You're So Sweet

It's nothing like popsicles in the Summer Time.  I wanted to play around with a few challenges and used Tuesday Morning Sketches to create this card.  The paper is from my RAK partner Ometa at Scraps of Color now Embrace Your Art.  It's a Love Nicole Tonal Patterns paper pad.

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.
