Good Morning Stampers!
It's a dull dreary day here... but - I am listening to some joyful music so my insides are singing!  :)
I have been having so much fun with the All Dressed framelits; haven't even used the stamp set yet .. hope to today.

The other night a friend dropped by to make some cards - here are two that I made. I am making a set of blank note cards as a gift, so had to have some "dresses" in there!

Thanks for stopping by...
Have a great day!

Swallowtail Challenge

Hi Stampers!
In January I put out a challenge to the Kreations Klub gals to make something using the new Swallowtail stamp. Each one did something different! I just love to see their creative minds at work! I have pics to share of what some of them did for this challenge:
Here is Cindy's shadowbox ... very creative!
Debbie's card ... note the pearls on the end of the antenni
Myra's card ... note the rhinestone eyes!
 Pauline turned her embossed image into a card of the same shape... neat idea.
This is my card ...
 and a close up of the bow in the corner...
I am off to my "Kreations Korner" - hoping to try my hand at the chalkboard technique.
Have a great weekend!

For You - Just Because!

Hey stampers!
It's been a full day today:
... designing and preping for Card Klub which is tomorrow. I always want the girls to have a great time, therefore I try to step out of the box for them, while keeping the cards simple enough to finish in our alloted time. Hopefully their creative juices will "kick in" afterwards and they will build on the cards they have made here;
... cleaner was here to do her regular cleaning - and we took apart the kitchen and did some "spring cleaning"! I am no longer able to do this by myself - what a blessing she has been to me!

I have 2 Klub cards to show you ....
Here is another Tri-Fold card - the butterflies and the "for you" are embossed with the new Pool Party embossing powder. Love it!

This next card uses the sandable CS and the Secret Garden stamps... Just Because is stamped on one of the Secret Garden die cutouts ...
The colors used for this card are all In colors. Don't you love them together?

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
I will return next week with some Klub pics. In January I gave them a challenge using the swallowtail butterfly stamp - hope to see some awesome projects tomorrow!
Hugs and blessings!

Tri - Fold Tag Card

Hey there peeps!
I have made 3 attempts to post a card on my blog... Can't do it on my computer ... Blogger says they can't complete my request.

I am writing this from my iPad and don't know how to get a picture from my camera roll onto my blog post ... So, I guess you are out of luck! I made the cutest tri-fold tag card this afternoon and really wanted you to see it!
I'll keep trying!


here is the front panel

Middle panel -
Third panel ...

I guess you'll have to use your imagination to picture it all in one!
Thanks for being patient with me!

Good Morning!
You may have been wondering where I have been and what I've been up to...

I have written a book - a Devotional Study Book ...
entitled "Finding JOY in the midst ... planting your roots deep!"

It is being printed as I write this! and my team of advisors / editors / supporters are planning a Book Launch for February 2, 2013. I have tried to upload a copy of the poster here but "blogger" is not allowing me to upload any pictures! I understand this is an issue with them at this moment in time. Hope they soon get it fixed! Anyway - if you go to facebook you may see the poster...

Thank you for being patient with me!
I will return - I have some "new stuff" from Stampin' Up! that I haven't even looked at yet! Hoping to do that today! And I will have some creations ... and hopefully I can upload the pics.

Enjoy the snow - stay safe and warm!
Blessings ...

Happy New Years Day in the Secret Garden!

Here it is ... another year! May this one be a blessed year for you all! May it be filled with peace and love and joy!
My New Years Resolution every year for the past 5 years or so has been to take a Scripture that God has given to me and make it mine! By that I mean to memorize it and live it out in my life! Sometimes that has been a painful process as He does the necessary work in this ole gal! I decided to make myself and 2 friends a little booklet to write quotes and scripture in - I found these file folder booklets at the local WM store - covered them with DSP from the new Print Poetry DSP available in the new Spring Catalogue as of  January 2. I randomly stamped a small image on some of the pages...

Just before Christmas I was able to make a card using lots of new "stuff" - here you will see more of the Print Poetry DSP, Secret Garden stamps and framelits... available in the Spring Catalogue. I had received the Trust God stamp set in December and this is the first chance I had to use it... Love this sentiment! :)  Oh yes! Love that Woodgrain embossing folder!
I also used the Framelits Labels Collection and did some paper piercing.
Here is the flower close up ... shaded with ink and blender pen, and then "painted" with shimmer paint. (you don't see this very well in the picture)
Have a wonderful day! Hubby is "puttering" - actually we have a broken pipe so he is trying to fix that! Think I'll go "play" in the craft room!

Thanks for stopping by...
HUGS and blessings!
