Crafty Cardmakers Challenge - Love, Love, Love

We start a new challenge today at Crafty Cardmakers Challenge.  Our theme is Love, Love, Love since we're getting close to Valentine's Day.  Make any project pertaining to love and join us.  It doesn't have to be a card.  My project is a card as you probably know.

Card Supplies:
6.5"X6.5" card base
Background paper - "Smitten" by K and Co.
Dies - a new set by Anna Griffin called "Love/Easter Seasonal Cut and Emboss Dies. These were introduced on the HSN March Craft Day.  I have to stop watching.  I can't seem to resist.

I have been missing for a while.  I was in the hospital last week.  I had chest pains and passed out.  I had to stay 3 days for tests.  They determined one of my by-pass grafts has failed.  I am to see a surgeon Tuesday to determine if something can be done.  Hopefully they can stent it.  Your prayers will be appreciated.

Thank you for dropping in today.  I do hope you will join in our challenge at Crafty Cardmakers.

God Bless You!!!  Peggy

I have been asked to be on the Crafty Cardmakers Design Team.  Thank you, Lin, for this privilege.  The challenges are scheduled every 2 weeks.  I hope you will join us for these challenges.  The January 16th challenge is "New Beginnings".  Make a project representing a new beginning, i.e., baby, new home, marriage, etc. My card is about marriage.  I made my card for a couple getting married later this year.  This card was not hard to make but it looks so elegant in all white.

Happy Birthday, Jacob

Today is new release Sunday at Digistamps4Joy. It's not my team's time to post but I decided to used this new release to make my grandson a birthday card.  I hope he will forgive me for using an image with some flowers on it.  His birthday is the 16th and he will be 16.  My, how time flies.

Card Supplies:
A2 Card Base
Image - January Word by Jen Lee of DS4J.  This happens to be a pre-coloured image.  You can get it in black and white so you can color it yourself.  
Happy Birthday and 16 are images from Cricut Design Space that I flattened, then printed them and cut.  I love that feature.
Chalk to shadow the word January.

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you'll visit again soon.

God Bless You!!!! Peggy

Digistamps4Joy Challenge Mid-month post

Design team B always posts mid-month for the DS4J Challenge. January's challenge is Anything Goes with a twist of "All About Love".  My card is all about my little Max.  I asked Margy Kieser, the artist of this image to draw a Maltese because I couldn't find one that I liked.  So she drew these two adorable digistamps.  I think the little boy looks just like my Max.  The female's name is Bella.  My neighbor has a dog that Max plays with.  Her name is Bella so I made a valentine for Max to give her
Card Supplies:
A2 Card Base
Background paper- K and Co. Smitten paperstack
Heart - an image from Cricut Design Space and embossed using Anna Griffin Love/Seasonal Embossing Folders
Image - Barney & Bella by Margy Kieser of Digistamps4Joy.
Image colored with Copics
Sentiment was also cut using Cricut Explore

As always thank you for stopping by today.  I love your comments.

God Bless You !!! Peggy

Gracellie Designs "Rose"

I think I love working with flowers more than anything.  You can use them for almost any type of card.  Roses tend to be my favorite. This one is a free image from Graciellie Designs.  I love the verse that's on it.  It's the verse we basically used to determine the name of our blog.  We do experience the Grace of God and His mercies new every morning.

Card Supplies:
A2 card base
Trellis - Anna Griffin All Hearts Dies
Rose & Sentiment - Graciellie Designs Rose 
Image colored with Copics

Thank you so much for visiting with me today.  I will have more for you soon.  DS4J  mid-month challenge is coming up.  I have been asked to be on Crafty Cardmakers design team.  I think that will be fun.  Plus, I have 2 brothers with birthdays this month.  That should keep me busy for a while.

Something happened to my blog template.  My heading and designs disappeared.  I thought I had it backed up but apparently I did not. I hope I can find it.  In the meantime I added another template.  It has jumbled all my side postings up so I will be working on it trying to fix it.

God Bless You!!! Peggy

Graciellie Design Card

Hi Everyone, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving & Christmas.  I took some time off and enjoyed family time.  The Monday after Christmas, my son and daughter-in-law surprised me with a visit. My grandson who lives in CA had come home and they brought him to see me.  I was ecstatic.  I didn't think I was going to get to see him this year.  

Have you seen the images drawn by Graciellie Designs.  They are really pretty.  I purchased a couple of them and decided to make a card.  I love how this one turned out. 

Card Supplies:
Round Card base - I made it by welding 2 circles in Cricut Design Space.
Image - In It's Time by Graciellie Designs
Image colored with Copics.  
I glued ruffled lace around the image.
The lavender doily is an image from Cricut Design Space.
Sentiment is part of the In It's Time stamp.

Thank you for visiting me today.  I hope you will let me know you're here.
