Blessed everyday!

Hello stamp friends! I am up this morning counting my blessings again! Rusty is feeling better and radiation is killing the cancer ! We hope for complete healing and he will  finish chemo in July.  Our family is coming to vist this week and we will Celebrate Father's Day when they all get here! Here are several cards for you to enjoy and hopeful get inspired to make something yourself. I love birds of all kinds and this bird is one of my favorites to use! I loved all of the bright colors and just stamped the leaves in different colors to bring out the color in the bird! 

The door is a scene stamp from stampin up and it is so much fun to color and design with, let me know if you want me to order one for you at

 This nest is for the sea birds to have their new babies in and it reminds me of our trips to Rockport to see Rusty's family! We were so blessed to have great place to go and visit and have a vacation right on the water! They lived one block from the bay and we had all kinds of water adventures when our boys were growing up. There is nothing better than friends bringing over fresh fish and shrimp to share! The stamp set is so fun and can be yours! Email me.
The light house is such a great symbol of light and support for our lives! I hope the Lord is the Light of your life and just ask and he will show you the way! Happy Stampin! Debbie

This lady with the umbrella is so very versatile and fun to stamp and design with. The background is a scene stamp both form stampin up and very fun to color. I colored the lady and cut her out and added her on top of the black scene. It look like she is walking in to do some window shopping! Contact me for your order . 

Paris for a summer visit? This card was design by my stamp friend Debbie. It is a larger card and I love the die cut topper. 

Lamps stamped on card front, and background stated on base of card to start the layers for this card. I then added designer paper and ribbon and some bling on top. 

The flowers were die cut and then a colored card stock added to the back to show through as well as the leaves. The different textures of each paper really give the card some great depth, and an elegant look. 

These girls were so fun to color and make me miss my stampin buddies! We have all been busy lately and we need to stamp together soon! I hope these designs inspire you to try some new things and get some cards made today! Send me one and I will send you blog candy! Happy Stamping!

This picture is too dark but you get the best part and that is the flowers and leaves. The card front is dark green and then the flowers were colored and cut out and put on the top of washi tape in lavender colors. There is black bling on the sentiment that says anything for you! I had never used this set and I really love it want to make some more in different colors too! 

This is a flip card with a bird theme! The pond is full due to all of the rain and the birds are coming in all day to drink. Yesterday we had a big white sea bird of some kind visit us! It makes me remember Mamma Lake and Nan Naw's love for birds and it was a fun topic for all of us! I used some of the left over flowers to  THIS FLIP CARD AND IT JUST TURNED OUT SO PRETTY! 

Indies the card has a white base to write on and I thought I would send my little girls a picture inside the card. They love to get post cards! HA ! They say Nannie you haven't sent us a post card in a while! I try to add ice cream money so it also has an adventure inside! 

I am very thankful for the students that came and helped me to put away things that have been out since I went to work! They went up and down the stairs for me and we had some great smiles too! When we are done we will celebrate with a card making class for them! This inside is glued flat to the front cover and then the inside flips so you can decorate each side. Very fun and easy! Been missing my stamp time with my friends and look forward to some time this week! Hugs and Happy Stamping to all! The new stampin up catalogue is out and I am ready to order for you call me 979-255-0377 or

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

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!

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 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

Hello stamping friends! I have been too busy with work that I have not had much time to play but I posted a few cards to give you some new SPRING TIME INSPIRATION! This first card has the wood look behind the tree and I love this stamp, lovely as a tree one of stampin up's very best! The leaf by the sentiment and the flag cut design just gives the card several fun features for you to try. This card can be done with many different colors and stamps and you could design a variety of style with this one design. 

 The next card is the same design stamped several times then layered and put on with pop dots so it gives it that look of beautiful layers that line up in the design. The red flower was added for a focal point and there are several red flowers inside the card too! The swirl accent color then carries over to the base card and also to the inside. You just can not make enough of these in different colors and try a variety of stamps. I want to try butterflies next time!
 This little flower card really made me  think of Spring flowers and sunshine!  The flowers are blooming out of washi tape and the bling pearls and little blue butter fly that is fluttering off the card give it the little extra love! The base of the card has a verity of designer papers that add color and movement to the design.
This bike card says it all for me the week. I need some one to pedal for me as my pain level has been so high but just one week till spring break and then I can get some much needed rest! I love to color and this little scene is very fun and you can use a variety of colors to match the base of your card! Hope you are inspired to make some great cards and get some fun stampin done! Hugs my friends!

Come On SPRING!!!

Hello stampin friends just a great day for getting out my stamp toys and enjoying the relaxation and therapy stating brings!  This card is one that has several layers and it is elegant yet very simple to make. The lattice is die cut out of a coper paper that gives the card some bang and brings out the  print on the background. The flowers were stated and colored with stampin up markers. 

This little chick is holding the balloons with a bow made with the bow punch! The side panel is die cut and then lawyered over the solid card stock for the base of the card. A variety of balloons were punched out of stamping up designer papers. The little hearts are for valentines day!  

This sea scene is a favorite of mine and I love coloring it! My friend Debbie shared this with me and I love it so much I have to make some more! Hugs for a Blessed week and fun stamping! contact me for you orders.

This card was a group project and a little design from myself and my stamp friend Debbie. She designed the base of the card and cut us these beautiful shinny coper designs. There was a box that held the cards for a very nice gift. I was stingy and kept the box for me as I just loved it! So, I took some of the cards and added some stamped flowers and color to make it a new design to work on.  This gave me such boost that I was able to design and make the next three cards too! Hope this inspires you when you have design block to get out something you really like and add to it or start over using that design and add a new something to the basics design, 

This new card has been embossed with the stampin up embossing folder that has two folders in one PKG! I first embossed the base of the card in white, and then embossed the top flowers and colored them with copic markers and cut them out and added them over the white embossed base card.  The pearls on the sentiment and the center of the card really added a little extra to the design! The card base is a DSP that is a mix of all of the colors in the card front. 

I so enjoyed this new Irresistibly floral Speciality Designer Paper (141644) from stampin up. It has the floral design embossed in white and you add the color with a dauber sponge or brayer to give it the colored background for your project! Like a box of chocolate never know what your going to get! Have some design therapy this week! Blessing to all of you! email me for your supplies. 

Blessed everyday!

Hello stamp friends! I am up this morning counting my blessings again! Rusty is feeling better and radiation is killing the cancer ! We hop...
