This cute board was designed by my stamp friend Debbie . She is so sweet and always brings me goodies to play with.  This is a fabric covered canvas board and she colored her pictures with copics! SHE is so talented and needs to be teaching classes!  She keeps me boosted up and shares her strong faith with me and that is the greatest gift of all! This type of board is a great gift and would sure be cute for a a teenagers room. I hope this gives you a  little nudge towards your craft supplies! Hugs! New stampin up catty is here!

For today's challenge your to pick a card and make your version of the card! Then you email me a picture and how you made it. I will post them on my blog and choose a winner of a SPRING TIME GOODIE BAG! You have till May 30th.  The last card is not mine but I just loved this design, and it really is beautiful! Her name is on top.  Get your cards made and share your work! Have fun creating! HUGS 


The pink iris flowers are a great reminder of my mother. She loved them and always had several bunches of them in her yard! She was a special lady that could grow anything! It was like magic! She could pinch a small piece off of a plant and before you could blink she would have a huge pot blooming on her front porch! She taught me to love gifts of nature and she noticed them everywhere. She could get as much pleasure out of a short ride to the store as others do on a long vacation trip.  She pointed out every little detail of God's designs and stored them away in her memory, then she would pull them out later and talk about them. Her flowers were always much larger and brighter than others you would see and they brought everyone lots of enjoyment!
The flowers  are colored with some light, and even white spaces so that you can really see the variegation of colors! Today stamp any flower and send it to someone you haven't thought of or talked to in a while! Hugs Debbie

The weather has been so pretty that I have been out running all weekend so I found a couple of cards in my stash that I though you might like to see.  They are very different, and both have spring flowers on them.  The top card has a very fun technique as the background stripes on it. You can really go crazy with this technique,  and it adds so much to your cards and scrapbook pages. You use blue painters tape and lay the sticky side down on your ink pad, run gently with your fingers so that it grape the color. Then you put it onto your card base and rub so that it adheres and deposits the ink.  The top card has red, blue and green strips from the tape. I then added wash tape at a different angel.  The designer paper with stars was punched with stampin up label punch, and the cut out flowers were placed over the top. This card has a fourth of July feel!  The next card was another one I made with Betty, and she loves to brayer! She is much better with it, but I do love the background look you get when you use it.  The top of the card is brayered with a light blue ink and the rest was a light green. The flowers were stamped on top of the color and then colored with stampin up markers.  The base of the card also has blue rolled onto it.  Each base is backed in black, and placed onto a half page, size card base. The ribbon is sheer and goes under the tope design. The little bird at the top carries your eye upward and gives another focal point.  Get your Card Thing going and design today! Blessings Debbie

SWAMPED WITH Friendship!

How fun and different is this scene? It is Betty's design and really was fun to color! The left edge of the card was made with stampin up fancy scissors that cut in little strips.  It is stamped on shinny white paper and colored with copic markers. I love the artistic feel and look of this the of design.  I have two great friends that love this Louisiana look!  Hope you like it too! Please leave your comment! Hugs! Need supplies let me know!  979-255-0377


This is my stamp friend Lorna's design, and I really like the layers! We had a fun day together and our friend Nancy joined us for a day of fellowship, laughter, and lots of catching up!  My friends bless me so very much, and I can call them after not seeing them for over five years and they come to my rescue too! THANKS TO JORA AND BRITT, FOR THEIR HELP!!!
This card feature squares and black card stock as the frames.  A number of designer papers would really be fun to try on this card too! For the corners I cut the small square in half.  Share this with your friends! I have discovered that many of us make cards but were are not good at sending them out, so for Mothers day make your friends a gift of 8-10 cards with envelopes and stamps! With a special card for them on top! They will be WOWED!
