Well yesterday you saw Kelly’s BD card and today you get to see the card set I made for her. Extremely simple….no fluff. I like how they turned out, what do you think?
I used two Kim Hughes sets that I have…Forest Frindzy and Little Gal stamp sets. I paper pieced the kite and made a few highlights on the kites and clouds for a little color and depth.
We have our Bi-Lingual service today at church! We always have such a wonderful move of God in each of our services. Can’t wait!!!
Well I need to go and get us ready for church. I will be posting challenge #2 tonight….Have a great day and many blessings.
EDIT 10/2: HI!!! I just found the card that gave me the inspiration for this set…I should of known that it was to uber talented Teri….I orig. saw the card on SCS and I was just surfing Teri’s Blog (A bit of this.A bit of that.) and came across the card again….so thanks Teri for the inspiration….and look at the orig. masterpiece here

I made this card for a friend…her birthday was on Thursday. I also made this card for a challenge over at Waltzingmouse. Lovey her stamps and blog. She is from Ireland…Ummm…can anyone say…TOTALLY AWESOME!!!!
The challenge was to make a card using green and lots of green….I used the new Earth Love paper from Cosmo Cricket and they have this cool green cloud like paper…(see card above..LOL!) and I love it!
Next week is the launch of my second blog challenge, so make sure you stop by and play along.
We have a busy weekend. Jeremy and I are going to be working at our Youth Dept. booth at Octoberfest. This is our Youth groups biggest fund raiser. This is Jeremy’s first year in youth and so technically our first year working at the booth. It’s going to be a lot of fun!!!
Well thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend!

I can’t remember if I posted this card or not…I don’t think I have…. Isn’t this image adorable? It’s from The Greeting Farm. I love her hair! The image name is Annika, my cousin’s eldest daughter (5 yrs old) is name Ahnika and that’s why I bought the stamp….it looks just like her, even down to the hair. She’s full of adventure and spunk….all good qualities.
I used October Afternoon – Cherry Hill paper and colored the images with Copic markers. Yummy stuff!
The prayer revival was totally awesome and I’ll probably share more later….Hope you have a wonderful week!
Many Blessings,
