Not the best picture ~ sorry that I forgot to take this on a nicer backdrop ~ but everything is packaged and ready for delivery ~ here's what my delivery basket looks like ~

Very Vintage

I've been busy this week putting a card order together and having so much fun doing so.  My studio is   one of my Happy Places!!! and when it's beautiful out ~ well, I just move my work outside, which I what I did today.  It was such a beautiful day and to NOT be in the basement (although I love my creative corner) ~  here is a picture that I took as I was sitting outside, listening to the birds as they welcomed me outside! 


Here is my completed 3x3 card ~ and the picture doesn't do it ANY justice at all ~ the flowers just sparkle with Wink of Stella all over them ~ 


Just a quick little post for you to enjoy ~ Have a blessed day ~

Magnolia Anyone????

I am TOTALLY Obsessed the with Magnolia line ~ whether it's the Embossing Folder, the Design Paper, the Memories & More Pack or the stamps sets! and yes, Stamp Sets, you can order the Good Morning Magnolia or the Magnolia Blooms stamp set in the small catalogue seen here!  Here are a few cards that I created this morning in my studio and I found myself smiling the entire time!



I fussy cut some of the blossoms from my Design Paper and using Dimensionals I adhered it to the frame cut from the Heirloom Embossing Folder and Die Cut! I also used the Wink of Stella and painted each of the blooms ~ Oh how I wish you could see the sparkle, these pictures don't do any justice to the actual cards!

God is my Healer

Image result for psalm 121

Today is not about a card ~ it is about an ask ~ I'd like to share with you what I shared with my amazing gals that come to class and we get to create together, my girls are the best and I love each and every one of them ~ so here is what I shared with them in early March 

~ " girls, before we get started tonight I'd like to share something with you all...I've been diagnosed with breast cancer (gasp!!!!) girls, wait!!! I'm doing great, I'm strong in body mind and soul and I plan on remaining that way! If you've known me for many years, you'll know that I'm a person of great faith, if you're familiar with the story of David and Goliath, David was a little Shepard boy with a sling and a stone and Goliath was a giant ~ well, I'm looking at my giant and you're going down Goliath, you're going down.  It also says in the Bible in Joshua 1:9, do not be afraid or terrified because of them, so I want you all to take the word them and replace it with whatever you're dealing with in your own personal life, so for me I read, do not be afraid or terrified because of breast cancer Denise, for the Lord your God will go before you and He will never leave you or forsake you.  Now I have three asks of you all, 1. if you're a praying person I would love for you to pray for me, 2. if you're not a praying person, what a beautiful time for you to get to know the Creator of the heavens & the earth, the Creator of you, the Creator of me and He doesn't make ANY mistakes, the 3rd ask I have is, I don't want to hear your horror stories, we all know someone and I don't want to be rude, but I'm in great place and I plan on remaining there, so, my 3 asks, pray, pray and no thank you!!!  Now....who wants to make a card!!!  And so we did!!!

and now you, my dear reader of this blog post ~ may I ask you to also pray for me ... here is the update as of this morning .... Another update on my journey ... Went to see the Oncologist today ~ so the malignant carcinoma (lump in my left breast) is a variety that is quick spreading and my ER, PR & Her2 levels all came back negative, which means that this can also be quick spreading 😝 ~ so the oncologist did suggest chemo, but also said that this type of cancer that they found is rare and chemo has not shown that it would be effective, but the option to do chemo is totally up to me.  I said, no thanks....Triple-negative breast cancer is cancer that tests negative for estrogen receptors, progesterone receptors, and excess HER2 protein.
These results mean the growth of the cancer is not fueled by the hormones estrogen and progesterone, or by the HER2 protein. So, triple-negative breast cancer does not respond to hormonal therapy medicines or medicines that target HER2 protein receptors….

so my next wait is for an appointment with the radiologist and that has been set for Wednesday, June 12 ~ and so we wait.  I do walk lock step with my God, that has not, nor will ever change.  God has me in the hollow of His Hands no matter what.  I am strong in body mind & soul ~ I feel great,...and Dean says I look fantastic ...so lets go with that ❤️
thanks SO much for taking the time to read this post and so my 3 asks of you is also, pray, pray and no negative stories please ~ encouragements welcome ~ thank you and have a blessed day xo

STB#160, AHS#306 & PP#431

My card began as a challenge to myself to work with my Aqua Painter. I love this Painter, but I just can't seem to paint as nicely as I'd like .... so it began looking like this....




I used water-colour paper, Aqua Painter and Blender Pen ~ it was okay, but I don't LOVE IT!!!! so then I knew I wanted to create the same thing, but using a different technique ~

 

for the above picture, I ran it through the Big Shot with the EF and then coloured in the images with just the Blender Pen and LOVE IT!!!


 for the above picture, I sponged the Embossing Folder & then I ran it through the Big Shot with the EF and LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!
Give this a try ~ my girls also had a blast at class playing with these different techniques!

What a fabulous Bundle ~ I lOVE everything about it xoxo ~  And after all this beautiful play, my card qualify for these challenges ~ Seize the Birthday #160,  Atlantic Hearts Sketch #306 & Paper Players #431

Thanks for all your hard working in bring these challenges to us all ~ so grab your supplies, get that Mojo happening and join in the fun!!!

Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year Everyone!!!! Hope you had a blessed Christmas and I wish you all the best in the New Year!!!  I'm so excited to be playing along with the sketch at TSOT #389 ~ come and join in on the fun!!! Here's the sketch to follow!


So in the Clean & Simple Challenge, I also found these to play along with ~ CASology 325 & Less is More I haven't done three challenges in such a long time ~ I really enjoyed creating this card, although I do find clean & simple a real challenge....so good for me to be stretched a bit (well, a lot) ... and I was determined to do this...  



~ and now for the card ~ I ran a panel through the Big Shot using the Subtle Embossing Folder using Whisper White ~ Stamped the flower image from Healing Hugs (SU) using Mango Melody and then fussy cut that out! I stamped the leaves from Healing Hugs & Rooted In Nature using Pear Pizzazz and cut that out with the matching dies and my Big Shot!
I'm really pleased with the end result! 


thanks SO much for popping by ~ come and join in the fun too ~ have a blessed day!
