JustWordz ~ DT project #6

Hey guys!
It's been super busy here this week. Lots of projects flying out the door for customers. Not much time to blog. But I do have this very special shabby card to share with all of you today.

I had so much fun creating this card for the JustWordz DT. If you aren't familiar with JustWordz you need to check out their website. They have the cutest sentiment stamps. So many verses and sayings can be made with these sets. And the fonts are just darling!

I hope you all are having a wonderful month so far. Can't believe it's almost Feb!! We have been blessed with warm temps and not allot of snow this year. That's rare for the Mid West.

I just want to give a shout out to my wonderful followers! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment about my work. I really appreciate you taking the time to do that. It makes my day so much brighter!

If you have downloaded any pictures from my site... why not pay back the favor by becoming a follower of my blog?

As always thank you for stopping by.
Wishes for a great day!

JustWordz ~ DT project #5

Hey guys!

Can you believe it is time to start thinking about Valentine's day? Wowzers this year is flying by. We are already 1/2 way done with the school year. Crazy!!

This card is identical to a card I made last year. I loved it so much that I CASED myself. LMBO!! Actually this is my hubby's Valentine. I remember him really liking the card I made so much that I decided to duplicate it. Only the sentiment is different. The sentiment is from JustWordz stamps. It was the perfect size font for the space and with all of the text available in this set of stamps it was a perfect choice.

I hope you are all enjoying your January.
Thanks for stopping by.
Wishes for a great day!

Melissa Frances Spotlight & Give~a~Way Winner Announced

Hey my fellow bloggers!
I have some super wonderful news to share with you all today. My Twinkle, Twinkle card above is being featured on the Melissa Frances blog today! You can only imagine the excitement I had when I found out that my card had been selected for such an honor. This card is extremely special to me. I made it for a friend of mine who had suffered several miscarriages before the birth of her first born. This card was made for her baby shower which she postponed until she was 8 months... just in case. I knew I wanted to create something extra special so I immediately reached for my Melissa Frances papers and embellies. There was no other choice for materials than the soft palette and wonderful detail Melissa Frances products have. I wanted only the best for my sweet friend.

This card remains a favorite of mine.

Thank you to everyone over at Melissa Frances for featuring my card today. I am so very honored to be a part of your lovely community and blog. If you have yet to use any Melissa Frances products... I ensure you it is a must. You will be in awe of the quality and attention to every detail. The product alone is the only inspiration you will need to create a one of a kind piece.

In celebration of my big debut
I am having a Give~a~Way of Melissa Frances products.
Here is what you could win!

The Winner is...

JustWordz ~ DT project #4

Hi Guys!
We are finally getting snow here in the Chicagoland area. So much snow that we are under a winter storm advisory. Great day to stay inside and create! Perfect chance for me to use my new Keurig for some hot cocoa. I just love that coffee maker. Don't know what I did with out it!

I hope you all are enjoying your January so far. Things around here are a little hectic to say the least. Lots of deadlines to keep up with. But that means I should have lots to share with all of you real soon.

The card I want to share with you today was made using JustWordz clear stamp set "Party Time". This stamp set is so fun to work with. I love how I can come up with any sentiment I choose! I combined Graphic 45, Prima, SU, and Martha on this card.

I hope you are all staying warm!
Thanks for stopping by.
Wishes for a great day!

JustWordz ~ DT project #3

Hey gang,

The card I have to share with you today features clear stamps from Just Wordz stamps. These versatile stamps can be mixed and matched for so many sentiment opportunities.

 I am really getting into painting the edges of my cards. I love the contrast of a darker base when painted. Black looks real sharp! The papers are all Melissa Frances, ribbon is SU. If you ever see something not listed and you want to know where to get it... just shoot me an email and I will gladly respond with the information you need.

Thanks for stopping by~
Wishes for a great day!
