Good gravy...

Well, I've made so many cards that I don't think I'll get around to blogging about all of them before next week!  So, I have to pick and choose which ones to show you...UGH!  I've got a couple for this post and then hope to do one more post tonight.  We'll see if it happens...

Card one~


For these fabulous challenges~

(THANK YOU--I had these black scraps 
that were screaming to be used!)

This is a sympathy card made for a friend from church who's mother recently passed away.  I wanted something beautiful for her because she deserves it.  This is what I came up with.  A few thoughts for WAW--we show our love for God by serving others.  And what better way to serve others than to bless them with out God given talents?!  I am so grateful for all that He has done in my life and love Him with an imperfect love that I hope will one day be made perfect through Him.

Second card~


For these fabulous challenges~

This isn't as CAS as I really wanted it to be, but I think that it ended up being gorgeous!  I used a dark brown cardstock for my base, stamped the flower images in white and then colored over them with colored pencil--black magic technique!!!  A simple sentiment is the perfect addition to the sumptuous layered and blinged up flower.  How's that for selling it?! ;)

Thanks for stopping by--I LOVE having you here!  Please join in with these fabulous challenges and I will see you again soon!  Happy stamping! :)

Hi Mynnette: I love the diecuts you've used on this. And it's hard to believe you used "scraps" on this - it's just lovely! As always, your cards make me smile. Thanks for sharing with us again at Word Art Wednesday. Have a great week!
Blessings to you,
Karen L
