My beautiful flowers are from Countryside Bouquet Deluxe that I stamped on white card stock. Colored with various Copic markers an then cut around the edges. Once cut out I popped them up on dimensionals and added a white frame to the back drop over some gingham orange paper. My sentiment was stamped on vellum and wrapped around the bottom of the bouquet with a few flourishes jewels to finish it off. Voila!

Sail away with me


Good morning! If you haven't noticed I adore the latest release from WOJ as of late. Besides these are for the Ronald McDonald house card collection I am working on. The kids adore Henry and so do I! I have for you  Helmsman Henry. Who can resist this fun little sailor? I have him on white card stock and colored with various Copic markers. Wrapped a bit of twine around the end to add a charm from the Pirate's Treasure charm jar. Added a fun edge with the Postage Stamp Die-Light along the right edge a bit. Voila! Enjoy your day!

CAS Watercolor Tulips


Good morning. This didn't quite turn out like I had it pictures in my head, it was much softer feeling. These Tulips from  Dynamic Duos are my favorite, they are stamped onto card stock and water colored with my aqua pen. A simple kraft base layered added with a few pearls. Voila!
Quite busy as the kids go back to school next week, so last minute things to get done for their first day. It is always enjoyable for them to see all their friends again that we didn't see over the summer. A new fresh year of learning and fun. I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Don't forget about my Blog Candy, you still have time!!!  Have a great day!

ODBD Walking With Jesus treats

Happy Friday and welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs Rewind of our August Release! I have a few youth group creations to share with you. Be sure to check out all the creations on the ODBD Blog from the Design Team and to see all of the August release up close!


My first project is a Truffle Bag that I created with using the Envelope Punch Board. I stamped a few sentiments from Walk With Jesus on the tabs and tied it closed with the ODBD Flip Flop Dies. This designer paper is from Blushing Rose Paper collection. The girls are going to love these. I have a Truffle Bag Tutorial if you are interesting in creating your own.


These are for the boys as they are much more interested in the chocolate. Against I used the ODBD Flip Flop Dies the smaller ones in kraft card stock and the larger for the sentiment from Walk With Jesus. My designer paper used is from Christian Faith Collection. I hope you have time to check out my Truffle Bag Tutorial and create your own.
