Sketch Tuesday of my GAP girl!

Good Tuesday morning! I am so glad that you stopped in on this nice crisp Fall day! Today I am enjoying the weather - not too hot, not too cold, because all too soon it will be on the too cold side for me!

My page today follows Alisa's sketch ST25 over at Christian Paper Crafts. I just flipped it around a bit and added a little spot down in the corner. The stamped image is from Unity and the papers are all My Mind's Eye from the Laundry Line. Embellishes include flower, brad, button, and jute. And the picture - that picture of Abby is in the GAP Casting Call. To vote for Abby, click here. You can vote one time per day!

God Bless You,

Sweet Saturday!

Happy Saturday everyone! I can't believe it is the end of September already, can you? It has rained all day here, so my pictures had to be taken inside...ugh - I love outside and natural light so much better for photographing my goodies!
I was so happy to be able to have the time to play along with the 2Sketches4You sketch today! It seems like forever since I have been able to fit it in! However, with school comes even more responsibilities. Oh, and so tooting God's horn because He is the one that led me through it - received an "A" in the last nursing class :) Without further adue - Valentine in September!

This next card is for 2 challenges! The SSS25 over at the Sweet Spot is where the wonderfully fun sketch came from and SSC5 or Stampin Sister's in Christ is where the theme for season (I chose Fall of course) is from! I was about to sit this week out over at SSIC, but I have participated every week so far, it seemed a shame to not play along this week!

Have a wonderful weekend and a blessed new week!

Scripture Saturday

Hello again! Today is Scripture Saturday over at Christian Paper Crafts! I hope that you will consider playing along. If you do, please upload to our gallery with SS009 or to the gallery of your choice with CPCSS009!
Today's Scripture comes from 1 Peter chapter 4 verse 10. It is a verse that has become very dear to me as I have grown closer to God. Through prayer and time with Him, I have come to understand that scrapbooking and paper-crafting is what I am to use as my tool, "gift" for Him. To God be the glory! As this has become more apparent to me, there have been doors open up, that I know only He could open, and I know there will be many more to come. We all don't receive the same gift (thankfully, how boring would that be)... However, once you discover what your gift is, remember your maker who gave it to you, and use it to bring glory and honor to His name!!
And, here is my page!
God Bless You,

Fun Fall Friday

Hey all you Kentucky fans out there – Kevin Skinner won America’s Got Talent and we couldn’t be prouder of him! Woo Hoo! God Bless You Kevin!
I have had a lot of connectivity issues over the past couple of days and hope they are getting sorted out slowly but surely. This has led to my blog being somewhat neglected. Unfortunately, I have not been able to upload to my gallery over at Christian Paper Crafts either – bummer! Come Saturday night though, MAJOR uploading if everything goes as planned!
This little card is a super fun fall card made for Stampin Sister’s in Christ! Their challenge this week was a sketch – one of my all time favorite kinds of challenges! As a little FYI: you may notice that most of my cards do not have scripture on the front, it is usually because the verse inside is almost always a Bible verse. The stamps are all Papertrey Ink and the cardstock is also PTI. The ink is PTI and CTMH. I am not sure of the manufacturer on the little pumpkin paper, but it was too cute not to use! Jute and a little ribbon finished up this cute number and has it ready to be sent!!
And let me tell you, I have been busy as a little bee working on preparations for Crop 4 a Cure! Don't forget that it is going to be October 3rd from 9:00 to 9:00 at HFWB church - please email me for more details!!!

God Bless You,

The first thing I would like to do today is ask everyone to remember the HEROS of September 11th, those who were lost that day and those who are still fighting for our freedom. May God Bless.

Today's project is a replacement for Sunday's post which did not end up happening. Keeping with the theme of Sunday school Teachers Appreciation, and since the challenge over at Stampin Sisters in Christ is to thank teachers....

I give you framed art and a card! Now in the framed art you will see small writing, it really isn't that small in real life, but it is the Beatitudes. I think this would look great in a Sunday School room that uses bright colors, as all the papers are from Cosmo Cricket Early Bird, except the cardstock which is from Papertrey Ink.

The card is made from scraps left over after the framed art was made! Although I had originally intended this for my Sunday School room, I have decided to place it in a pile for when our Sunday School rooms at church are redecorated! I will let someone else have it for their class since the colors are not what I picked out for my paint :o) And with a 2Sketches4You challenge as the layout of the card - why not add it on there too!

And since it is Friday - how about an extra card for good measure! The sketch from this one comes from the wonderful Card Positioning Systems Blog! And you know what else? It is the first time I have used my sewing machine on a card!!!! I love the result, even for a first attempt!

Have a wonderful weekend and God Bless You. Don't forget to stop back by tomorrow for Scripture Saturday and CASE artist Saturday! You also don't want to miss the last of the prizes going on at Christian Paper Crafts all this week!!

God Bless You,

Scripture Saturday - on a Thurdsay - WHAT!

I know this is late. I really do apologize. Last Saturday we were so busy and it seems my post just didn't, well it didn't post! I didn't realize that none of them had posted until yesterday morning before work and didn't have time to go back and fix everything then.
This page is of my sweet little Abby on one of out many lake trips this Summer. I love how she is looking out at the water in this one! She loves it and we love her. The page was created for Scripture Saturday at Christian Paper Crafts. To find out how you can play along, click here.
Hopefully, I'll get everything straightened out between homework and housework and my posts will be back to regular again!
God Bless You,

Season of Gratitude

Can you say Finally Friday? If you were thinking all week that Friday was taking a long time to get here - I agree! I'm getting ready to start ANOTHER nursing class where I will be doing a community health practicum with our local health department. I decided to make a thank you card in advance for the Director of Nursing at the health department. She will be my "go to girl" for all questions, etc... I am sure she will deserve more thanks than I could possibly ever give her! Since I am so thankful that it is Friday, I thought what better time to make my thank you card than now!

Pretty as a Pumpkin

I just love fall. It really is my facorite season and I am sure I have mentioned that on here many times before. Something about the crisp smell of the air makes me want to have pumpkins sitting around and piles of leafs to jump in! Fall pictures of Abby turned out so gorgeous last year that I can't wait to do it again!
This little card follows a Sweet and Sassy sketch SSS18, but other than that, it was made from stuff lying around the scrapbook nook! Have a wonderful day everyone & don't forget about the membership drive challenge going on over at Christian Paper Crafts!
God Bless You,

Sketchin it for Stampin Sisters

What a mouthful of a title! Since there is no challenge over at CPC on Wednesdays, I decided to use my time to play with Tuesday's sketch again and add it in with Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge for this week, which was to make a card for your significant other and actually give it to them! I will give my honey his card this weekend. We are having a breakfast at church Saturday where the men are doing the cooking as a fundraiser. I will be giving him the card as a thank you :o)

More in Love...

I'll tell you, the more I look at these wedding pictures, the more I love my husband! I love to look at these pictures and walk down memory lane. It's funny that as I look through them I remember memories of the day that I had forgotten until the photo triggered them. I need to look at them more often to make sure I don't forget. And the wedding video... I don't think that we've watched that but one time... Note to self: Need to make a date night with hubby to watch wedding video...
Since I have a desire to make my wedding scrapbook, I decided to use the Tuesday Sketch over at Christian Paper Crafts as my starting point!

A little Basic Grey, My Mind's Eye, Bazzil flower, prima bling, lace, edge distresser, CTMH cocoa ink, PTI Heart Prints, and a metal C to complete the layout!
One thing I like about scrapbooking is that although red was no where in our wedding colors, it was fun to add a little dose of red onto the scrapbook page and tie it in with the photo by making sure there was purple on the hearts of PTI heart prints stamped images to match the purple in my flowers!
Have a wonderful Tuesday!

God Bless You,
