Young Women’s General Conference

Tonight I watched the Young Women’s General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints online. Even though it’s geared for the young women in the church aged 12-18, this older woman got a lot out of it… the theme was how to stand strong amidst the turmoil and temptation in the world. The talks were all excellent; something that Elaine S. Dalton said, about what God sees in each of us, inspired me to make this little card tonight.

I’ve used a digital stamp from Squigglefly, called “Princess Mia” and colored it in with my Copics. My paper is from DCWV, and I’ve used some Prima Flowers, buttons and Waxy Flax. I’ve also used the Fiskars Apron Lace punch, as well as my Nestabilities. The font that I used on my sentiment is called Rickles and it’s free from Dafont.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

1 card – 3 challenges! Here is my card for 2 Sketches 4 You, Caardvarks (using lace) and Color Throwdown. Since I don’t have the SU! colors, I tried to match them with my stash. My stamped images are from Verve and CTMH, some vintage ribbon and lace from my stash… well everything is from my stash! The papers are all CTMH. I love this little Sentiment stamp — I think it’s really sweet.
Thanks so much for looking at my card!

Friday Sketchers, #93 – “Just Because”

This is my first entry at Friday Sketchers – here is their sketch this week:

Here is my take on it… I love these rainbow sherbet colors, especially on a gray and dreary day like today!! This is a 5″x5″ card – my stamped image is a digi-stamp from Bee Crafty that I’ve colored in with Copics. I’ve mounted her on a die cut label that I cut out with my nesties and ran through the swiss dots embossing folder on my Cuttlebug. Papers are from CTMH, KI Memories and DCWV. Flower stickers are from K & Co. The “Just Because” sticker is from Stampendous.

Thanks so much for visting my blog today!

Mojo Monday #129 and St. Patty’s Day!

Today I am home sick with Strep Throat – ugh… I think the antibiotics are finally starting to kick in because instead of feeling like someone is holding a hot iron to my throat 24/7, now it just feels like gargling with glass shards – only when I swallow! That’s progress! Anyway, making cards is distracting me from my troubles! I made this card for my Mom since St. Patrick’s day is near and dear to her heart. First, here is the sketch:
On my card, all my papers are from CTMH and I’ve focused on the color Juniper with cream accents and some distressing in Desert Sand. I’ve also used the Apron Lace punch from Fiskars. The antique lace, ribbon, jute, pearls and shamrock button are from my stash. My sentiment has been floating around in my miscellaneous bag for years — it’s from My Mind’s Eye circa 2002, so I’m glad to finally use it. I distressed it a bit with some more desert sand ink. Here is the finished product…
