Hip To Be Square!

  Hello...Happy Friday! I happen to be off today which is not the norm,
so I am ready to do some stamping!

This weeks Sunday Stamps challenge is 
Hip To Be Square.
I have never participated in this blog challenge before,
so I'm glad I found it and can play along.





Here I used the Butterfly Grace stamp set and
Graceful Butterflies die set from Verve. The card stock
and ink are Soft Sky from SU!

My first version of this sketch I did in a Fall theme.
I included below. Stamps, inks and DSP 
from SU!

Thanks for stopping by and checking things out.
Feel free to leave me a hello. I like hearing from you.
I am still working on getting the look I want for my blog
and getting better pics of the cards. 

Be Blessed!

Freshly Made Sketches Challenge

Hi again...this is my first entry in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge!  Although it doesn't feel like fall here in Florida, I'm in the Fall mood with all the warm colors, scents and pumpkin spice everything!

Usually I'm thinking fall colors when using this SU! leaf and framelit set.
       With this card I leaned toward the neutrals. I really like the clean
uncluttered look and feel of this card.


All products used are from Stampin Up!
Including DSP and embellishments.

Thank for stopping by.

The grass withers and the flowers fade,
but the word of our God stands forever.

Isaiah 40:8

So excited for's Card Club night! Love getting together with my sister's in the Lord who are also fellow stampers! We always have good fellowship and good food!

Playing Around...

Hi again. Still playing around with the new Verve release. This time I'm using Bloom Brighter.
 Love it! I really like the pretty font used for the sentiments. I also  purchased the matching die set so no need to fussy cut. ; )

 This design is simple and soft with the flowers and lighter tone inks.

I used the matching die set on this card.  
Navy and crisp white make this card stand out.

Navy, white
 and silver

 Check out this set and the other offerings at:

The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.

Cool Mornings

Good Morning!

After Hurricane Irma passed, we had a few cool mornings here in North Florida. This morning the humidity is back! I am thankful to God Almighty for his mercy and protection through the storm. We didn't sustain any damage, just debris and limbs scattered around the yard. Our power was restored very quickly...thank you CFEC!

With the sudden surprise of cool mornings, I was in the fall mood!  This card has been in the making for about a year! I had purchased something and after I brought it home I thought what a great idea for the front of a card!

Here was my inspiration from a year ago!

I thought the bottle was very pretty especially with the metallic gold. 
I love the warm colors of fall and the scents of fall like pumkin, apple, and cinnamon!
Thanks for stopping in again. See you again soon.

Fear of the LORD leads to life, bringing security
And protection from harm.

Psalms 19:23

Hello...we are very busy making preparations here in Florida for hurricane Irma. We are keeping an eye on the news and all of the updates as they come in. Hurricanes are not anything new in Florida, but they can be so unpredictable. I say be prepared. If the course changes, at least we were ready. Praying she will not even make landfall in the US, but head out into open water and dissipate. That's my prayer anyway. Please pray for Florida and the coastline of the US. Also for the Caribbean islands that took a battering from her.

I wanted to quickly share a card with you that I made for a friend expecting her first baby. She is having a boy and I thought this little guy would make a precious card.

The stamp set and punch are great! A very versatile set. You can create a warm woodland scene or like this card, soft and sweet. Thanks for stopping by...

Stamp set: Foxy Friends - SU!
Punch : Fox builder - SU!
Sentiment: Verve - Little Ones

Now without faith it is impossible to please God, since the one who draws near to him must believe the he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.

Viva la Verve September!

I am so excited to participate in the Viva la Verve September challenge and be able to post it on my new blog! This blog stuff is all new to me. I am working out all the bugs and trying to figure things as I go so please be patient with this amateur. Below is the September sketch by the very talented Julee Tilman of Verve Stamps. Love me some Verve!


I made a card for a friend who needed an unknown sex of the baby card. So I thought I'd combine the occasion subject and this fun September sketch for the card. Here is what I came up with.


I used the brand new Verve stamp and die set called Little Ones. It has very sweet images including a little chick and rattles. But the sentiments are my favorite. Very versatile set.



Thanks for stopping by and checking things out. Hopefully I'll get the hang of this blog thing!
