Bearded Iris


Mother strength and dignity

I made this for a guy at work for his mother. She just happens to be a customer of mine so I love making cards for her. One of her favorite flowers is the purple Iris so that is what I used. He picked out this verse for the front of the card. I used sketch #3 of the May Card Sketch Challenge as my inspiration.

1) May Card Sketch Challenge @ – sketch #3 – original sketch Paper Craft Crew card sketch #240.
2) May Inspirational Card Challenge @ – product – foil. The striped paper is foil.

Cards for friends


One of the couples in them marriage group is going to move so the wife can go to Christian college for a year and then one of the ladies is having a hysterectomy on Tuesday so we wanted to make them cards.

We weren’t sure what to do with the hysterectomy card but she is a HUGE Dr. Who fan so in joking around my husband and I mixed Dr. Who and Dr. Seuss together and came up with this card. My husband drew/designed everything so all I did was cut it out and glue it onto a card base.

Inside: After the surgery, we hope you have plenty of time to… Recuperate!


1) Use Your Stuff Challenge #148 – Inspired by Dr. Seuss. I hope this counts since it isn’t something actually from Dr. Seuss but is totally inspired by Dr. Seuss.

New chapter


We’re excited to see the chapters
God’s going to write for your life.

We wanted to do a book theme since this will be a new chapter in their life. This is an older digi by True 😀 at True’s Gift’s from the Heart that is no longer available.


1) Crafts 4 Eternity Challenge #189 – Something Old. That fiber is probably 10 years old. The digital stamp is about 2 years old and the brads I got prior to 2006. The patterned paper is the newest thing and I think it is almost a year old.

2) Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Sketch #24 – I really liked this sketch and love the sponsor this week, Doodle Pantry. I didn’t use of their images but still used the sketch.

3) Word Art Wednesday Challenge #145 – Anything Goes that is uplifting

Job 38:7


Word Art Wednesday’s scripture this week focused was Job 38:7. There were two different word files for FREE but you didn’t have to use them to play along in their Anything Goes challenge. I decided the verse would go perfectly with the angel digital stamp my husband drew for me. I made this card for my friend who loves angels. I didn’t get a Christmas card made for her this year so decided to just send a “hello” card to her just Because! No special holiday needed.

Angels sang


1) Word Art Wednesday Challenge #113 – Anything Goes!

2) Sketch N Stash Challenge #129 – Use the sketch provided as your inspiration. I used the angel instead of the two circles on the right.

3) Twist of Faith Challenge #70 – Anything goes that includes scripture or uplifting sentiment

New stash: my husband just drew the angel last month (Dec 2013).

Old Stash: All patterned paper. The maroon circle paper is probably over 7 years old!
