I knew I wouldn't have a chance to post this Satruday as it is a busy day! Having a group in to do a Stamp-N-Stack of Valentine cards; out for supper (hubby is off this weekend - whoohoo!!!) I made this card yesterday using the Birds and Blooms die cuts ...this is the first time I've used them even tho I rec'd them before Christmas! It was a bit tedious - but fun! Now I need to get the creative juices flowing so I can come up with some different ideas for using them! I cuttlebugged the background using the Swiss Dots - has to be my fav so far!
Blessings on yah!

Two posts in one day! I decided today to do a color challenge...Kristina Werner at KWerner Designs posts a Color Inspiration Challenge weekly. Some of the cards submitted for her challenges are awesome! She will pick 15 personal favorites from all the submissions (last week there was over 200+ for her to look at!) So - here is my card for this challenge... using So Saffron, Green Galore, Real Red, Whisper White, Basic Black. You will note that I have used some Glittery black and silver CS that I purchased at Michael's a few months ago. The stamp set is a retired hostess set from Stampin' Up! called Serene Spring - earlier today I mentioned how I long for Spring to arrive! Guess that's my theme for today! I colored with blender pen, markers and ink; used black gingham ribbon , bold brads; also, the scallop edge punch.

I imagine you're thinking, "What is that word?" Well, it is a Greek word - meaning Jesus Christ, God's Son, Savior - I just did some research on the FISH that you see in the card I made... I never really understood why the fish was a symbol of my faith. Now I do! If you're interested in reading more go to the Thisisthedayrejoice link to the right of your screen on Friday the 23rd of January!
This fish is in the stamp set "Flourished Christian Symbols" by Our Daily Bread...I clear embossed the fish but you can't see that in the picture. Again, I used the Ink, Spray, Smash technique on this card....I still haven't perfected this tech. but hope to do so at some point! Hope today has been a good one for you all! Remember ... "There is always, always, always something to be thankful for!" Don't know who said that but I certainly agree with them!
Blessings on yah!

At this moment in time I am in a LARGE learning curve!!!!!!!!!!!
so please bear with me! :)
I made this card to give to a lady in our church family who lost everything in a house fire just prior to Christmas... the congregation got together last weekend to "shower her with blessings". I am awed - as she was - at the outpouring of love extended to her!
