I made these 2 cards for the Stampin' B design Team Challenge to use a butterfly, die cut and flower. I had so much fun making these. I hadn't used this little butterfly in a long time, because I really like my Layers of Color butterfly. I saw this one when I was cleaning up last night and knew I had to use it today.

Got Butterflies????

I made this butterfly milk carton for the Limited Supplies challenge, although I have to admit it wasn't very limited, and for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge. I know the purpose of the limited supplies is to show what you can do as a beginner. I only used white cardstock for this project. I brayered one piece with dark green and lime green ink. I then stamped greenery with dark green and lime green. I played with my new cuttlebug to make the windows. They could have been just as well cut out with scissors. I taped acetate to the inside of the windows. I made two porcelain butterflies using my LAYERS OF COLOR stamps and tied the milk box with a ribbon. I filled it with kisses.

1 Peter 1:23 (NIV) "For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God."
That is the scripture for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge. We were reminded that seeds send out little shoots of green. We have the hope of eternal life, because of Christ. We were planted in Him, and as the Holy Spirit works on our lives we begin to grow. Little green shoots that give us a glimpse of what we will be like after this world. We were to use green in a project to remind us of our eternal hope. It didn't have to be all green just a touch. I couldn't help myself and there is not just a touch of green, but a whole lot. I guess I just got carried away because I'm tired of white, outside my window.

This is for the ways to use it challenge at Splitcoast. We were challenged to use textiles on our card or projects. I have had material with these little hogs for about 8 years. I thought that it would be cute to use on a card. I glued the material to cardstock using Aleene's tacky glue, I then cut out around the hogs image. I made an origami box and lid and added two large hearts to the edges. I added a button with twine and ribbon and fibers. Of course I had to fill it with kisses.

Derek the Dragon

This is the card I made for Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday challenge. I drew these little dragons, colored them with prisma colored pencils and cut them out. I love this old sketch.
I added green to Derek the dragon for the Stampin' Sisters is Christ Challenge to add green to our cards this week.

Blessed are they that mourn


I made this card for the TLC at splitcoast. I love these side step cards. I used one of my porcelain paper butterflies and a scrunched flower. I used cardstock that had touches of green for the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge to add a touch of green to our cards. This card was made for a special lady. She lost her mother last week. Her mother was in her 90's and was a godly woman. We know where she is, and we are happy for her, but my friend is sad at the loss. I hope that this card lets her know that I am thinking and praying for her and that it brings a little comfort.

My house

I know it has been a long time since I added anything to my blog. I have been trying to get my priorities in line. This week's challenge for the Stampin Sisters in Christ made me focus even more on my priorities. I really want to make sure that I am helping my family serve the Lord. I made this bookmark for the challenge, and also for a friend of mine at Church. She is a single mom trying to raise 5 kids. I hope that this is an encouragement to her.
