Psalm 33:21 for Word Art Wednesday

 Some  pretty Mintay paper seemed just right for this joyful scripture.  I was sure to include the tiny singing bird in the heart die cut by Papertrey Ink.

Please join us at Word Art Wednesday .  As always, you will find the scripture available for free download, will have an opportunity to win a great crafting prize and will be able to read the devotional.

Sketch Challenge : I Vike You

 This little Viking was recently released from the vault and then was included in a sale.  So glad I ordered it; I am trying to be more deliberate about including masculine stamps in my stash.  Colored these a while back when my craft room was awaiting new furniture and I had everything strewn about the house.  Finally had a chance to place this little herd of Vikings on cards.

Sunny Snippets Mittens

 My stash has been begging for a large mitten die, and I love this one from Sunny Studios.  Just added four more Christmas cards to my stash.  Yippee!

Butterflies, Birds, and Blooms


There's a relatively new challenge blog in town:  Triple B for Birds, Blooms, and Butterflies.  It's hosted by the very talented Double D:  Darlene and Diane.

This month's mood board is gorgeous, and I was inspired by the yellow tones.  Birds, blooms, and butterflies are in the majority in my stash; I'd have added a butterfly had it not felt crowded.

Both the sentiment and the birds are retired Papertrey Ink products (Brushed Birds and Year of Psalms), but the Cherry Blossom dies are currently available.  

Thanks so much for the opportunity to share as a guest designer this month, ladies.

Peaceful Dove

Just finished a dozen Christmas cards featuring MFTs Peaceful Dove.  I used two 12 x 12 sheets, one red and one green.  The printed panels are from a coordinating 6 x 6 pad.  I cut all the pieces first and then assembled.

Taste and See that the Lord is Good

 God is ALWAYS good, and any time one wants to give Him a chance, He will show his goodness, mercy, and love!

My card proclaims that truth using the sweet "Coffee or Tea?" Bundle from Stamp Simply.  I love this set because of its attention to detail.  It's easy to make a lovely card just by die cutting beautiful paper with the delicate cup die.

MFT Perfect Poppies

 I purchased My Favorite Things Perfect Poppies Die-Namics around spring break and have had such fun making cards with them. They make especially pretty wedding cards in very soft pastels.  This card is a little brighter in Summer Sunset, Raspberry Fizz, and Hawaiian Shores.  Just love the details in the dies!

There's a new challenge over at Word Art Wednesday, and My Favorite Things.  Hope you play along which will give you a chance at a generous gift card from MFT!
