Good morning friends, my friend asked me to make her a few sympathy cards, seems we never seem to have them on hand when we need them. I made this one using a new technique I saw on Pinterest with a Penny Black Stamps.

Celebrate TODAY!

Morning friends, today I have a card to share that I made for my sisters birthday using one of my favorite sets from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called  Celebrate Today .  Her favorite color is yellow so I found this lovely gingham paper and added a touch of lace.  I stamped on watercolor paper using markers and my spritz bottle, I love how this turned out.  This set comes with some amazing sentiments to make cards for many different occasions!

SCRAPS from my bin!

Hello  friends, today I decided to use papers from my scrap bin.  I promised myself at the beginning of this year to use up all scraps and is just seems that my scrap bin keeps getting bigger and bigger.   I am using Fill Me Up for my card today, love this set from Sweet 'n Sassy stamps.   I did all paper piecing on this card, no coloring!  I think I will buy a $10 Starbucks card and give it to someone in line behind me next time I go. :)  I love this set, it is great for card making or bible journaling.
