For Rick

Howdy Crafters - I so love my balloon stamps from QKR Stampede - it has been awhile since I created a card using one of my balloon stamps.

I am giving this card to my sweet husband who is going through a journey with stage 3 cancer.  Although my heart is broken, I will Praise God through this Storm.

A Christian Song I have been listening to this week that has given me encourage through my Christian walk as husband's caregiver ~ the inspiring song is by Mercy Me called "Even If"  - Click Here to Listen and view the words on screen.

The sentiment inside this card is also a rubber stamp by QKR - I like the chuckle it provides to both of us
during this journey on Earth. Laughter is a good medicine ~ there is Always HOPE. Thank you Jesus.

Thank you Crafters for stopping by ~ have a blessed day - Always a blessing to have you visit my blog and for me to enter challenges. ~ Gail ~

Coffee Bear

Howdy Crafters:

Love this bear from LSH that I brought into Silhouette and made into a Print N Cut - cut with my Portrait Die Cutting Machine- Coffee sentiment is a die cut connected letter die from Stamplorations. Scotch foam tape is behind this bear - the Cuttlebug was used to cut the bottom mat using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle die- Spellbinders Rectangle die was used for mat 2 - have a blessed week.

Play Ball!

Howdy Crafters - Regina Easter from the Cutting Cafe is have a Cyber-Sale today [actually most Monday's are cyber-sale days in which you can get a fabulous bargain on a batch of PDF/SVG files for your crafting pleasure- so make note of that.]

The Shaped Bat and Ball SVG or PDF are part of that sale today which ends at midnight at   The Cutting Cafe


I am using the bat cut only for my card today. [you can create a bat shaped or ball shaped card however]

I had the Paper House Patterned scenic cardstock in my stash which include the baseball - I cut out the shaped using my Cuttlebug and Lawn Fawn Stitched rectangle die.

 I added the following to my card:
 The Cutting Cafe Bat - sponged with two distress inks: Dried Marigold and Tea-Dye - I used a marker to add the line in the bat and stamped the numbers on white cardstock using brown ink and my Misti - fussy cut and glued to the bat. 

The PLAY sentiment is a WRMK stamp I have had for years and this is my first time using it [good grief!]

 I used another Lawn Fawn Rectangle stitched die with white cardstock for my sentiment base.

Scotch Foam tape was placed behind the bat to give it dimension on my card - I am so loving this card and how it turned out this morning.
