Inspired: Prayer

Hello friends : ) I hope you are having a happy Thursday!

Today I have the first in a series of cards I am creating for my sister and her DIL who are both pastor's wives.  These girls give of themselves in ways that make me proud to know them - always encouraging and supportive and ready with a meal, a smile, a kind word or a shoulder to cry on.  Each card in my collection will feature the "Inspired" series by Papertrey Ink.  I will be posting the cards I'm making for them randomly over the the next few weeks : )

I will be entering this card in the Just Us Girls challenge.

Woo Hoo!! tomorrow is Friday and I will be back with another Fun Friday with Patti & Penny post for your viewing pleasure! heehee

Timeless - XOXOXO

The XOXO of love and kisses truly is timeless!

I created this card for my granddaughter who used to LOVE to play tic tac toe as a child.  It's a little difficult to see in the photo but I created a grid for the tic tac toe board using the stitched hearts die from Penny Black's newest release, Timeless 2019.

Once the top panel was created I simply positioned the letters to simulate a winning game - added a portion of the You Enjoy die, popped the panel up with foam tape and attached it to my 5" square card base.  Easy Peasy!!

The products I used are among the fantabulous!! products on sale on-line in the Penny Black store.

I will be entering this card in the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.

FURbaby birthday

It's Saturday!?! wow where did that week go?!  : )

I have been making more cards than I have been posting these days so I thought I would try to catch up and post some cards as well as play along with some of my favorite challenges.

I began to replenish my card stash in January.  I have lots and lots of cards to make for the year so I usually duplicate designs that  I really like to save time.  All of my cards today use the exact same design and sentiment : )  and all were colored with Copic markers.

It is funny because when I first started coloring with Copic markers I was pretty happy with the results but after looking at a lot of different YouTube tutorials I realize my coloring is painfully amateur! and I feel a little embarrassed to post them.  The only reason I am is because I think I will like looking back over time to see my progress!

My first card is a fun furbaby to enter in the CASology challenge.

My next card is a fun furbaby to enter in the Watercooler Wednesday challenge where they are looking for: anything goes with a masculine twist.

I am wild about this funny dog! I do not have any furbabies but if I did I would love one just like this!!

All of my cards have an embossed number panel under the circular window so I will include these cards in the Just Add Ink challenge too : )

That is is for me today.  Have a wonderful rest of your weekend! and I hope to see you again very soon.

It is Friday and you know what THAT means!!

Penny Black has just released their newest collection, Timeless 2019!! Penny Black's slogan is "Exceptional designs for every style" and ladies this release will not disappoint!
See the entire release in the Penny Black on-line store.

With the help of my son I recently set up a "bitmoji'" on my phone. Have you seen this silly (free) APP? You create a moji designed to (sort of) look like yourself!  I don't know if it is new or old but it is new to me and I am having a lot of fun with it!!

 I sent this to my husband yesterday and was really happy he checked box #1 giggles!

These crazy things are contagious.  I'm guessing you'll be seeing more of "me" in the future.

Thank you for stopping by!! I love seeing YOU here : )
