From the Heart - Heartfelt Sympathy

Hi Everyone!
I want to share with you a card from a special designer, Faith Skrdla. I discovered From the Heart designs just over a year ago. I fell in love with Faith's creations and participated in a couple of her challenges.  The blog posts began to slow down, and it was the end of the summer that she shared with us her battle with brain cancer. Unfortunately,  she lost this battle the end of July. I am sad that she  has passed.  I know that God has a purpose for every thing.  It is not for us to understand why but for us to trust that this is part of his plan. Faith has touched so many lives with her God-given talent. Here's is my card to honor Faith's talent and her life. There has been a Gofundme account set up for her family at...https://www.gofundme.com/faith-skrdla039s-family-support

Someone please tell me where the month of June went!  We were so busy and it's like, where did it go?? We had birthdays (5), an anniversary, Father's Day, 2 out of town weekends and POOF! It's over!

Little Red Wagon #398 Dogs or Cats?

Hi Everyone!
We have a new challenge this week at Little Red Wagon - Dogs or Cats? Unfortunately we lost our little Jack Russell, Jaxson this past February.  I laugh and say he was my 3rd child!   My husband got him for me for Valentine's day 14 years ago. He said I needed something to nurture since the kiddos were leaving home!  I still miss him greatly.  We've decided not to get another puppy for now, I don't think we'd find another pup like Jax.  We have a gray tabby - Fitz, and we are now officially a cat family! He amuses us - when he wants to!
So for this week's challenge Jan wants us to use a dog or a cat, (or both) on your creation! Join us in the challenge, you can link up your entry at Little Red Wagon. I can't wait to see if there are more dogs or more cats! You have until next Tuesday to participate!

Because I found these adorable stamps at the recent Rubber Stamp Convention in Mesa, Arizona.  I couldn't wait to make some birthday cards and Father's Day cards.  I created the background with a cube stamp that had the net, minnow, can of worms and used the bucket of minnows for the accent piece.  You can purchase accessories for this cute little bear, too.  I bought several different hats & shoes to mix them up, there are so many possibilities!  Head over to the Little Red Wagon blog and check out the manly cards from the design team.  You can join in with the fun too, you have until next Tuesday to play.

Little Red Wagon Challenge #386

Hi Everyone!
This month is going crazy fast! We are ready for another challenge here at Little Red Wagon.  This week our hostess is Kate and the theme of this challenge is 'It's clear to Me.'  She wants us to use a window or a transparency on our creation.  I was trying to kill 2 birds with one stone, because I just don't know where time goes!
This is my take that I made for my grandsons for St. Patrick's Day.  They loved the little prizes, but really they just loved the chocolate! And I love that I could use this little project for the challenge and their little St Pat's prize!
Here are the supplies I used for this project ~
Silhouette window box cut file
DigiStamp Boutique Jolly St Pat's digi stamp
Copic Markers
Round Circle & Horseshoe punch
Gold glitter paper & scrap of 12x12 patterned paper
Yellow ribbon & Gold Stickles
And Chocolate - of course!

The Paper Players Challenge #334

Hi Everyone!
I have been busy in my crafty room.  My hubby needed several cards for his coworkers.  Unfortunately he needed a sympathy card as well.  I had this pretty paper in my crafty stash and it happens to be double sided.   The patterned floral paper is on the one side and the inset with the solid yellow is on the flip side of that paper.  Paper coordination mission - accomplished!  I used a round scalloped die and a butterfly die with the black paper.  I dressed it up with some sequins as well.  The inside sentiment reads, With Sympathy.  I was pleased with the outcome of this card and made up several of them. 
I am entering this card into The Paper Players challenge Cut it Out! All you need to do for this challenge is to use an element that is either a die cut, punch, or scissors! 


Thanks for looking!  I love your comments!
