Our Daily Bread.."I Am With You Always"...MOJOMARIA turns 100

Love this quote from the new Jesus set at ODBD. I knew when I picked up this cool paper from K & Co. (Tim Coffey, Fall mat pad) that I would use this verse! I made this card for the MOJO MARIA , MOJO Monday blogspot challenge. The sketch was nice and easy yet gorgeous! I used my new SU colors and ink and a new MS border punch. TFL! Have a great Friday and weekend! :)

Another quick one from Paula Best..

Well, there is just something about Paula Best that I am TOTALLY crazy about! I love everyone of her stamps..they are just plain COOL. Here is another one I picked up at a show in Michigan. The dp is old so I dont remember the name. I colored with Copics and found these cute little stick pins in Michaels a while back in a vintage section. You can click on the pic to see it better. TFL!

Here's my card for the challenge 8-15 with Susana's Custom Art & Design as a sponsor!! This is from the hearts and hugs collection! The challenge is to use "reds, pinks and or hearts"!! This is to represent Susanna's store! I colored my little fairy girl with R-27, R29 and RV21, RV06 (wings and flower). Then I used a ton of other Copics for the mushrooms, grass and etc! I use so many when I am in the "zone" I forget to write them all down! The dp is the new June Bug paper from BG. It also just happens to be our sponsor's birthday!!!

Witches Shoes..A Tara Reed design for Janlynn Stamps

Just in time for Fall I got this cute stamp from Janlynn stamps! How cute are these "Witches shoes"?? ha ha! Love em! I used some dp from the BG Ambrosia pad and my cuttlebug. Then I dusted off my SU markers and colored along with some Copics. Got to use my new MS punches ( loops and the branch) and the sentiment is an old stamp I found at my lcc. I found this cat face button in JoAnn's and couldnt resist putting it on this card! TFL!

With birthdays come wisdom and Jesus..

These are 2 new cards I made with the 2 new release stamp sets for August over at ODBD. The first set called Happy Birthday has this great verse that I think makes a really NICE birthday card to give to someone. I used my Memory Box Butterfield dp that I snatched up at the ODBD store and a SB Lattice die. Then I used my Jesus set to make something really different. Kelley brought home from CHA some dp samples of Graphic 45 she had left after attending a class and she gave them to me along with a sheet of tags. Here they are! :) Wish the pic was a little better and you could see the little metal chip on the Jesus pic says Believe. This verse from the Jesus set is very comforting. TFL I am off again this weekend to work at a stamp show in Cinci OH along with a few members of the ODBD crew! Kelley and "Mr. Kelley" (to keep us laughing) and the sweetie Angella Should be fun! Have a GREAT weekend!
