Kindness Matters

Loving this stamp set soo much, so many ways to use it. I hope you get yours out and try this layout. I followed the layout for  challenge SCCSC87 in Stampin Connection. First time I actually try a challenge. It was fun!! This one is for the most important woman in my life. My dear mother!! She loves when I send her cards I made. Do you think she will like it? :-)

Leave me your love with your comments and let me know how can I bless you!!

Fall is here!!

I am so glad the cool weather is coming thru. Im also starting to feel the rush rush of the Holiday season aproaching, not good, hum! I am purposely going to slow down this year. :-) Let's stop and "smell the roses" and be determined to enjoy every moment God gives us to enjoy. He is good and His love endures forever. There is one very special lady in our church that we all love. She works soo hard in all the administrative things that have to be done and seems to me she is always there when I need her. So awesome!! I made this small gift for her last month. They gave us the opportunity to thank her for all she does so I made my very first Explosion Box. She loves Fall colors, so I grabbed some of my Fall Dsp from last year. (I kept it for something special) and made this. Hopefully I can make a nice tutorial on how to make this one after my October 22nd cards class. Check more info  Don't miss it!! Will be fun!

Anyway, here is my take on the explosion box. I sure hope she liked it (I think she did) :-D Leave me your love with your comments and visit my store HERE.

Is Time to say Thanks

Hi again!! Hope someone is actually reading my posts, lol!!! No comments yet. None in the lasts weeks. :-( I love your responses. Let me know if these ideas are inspiring you in some way or if there is a specific type of project you would like to see. Is easy to place a comment, just click on Post a comment at the bottom of my post and follow the instructions. :-) Anyway, does it happen to you that at times you have so many people to be thankful to that you have not enough time to create cards you wish to give them . Yikes!! I already thought of a few more I "owe" a thank you. I am so blessed to have such amazing friends around me with only one year in my current dusty, dry, WONDERFUL Lubbok, Texas. :-D Yeap! I love this place. Anyway, here a couple of thank you notes for a couple of amazing ladies God placed in my life. They simply ROCK!!

Cut two Top Note die cuts, one with cardstock and one in a coordinating Designer Series Paper. Score the DSP one @ 1 1/2" and fold down to reveal the opposite side of the paper. Adhere close to the edges of the front of your cardstock with your preferred adhesive. Tie a piece of ribbon to the front with or without a bow. For the inside cut a piece of 2" x 3 1/2" Very Vanilla CS and mat on a piece of 2 1/4" x 3 3/4" Pumpkin Pie (in this case). Stamp your piece of VV CS with your preferred stamp set and place a brad on the top holding a small piece of ribbon to pull. Hope you enjoy it.

I learned these ones from my fellow demonstrator and friend Renee Hobbie. You can see her sample HERE.
Thanks Renee!! I had fun making these ones.

Creative Friends

Hello!! I super need to share this with you today. God has been so good to me to put by my side ladies that are full of His creative power. I decide to download some cards some ladies from my Clubs gave me in the last weeks. I am in awe of their creativity. So today I honor them!! There names are Brandi Evans, Jennifer Bailey and Cindy Herbet. Thanks for blessing me with these my sweet friends. You made my day. God knew I needed a lift, and He sent you!!

This is from my wonderful friend Brandi Evans. First time stamping!! Can you believe it? She is awesome. My watermark says was created by me, but no, it was all her idea. These are from her first Stampin Up order. Im impressed!

These two are from my sweet sister Jen Bailey. She came one Saturday and started experimenting. Voila!! These came from her, aren't they amazing? She made me one with my initial. :-)

Last but not least, Cindy Herbet surprised me yesterday with a card during Club. I realized I could make a different watermark, so I did with hers. She has no idea how much it blessed me to know she was thinking of me. I so like "homemade" cards. I can't remember when was the last time I bought a card at the store. Haha!! You made my day my friend. Thanks Lord Jesus for amazing ladies surrounding me and encouraging on my journey. I am simply blessed!
