Praise the Name of God

Each time I think about praising 
the name of God in song, I remember 
family get togethers and how my family
would gather to sing 
old hymns around my Mamaw's 
antique grand piano as she or my mother
played the music and the harmonies from
family began to melt together.

Each time I read this Scripture, I
remember fondly those days and 
feel so blessed to have such a 
rich Christian heritage...
and I give Thanks!

This digital scripture art was created with
My Digital Studio and can be saved and printed
to fit and 8"x10" frame.

Walking with God...

Sometimes we need a little

You know it and I know it...
we get in a rut and forget to exercise...

But I encourage you to grab your music 
and your walking shoes and get moving...

Although our physical health is important - - -

Once in a Lifetime...

This card was created from a great little stamp  
that is part of the See Ya Later Stamp Set 
in the 2014 Sale-A-Bration  from Stampin' Up!

The color combination of Cherry Cobbler, Summer Starfruit 
and Basic Gray is quite attractive.  I used the 
Decorative Dots Embossing folder to deboss 
the layer of block colors.  In Color Stitched Ribbon in 
Summer Starfruit was added as an accent under the 
Whisper White layer for the Sentiment that was stamped in
Basic Gray and accented with the Red Glimmer heart.

I hope your day is filled with Love!

Key to My Heart

Today's feature for 14 Days of Love
is elegant and quick to create.

This 5" square card of Whisper White has a
layer of Designer Series Paper from the Fresh Prints 
Paper Pack adhered with Dimensionals.

Next, using a great set of 
Spellinders Heart Circles Dies, 
I created the Real Red foundation.
I then added a Heart shape cut 
with the Hearts Framelits
and adhered a Golden Lock Plate 
cut from a Gold Foil Sheet.
To do this I started with a square and
punched a Tiny Tag shape
 out of the middle
and then crafted the outer shape 
to look like a lock plate.

Both were embossed with the 
Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder 
before being adhered to the 
heart foundation with Dimensionals.

The key was cut using the 
Gold Foil Sheet again and
Spellbinders Lacy Hearts Dies.

Notice that the 3 mini hearts on the 
Whisper White Heart were the punched 
hearts that came out of the 
Hearts Circles Die of Real Red.

I hope today's share of Love warms your heart!

A Little Valentine Shaker....

I love Valentine's Day almost as much as Christmas
 and I love this cute Valentine Shaker Card.

I used some scrapbooking paper 
I had for the background,
added a heart shaped window 
by punching the lower left corner.
Then I added a transparency sheet
and punched a ton of tiny hearts.  

I then placed Dimensionals on the backside of the
heart shaped window in a solid line
 creating an encasement to hold my 
teeny tiny little hearts and I closed it with a scrap 
of white paper to match my card foundation.

Create a flag with the Be My Valentine Stamp from 
Delightful Dozen stamped in Real Red and
 punch the edge with the Full Heart Punch.

I then created a frame for the window 
using my heart punch and a heart shaped frame lit.
I embossed the framelit  and added the 
banner before adding it to the window - 
and then I dressed it up with a little bling!

To finish, add the windowed layer 
to the card foundation.

Enjoy a little Love today!

Love you to the Moon....

What a sweet thought - - - 
"I love you to the Moon and back!"

I love to use scraps and this card 
was the perfect way to use some 
paper scraps from the Fresh Prints Designer Series 
Paper Stack out of my "magic box". 

I made the larger moon by cutting the circle 
using the Circles Framelits by Stampin' Up
and then I ran it through the Big Shot with the 
Decorative Dots Textured Embossing Folder
(using the debased side).  I then sponged Basic Gray 
around the edges and over the "craters" in the moon.

I punched the small hearts from the Small Heart Punch 
and the banner tab came from the Petal Cone die 
and it was cut from the new 
2013-15 Stampin' Up! InColor Coastal Cabana. 
(LOVE that color!)

When making the oval for the 
I used Whisper White Cardstock and 
Stampin' Up Markers in the colors:
Real Red, Summer Starfruit, 
Basic Gray and Bermuda Bay.

Enjoy a little love today!

Cherubs & Golden Arrows

I love the way this sweet and EASY 
Valentine card came together...

I started with a 5" x 10" card base of 
Marina Mist scored in half with a coordinating piece
of scrapbooking paper that is 4.75" square.

I found these sweet heart shaped doilies 
and knew right away I would use them for a card.

I added the cherub and golden arrow cut from 
a big shot die using Pink Pirouette Cardstock and
the Gold Foil Sheets from Stampin' Up!

Using the Real Red Ink - I sponged the edges of the 
cherub to create a distressed effect - Viola! - sweet card!

I hope you love today's share of love!
