Another Happy Marriage

Image
Today, I am popping in to show you another card using Our Daily Bread Designs' Happy Marriage Recipe .  This time I decided to go a bit more primitive using paper piercing and soft tones with kraft paper. 

And the set used...

I layered up the image with kraft paper ever so slightly framed by a dark navy card stock.  I nestled the panel on a kraft base.  The DP has a nice aged look to it, so I left it as is except for the paper piercing.  A bit of seam binding and a lovely Prima blossom are nestled down below.  It's super cute!  I love getting cards ready for my stash!  Don't forget to pop back by Monday as Our Daily Bread Designs will have a new month of releases.  And let me just tell ya...  they are darling!  I can't wait for you to see them!  In the meantime, please have a safe and wonderful weekend!  Happy Resurrection Day!  Blessings...

Easter Treat Bags With Recycled Lunch Bags

Image
Happy Monday to ya!  Today I have some super cute treat containers to share.  You can use card stock, designer paper or even recycled grocery bags like me!  You can even stitch the edges for added interest.  (Unfortunately my sewing machine is a little under the weather...  boo hoo...) Instead, I used a strong tape to fasten the edges. 

using Our Daily Bread Designs' Baking Tag Sentiments


I used my scalloped Spellbinder die to cut two layers of recycled lunch bags.  I then stamped my sentiments and adhered the edges with ScorTape.  Make sure to leave a tiny opening to add your goodies (in this case Jelly Beans) and then fasten your opening.  I can visualize a cookie, M&M's ALL sorts of goodies in this cutie...  Hee hee!    Voila!  Instant treat bags!  I can't wait to use up all my DP scraps with this one...  Thanks for stopping by...  Until next time...  Blessings...

WAW72 ~ God's Love ~

Happy Wednesday!  Today's card shows just how much I am longing for spring.  Saturday we had temps near 70 degrees.  Sunday we had 7 inches of heavy wet snow.  And Monday?  Thunderstorms...  sigh...  I've always heard if you don't like the weather in Kentucky, just hang around a minute.  It's bound to change!  And let me just say, my poor little daffodils have been pummeled the last few days but they still poke their cheery faces up at me!  Today I am dreaming in shades of pink...  specifically, cherry blossom pink...  After all, if the daffodils can be so cheery, why not???

ODBD ~ A Happy Marriage ~

Image
Good morning!  Hope all is well with you and yours!  Today, I am sharing a March release from Our Daily Bread Designs  entitled Happy Marriage Recipe.  This little gem is perfect for shower, wedding cards and altered art.  My mind is swimming with the gifts I can make for the brides-to-be on my list.  Marriage takes a great deal of work.  And it definitely takes all sorts of ingredients to make it work!  I've put up with...  ahem...  loved my hubs for almost 10 years!  (Waving wildly at ya honey!!!!)  He knows I am a handful and is oh so gracious and loving with this Type A personality.  He even knows after all this time if I get in a cleaning mood to RUN not walk to the door!  He has learned I have to have the house to myself to be productive!  The last 4 months or so have been particularly trying as I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease early this year.  Even when I wasn't quite myself, John was there to pray, encourage and lend a smile.  It's the little stuff that …

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you are enjoying all the fun 5th anniversary festivities at Our Daily Bread Designs.  Don't forget to stop in Saturday and check out the special anniversary releases!  I promise you will LOVE them!  Kelley and crew have outdone themselves! 
In the meantime, I have a bright card featuring one of ODBD's March releases, Happy Spring.  I also took the opportunity to use the Mojo Monday sketch.  I haven't had much time to play as of late.  An illness has set me back a bit.  But with our Lord's mercy I am able to return.  Thank you Lord! 
So let's hop right in with today's card... 

and the stamp set...

Definitely a brighter pallet than I normally work with...  red, orange, greens and the like...  Inspiration struck when I saw a bright pack of paper on my desk.  Shhhh...  it's even a summer one...  DON'T TELL!  lol.... 
And the sketch....

So what do you think?  Thanks for stopping in.  Until next time...  blessings....

Happy Spring!

Image
OK, maybe I am just a tad early...  but with a few days of unseasonably warm weather in the Bluegrass, I just had to sing!  I so love this time of year.  The grass starts to turn green, trees wake from their slumber and my daffodils are peeking out of the ground.  Even the Saints are shedding...  a SURE sign that spring is around the corner...  lol... Speaking of spring, if you haven't had a chance to check out Our Daily Bread Designs' March collection, you are missing out!  There are two sets this month...  baking sets and spring sets.  And this month Our Daily Bread Designs'  will celebrate their 5th anniversary too!  Look for exciting challenges and all around fun this coming week!  In the meantime, let me show you a fun card using the Happy Spring set.  I stamped the image on kraft paper and colored each of the Pussy Willows with a white pencil.
and a picture of the stamp set... I see robin's egg blue in my future...  until next time...  blessings... Card Recipe Stamps…
