CAS(e) this sketch #5

Hi again!  I had a bit more time than I thought so here is post two for today!  I made this card for the CAS(e) This Sketch challenge and it will be the perfect wedding card for a friend of mine who is getting married in a couple of weeks' time.  This is a great challenge, I really like the sketches they do here...well done, Jackie!

I used washi tape for the sentiment strip and three little buttons.  Simples!


Thanks for looking again!

CASology #18 - Orange

Hello folks!  This is my effort for the current challenge over at CASology which is to use the cue word 'Orange'.  This is a sympathy card that I made using the little embosslits from Stampin' Up! and also Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things.

I'll be back later with another Clean and Simple card for another challenge.  See you later!

Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #122

Bountiful Baskets Additions

Hello everyone!  Today I have a card for you which I'm entering into WMS Challenge #122.  I am using a little set that I'd forgotten that I have, called Bountiful Baskets Additions.  The little pocket was cut out using a die from WPlus9.  This is an American company but if you go here to Make the Day Special you can purchase them in the UK.  Love these!

Love Notes Die

 I love pumpkins and I especially like the sentiment on this card.  Sometimes we have difficult situations to face in life, but the Lord tells us in the Scriptures to be thankful at all times, not just when things are going well for us.  Not an easy thing to do but we must look for the positive things amid our trials and FIND something to be thankful for, even when we feel there is nothing good.  This is a challenge in itself, but the Lord gives His people the grace they need for every situation. 

Here is the sketch for this week's challenge:

I apologise for the poor quality of this photo, but I had to take it at night and I'm not allowed to open my new Light Studio Box from my son until my birthday!

Take care and God bless!

25th Birthday!

Good morning!  I just wanted to post a card for a couple of challenges before I go out for coffee with my daughter and her husband.  It will be his birthday on Sunday and I wanted to make a card that has an autumn feel to it, so here it is.

I am entering this card into two challenges -
The image is a Digi Stamp from Meljens Designs and the little embossed leaf is Joy Crafts.  I coloured this with Promarkers.

I love these autumn colours.  Even though it is very cold outside, these colours are inclined to give a feeling of warmth and comfort, just another one of God's blessings that He sends to cheer us along the way!
