Happy Mother's Day

I have been organising my craft area and in between I get distracted when I was sorting out the wild orchid crafts flowers I bought a while ago,  and made this mother's day card for the following challenges :
1.  Card Pattern sketch 163
2.  Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge week 47 - spring is in the air

I used mainly scraps pieces of patten paper I have lying around from previous crafting sessions, DCWV cardstocks, unity stamps : happy mother's day, flower lace from HK, butterfly embellishment from K & Company and of course Wild Orchid Crafts roses.

Wild Orchid Crafts has a bi-weekly candy here, they have beautiful flowers in all shapes and sizes, go check them out.

I hope to have some photos to show on my "organised" craft area soon, and my crafting friends are coming over next wed, yay!

Thanks for dropping by.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart

Here is another card which I made for the Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge 114 - "use of of your oldest stamp sets which you have not used for a while".  This must be one of the first ODB stamps I bought since my mentor Angie introduced them to me.   I have been messy and very disorganized with all my stash, so after this, I really have to sit down and get my stuff organized. So for now, a very simple card, made with no embellishments and ribbons, just a frame for the sentiments.

Materials used :
1.  ODB stamps
2.  Pattern paper : Bo Bunny garden girl collection, card stock : local bookstore
3.  Cheery Lynn dainty dutch deco frame

Thanks for dropping by :-)

The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear?

I am getting some of my sanity back, and with the part-time domestic help coming in to clean the house, I have more time to create.   I hope to make some layout pages soon, but for now, here is a card I made for the Our Daily Bread Design sketch 83 - I did not follow the sketch entirely though.
Materials used :
1.  ODBD stamps for both the sentiments and background
2.  Pattern paper : sei, cardstock : American crafts
3.  Spellbinders nesties
4.  Lace : American crafts
5.  Flowers : Wild orchid and Thailand
6.  Ribbon : HK

Be Still and know that I am GOD

It has been a while since I last make a card.   My package of Christmas stamps and Cheery Lynn dies and I decided to make this card for the Our Daily Bread Designs stamping in time challenge -SNTODBD 47 - my favorite scripture.   Be Still and know that I am God - Psalm 46:10 has always been my favorite scripture verse.  More often than not, I am too caught up with my own troubles and problems that I forgot to cast all my worries to God, this verse, will always remind me of the need to be still, to drop all worries and frustrations and know that He is God.

Materials used :
1.  ODBD stamp : Be still and know that I am God
2.  Pattern paper : Sei sunny day, Cosmo cricket garden variety, cardstock : American crafts
3.  MS punch
4.  Cheery Lynn doily dies - french pastry
5.  Ribbon - American crafts
