It's Finally Friday and I got a lot on my schedule.  I got an early start this morning in the craft room and thought I would create a card for a customer using this adorable Phoebe digital by Robert Jackson.  The sentiment is one of my favorite Verve's stamp.

About last night

Last night I played with my latest stamp purchases.  Love, love, love this cute Unity Stamp set called 'Nia Girl'!  This set screams Support and I can't wait to create more cards.


The cross and sentiment on this card is a sneak peek from my new Verve 'Faith Medley' stamp set.  The set is filled with Inspiration.....Oh the possibilities.  I can't wait to plunge in with the rest!

Junior's canvas

This canvas was painted for my nephews room.  I can't wait until he visits us so he can play in the craft studio.  I'm going to try and teach him some techniques. He's only four, but he's smart.  Can't wait to see what he creates.  Check out the close ups below.  My next project will be printing his photos so I can catch up with  his scrapbook album.

My mother thought the canvas was wood.  I had to show her the technique.  Acrylic paint was used on some of the chipboard letters to bring in the colors of the paper by DCWV paper stack All About Boys/Sports. 

I'm loving the embellishments I used.  Some are VERY old.  I used stickers, metals and paper stack.

This photo was taken when he was two years old.  He loved to travel with his basketball.
The photo is attached to the two clothes pins so we can up date it with new photos.  

He's learning this scripture.  The OCD in me was upset that the scripture wasn't centered so I had to include some star stickers to balance it off.  I might work on it again just to balance it off.  Anytime I can, I love to use my handwriting.

Check out these old embellishments!  I purchased them years ago.  The sentiment was from a scrapbook convention back in the day.  The metal was at  Michaels back in the day.  I love the textures from the cheesecloth and templates.

MOJO Monday Fever

Ever had an opportunity to use all your scraps with a card sketch?  That's exactly what I did using the rest of my My Minds Eye 6x6 Collectable paper pad.  MOJO Monday made it easy with their sketch. I added some cute little digis I colored and they are ready for mailing to brighten someone's day.

MOJO 495

Love getting in the groove making cards with the help of MOJO Monday.  I'm trying hard to use the stash I have before I go out and purchase another item.  It began May 1st, but yesterday (May 2nd) I manage to stop at Tuesday Morning and couldn't resist Pebbles Basics Cardmaking Pad 2.  I'm going to see how long I can endure for the rest of the month lol.  I pulled out Prima Time Traveler's Memories 6x6 papers, Recollection flowers and bling then added a little cheese cloth to create this card.

Canvas Sign

On my Craft to do list was another canvas sign like the one you see on the right side of my blog.  It was gifted to my fellow crafter Rhoda.  It went so well in her craft room, which looks like a beach house or tropical escape.  My craft room is red/white/black and I wanted to incorporate those colors.  Of course I had to include 'My Scrapbook Prayer' that I wrote in 2008 on the road home after leaving a Scrapbook Extravaganza in Little Rock, AR.   Here's the canvas with a few close ups.  Everything is from my stash.

95 and counting

This mixed media canvas was gifted to my Auntie Granny.  She's 95 years old still living independently and doing well. Auntie Granny is on the Mother Board at church and loves her hats.  She's known for her preserves, cakes and chow chow. We celebrated with a birthday party on Easter weekend and hope we can keep counting to age 100!  I used a watercolor palette from Michaels.  Love the purple!

Penguin Love

You must agree these are the most adorable penguins.  I used a variety of products with this card.  The penguin stamp set is by Stampendous using Spectrum Noir markers.  The Sizzix framelit step up card was the perfect way to create my scenery. Martha Stewart snow flake punch is the embellishment you can't see on the first photo. I sprinkled a little Stickles on them to make them pop. I can't believe it took me three hours to create the card, but I'm pleased with it.

MOJO Monday to the rescue!

Wow what a busy holiday season and it was truly hard to get back into the craft of things.  After decorating 12 Christmas trees and decors and a week with my nephew I needed a couple of weeks to recuperate.  Oh what fun!!  I LOVE the holiday season and now since the New Year has come, it's time to get back into cards and layouts.  Yes I said layouts.  My nephew was disappointed his album was not updated.  I started with my first card of the year thanks to MOJO Monday.
