Flowers, Flowers, Flowers

If you look at most of the cards I make, you will probably notice a dominate stamp. That would be a flower. I love to use them and I have fallen in love with a new Flower Stamp ~ Big Bloom by Winnie & Walter, LLC.

Here it is:

Don't you just LOVE it!

I stamped it three times on some pattern paper and then cut it out and layered it.
Sentiment is a die from Simon Says Stamp.

Thank you for stopping by! Blessings to you and yours.

"I have set the LORD always before me; Because HE is at my right hand I shall not be moved."
PSALM 16:8


I love making cards and I love to share them. BUT the process of sharing is tedious for me: Taking the picture, editing it so it is easy to manage size, then gathering all the supplies I used so I can make sure I give credit where credit is due. If any of you have some tips on how to better manage this, I would greatly appreciate it :-)
I was going to make individual posts for each one of these but decided against it ~ too time consuming ~

So here goes:

We make friends throughout our life. Some friendships last for a very long time and others do not. I know that there is a reason for each friendship we have. We have recently experienced a major surgery for my husband. He had a kidney transplant and this would not have come to be except for God using our friends to share with their friends the need. What a testimony we have and I would love to share it here soon.

When I received this Simon Says Stamp March Stamp Card Kit, I did not have time to really sit down and play with it. But I have now and I am loving the sentiments and the flowers. Here is what I did today having been inspired by Debby Hughes  card. She used the products from the May Simon Says Stamp Card Kit.

Sentiment: Simon Says Stamp ~ Flowers On My Mind
Die-Namics: Pierced Circle STAX
Lil' inker Designs: Stitched rectangles
Paper Smooches: Flag Tags Dies

Have a glorious day!

Great Big Hello

Loving the new Hero Arts Stamp & Cuts sets. I used the "Hello" Set for this one.

I made a card very similar to this a couple of months ago. Changed this one up a little bit.

The sentiment is from the Hero Arts HELLO Stamp & Cut set (which comes with the die for the word HELLO also). I recently purchased the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders Dies and used it to cut the inner panel. The HUGE, gorgeous butterfly is from MARTHA STEWART CRAFTS in a package of 8 with 4 different designs.

Blessings to you and yours. Thanks for stopping by!

Fresh Daisies

I really do LOVE daisies ~ especially gerbers!

This was a really fun Simon Says Stamp die to work with. It is not your typical looking daisy but it puts a smile on my face.
