful people who lift me up and remind me that the Lord is in control! We have enjoyed the week of Spring Break so very much and rallied with the love and support of our family in San Antonio! It is amazing how seeing them and drinking in their love and words of kindness, and words of Faith and WISDOM, that gives us a renewal of strength and love that just keeps us strong and moving right where the Lord leads us! They teach us something new about ourselves and this wonderful world every time we see them! I am so very thankful that the Lord blessed us with these two young men that have grown into such wonderful leaders and support to so many!( Especially their Dad and I!) We are having the role reversal now where they teach and lead us and it feels so wonderfully full of God's LOVE and work, while it gives me such strength and resolve to stay on course, with and through our journey of FAITH !  Then we are just overwhelmed with the blessings of their wives and children, that add another layer and level of love, understanding, support, to our family! When we get home we relive every little word, jester, facial expressions, and actions that we have experienced,  then we sit in amazement, at our blessings gathered from their actions and lives! What gifts of love and affirmations that the Lord has blessed us with through our FAMILY our PEOPLE! Today we are blessed with them, by them and through them! Thank you Lord for these amazing gifts!

The two cards were made with my stamping friends! They also bring me such levels of friendship and support and love that I am also counting them as part of my blessings today! They often come to my rescue, give me support and strength and let me use them as counselors and they do not charge anything or expect any payment in return. They check on me often and send me lots of love and support to make it through!  They too are my family! I am thankful for Debbie, Betty, Lorna, Carolyn, Barbara, these are my prayer warriors, and I always know I can count on them!  The thinking of you card is for all of your today! I think of you often and I am blessed by your friendship, sisterhood, and LOVE! 
The first card is a new stampin up scene stamp that has four beautiful scenes to color and add designs to on your projects. I love to color and so enjoy this type of stamp, it is very different and can be used for  both males and females. ( Mediterranean Moments $20.00 four designs) ( Beautiful You, is the lady dancing set with 3 ladies and 9 sentiments $28.00)  The thinking of you card is a mixture of several floral sets that I stamped all black on white then stamped and cut out the leaves and flower in color to add a very special focal point!~  This is a larger card made with half of a full colored card stock. The die cut is in black at the bottom and there is one inside the card as well.  I hope this inspires you to create a special card and gift it to someone that needs to know today that there is someone out there that cares! Share Gods LOVE! Hugs Debbie
