Research Question

     I'm working on my next book, and I need some help. Thinking back to when you were 5-10 years old, what one wish did you have that you really hoped would come true? Did it come true? Do you still wish for it?

DCWV Stack-a-holic Card Sketch Challenge

      A post with a card two days in a row! Woohooo! I had  a free day and am spending the entire day in my studio. The day is almost over, but it's been a really fun day of creating.
     I do so enjoy when you stop by to see what I have made.
     Today's card is for the May Stack-a-holic Challenge at DCWV. I used the CHICK CHAT Stack for my card. Even the burlap was included in the stack! I must say I have never liked working with burlap. It unravels and frays terribly. But, just wait until you use this burlap!!! It has a paper backing so it does not fray and it's super easy to adhere to things. So, so happy about that. Thanks a million DCWV people!
     The roses and sentiment tag were also in the stack - well, everything was in the stack. I did a little fussy-cutting here and there and voila - a beautiful, easy card! Oh, I did add my own navy blue matting. I think matting panels really makes them pop.
     Here's the sketch DCWV gave us to work with along with the link to get all the rules. You still have oodles of time to join us. I'll be looking forward to seeing what you create!
     May the Lord be glorified by the work of my hands,



Sketch Challenge ODBDSLC238

     Thanks so much for stopping by today. It feels like forever since I've shared a card here. I've really missed my paper and glue!
     I created this card for the sketch challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs this week.
     I used the following ODBD products:
          paper: Rustic Beauty Collection
          stamps:  Little Things
          dies:  Fancy Foliage
     Here's a close-up of the sentiment tag. I love this quote!
          There are still a few days before the deadline. Why don't you come play with us? Here's the sketch ODBD gave us to work with and the link to the rules.
     May the Lord be glorified by the work of my hands,


DCWV Stack-a-holic Card Challenge, April 2015

Update: Excited to share that my card made it onto the winners list. Thanks so much DCWV!

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. I'm taking a quick break from working on the manuscript for my next book in order to post this card for the latest challenge at DCWV.
    I used The Good Wood Stack from Die Cuts With a View to create my birthday card.
     Designer Tip: The wood patterns I chose to work with got lost on top of each other in my original design. So, I used some basic black cardstock to mat all my panels and geometric shapes to make them pop. It looks so much better.
    Designer Tip: I struggled to get a good picture of my card. I took a lot of photos, but they all looked like a dreary black & white photo. I put colored paper underneath my card, and I finally got some good photos.
     There is still plenty of time if you want to enter your own card in the challenge. Here's a copy of the sketch we had to work with and the address for all the rules.
     May the Lord be glorified by the work of my hands,
