DCWV Stack-a-holic Card Challenge, Oct 2015

UPDATE: So excited to have my card among the list of winners! Thanks so much DCWV!
    Thanks so much for stopping in today. Hope your day is off to a good start. Mine is sunny and bright after 10.2" rain in two days. So thankful for the rain.
     Today, I have a card for the DCWV Stack-a-holic Challenge. I used the Happy Day Stack for my card. It's a new stack and I love every sheet of it.
     Was not sure I would be able to play this month. I spent the last several weeks with Mom who is in a nursing home. She is really struggling, so to those friends of mine who pray, will you lift her up to the Lord today? I can feel your prayers already. Love you all so much. I digress . . .
     There are still a couple of days to join in on all the fun. Here's the link to the rules and a copy of the sketch we had to work with.
     May the Lord be glorified by the work of my hands,

Picture Book Idea Month

     I've been out of town for a few weeks visiting Mom. I'm back just in time to be a part of PiBoIdMo - Picture Book Idea Month. Our challenge, hosted by picture-book author, Tara Lazar, is to come up with a new picture-book idea every day in November. Not only that, but picture-book authors, agents and others from the industry will have things to share with us each day. I'm excited to participate this year. If you have ever thought about writing for young children, you might want to check out this event.

Magazine Monday #118

     It's kind of like getting free paper!!! Some really lovely designs are inside the security envelopes that our bills and other mailings come in.
     I save them all. Just look at what you can create! They also make beautiful flowers. I used six different envelopes for this card that I'm submitting to the Magazine Monday #118 challenge at PaperCrafter's Corner. Check out the inspiration cover and link to the rules below.
     I was inspired by the orange / coral colors against a dark background in this week's cover and the way things are mixed all around each other like a vine growing through it all.
     I used dies from Our Daily Bread Designs (Fancy Foliage) and circle dies from Spellbinders. The sentiment stamp comes from Unity Stamps (. . . bright, happy you). I heat embossed the sentiment tag with black pigment and clear embossing powder.

DCWV Stack-a-holic Card Challenge, Sept 2015

     UPDATE: So excited to find my card on the list of winners! Thanks so much DCWV!
      Time for another DCWV Stack-a-holic Card Sketch Challenge already! The time if flying by here.
     I used the The Good Wood Stack to create this Thanksgiving card. There are just so many beautiful wood grains in that stack. I used Fiskars' Quilt Star to punch my embellishments. I cut two of each different one and then stacked them with foam tape.
     There is still lots of time if you want to play along with us. Here's the link to all the rules and a copy of the sketch here too.

     Thanks so much for stopping in. I'll be looking forward to seeing your card on the DCWV Facebook page.
    May the Lord be glorified by the work of my hands,
