Christmas Ornament

Well, I made this a while ago, but I didn't show you because I entered it in a Stampin-Up contest. But I found out today that I wasn't chosen. I must adnit that i'm dissappointed, but it is the first time that i've put my self out there like that. I can't wait to get the actual publication so I can see what beat me out ! Anyway I hope YOU enjoy it !

Wise Men Still Seek Him

Just a quick post before the rush of Sunday begins tomorrow. Sorry i've been so quiet lately. This is a simple layout, but it took me a while to gamsol the three wisemen. It was fun to color for a change. The paper is christmas paper from Stampin-up two years ago, so unfortunatly it's retired. Have a blessed Sunday and remember that wise men still seek Him !

My Mojo is Back !

I think it took me longer to decide what stamp set to use than to actually put this card together ! I was choosing so carefully because this card is for Julee's mojo challenge and I REALLY want to win one of he awesome stamps sets from her store, Verve Visual ! The paper is Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding, which she sells in her store. The stamp is retired S-U and the little page pebbles I got from Ellen Hutson's store. The snow flakes stamped on the Soft Sky paper are embossed with Iridescent ice e.p.
Since I don't have craft soft sky ink I dipped my stamp first in Versamark and then in the Soft Sky ink. This allows you to emboss the image just as if you used craft ink or Versamark. I don't think that it hurts your stamp pad to do this, but I clean my stamp after each time I stamp so i'm not going back into the Versamark with Soft Sky ink on my stamp. Hope this makes sense, have any questions just ask, have a great night !

The paper really did it all, but you wouldn't believe how long I stared at this before it actually came together. Well some days ya got it and some you don't ! The paper is Wonderland by Cosmo Cricket.

Lit'l Cowboy

I had a wonderful week. We hosted our churches first Missions conference, and the furtherest north one ever ! It was exciting to see the Lord stir the hearts of our people for the souls of people all around the world. We found that true J.O.Y. comes from putting Jesus first, Others second and Yourself last, joy. We heard from missionairies to Whales,and Italy and one I can not mention because of the dangerous state of that country and how they feel about christians. Thank God for a free country in which to live and serve Him !! There is so much in my heart, I can't quite find all the words to say. But with all that going on I hadn't had time to stamp. Usually when I neglect stamping or my blog for even a day,I get frustrated. But this week God put some things into perspective for me and stamping just didn't seem like such a high priority anymore. I know i'm rambling on, but I just know that if we would put God first He would bless us and give us the desires of our hearts.
Everything else i've made lately has seemed blah to me,I know because I rushed them just to stamp something to put up because I had neglected my blog for so long, but today I determined to put God first with Bible reading and prayer and then really give the kids my full attention with homeschool, we had fun actually and went above and beyond with some extra fun activities. Then to top it all off I had time to make this card and I really like how it turned our. Everything is T.A.C. But my point is that if you put God first he will make even your stamping projects turn out right !!!

Garden Silhouettes

I've been so out of the stamping mode lately that I decided to go back to an old favorite, watercolor stamping with the S-U watercolor crayons. I also brayered over the vellum with some lilac ink to color it a bit.
