It turned into a beautiful day!!!I

Deep in prayer
Stampin' Sisters in Christ have a prayer or peace project challenge.
I used Basic Grey Granola on ALL my cards today.

The scripture they witnessed today at Stampin' Sisters is:

Philippians 4:4-7 "Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Shake your tail feather over at the Order of the Opus Gluei
Their challenge this week is For the Birds...
The 3 birds on the wire here are from Quickutz.

This card was made using a sketch at His Holy Name... Our Daily Bread challenge #9
has the theme of texture this week. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for my texture and all the layers are pretty textural as well (I think).
52 Card Pickup has a BE theme this week...
The writings on this blog are very inspirational and worth a look at, I encourage you to go take a peek.
And in going with the challenge's story on this blog... I want to be a designer, so I am going back to school to do just that. My niece and I will start college at the same time, her for the first time, and me... for the 2nd. How exciting for us both.

A sketch inspired this card as well.
Crafts for Eternity has this card sketch and a few additions. Use a tag (the Lisa's Altered Art image is hanging out on a tag)... and some foil. That doily is nice, shiny silver foil.
The sentiments on vellum throughout all of the cards today are from Creative Memories, and the text paper on this card is also from them.
And... at Tellen's Place this week the challenge is to make a project "ALL ABOUT ME"... I think this sentiment explains that. And I love to make cards, which today, I definitely did. And this gorgeous Tellen's image has one of my favorite pastimes... drinking coffee (and even better, drinking it with a friend).

Have a blessed week everyone!


  1. Your cards are ALL amazing. I love the brown/blue theme you have going right now. Your bird card is perfect for Opus Gluei. Thank you so much for playing with us. I just love your creations. You are very imaginative and it translates so well into your cards.

  2. Wow, you've really been busy! I especially love the birds on the wire, but they're all lovely!

  3. I love the Tellen's image that used and the texture that you put behind it. Thanks for joining us at Tellen's Place.

  4. You must have been stuck to your chair... so many things accomplished in one day!! Go girl. One or two of these would be perfect for a dear friend of mine, wish I had some of the sentiments you used (but I guess I could transcribe them. Thanks for the inspiration)... and I really like the birds on the wire.

  5. I love these cards, of course I'm partial to your Opus Gluei submittal but I really do enjoy the others as well. I like the power of the Scriptures you're using, very inspiring and uplifting and we all need that in the good times and the trying times.

    I don't have the BG Granola line but you're making me consider it now! (enabler, mutter mutter mutter, lol)
