Hey Friends!

I know I've been so inconsistant lately here on my blog.  Well if truth be known, I've been pretty inconsistant in a lot of things lately.  I know most people would not be so open and admit that, but if you've been around here long, you know that one thing I am is up front with you all.  After all, I feel like my blog readers are my friends and if you can't be up front with friends, who can you be?  Right?  Guess this first part is a little confessional, but I find it theraputic to share my heart and where I'm at in my life.  Actually I wish I know where I was in my life.  I'm not going to lie.  Fifty hasn't been a great number.  Lots of changes with the biggest being "the change".  Some of you can maybe relate?  With all that being said, I'm so thankful that one thing in my life stays consistant and that is God's love for me.  He loves me through all this and for that I'm so blessed.  He loves me even on those days when I'm not very unloveable.  That in and of itself is an amazing thing.  Remember that when you feel unloveable....God still loves us no matter what.  He loved us so much that He sent His son to die for us. (John 3:16)  Amazing love, how can it be?

Well if you've stuck with me through that, thanks, if not so much then I hope you at least enjoy the stamping I'm about to share with you.  I'm not even sure what I've shared lately and frankly I'm not in the mood to go back and look.  LOL!  I'm going to clean my desktop up a little and show you a few projects.  Enjoy!

This is a frame that we made at my Create for Christmas class in November.  I don't think I've shared this with you.  This stamp is available yet through January 31, 2014.  It comes in clear mount only 134811 and sells for $6.95.  I just love this verse so this is one that will stay in my collection.  The frame came from Walmart and was a great match to our Gold Foil Paper 132622 and sells for $3.95 for 2 12 x 12 sheets.  Gold is REALLY in right now and I love it!!!  Have you noticed all the gold in the Occasions catalog?  I love that Stampin'Up! keeps up with the trends.

This card is one that I sent out to all those who placed an order in December.  I had said anyone who placed an order during December would receive a handstamped card from me and this is the one I made.  The stamp set and DSP are both available in the Occasions catalog. (So Very Grateful wood 133050 $22.95 or clear 133053 $16.95)  (Fresh Prints DSP stack 132996 $6.95)

This card here is one I was just playing around with.  I had purchased just before Christmas the Script Background stamp.  I've wanted this stamp for so long and decided to finally get it.  Yes, we all know what that means.  It will probably retire come May.  LOL!  I saw where Patty Bennett had used the Watercolor Wonder DSP  132994 $10.95 and used the Petite Petals punch 133322 $12.95 to just punch out the petals from this beautiful paper.  I popped them up on dimensionals and added some Self-adhesive Pearls for a quick and easy card.  The flourish part comes from the set Everything Eleanor.

Well if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.  I would love to help you.  Thanks for stopping by and I will really try and work on that consistancy thing.  ;)
