Swept up Garage

Inside:
So I swept the garage so the Easter Bunny could bring you a new tool!

While my husband was gone last week I decided to clean out the garage as a surprise for him. I wanted to make him a card to sit on his bench so he would get it when he walked into the garage. So I had ideals but when Karen posted the April Inspirational Card Challenge – bonus category – Clean… the cleaning images at Imagine That Digital Stamps came to mind. I told my girlfriend what my thoughts were for the saying and she put it together and made it sound good. He not only liked the garage but he said he also liked the card!

I used Tuesday Morning Sketches #397 as my inspiration (posted to late to enter the challenge!)

So while I was getting ideals I saw some funny house cleaning sayings so I decided to use the rest of my scraps and make some funny cards with this design. See attached cards.

1) April Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – bonus – clean. This is what I thought of when I saw the word “clean”.

Eaten by a Bear?

Eaten by Bears

So a friend of mine has been having some trying times since her 3rd child came along. During the holidays if it could go wrong it did. She was laid on my heart so I decided to send her a card of encouragement because parenthood can be trying! I found this saying on the internet and thought it was hilarious and so her!!
At the end of the day…
Have any of your Children been eaten by a bear?
No.
See, you’re a good mom.

So I went looking for bear images. I found “Happy Stanley” at Beccy’s Place. His expression was perfect but he had a shirt collar and tie on so I asked Beccy for permission to have my husband remove the shirt and tie. She gave us permission and my wonderful husband made Stanley plain!! The grin is perfect for the saying and just makes me smile each time I see it!!
It took a week to get there…I couldn’t believe it! She received it Friday and said it was perfect timing as she was needing encouragement that day!! God is always perfect in his timing!

I used Atlantic Hearts Sketch #196 that I had saved so this card fits the March Card Inspiration Challenge – Favorites Category. It also fits Beccy’s Place March Challenge – make a card using any image of hers (even free ones) for a chance to win free digital stamps.

SUPPLIES:
Digital Image: Happy Stanley @ Beccy’s Place
Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned Paper: My Mind’s Eye (Follow your Heart “Be Amazing”)

Birdbrain Get Well

Inside: It’s time to rest and take it easy.

This is for the owner of From the Heart Stamps. On Aug 11th we were notified by her team that Faith (owner) was in the hospital and to pray for her if we could. Aug 13th her dad updated us to let us know they found a brain tumor just bigger than a golf ball size and they were going to operate. She is now at home recovering from the surgery and starting treatments for cancer. This woman is amazing and even though I have never met her she has touched my life with her sweet spirit, kind heart and love for God. Her dad was so kind to give us an address we could send happy mail of encouragement to. So I went looking through her images that I own (because her store is temporarily on hold) and came across this one. She does not sell pre-colored digis but she had a special one time so I got the pre-colored one of this!! When I saw it I came up with the sentiment. I also used a sketch from their challenge blog – I {heart} sketches #69. I was having a hard time trying to find a ribbon to go across like what was in the sketch. So I pulled out my box of odds and ends ribbons and old old fibers (remember those!!). I found this perfect colored fiber trim that was just perfect…I love those happy finds!!

CHALLENGES:
