No One Can Top You

 Creating with MFT's Pizza My Heart stamps and dies is always so much fun, and the card's recipient never fails to be delighted.  I love the dies to create the pizza topping....the bell pepper is my favorite both on the paper pizza and on the pizza ordered for a meal.  This week's simple sketch creates a fun spot for this cute pizza!

Gran's Garden on White

 The current Great Cover-Up challenge on the Papertrey Ink blog includes several wonderful cards and as many great ideas.  The challenge is to create a white-on-white background.  I love the helpful hint to keep some of these white-on-white bases prepared and ready for quick cards.  My background consists of the following layers:  Tin Stitched; Bracket die; Delicacies die.  All these sweet shapes are covered with blooms from Gran's Garden.

Thanks for stopping by,

Take Heart all who Hope in the Lord

 I send friendly notes and encouragement cards as part of my volunteer work, and I thought I'd send Valentines.  I wanted them to focus on God's love rather than romance, so I used new dies from PTI (I Heart You) and a dear retired scripture from Verve.  Can't wait to get these in the mail.

Take heart and hope in the Lord,

Isaiah 6:3 for Word Art Wednesday

This scripture is gorgeous...both in its awe-inspiring content and in the beauty of how it has been shared in word art.  It is available for download at Word Art Wednesday where you can also see inspiration pieces and read a related devotional.  It's worth a stop!

My card includes Fun Frames and Wreath Favor Box florals, both from Papertrey Ink.  The PTI papers and inks work together so well!

Pastel Birthday Bouquet

 Shauna has shared a wonderful video on the Papertrey Ink blog showing the creative process for a gorgeous floral bouquet card.  I am taking the challenge to create a floral bouquet using the Birthday Bouquet set from PTI.  I have fallen in love with Mint Julep so I kept the colors soft to coordinate with the pale leaves.  The card base is Aqua Mist...another favorite shade, and the intricate border was cut using the Scrolled Frame die.

Thanks so much for visiting.  I hope your Monday is as wonderful as mine has been!

Happy Birthday with Lush Blooms

 Dana shared a bright and cheerful card on the PTI blog as she challenged card-makers to create a floral birthday card.  My creation features Lush Blooms in Soft Blush, Hibiscus Burst, and Raspberry Fizz.  A Delicates die and a little foliage from Into the Blooms Dahlias are tucked behind.  It's already in an envelope for a friend's birthday tomorrow.
