I’m back to share some simple, small samples from this weekend.  I attended an all day crop and led a fast make and take session.  I wanted something simple and cute, so we made the popular card holders that have been popping up on many blogger sites.














This gorgeous double sided design paper is by K & Co (my favorite), and it sure made putting these little cuties together so quick and easy.  Instead of a gift card each holder was filled with an Inspiration Card.  The stamps are all by Hero Arts

 I only have a moment for a quick post, but look – I found these beautiful shimmery creatures at Michaels this week.  Their wedding section, which I never noticed before, houses some magnificent treasures.  The stamp was in my short stack and the deal was clinched when I flipped through the Memory Box paper I had on my desk and came up with this piece that has three "spotlights" on it.  See…. give me one firm spot….it was meant to be!

    I guess that wedding section at Michael’s needs to be a regular stop for me. The last time I was there I found great treasures!

 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? 

I love the simplicity of this verse; it’s one that rewinds through my mind many times over the course of a week.  The small stamp is another that has a permanent place on my desktop to remind me of the these very words that  bless me so often.  

This card is my monthly entry into the Divine Design Challenge.  Several bloggers have made a commitment to offer a card on the 8th of each month that includes a scripture that has special meaning to them.  You can read more about the challenge on Lori Craig’s blog  here. 


Isn’t this stamp just awesome?  Yep, I’ve had it forever and this is my very first time ever stamping with it.  Wow, the stamp did all the work for me – all I had to do was to color in some of the tulip heads with burgundy chalk.

    I just couldn’t get this card out of my mind, so I tracked the stamp down (googled it) and ordered it! It arrived last night. I am going to try it out tonight, I can’t wait. I also really love the scripture and hope I can find it too but for now I have a few good ones to try.ReplyCancel
