Ah, Friend

I LOVE the clean and simple style and always try use this look when I am mailing cards. I don't want the card to get ruined by embellishments that poke out. No matter how hard I try the card never stays the same!

I have used the Eureka Stamp that is titled Hearts Flower Border.

I then used a rub-on from my scrap bin so I could fittingly send it to my friend.
I am sending more and more CAS cards out to keep in touch the "old-fashioned" way since our move, but I love it. I can sit at the table and write a letter while my girls practice their letters too.  :)

Now if you haven't - please go on over to Eureka Stamps now and check them out!

Their scripture stamps are awesome and I love to use them in CAS cards espcially!

I used their stamp Delight

Can't get much more simple than that!

Can you tell I love verse stamps and CAS cards?

QKR Love Blog Hop

Hello All!  It is that time again! QKR Stampede is having a Blog Hop in the theme of Love!

I am using another stamp that is of my little turtle friend!
He is so stinking cute I don't think I will ever get enough of him!

I used the stamp Love Is Kind
which you can get in both digital or rubber!

I love to use my scraps, so I pulled the paper from my scrap bin and did a spiral edge punch from Stampin' Up! and added some fun buttons!

Isn't he just fun?

Birthday Girl

I have another CAS card to share with you today! 
I tend to keep some of my birthday cards very simple, especially ones that I am sending to those who are int he hospital or are elderly, or overseas.  
I do it for postage reasons and for the fun of simplicity.
I always make sure to use a really thick card stock when I make my cards this simple.

The title of this stamp is fittingly Birthday Girl 
and on the inside I used the sentiment titled I Wish You Love which you can get in rubber or digital!

Oh My! A Moose!

A Moose - How fitting for our new life in Alaska?
I loved him from the moment I saw him at Eureka Stamps
His fun and friendly mane is full of love and I tried to showcase that as best as I could - but I bet we could all come up with an amazing way that is fitting for our projects! Why don't you try helping out the
Hearty Moose with your own style?

I had fun using some scrap paper and tried to go some what monochromatic and manly with the browns.

Biblical Impressions Winter Blog Hop!

Who doesn't love winter?
Well, that would be me - but only since we moved here to Alaska in the last month.
I cam from North Carolina where it is still very much warm.
Here it is in the negatives and ALWAYS snowing.
I miss the warm.

So to get into warm thinking I used the super cute image Mitten Line
and used it with a favorite verse of mine - James 5:16 - fitting titled "Pray" in the store.

Have you prayed for someone today?

You should had come here from Barb

Now you will go to Jessica!

Biblical Impressions Design Team Member Here!

I couldn't be happier to announce that I am a part of the Biblical Impressions Design Team!
I was honored and excited as I love to use scripture on my cards and to send to people I have been praying for. I may not always come across as the typical Christian - but I do have a growing faith and love of prayer - as I know first handed it works.

Here is another one of my smaller cards that I can slip into someone's book, or their pocket, or something.  I like to leave them so people know I have been praying for them without trying to be thanked for it. It isn't something we should need recognition for, we should just be doing it.

I used the Medium Sunflower Image - which can also be ordered in large.  I also used the verse
1 Thes 5:11.

Have you prayed for anyone today?

QKR Stampede Design Team Member

Hello again!
I am so happy to tell you that I am also a member of the QKR Stampede Design Team!
They have some of the most adorable and lovable stamps you could ever find!

I am showcasing my most favorite of them all and he is also going to be placed in the lunch box of my husband to let him know he is my favorite :)

The title of this stamp is Pucker Up
And how could you not smile when you see him with open arms?

I keep these types of notes small just because I know Nick doesn't want anything he can't put in a pocket. I also know that he is not the type to appreciate the ribbon, brads, and fancy things that can be used.

I just let him know I love him and keep it simple.

Eureka Blog Hop = Love

Hello Everyone!
Sorry to be gone for sooo long - but I am back with a great Blog Hop with Eureka Stamps!

This is the first blog hop of the year so we are so excited to showcase stamps in the theme of Love and/or Valentine's Day since it is coming faster than any of us want to talk about!
Eureka Stamps has some great images - rubber and digital that you can choose from!

Today I am showcasing a project that I am working on for my nephew and niece for their Valentine's care package. See we recently moved to Alaska so we have to think of things in advance to make sure they arrive on time!  We packed up white paper bags (from Wal-Mart on clearance!) with goodies of all sorts and decided the theme would be "Showering Them With Love"

Here is a close up of the stamp itself.
It is called Raining Hearts
I opted for the large rubber version to make sure I could color it vibrantly with some Crayola markers. I know the kids would squeal at the bright colors!

 Please be sure to check out the other girls of the awesome Design Team!
