Healing Thoughts

Inside: Healing thoughts and prayers are being sent your way.

I have 2 sisters that come to my craft class at the retirement home. Both of the ladies are in their 90’s (probably average age for the class!) but they show up every month they can. This month one of them couldn’t come to class because she fell and broke her hip so I made this card for her. Wanted her to know that she was missed and we are praying for her.

I used the March Stamp of the Month at {From the heart stamps} called Hamlet PigWit Think Spring! This card is a hybrid card…half computer colored and half with Tombow markers.


1) March Stamp of the Month Challenge at {From the Heart Stamps} – Use the stamp of the month before the 31st and get next months image FREE.

2) Sketch Saturday Challenge #303pick any sketch from #215 to 302! I used sketch #300

Hoppy Easter

When I was trying to come up with a card to make at the retirement home I started with these two. The bottom one I just couldn’t get…I think this is the 5th version of it and I finally like it!  The Easter Bonnet chick I think will say “Happy Easter to my favorite chick”. I really liked it a couple nights ago when I made it but now not so sure. So who knows there might be another version soon!

I do monthly crafts at a retirement home and we made these last year for Easter.  (I forgot to post that I made them)

TP Easter Bunny

I found them on Pinterest 

They are made out of Toilet Paper rolls and paper! You can fill them with candy to give a nice decorative treat to somebody for Easter!


John 14:27


John 14_27

I love playing at Word Art Wednesday but it seems I don’t ever have a lot of time to. But today I got to play. This scripture is on there for free but I ended up buying the whole set (Peace and Rest Scripture) from Diane’s Daydream Designs.

I used all scraps except for the base card. The colors were inspired by the colors in the word art.


1) Word Art Wednesday Challenge #122 – Anything Goes – John 14:27 featured word art

2) MOJO Monday #336 – use the sketch provided as inspiration. I had to turn my flower as it wouldn’t fit on the right.

His Name is….


His Name Is

Inside: He is Risen! Happy Easter!

Last month the technique challenge over at the Feb Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com was to create your own background with stamps. Well I don’t own a lot of “real” stamps because I’m not good with them and they scare me! So I asked if it could be done digitally and she said yes. I DID NOT create this image (His Name is) as Laurie at Doodle Pantry did so all I had to do was print it out. So I kind of cheated!! I didn’t get it done last month but was inspired to make this card with that challenge in mind.

I was thinking about making this an Easter card by putting “He has Risen! Happy Easter” inside. What do you think? I’m thinking the image could work for that but might have to make it brighter…the black might be to dark for Easter…what do you think?

Alright 4 flowers down….1,000 more to go before I make a dent in the flower collection! All scraps used! Oh I have lots of stuff I need to use. I need to retire so I have time to use it all!! Sounds good to me….to bad life gets in the way!


1) Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Challenge #8 – Use the sketch provided as inspiration. The original sketch had the image and piece behind it as a square. I did mine as a rectangle so it looks a little different but you should still see the sketch.

2) Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge #44 – Anything Goes. If you use a Doodle Pantry Image then you will get the Stamp of the Month FREE!!

3) Word Art Wednesday Challenge #122 – Anything Goes that is uplifting

A bouquet of clovers just for you!


Shamrock Bouquet

Today I’m getting to create just to create. I do need a need a card for a secret pal but any St. Patrick’s Day card could work for that. I found this wonderful image, Shamrock Digital Stamp, at Waltzingmouse and it is FREE! My husband colored it in photoshop for me. I told him not to work about making it fancy with shadows and shading but I still think it looks great. I bought this paper just for this card….I was hoping to have a card class before March 17th but that didn’t happen. I used Sweet Sunday Sketch #209 for my inspiration.

Okay I didn’t even know Disney had a new character until one of the ladies at the Doctor’s Office asked for a Doc McStuffins Birthday Card for her 4 year old daughter. Well I found this picture on the internet and cut Lambie out so I wouldn’t have the background. I used Stella Says Sketch #204 as my inspiration.
