Don't Forget the Candy!!

Hello all! Thanks for all the comments on the blog candy so far! I'm so honored to know that I'm actually on some people's *favorites* list and that a lot of you visit daily. That's great!! It makes it so much more fun to know there are people watching!! :) If you missed yesterday's post on the blog candy be sure to sign up! Just click here for the details. Oh - and I did finish the table runner. My daughters' and I can't believe that I'm going to give it away. It turned out so cute!!

My first card today is fairly self-explanatory. I used the CPS Sketch Challenge for the week. Let me just say that I inked the treble clef in Old Olive, but stamped it off twice before stamping it under the words. I didn't want it to be overwhelming.

This card uses one of Angel's sketches. I'm so sad that there won't be any more, since tomorrow is her birthday. Happy Birthday, Angel!!!! I used heat embossing on this card... but I also used my markers and classic ink. How? I stamped on Glossy cardstock! The clear ep really gave a stunning texture and sheen to the images. The BG paper is Basic Grey Fruitcake, the red cardstock is actually Ruby Red, and the Green is Bazzill.

OK - just one more for today - and even though it's a simple card it's one of my favorites.

"I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and fortress; my God; in Him will I trust." I am SO thankful for the love and sacrifice of Christ for me. He is my God, my Saviour, my Shepherd and my King, and he loves me!! Isn't that incredible??

The background of the card is stamped with the Flannel BG stamp by Stampin Up. Then I went back and added straight lines with my ruler and little dots for nails. (Although if you look closely they kind of look like little alien faces! ) The colors are Old Olive and Ballet Blue. Image by Art Impressions.

Thanks for stopping by!!
