Autumn Blessings

Hello Fellow Crafters,
Using Miss Daisy Stamps - Card Kit/Pumpkin Girl Autumn

I am a Facebook Group Follower of Miss Daisy Stamps and invite you to pop on over and join the Facebook Group HERE. There was a recent Digital Paper Promotion with all kinds of Games and Freebies and I believe if you go to the Miss Daisy Stamps Store you will still find a few Freebies available.  Anywho...I am so excited I won a fabulous Card Kit/Pumpkin Girl Autumn. And I made some special You Are a Blessing treat bags with several of the Design Papers.
Pumpkin Girl Autumn Card Kit

Below is a picture tutorial on how I put together these easy to make 4"x5" treat bags made with these lovely We Are 3 Digital papers.


4" x 5" size Treat bags

Once I made the treat bags from one of the We Are 3 Digital Design Papers in the Card Kit I also printed and cut as needed elements from the Digital Pumpkin Girl Autumn Card Kit for my treat bag design. The lovely colorful Autumn Blessings Sentiment is a Freebie in the Miss Daisy Stamps Store. The beautifully precolored Autumn Wagon Digital image in the medallion was merged in and is available as a pgn.file.

I hope you enjoyed and understood my picture tutorial on "How to make these 4" by 5" treat bags" .

Until next time. Enjoy life's smaller moments.

Tag You're It!

Hello Fellow Crafters,



Friendly Reminder Design Team Post for you to pop on over to:
         My Besties 3D and More...September Challenge
       THEME: Anything Goes with a My Besties Image


Today I am excited to share a fun tag featuring a My Besties Designs /Sherri Baldy pre-colored Oct Printable  4 image you can find it in the My Besties Shop along with several other pre-colored digital images that are fun and fabulous. 
Here is the backside of my tag.
I had so much fun making this tag. Crafting is always a sweet pleasure for me. I seem to go into another world where there is no hate...no pain...no sadness. I can just allow God to bless my thoughts and hands as his loving-kindness pours out of my spirit and soul on to paper. I have been having a really hard and painful time physically the past month and a half. My body seems to be rebelling and not cooperating on some new things I am wanting to do with my Mom who has moved in with me but I am feeling so blessed to have her with me. I know in time my body will teach me to slow down and take in slower and enjoy my time with her and create at a slower pace.

Through it all I know...that I know God is with me and encourages and fills my heart with his love and joy.

Until next time...God loves You where you are...as you are.

Fun Coloring My Besties Zen Art Digital Image



Featuring - My Besties Digital Zen Art Image 881

Big Texas Hello Fellow Crafters,

My Besties Digital ZenArt Image881




Today I am sharing my fun coloring with Prismacolor Premium and Prismacolor Verithin pencils of this My Besties Digital Zen Art Image 881.   I would also like to invite you to the My Besties 3D and More Monthly Challenge for September. THEME: Anything Goes with a My Besties image.



My Besties digital image 708


She also comes without the Zentangle features HERE. I think she is so adorable and can be used on a project as a Get Well, Best Wishes, Happy Birthday, Thinking of You or even with a Just Because Sentiment. 








Today I am using the Digital My Besties  Zen Art Image 881 for a thinking of you card to give a friend.  I am so glad we can each create our cards using our own creative ways...so don't be afraid to different in your use of colors/design.  Share your heart on your projects and have learned alot as I Blog Hop visiting other Crafters while visiting Challenge Blogs. 
+++++++
God has blessed me in so many ways and one is having his arms always open to me...pouring his loving-kindness, grace and mercies into my heart and life.

Sometimes it is hard for me to to share of myself and my life with others...I got so used to be rejected and ignored when I wanted to share something that sadly I have learned to shut down and not share. I decided that I am going to be sharing or you could say be more identifying of self on my Blog when sharing my Projects.

I must have been in the wrong crowds for to long...Have you ever come to see someone and start conversations and they ask how are you? but don't really want to hear?  Well, I am NOT one of those. I really want to know how you are and want to be a praying friend you know is there with her Heavenly Father God and Son, Jesus Christ wanting all good things for you and stand in faith and trust through God's Holy Word with you. So if you want to leave a comment that I can believe in prayer with and for you...let's do it and see God do his work. My email is also on the side bar or you can join me on Facebook.

Until next time...May God Bless You with Health, Joy and Peace.

Autumn Delight...with Miss Daisy Stamps


 Big Texas Hello My Fellow Crafters,

I have not made a post in a good three weeks. I had a sudden delightful yet stressful physically change happen at home. I have my Mom who is 79 move in with me so my attentions have temporarily changed. I am happy...it is just a challenge to get things in new working order and settled for both of us. I do have to share ...it is draining physically with my mobility issues so it is taking away from my crafting time. Don't get me wrong I am happy to have her companionship. We are being blessed...my Lord Jesus Christ is pouring a joy and laughter in us through the hustle of getting things settled.

Be Encouraged...




Hello Fellow Crafters,

Today I am sharing words of encouragement that I pray will lift up your heart as I display and designed them on a Circle Easel card featuring We Are 3 Digital Papers. The Dandelion Wishes Paper Collection, the Miss Daisy Paper Collection and one sentiment from a lovely set of 4 Digital-Courage Sentiments by We Are 3 Digital Paper available in Miss Daisy Stamps.  






I made my Circle Shaped easel card to enter Miss Daisy Stamps Facebook Group - August Monthly Challenge with the THEME: Shaped Cards. I invite you to pop on over and join this fun Group. And for those of you who were Followers of StampArt Design by Kathryne this is her as Miss Daisy Stamps. 



I had quite a bit of a challenge as I made this special shaped card not because it was hard to create a design but because my body has been giving me a challenging time of cooperating in giving me shorter periods of physical energy without pain. I was determined to be strong and encouraged as I kept reading this Sentiment/Scripture to get it done giving it my special touches and attention to little details because I wanted whoever I gave it to...to enjoy looking at and feel they were not alone and to be encouraged that they were being thought of and in my prayers.

I did use so many of my fun dies by Spellbinders, Anna Griffin, Memory Box, Joanna Sheen and even a McGill leaf die punch.


I would like to enter my card into the following Challenges.
A Bit More Time... #25 - Anything Goes
Word Art Wednesday #242 &243 - Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments Designs - Use Dies
Craft Your Passion #324 - Anything Goes

I hope you enjoyed your visit and decide to Follow my Blog along with popping over to Miss Daisy Stamps Facebook page and join the fun group for Monthly Challenges and other fun.

Until next time...Happy Crafting. And may Joy, Peace and Health be yours.

Pockets Full of Fun...My Besties Style

Hello Fellow Crafters,

New Month...New Challenge over at My Besties 3D and More...The THEME is always Anything Goes with a My Besties image and I love to share when I say "and More" that there is such a fun assortment of image styles you can play with. For instance: 3D Decoupage SheetsPre-colored PrintablesDigital imagesRubber Stamps and More. I invite you to visit the My Besties Shop  or Sherri Baldy's Etsy Store to see what Sherri Baldy Designs has for you to have fun with on your next project. I just happen to LOVE designing my projects with the 3D Decoupage Sheets or Printables.
Today I will be sharing two Pocket Cards and a Picture Tutorial on how to get started. I think they have a fun way of being reused as envelopes to put your special notes in.
Using Floer Power Design Paper Pack  And 3D Decoupage Digital Image "Sweet Mary Lou"

On this Pocket Card I am using My Besties "Spot of Tea" 6x6, 8 Pack Printable Design Papers along with the Printable June 2 or you can always choose to buy the Digital Image170/Mad Hatter  to color on your own,


Here is how I start my Pocket Card foundation and then tweak to how I want to fancy up the style.
 All you need is:
  • ScoreBoard
  • 6 x 6 sheet of paper(with a design of your choice---this will be the back of pocket card)
  • 5 x 5 1/2  sheet with your Design choices--this will be the front of your card
  • Scissors to cut the corners off ,  Oval or Circle Die or punch tor easy access for insert card--if you want one. As you see on my two Pocket Cards - one has one and the other does not.
  • Insert will be 4 3/4 x 5 1/2
                                           

This is where you can decide if you want to give your front and back top Pocket Letter fancy Edges or embossing effects with your current  Embossing Folders, Edge Dies and Punches BEFORE you glue together.

I hope you enjoyed your visit...Until next time...Bountiful Blessings of good health, joy and happiness be yours

Today I will be sharing with you two fun Pocket Card styles and a Picture Tutorial on how to get started. On my first Pocket Card I chose to use my Anna Griffin April Garden Border Embossing Folder with Edge Die and the Garden Rose Die. I have so many lovely embossing folders and need to use them more often. 
My beautiful Design Paper is from Sherri Baldy's/My Besties Design Papers which you can check out HERE. I love ALL of Sherri Baldy's Design Paper Packs and these particular sheets are from PRINTABLE - Pink Christmas Coco Pack of 9 sheets...they are all gorgeous and as you can see you can use some of them for any occasion.

On this Pocket card I am featuring the Printable Precolored image from the Besties Flower Power Mega Kit. My Besties Shop Store and check out all the goodies to play with.
