Great Impressions: Teacher Appreciation Gift

Hi, friends!  It's time for another post using stamps from the Great Impressions online store!  Today I have a gift idea for our "Teacher Appreciation Gifts" week!  Come and take a peek!

Here's my card~

Products used: E767 Bubble Over

I decided to make a gift that could go along with this super fun sentiment, and so body wash just seemed to fit the bill!  Who doesn't like some yummy smelling body products?!  What do you think?


Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at this card!  Hop over to the Great Impressions blog for more inspiration and come play along with our monthly challenge, too!  If you use stamps from Great Impressions, you'll be able to link up your creation in our Customer Gallery, too!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all!

DDD: A Simple Scene + Wednesday Wisdom

Hi, friends!  It's Wednesday, and so that means it's time for me to post a creation using fabulous digi goodness from the Daydream Design's store!  This week I've got a card that is just a simple scene.  No sentiment, just a peaceful little trailer sitting on the grass!

Here's my card~

Products used: Bouquet of Daisies (polka dot paper), Nest To Sky Papers (cloud paper), On The Move Color Set

My "Wednesday Wisdom" this week is to just be still sometimes.  There are times when you don't need a reason to just be.  Rest is imperative to us and to our well being.  In fact, it's a commandment!

"Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the Lord: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death." -Exodus 31:16

Rest is so important that the Lord has commanded us to do so every seven days.  In our fast paced world, we sometimes forget that rest is necessary for us to be able to function correctly.  We need sleep, good food, relaxation to optimize our potential.  How wonderful is it to know that our Father in Heaven knows how important it is, too?  He is surely wise to tell us to take time out!  So, please do that today!  Go and rest and relax in the knowledge of our Lord's love!

Thanks for stopping by today to take a peek at my creation!  I hope you like it and I hope you go grab these digi elements from the Daydream Design's Store!  HUGS and happy {digi} stamping to you all!

Welcome to another new challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown!  This week we're asking you to use glitter, bling, and all other things shiny on your holiday creations!  I've used some glitter and rhinestones to make a small-ish sparkly creation!

I've used an image and sentiment from Doodle Pantry, .rhinestones by Kaiser Kraft, Stickles by Ranger, red glitter glue by Darice, and cardstock by Stampin' Up!.

This is my last post for 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and I want to say thank you to the gals on this wonderful team!  I'll miss getting to create you all with each week.

Great Impressions: Bamboo Wishes

Hi, friends!  It's time for another post using stamps from the Great Impressions online store!  Today I have a card with a CAS feel and a powerful message.  Just a few small accents and a bright color scheme found here!  Take a look!


Here's my card~


Did you notice the "shading" on the bamboo?  I used two colors of green ink to create this fun effect!  This card is actually a motivational speech for myself.  We all need this reminder--NEVER GIVE UP.  It's very easy to do and so anytime we can remind ourselves and those around us to keep going, we should.

Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at this card!  Hop over to the Great Impressions blog for more inspiration and come play along with our monthly challenge, too!  If you use stamps from Great Impressions, you'll be able to link up your creation in our Customer Gallery, too!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all!

DDD: Fun Flag + Wednesday Wisdom

Hi, friends!  It's Wednesday, and so that means it's time for me to post a creation using fabulous digi goodness from the Daydream Design's store!  This week I've got a card using a fun sentiment and some other digi papers!

Here's my card~


I've been talking this month about journeying through life here on my Wednesday Wisdom posts.  This week's card is a reminder to allow for the unexpected and to embrace it when it comes!  The Lord has things prepared for us that are FAR better than anything we could plan for ourselves!  Embrace His perfect plan for you.  Abandon your imperfect plan.

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." -Jeremiah 29:11

The Lord knows what is best.  Trust Him.  His love will be able to carry you through everything and lift you when you fall.  He sees the big picture, the whole tapestry, the completed puzzle, whichever comparison is your cup of tea.  He loves you!  Never forget that!

Thanks for stopping by today to take a peek at my creation!  I hope you like it and I hope you go grab these digi elements from the Daydream Design's Store!  HUGS and happy {digi} stamping to you all!

You Inspire Me!

Hi, friends!  Whew!  First day of school was a bit crazy.  It started with an interesting doctors appointment that we won't get into and ended in a nap.  In between, I did get a lot of school work done.  Tomorrow is the first day I actually have to be IN class, so there's that.  Oh, and I made some time for a little crafty therapy!  Come and take a look!

Here's my creation~

A close up of the stamped image~
Sorry it's so dark--I couldn't show the shine when I tried
to make the white cardstock white in the photo...

For these fabulous challenges~

(Middle vertical row.)





I've used the I Love You Because and Delicate Doilies II stamp sets from Inspired By Stamping, baker's twine from my stash, Stickles in Diamond and Liquid Pearls in Silver Pearl by Ranger, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and all other supplies are from Stampin' Up!.

This card was made for a very special friend going through a very difficult time.  I didn't want it to be your ordinary "get well" or "thinking of you" card because she is very extraordinary!  I think she'll like it...I hope so, at least!

That's all for now!  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at my creation!  I hope you are inspired to create something for these fabulous challenges!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all!

Doodle Pantry: How've You Bean?

Okay, admit it.  You love a good pun!  ME TOO!  Puns are something that I totally fall for and adore...even little kids can understand them, so I feel they're the best humor.  Luckily for me, I get to design with some fabulous digis from Doodle Pantry that include some FABULOUS puns!  Come see my most recent punny creation...

Here's my card~

Products used: Everyday Jargon (image & sentiment), Cute Cake (paper)

HA!  How've you "bean"?  Get it?! ;)  This would be a really fun card to take to a friend with some yummy jelly beans as a treat to say hi!  You could even send the gift in the mail along with this card.  The options are endless!  I love it!

Thanks for stopping by today to see how my crafting has "bean" going!  I hope you have some fun creating today!  HUGS and happy {digi} stamping!
