A Big Bouquet of Flowers

Hello Friends!



  For todays card, I used the brushed rose stamp with pastel chalk inks for a soft look.  The green background was created using tissue paper crumbled and smoothed out then mod lodged onto cardstock.  Thought I would use the Get Well Soon sentiment would be perfect.  


Supplies:
 Just for Fun Stamps:  F 3812 Brushed Rose  
Get Well Soon from Sentiments 1 Unmounted Sentiment Sheet

Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day!!
Guess who is having birthday?
My little Neptune, my little friend and companion.  5 years old :)I just wanted to share this sweet picture of my pup who is turning 5 this month.
 


Well, I don't know anyone having a birthday until July but I bet that birthday cards are the most used.  Just my guess, or perhaps they are most used by me.  With Thinking of You coming in a close second.
I love this background!! So many ways to use it !  I will probably try it with a solid color also.







Supplies:  Just for Fun Stamp:  Stamptangle Pattern Background H3803

Fabulous Book

I love it when I find a great Christian Fiction book......here it is...

Finding Me by Kathryn Cushman


From the Back Cover

What would you do if you learned your life was a lie?
All her life, Kelli Huddleston has been told the story of a fire--a fire that killed her mother and two siblings when she was an infant. After her father's death though, she uncovers evidence of a different story, including clippings about a boat accident that killed a young father and his infant daughter. And Kelli quietly realizes the story of her life has been a fiction.

My Review

The story started out a little slow but as you got into it, the characters came alive. I thought it was a beautiful story, refreshing, not what I was expecting.
Kelli grows up believing her life only to find out after her father dies that her father had made up her life.  She struggles with telling the others in her family or keeping the secret.  Twists and turns and a tough choice Kelli has to make  It just shows you that sometimes people the closest to you, you may not know them at all. Makes you think about your own life. Wonderful Read!

I highly recommend this.  I was given book for free however it is a great book and worth purchasing. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Cupid.. Real or not?


I have always loved cupid!  So who was Cupid....

Cupid, one of the gods in Roman mythology that controls love. He is the Roman counterpart to the Greek god Eros. His name comes from the Latin word cupido, which translates to “passion, desire, yearning, wanting, or longing.” However, in Latin, Cupid is known as Amor. The Latin word means “love, infatuation, or passion.”


Regardless of your belief in cupid, you have to agree he is adorable!

Are you getting excited about Valentines day?? I am only excited because I love all the cute decor out in the stores and all the hearts !!  

Using
 Just for Fun Rubber stamps!!! So much fun!!! My card for you today:


Cupid was embossed with silver gray embossing powder and Love was embossed with clear detail embosssing powder.  Layered, and gems.





Supplies Used:  Just for Fun Rubber stamps:  Romantic Cube CB9020
                          Just for Fun Rubber stamps:  Unmounted Romanic Sheet UMS 7010

gems, glitter, colored pencils, glaze pens, embossing powder
