Hello, stampers! Good day! I crocheted a rose brooch for a friend's birthday. Her favourite colour red so I made a red one for her. You might remember if you have been following my blog for a long time the brooch I made here a couple of Christmas ago. I did some adjustment to the rose. I didn't like the one I made for before. It was too flimsy.
I stamped a piece of card stock, put the stamp piece and the brooch in a cello bag and then put a topper on top. A pretty presentation.
My nephew Alex had his grad ceremony yesterday. He graduated from grade 12 and this was the card I made for him. It took me about 10 minutes to make this card. Wow! I've never made a card this fast before.
Here Alex and me.
Hope (6 yrs old) had to get in on it too so this was what she came up with. Isn't it a beautiful card? She amazes me all the time. Faith helped her with the letters.
I love the cap and the diploma she made. So cute! I love the tassel too! I don't know how she came up with it nor do I know how she knows about the cap and diploma are for graduation. She is full surprises.
This is the best part of the card. Under their names there is a fine print that made me laugh so hard. So hilarious! Must be Faith who wrote that. She is so funny! Love my girls!
Good day! I made two birthday cards for 2 little girls' birthday this week. I have not stamp much lately so I really enjoyed making these cards. Stamping makes me happy. I know it is weird but it keeps me calm and helps me relax from my busy day.
I used one of the Simply Scappin' Kit to make these cards. It is easy and fast for me when I don't have a lot of time to come up with a card that uses stamps. Only used stamp for the sentiment.
Good day stampers! I finally finished decorating the box I made here. I made matching cards to go inside the box. I used The Open Sea stamp set that I love so much and sad it is retiring to make the cards and box. I never get tire of this stamp set.
I got my inspirations from the back cover of the Baptist Voice magazine from Lancaster Baptist Church. I love reading this magazine. Lots of great articles to read.
The box holds 6 cards and envelopes comfortably.
Thank you for stopping by! Happy Stamping!

Hello, stampers! I don't have any creative things to show you today but just a couple of pictures we took while on vacation last week. It was an anniversary/family/Mother's Day vacation. We went to Seaside, Oregon. We love that place and really had a good time. The picture above was taken on our 17th anniversary day. We invited one of our friend and her family on vacation with us. They watched ours kids so that we were able to go on a date on our anniversary. She is a wonderful friend. Not only did she watched our kids on our anniversary but also took care of our food bill while we were there. She was such a blessing! God is so good!
We made it a tradition to take special pictures by the beach while at Seaside. Above is one of the pictures of our kids. They are all grown up now from the last time we were at Seaside. You can see the pictures from 5 years ago here.
It's raining inside! lol Last week a friend and I decorated for the baby shower. This was the shortest time I ever got for me to make stuff for the baby shower. They usually give me at least 3 weeks notice to come up with the decorations. I'm glad I wasn't the one who had to come up with the theme. The theme was "showered with love." We decorated the shower with clouds, raindrops and hearts.
I made the banner using the Stampin'Up! Hearts Collection Framelits. I'm so glad for the framelits. It made cutting so much easier.
We hung the raincoats on a hook and filled the boots with fresh flowers.
This one was my favourite boot. It was a size 4 boot and it was so cute with the flowers in it.
Side view of the boot.
I made a template for the clouds, trace it onto plastic table cloth and then sewed them together. Then my friend stuffed the clouds with tissue papers. She added Easter grass at the bottom of the clouds to make it look like rain. So clever! I made a template for the raindrops too so my friend can trace it and cut them out.
I used the same cloud template and made a pillow for the expectant mother. The hearts cut from the same heart framelits as the banner. I hand sewed around the hearts to attach them to the pillow. I wanted to do the blanket stitch but totally forgot how to do it. Didn't have a lot of time to figure it out how to do the blanket stitch.
Banner of clouds at the gifts table.
These clouds were made from felts and stuffed with poly fill. I hand stitch the clouds using embroidery floss.
A beautiful cake made by one of the ladies at church.
The expectant mother. Still look pretty at 35 weeks.
Love her surprise look. lol I crocheted a dress and 3 hats for the baby, the sister and the mother.
A better picture of the dress. i forgot to take a picture of the dress and the hats before I gave it to her.
No card. I'm ashamed. Was too busy making the decorations I totally forgot.
Thank you for stopping by! Hope you enjoy looking at the baby shower pictures.
Hello, stampers! I made a sympathy card yesterday and I like so today I made a birthday card. I use the same stamp set for the main image and happy birthday sentiment instead of sympathy sentiment. I use the same colour combo but this time the card base is Only Orange card stock. Ooo... I love the colours of this card. So vibrant! I know my sister will love this card for sure because she loves orange but this is for my mom's birthday.
Thank you for visiting today! Have a good weekend and happy stamping!
A simple sympathy card. I use the Upsy Daisy stamp set for main image
and the Teeny Tiny Wishes for the sentiment. Not my usual colour combo
to use but it is pretty together.
A friend's dad passed away yesterday and this is the card I made for her. Please pray for Lisa and her family. Her dad loved the Lord when he was here on earth and now he is with God up in heaven. We praise God for that! Some day we'll see him again up in heaven.
I have a couple of questions for you. Where will you spend eternity when you die? Where will your soul be? We never know when our last breath is here on this earth. I can tell you that you can know for sure where you'll spend eternity when you die. All you need to do is confess that you are a sinner, ask Jesus to forgive you and ask Him into your heart and save you. It is that easy. You can read more about to get saved in this e-book Done. If you can't read the e-book let me know and I'll send a free book to you.
I would like to invite you to an Easter Musical at my church GVBC. There will be singing from the choir and some drama in the musical. I will be singing in the choir. If you live in the Metro Vancouver area please drop by and say "hi." I would love to meet you.
Hello, Stampers! It has been awhile since I made something to show you. I have been sewing. I made a bridesmaid's dress and will be making 2 more of the same dress. There was no pattern for me to follow except a picture to look at. It was a challenge but the first one turned out almost like it. I can't wait to make the other 2 dresses.
I took a little time from sewing and made this little package for my little Master Clubbers ages 4-5. I'm in charge of them. Master Clubs is a club where children from ages 4-12 come on Wednesday night church to learn more about Jesus. It is a fun club and I love those little children.
The little chicks was not coloured so the kids can colour it themselves. I love the sentiment "you crack me up." It was prefect for them. The children do crack me up sometime.
Thank you for stopping by! Have a nice Resurrection Sunday!
