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.


Images: designed by my husband

Cardstock: Bazzill (pinata), orange scraps

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


Image: Morning Devotions by True 😀

Cardstock: Bazzill

Patterned Paper: My Mind’s Eye (Rosy “love” blossoms paper)

Inks: pre-colored digital image printed on canon inkjet printer

Accents/Tools: Lasting Impressions brads, fiber

Something New…..going on at Clearly Digi Stamps



Something New is definitely going on at Clearly Digi Stamps. Not only is that our theme this month BUT we have a NEW prize for participating in the blog hop! Get this….all you do is leave comments on each members blog and then the Designer gets to pick a winner from their blog! The winner from each blog gets the digital stamp that the designer used! So that means with 8 Designers in this hop there will be 8 different winners!! How awesome is that?!! So leave me a comment (and your email) and you will have a chance to win the digital stamp I used…..Cheeps.

If you are just joining us head on over and start at the beginning on Lori’s Blog. If you just came from Jen’s Blog – Creating in Faith, Hope and Love you are in the right spot.

So you want to see my Something New Card?…..

Hanging by a twig (both)

Well, it is not a new stamp but it’s NEW to me because I haven’t been able to play with this digital stamp yet. Lisa Lara designed Cheeps and it was released in March 2012 at Clearly Digi Stamps. I can’t believe it has almost been out a YEAR and I’m just now getting to play with it. Not because I didn’t want to play with it just haven’t had time. So I’m glad Linda made the challenge this month to be SOMETHING NEW – this includes a digi stamp set that is new to you (meaning you’ve never used it), a new technique, a new color combo, new embellies you got for Christmas…anything that is NEW to you.

I picked this image because I thought it would make a good “Get Well” card for someone that had surgery. I’m so lucky to have a friend that is awesome at coming up with sentiments. I told her what my plans were for the card and she came up with the front and inside sentiment. Isn’t she awesome!! Thanks Stephanie!! So now it will go to a lady at church that had shoulder surgery.

Your next stop on the blog is Vicki – HeARTful Stamper.  Make sure to leave comments on each blog for a chance to win the image that Designer used!
