French Foliage Thank You Card

Good day! I made a simple "thank you" card using the French Foliage stamp set. The leaf is very light in colour after I embossed the white card stock. Next time I'll use a darker colour ink so it'll show up more. I like how the card turn out even though it is hard to see the images.

I have been busy moving my stamping supplies to a different room (would love to have my own stamping room) and purge what ever I don't need or want anymore. I'm not done yet. Takes forever it seems. I can't believe I have so many stamping supplies that I haven't use. Time to do something with them.

Thank you for stopping by! Happy Stamping!

Sharing In Your Sorrow Card

Hi, stampers! While I was on my vacation my Pastor's dad passed away. Pastor told us that he was given a special funeral service because he served in the marine when is was young. I think that was awesome.

I made this card for my Pastor for condolence. I have not stamp for awhile and was rusty at making this card. I was stuck on ideas. Hopefully once my kids go back to school I'll have more time to stamp  and get my mojo back.

Thank you for stopping by! Happy Stamping!

The Secret Trip

Hello, everyone! It has been awhile since I last post. Been away a lot. I helped out at my church annual camp Y.E.S! for a week a half, come home for few days just so I can do the laundry, packed again and then off on a trip for my husband Martin's 40th birthday. Remember back in December I made a tag for him as a Christmas present? On it I wrote that he is going on a secret trip for his birthday. Well, last week we went on the secret trip. I didn't tell him what he is getting into until 12 mins before we arrived at our destination. It was a special meeting so I wanted him to be very surprise. I kept it from him for 8 months and it was not easy to do. So, what I did was I asked a pastor to play for Martin for an hour. Martin loves his style of music. The pastor agreed so we flew all the way to Connecticut to meet him. From the west coast to the east coast. Pastor Cary Schmidt is very nice, funny and easy to talk to. It was a privilege to meet him and his family. We had fun listening and watching him play and fellowship with him and his wife. Martin's heart is content now that he met Cary Schmidt. Cary Schmidt also writes many helpful and encouraging books that can be purchase at Striving Together Publications. You can also get his music there too. He has a blog that I love to visit and truly is an encouraging blog. It has help me a lot.

Thank you for stopping by! I will post some creative things for you to see soon.
