John 3-16

Last week a friend asked me to make a card for her.  She wanted it to have a church and the Bible verse John 3-16 on the card.  Well, I don't have a church stamp and couldn't find one online that I liked.  So she told me to go ahead and just make something pretty.  I am really thrilled with the card that I made for her.  I found the stamp online - it is a digital image.  I just love that I can do a search, find an image that I like, purchase it ($3), print it out and voila - make a stunning card with it!  You can also do that with Stampin' Up's My Digital Studio images.

The card base is Concord Crush.  The DSP is retired from SU (Bride) that I just love.  It is white paper that I sponged Concord Crush onto it and the white swirls pop.  I used various markers for the flowers and a tad of Stickles to make them sparkle.  I cut the image out and popped it up on Nestabilities Label Six.  The label and the book pages were sponged slightly with Soft Suede.  I used a Martha lacy punch for the vanilla cardstock at the bottom..

I even prettied up the inside of the card!

I hope you had a good weekend.  I took my mom shopping on Friday.  I picked her up at 10:30 Friday a.m. and I didn't return home until almost 6 pm!  Whew!!  We had a nice day and I didn't buy too much - got a jacket, shirt and Coldwater Creek jean capris - all for $30!!  Not bad, huh?  We went to lunch and on the way home, we stopped off at Kohl's.  Mom was looking for a spring purse but they didn't have a lot of them so she settled for a real pretty black and white floral bag.  I also got a couple of pairs of earrings and a necklace.  
Yesterday was supposed to be rainy and I had already decided I was going to make some cards.  I have an order for a few cards so I made great headway with them.  Plus, I need to get my club cards made.  Anyway, it didn't start raining until last night but I card-ed anyway and made about 6 cards.  Today was rainy all day and cold again!  Our yard looks like a swimming pool from all the rain.  

I have not talked to Ashley since last Thursday.  We usually "skype" every day or two.  She has not been on-line and I am freaking out a bit.  Hopefully, it is nothing and I will skype with her tomorrow.

Final Days to Sign Up Plus Christmas Cards

If you're considering signing up as a demonstrator during Stampin' Up's great Half-Off Sale, time is running out.  You have until Tuesday - Nov. 30!!  Contact me to get your password and you can sign up on-line!!

I had so much fun yesterday blog hopping!  I visited all the sites on the Christmas Card Blog Hop that I participated in and got so many great ideas!  I appreciate all the people who left wonderful comments about my cards and became followers of my blog.  You inspire me to work harder on being creative!!

So, yesterday and today, I found time to make a few Christmas cards.  I hope you enjoy them.

This is probably my least favorite.  I have just never liked this green color (retired anyway!) but it matched the ribbon and the green leaves (plus I have a bunch of it left over).  I stamped the Cardinal on watercolor paper and used Tombows to color him along with my Aqua Brush.  I cut him out with SU's Top Note Die and matted it with Real Red.  I glued down 2 strips of ribbon on either side of the red strip.  Both the green card and the red strip, I ran through an embossing folder.  The sentiment is a digi stamp and I found.

This is my favorite!!  The snowman and the "Building a Snowman" are digis that I purchased from The Cutting Cafe.  I haven't used digi stamps much but I really loved this one!!  I paper pieced his hat and used Flower Soft on the scarf.  The red ribbon is from Stampin' Up.

This is another digital stamp that I found on the internet.  I colored him my Copics.  The pink ribbon is Stampin' Up.  I dipped the pink brad in glitter after putting Towbow Glue on it.

So which is your favorite?
