Word Art Wednesday #252-253


Good morning crafty friends! I sure hope all is going well with y'alls weeks! 
Today I am excited to share that I will be a Guest Designer for this
month at Word Art Wednesday! It has been one of my favorite challenges for
quite some time. I love each weeks blog post and the encouragement
that each scripture gives. This weeks scripture is Proverbs 8:17.

Here is my card using the scripture image:



Enabler's List:

Mojo Monday #465


Good afternoon crafty friends! I hope y'all are having a great weekend! Well of y'all
haven't noticed, I've been MIA for a few weeks. We have gotten mostly moved
into our new house. I had been waiting to organize my new craftroom since there was
so much to do in the rest of the house that I didn't want to do it yet because then
I'd want to craft and then I'd feel guilty for not doing something more productive...
Well most of the house is about as done as it's going to get for the time being so I figured
it was time to start on my space! I put it together in two evenings after Elias went
down for the night. It's even bigger than I realized it was. I have so much open floor space
that I have no idea what to do with.. The room is at least 13x13, maybe 14x14.
It's actually the formal dining but this house has a very large and long living room that
has the perfect place for an 8 person dining table in it in front of a large window.



I was able to sit down and make a card to break in my new room while Elias was
taking a nap. I followed the current sketch from Mojo Monday. I am also entering this
 card into the current challenges over at Word Art Wednesday (anything goes), 
Really Reasonable Ribbon (things with wings and ribbon),
  Creative Knockouts (winged wonders), and Fab N Funky (inspired by nature).



Enabler's List:

Paper: BoBunny - Sweet Life
Stamps: Verve - Potter's Clay and Petals and Wings
Ink: CTMH - outdoor denim
Die: Verve - Leafy Sprigs
Misc: CTMH - gold sequins, RRR - aqua grosgrain ribbon

focus is designer's choice, so you might just sneak a peek at a whole bunch of must-haves!

For this first card I used a verse from Scripture Medley 4 with my CTMH paper and ink and due cut the stars using Verve's Starry die.

For my second card I used a wonderful quote from the Kindness Matters stamp set. I used a cute paper pack from Paper Studio and made a double loop black grosgrain bow with my Zutter bow-it-all.

For my final card I used a wonderful verse from the Potter's Clay stamp set as well as the flower from that set and coordinating Pottery die set. I embossed my flowers in gold and watercolored them with my CTMH ink. I used a retired CTMH paper for this card.

Verve August Release Spotlight Hop - Day 3


Welcome back to Day 3 of our Anni-VERVE-sary August Release Spotlight Hop!

Verve Stamps May 2016 Spotlight Hops

The Verve Divas and we special guests are back for another day of spotlighting
our new release! Everything previewed this week will be available to order 
in the Verve online store on Friday, August 26. Today we're sharing our first 
projects featuring the Potter's Clay stamp set and coordinating, Pottery Die Set.



If you hopped over here from Marisa's blog, then your in the right place!


For my card I followed the August week 1 sketch from Viva la Verve. First I stamped
one of the pots and one of the sprigs on my piece of cardstock to be the background, then after it was good and dry, I stamped one of the beautiful sentiments from the Potter's Clay stamp set over top. I really like the way that it turned out!
