Be Still Lilacs

 The Botanicuts Lilac dies bring back sweet spring memories and are a joy to ink and use in craft projects!  This card pairs the lilacs with a favorite scripture from Verve Stamps and is accented by a die from Papertrey Ink.

Best Wishes to the Mr. and Mrs.

The Mandala and Stitched Flowers are favorites from My Favorite Things.  I love the color selections and softened them a bit for this wedding card.  The inside reads:  Best wishes to the Mr. and Mrs. 

MFT Color Challenge

You're Fintastic

It's fun to play along with a sketch challenge!  I love the creativity that comes from combining supplies and stamps that are on-hand along with an occasion and a sketch.  It makes for more creative cards, I think.  This one features the so-cute Baby Shark die-namics and the coordinating sentiment stamps.

Hinds' Feet on High Places for WAW


This scripture beautifully expresses the way God's presence brings loving security to even the most challenging times.  Karen will have a lovely devotion elaborating on this precious verse, and it is also available for download at Word Art Wednesday.  Please make plans in the next couple of weeks to stop by the WAW Blog for your copy of the word art, an opportunity to share your work, and maybe even to be randomly selected as a prize winner.



The papers, inks, and dies used in my card are all from Papertrey Ink.

Newton's Birthday Balloons

What a happy spring palette that has been provided for crafting inspiration over on the  Inky Paws Challenge blog.  I needed a quick birthday card and the color scheme was just perfect for a cheerful card featuring Newton's Balloons.  I filled the inside with punny feline sentiments from several sets and stamped our kitties' signatures with a cute paw image.

Ps. 139:5 Memory Dex Card for Word Art Wednesday

 Psalm 139:5  speaks to the fact that God protects His children and never leaves us alone.  It will be an encouragement as it takes its place in my scripture  MemoryDex.  The papers are from a My Mind's Eye stack and the floral cluster is from my tray of 'spare card parts'.

You may download a copy of this scripture in its lovely format at Word Art Wednesday.  As always, there is devotion to elaborate on the verse, some art to inspire, and a fun place to enter your own work for an opportunity to win a prize.
