My Pumpkin Challenge: Thank you Cards

I am loving so much meeting new ladies in my area and creating new things for them. I am already in creative gear for our next Coffee and Cards class on April 12th…I believe I'l be having a bigger group than usual for this one, so why not having two sessions. RSVP asap for this one, we will be featuring  Mother's Day projects. :0) Stay posted for some samples! Yay!

Today, I am grateful for all the ladies that have been venturing out once a month on Saturday mornings to come craft with me. My agenda is very busy at the moment preparing for the different events Im hosting in April and May. See previous post not to miss any of them.

I made this card inspired by My Pumpkin Challenge. This is the last week of the Circles & Bags Challenge. Go take a peek at such wonderful creations and go to the one posting March 1st to see all the beauties others have linked. :)

I am making these thank you cards for all my ladies. My ladies from class, my downline -who share the wonderful love of Stampin'Up! with me- and my Paper Pumpkin team! I love having them in my life, so here goes a My Paper Pumpkin thank you card for each of them!

Im in the process of making a few more of these today to send. I love when my friends feel loved
and I am grateful I can form beautiful friendships through my business. 
Thank you so much!

I used the In-Color CS Coastal Cabana as my card base and the beautiful 
Sweet Sorbet DSP, one of the free Sale-A-Bration items you get for free till March 31st.
Not sure you noticed this is one of those cute Thinlits card. 
Gotta love having my Big Shot, easy and simple to use. :)

What do you think of the new photopolymer stamps with the kits….cool eh!?
Just to inspire you a bit, this quote helped me today to keep walking forward in my business.
What goals are you working on…keep moving forward, even if is hard.

 "If you can't fly, then run.
If you can't run, then walk.
If you can't walk, then drag yourself.
But no matter what, keep moving forward."
-Martin Luther King Jr.

Decor Idea with My Digital Studio

Hello my dear stampers,

I've been considering doing some art work for my daughters' room for quiet some time now. I do a lot of things for others but forget to do more decor items in my own home. I went to a store and got myself some pretty white frames and I'm envisioning a wall full of art, their names and their pictures.
Sort of a headboard but on the wall.

:) In our daily devotionals we have been studying 1 Timothy 6:11 It tells us to pursue righteousness, godliness, encouraging. One of the illustrations I gave the kids about faith is about a seed. The seed needs good soil (the church), water (the Word of God) and sunshine (God's Presence) to grow. Long story short we focused last week on entering God's presence. His Word says when we seek God we go to Him with thanksgiving and here is our memory verse for this week. Having a relationship with Jesus is the most important asset in life…and it is eternal. This I want my kids to know and seek daily.

(click to see bigger)

I plan to have several Bible verses and words of encouragement for each of them. I love having these little girls in my life. I am grateful indeed.

I made two colors, one for each of my girls. My embellishments all come from the FREE SAB Digital One Big Ensemble you could get when you purchase $50 till March 31st. Wonderful perks for loving this company. Did you know this month I am a 4yr Stampin'Up! Demonstrator??!!! Yay! 

Check out all that Saleabration has to offer. Is so easy and it brings so much! 
Check it here!

Don't forget to RSVP with time…last day to register for this fantastic day is April 12th. 
Can't wait to spend this day with you all having fun! Yay!

Creative Blessings!

Brand New with My Paper Pumpkin

I met this sweet lady not long ago who adopted this super cute baby boy. Is like God totally placed this baby in her arms in the right timing. She has only girls and for many years wanted a boy. I met this boy and could not stop thinking of him.

So I made him a little simple bag with a matching card and brought him a welcoming gift. I believe every child needs to be celebrated! God has amazing plans with him and I felt so happy for this family. I love the way they treat each other and how they bless my children too. I'm grateful for the little blessings in Lewisburg, PA.

 Totally forgot to take a pic of the inside…I stamped the "Cute boy" shoes image. :)

What do you think?

This card (to my BIG surprise) was easy to think and make because of this awesome kits. 
I stamped my sentiments this time with the sweet stamp set Baby, We've Grown

So glad I got this one. So many cards to make with it indeed.
I also was inspired my this month My Pumpkin Challenge: Fun with Circles & Bags.
I used the new My Paper Pumpkin photopolymer stamps from 'In The Bag" kit. Cute!

My beautiful girlfriends always fill me with joy with their creations. Go visit their blogs today and leave them an encouraging word. They are so amazing every week creating to inspire you and me!

Good morning dear ones,

This is the day the Lord has made and I choose to rejoice…

My Paper Pumpkin Cases

I have to share with you today something I made today (meaning Tuesday) and I am so excited!!!
But first let me share what I placed in last weeks bags.

Remember these!?

Inside I placed these little notebooks I made for my daughter. We celebrated her birthday a few weeks ago and thou she got a toy, mama had to make her something with paper. Yes, I HAD to! :) 
And I loved too!

I used the circle stamps from MPP for the background and the Notes sentiment
The flower is from the Flower Shop and coordinating Pansy Punch.
 Cute eh?!
Here is standing so you could see the pages 
I used different colors from the Subtles Designer Series Paper packs. :)

Flowers were stamped onto Bermuda Bay Cardstock.
I will post a short tutorial on how I made these tomorrow. Time flies and this mama needs to do kids baths. Lol! Daylight Savings Time owe me an hour…gee! And I already felt behind on a ton of things.

Do that happens to you too?
I want to do more…accepting my limitations is not something easy to do when everyone arounds me (psst…husband and kids) truly think I am superwoman. Am I starting to think I am? Ha!
I am nooooot….but I take the challenge every morning trusting what the Word says.."He has equipped you with everything you need for life and godliness." (Hebrews 13:21) Love it!

Have a blessed day and visit My Pumpkin Challenge today. 
Many beautiful creations from my designer friends Boni, Cathy and Heather!

Oooh, and I almost forget…take a little peek into what I made today for youuu!
Come back tomorrow and I'l explain…baths REALLY have to be done ;)
