Blossom Branch Sympathy Card

 Hello, glad you stopped by. Were having a few days of cooler weather here in Indiana. Almost feels like fall. 

I have had to make a few sympathy cards lately and I needed another one so I wanted to share with you the card that I made.




The flowers are called Blossom Branch. It's part of a digital stamp set called Do Not Worry from Graciellie Designs.

It is such a pretty set. This my first time coloring the flowers. I uploaded it to Design Space and had the Cricut cut it out. 

I used Spectrum Noir alcohol markers to color it. The card came together pretty quickly after I got the flowers colored and cut because I used an embossing folder. I was afraid that the card would look to plain, but after it was done I was o.k. with it. 

That's my post for today. I have a lot to do. Hope you enjoyed your visit. On my next post I will be sharing another recipe. So hope you can make it back.

 Please leave a comment, so that I can come visit you. Blessings to you, Cindy

Crocheted Magnetic Note Holder & Winnings

  Hello paper crafter's. Glad you stopped by. We are now in August (The dog days of Summer). These are the days that I am thankful for air conditioning. I can't do the heat.

I want to share a little project that I made to send to my niece for her birthday. She is in the Air Force. (Now a Captain) So I don't get to see her very often. 

 It's a magnetic note holder for her to put on her refrigerator. We both love to Crochet. She also loves to knit, so I thought she would really enjoy this. 

Was really easy to make. I really like the crocheting that I did along the side and a great way to use up some of my little clothes pins. 

Now my daughter is wanting one. So I am planning on making her one. I'm thinking in a coffee theme. 

Also wanted to share that I won a $50.00 gift card from Pretty Pink Posh and wanted to share with you all what I picked out. 

I am so beyond excited. I can't wait to create some cards with these pretty stamps and dies. 

Have you ever checked out Pretty Pink Posh? If not, you should. They have stamps, dies, stencils and more. 

Here is a link to there shop.

That's my post for today.  Happy day to you and stay safe!

Don't Worry about Anything Card

 Hello Crafty friends, Hope all is well with you. During these crazy and uncertain times that we are living in, I am so glad to have a hobby to keep me busy and that brings me so much joy. I'm sure you all feel the same way.

I just found out that someone else that I know has the virus. Praying for her and her family. She already struggles with so many health issues and recently fell down stairs and broke her neck. Please keep her in your prayers. I will be making her a card soon.

Today I want to share with you all a word of encouragement card that I made someone from my Church that has been having complications from a kidney transplant. She has been admitted back into the hospital.

I love this Bible verse and I thought it was a perfect verse to send to her to let her know not to worry and that God knows our needs.

  I colored the flowers with Stampin Up Blends in Calypso Coral. The leaves were colored with Spectrum Noir. Also used a touch of yellow for the centers.

Thanks for stopping by and would love for you to leave a comment. Happy Day to you. Stay safe and stay crafty!
