Words 2 Craft By Challenge #39

Words 2 Craft By has a new challenge going on “Proverbs and Blessings”. The inspirational words this month are from an Irish Proverb — A good friend is like a four-leaf clover: hard to find and lucky to have. You can create any kind of craft, I choose to make a card “You are my Lucky Penny”. I did find my inspiration on Pinterest.

Happy St. Patricks Day and thanks for stopping by.

Words 2 Craft By #38 Celebrations

There is another fun challenge over at Words 2 Craft By this month. The quote is from Mark Twain about Mardi Gras. I do love the colors of the celebration and I tried to incorporate them into my card. I love all the costumes (some outrageous). I used a stamp from Dylusions (Dyan Reavelry) and gold embossed it (one of the colors of Mardi Gras) and watercolored with distress inks. I die cut a bunch of little flowers to give her an amazing hat.

This was totally out of my comfort zone. But I loved every minute of how it took on its own flavor. Lots of sparkle and shine! The glitter paper is from DCWV and I also used Wink of Stella glitter markers on her lips and eyebrows.

Thanks so much for stopping by and Let the Good Times Roll!

Words 2 Craft By December 2016

This completes my first year as a shipper for SAS4KIDS. Here is one of the cards I created and snail mailed to thank the dedicated card makers who chose me to send their beautiful cards to. I so appreciate their dedication and hard work and the relationships I have made this last year. SAS4KIDS is not just about making cards it is about heart, kindness, appreciation, sharing and love.

The mitten die cut and sentiment is from Stamps of Life. Papers are from my stash.

I will be entering my card at Words 2 Craft By.

Thanks for stopping by. Happy New Year and Blessings to you in 2017!

Guest I Teamer Words 2 Craft By

Words 2 Craft By was created by ladies that were involved in Operation Write Home of which I was a big part of for five years. When Operation Write Home came to an end (troops came home — yea!) many of us didn’t know where to turn. A few of us found other ways to donate cards, I myself became involved in Send A Smile 4 Kids.

Winning last months challenge over at Words 2 Craft By wasn’t much to write home about. There were only four entries. I guess you could say I won by default. BUT because I “won” I was asked to be a Guest I-Teamer this month.

Based on this month’s quote here is my card:

thanksgiving-pilgrim-girl

All supplies used are from the Stamps of Life except for the additional leaves I added (punch). Little Pilgrim was colored with Copics.

I encourage you to check out Words 2 Craft By blog and create something using this month’s quote which can be found here.

Thanks for stopping by.

Words 2 Craft By September Challenge

The September/October Challenge over at Words 2 Craft By is “Every Child Deserves a Hero”. This is the quote to use as inspiration:

Every child deserves a champion — an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists they become the best they can possibly be. Rita Pierson

I am a grandmother to three wonderful human beings. I love spending time with them and seeing their achievements at each milestone in their lives. Yesterday the youngest (6 months old) said MOM for the first time. My other grandson is almost 10 and loves every sport on the face of the earth and stops at nothing to at least try it out. My granddaughter is 7 and loves, loves, loves football. She is on a flag football team this year (yea girl power). My husband and I try to go to all their games. Grandparents play a huge role in being a champion for their grandchildren.

Here is my card which was inspired by the above quote.

I used an image from Free Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps, colored with Copics. The sentiment was computer generated. Papers from Stamps of Life and the bling is from Hero Arts.
