Forever Friends

Have I ever mentioned that I love animals?  I do.  Any animal.  Ok, maybe not snakes and bugs....but most animals.  LOL!!  And I love animal images/stamps.  Deedee's Digis has some great animal sets and one of her recent ones is called "Forever Friends".  You can find it here (EU Only) or here (non-EU Residents).  I printed the color image in black and white then colored it with an orange Spectrum Noir marker.  I like how it turned out.

The papers were from my stash as well as the ribbon.  Oh - and look at the little easel thing my wonderful husband brought me home from work!  It's just perfect for taking pictures of cards!!!  LOVE IT!  He's such a great guy!!!

God bless you and thank you for spending a few moments with me today.

Dreaming of the beach....

Why is it that everyone seems to be heading to the beach this week except me?  LOL!!  I know of 3 families who are beach bound this week (or already there) and I'm sooooo jealous!  So since I can't be there - I thought maybe I could at least feel sort of "beachy" by making a card using beach items.  One of the things I always loved doing at the beach was looking for why not use "Seashells" by Deedee's Digis for a card and remember those times.  At Deedee's Digis we are sponsoring All Sorts Challenge - No Squares Allowed this week.  Come on over to Deedee's Digis and play along with us....or see who else we are sponsoring too...or just get some great inspiration from some very talented cardmakers!

I just love those old hymns!  They really touch my heart.  Hope this one touches you.  Thanks for stopping by today.  God bless you!!!!!

Tea anyone?

I know most people are coffee drinkers...and while I love the smell - I honestly can't figure out how anyone can drink it!  I can't even stand the fancy mocha drinks or milkshakes.... But give me a cup of tea or a big ol' glass of iced tea (unsweetened of course) and I'm very happy!

I decided to use a set called Cuppa Love from Deedee's Digis.  Even though you do get a colored version with the set, I used the outline version and then colored it in with pencils.  The paper came from my stash - just an extra piece I had from a previous project...and the same with the ribbon. 

I decided to to two different versions....since I did have the extra paper and ribbon.

The insides of both cards are decorated but I think I liked the corner ribbon one better.
