Oh Happy Day

This card was created for my sorority sister's husband who was hospitalized.  We are praying for 100% Full Recovery.  Their church is having a Youth & Young Adult conference this week and I know his heart is there, but I pray that his mind is on healing and his health restored. Ministers are often pulled in many directions.  I pray this card finds his spirits filled with joy on his way back to re-newness of life.

Random Act of Kindness

This canvas is one of the gifts I gave my partner at Scraps of Color RAK Swap.  The rules were to surprise them with a homemade gift and goodies from their profile  My gift was a canvas with her favorite colors green and black. I kind of got carried away with the green.  Ometa didn't ask for much on her list, however, she is a Huge Tim Holtz fan and is enjoying his on-line classes.    I just had to use this 'Off to Crop' Crafty Sister digital image by Robert Jackson.  It's so much like her photo.  It was a pleasure chatting with her and guess what?  She and I work in the same field!  How cool is that?!!  

This is the RAK I sent her wrapped in some really cool paper from Michael's.  I'm trying to keep it in her green and black theme.  Her card below was placed in a green envelope and addressed  on top of the box.

This is the card using the same digital image with a polka dot top that I posted last month.

Here's her box of goodies!!!  I even included a couple of Tim Holtz Christmas stamps.  Now that's Christmas in July!  It was SO much fun planning, shopping and filling her box.  Although I got some Orville Redenbacher popcorn, I just had to get the The Skinny Pop popcorn since it's packaging is green and back AND it's delicious!  Yes popcorn is her favorite snack.

God Bless

Inspired by several challenges I created this card using Our Daily Bread Designs stamp I received from Archivers before they closed.  It's my first time using it. My next door neighbors have sold their home and moving.  They are a sweet couple. I wish them the very best and will be placing it in their mailbox.

Sew Nice

You never know who loves your work.  On Administrative Assistant Day, I gave our receptionist a card with a few sweeties in a bag.  She just got back from sick leave and asked me to make 20 thank you cards for her.  I'm sharing a set of five from Hero Arts stamp set So Artsy.  Yes I pulled the stamps out.  Didn't know how to charge her, because I've never received an order this large.  I told her to just bless me.

Red White and Blue

I can't believe it's almost half of the year.  Since July 4th is right around the corner I wanted to create a Red White and Blue card.  I have several sorority sisters who serve and have served in the military.  One of them will be the receiver.  This card was inspired by Viva La Verve card sketch and Word Art Wednesday free word art.  The digital is by Robert Jackson. He has lots of military digitals and you can find them here.

Creative Type of Girl

Getting my Random Acts of Kindness box prepared for my swap partner at Scraps of Color.  We are suppose to make a handmade gift and box minimum cost of $20 in scrapbook goodies on their wish list.  She is making tags with Tim Holtz products.  This is TH pages from the Retro Grunge paper stash and I had a blast at Michael's purchasing from his product line.  Her favorite colors are green and black.  This digital is by Robert Jackson, our greatest fan at SOC!  The stamped sentiment was from the front rack at Michael's a while back.    I thought it was the perfect image and sentiment for the RAK Swap.  Now to finish the homemade gift.  I'll be sure to post it after she receives her box.

Mist and Glitter

Just having a little fun this morning wide awake since 3:30am.  I wanted to play in my craft room.  With this cute little digital from A Day For Daisy,  their challenge is to add glitter.  I used Pink Paislee Coconut Pixee Stix.  Stickles was used for the butterflies and a little in the background.  A splash of pink shimmer by Recollections was also applied.  I joined in with Chocolate Coffee Cards Girls of Summer #112 challenge and Word Art Wednesday week 236-237 Family/Friendly ATG .  This card is for my little four year old cousin, who just finished her recital.
