Merry Christmas

Hi! It's the week before Christmas and I'm super excited, because this weekend I'm heading back to visit my parents.  I can hardly wait to have a good break and see the family.

It's the last Inspired Stamps project for the year.  And, I thought it appropriate to share a Christmas card.  Here's wishing you a Blessed Christmas and a Wonderful New Year!!  May the Lord's blessings and love surround you and your family.  Safe travels and hope you'll have a lovely time with family and friends.

This is the cutest Shepherd boy, and the Scripture is from Luke 2:11.

Here's a closer look at the Shepherd boy:
Thank you for visiting me.
Best wishes for 2014!

Riding into the Sunset

I was inspired to colour this gorgeous image today.  Woke up this morning and had these colours on my mind :)  Yeah, I know, I have not played any Unity Colour challenge before, I think, so here's my first.

The image says it all, I suppose, and there's no need for any embellishments to finish off the card.  Easy!

Maybe, I'll try the sketch challenge next.. LOL!

Have a great day!

Most Wonderful Time of the Year...

Love this time of the year!!  It's what I look forward to most when I was a kid and still do today.  I love everything about Christmas - the meaning and reason why we celebrate it, and the precious time I get to spend with my family.

It's been a week of Christmas cardmaking, and for today's Unity FWF, I am sharing a card made with this wonderful Christmas sentiment set, Everything Christmas

Love the set, and wish I have more time to make really good use of the set.  This year, I've not been organised with my Christmas cards :)

I used the leftovers of patterned paper and some blossom trim on the card.  Really quick and easy.

Thank you for visiting me.  Hope you'll have a great weekend!

Snowman Notecard

My Inspired Stamps project today is based on the theme "Anything Winter".  If it's winter where you are, I hope you are keeping yourself warm and cosy.  It's hard to think about winter where I am - we just hit 32 C today, and it's so warm :)

I think of snow when I see the word winter, so here's my little notecard, with the cute snowman from the set Snowmen.  I stamped the snowman with copic markers and cut him out with an ornament die.  Then, I added a little twine bow and sponged some blue ink around the ornament shape.

It's an easy design and could be mass produced as a little notecard to go along with Christmas presents. 

I hope you'll click over to the Inspired Stamps blog to see more Winter ideas from the Design team.

Thank you for visiting me.
Have a great day!

Let Beauty Surround You

Friday is here again, and I'm so glad to share another Unity card.  This card is for a friend's birthday.  I used the old favourite set Quiet Essence, and a sentiment from an Itty Bitty.

The flower image was stamped on a natural sticky back canvas and coloured with copic markers.  Then I assembled the card and added a little butterfly clothes peg at the top of the card.

Linking this with Unity FWF, and I can't wait to see the rest of the projects shared by my crafty friends.

Have a great weekend!

Scripture card with Inspired Stamps

Hello, hope you're having a good week!  Today's Inspired Stamps project is pairing an HLO image with a 2x2 Scripture.  I used the super cute HLO : Sincerely Girl and the Scripture 1 John 3:1.

Here's the card:
The little girl is so adorable, and I love the little flowers in the set too.  She is coloured with Copic markers and the Scripture sentiment is inked with red and black ink for some interest.  The card was rather plain and so I added a paper bow to finish it off.

I hope you'll check out the Inspired Stamps blog for more inspiration from the rest of the Design Team.

Thanks for stopping by today.
