Be My Warm and Fuzzy Valentine

These bags were made for our Ashton Nursing Home ministry.  Our church members gave generous donations and items to fill the bags such as robes, socks, houseshoes, throws, knitted caps, t-shirts, hats, lotion, denture cups, toothbrushes, and word search puzzles for their Christmas worship.  We had more than enough.  Due to a last minute donation of t-shirts and socks, instead of holding them to next year we decided to give them out on Valentine's Day.  So with that said, I designed the front of the paper bags from a sketch by Tuesday Morning Sketches.  The paper bags were a freebie from my Paper Crafting Sister Rhoda.  She placed them in her donate box and somehow I knew they would come in good use.

A pair of socks was wrapped up in a t-shirt of various sizes. 
Below are how they were folded to put in the bag.

There are a total of 32 Warm and Fuzzy Valentines prepared!

Here's a close up of the paper bag.  
The message says "God understands our prayers even when we can't find the words to say them."

Do, Love, Walk

This is the second card I made in Scraps of Color Friday Night Chat 30 minute card making.  The instructions were to make a bookmark, card or layout using the last tool you purchased. My latest purchase was the best cutting scissors by Fiskars and a Martha Stewart circle cutter.  I've had my Creative Memories circle cutter since 1997.  Since Michaels has all her tools and scrapbooking products half off, I thought it was time to purchase another one.  The first card was done over after the 30 day challenge.  I embossed the scripture to make it look more precise and hand wrote the banners to reflect the words: Do, Love and Walk.
This is the 30 minute version below

Here are my latest purchases.

Ecclesiastes 3:1

Here's my take on MOJO 433 sketch.  Maxine Johnson was our Friday Night Chat hostess for Scraps of Color this month.  There were three challenges and I made it home for the last two challenges.  I look forward to having fun and chatting with my Papercrafting sisters!  Unfortunately I don't get to chat much.  After I make a card, I'm clearing space to make another one.   This is my take on the second challenge.  We had to make a card based on the letters O-L-D in 30 minutes.  I used Orange, Lace, and Distress edges.

In Sympathy

As chair of Courtesy with my sorority I make a lot of cards.  I had four to send with condolences and wanted to use the same image.  Unfortunately I'm not sure where I purchased her from. It may be a Rubbernecker stamp.  If you know, please let me know.  I used a Sizzix side card die for the first card.  The rubber stamp is embossed on the last three cards.

XOXO Hugs and Kisses

We were snowed in this weekend and I took advantage of the time to make a few projects.  The first is a mini pink paper bag (with close ups) and the second is a card.  The image on the paper bag is Chelsea Hugging Legs by Make it Crafty. The paper patterns are by Recollection.

 Close up of the flower I made with added stickles.

Here's a card for one of my sweet sorors who was just released from the hospital.

Love you Bro

My brother moved to Nashville years ago and has adapted to the country music and cowboy boots.  He's going to love this card I'm sending him for Valentine's Day.   The digital is by Robert Jackson.   The pattern behind the image is actually a fabric sample.  Rope is tied around it with a loop to compliment the rope in his hand. Thanks for looking.
