Rainy Monday

It is a rainy and somewhat cooler day today. Praise the Lord. We need the rain and the cooler temperature is welcomed! We have been pretty hot the last few weeks.

Last night I made this card for my cousin who is battling cancer. His birthday is on Wednesday and I wanted to wish him a happy day. Hopefully he will be able to go home from the hospital before Wednesday so he can celebrate at home.

I used my old favorite stamp set Lovely as a Tree--what a GREAT set! The cardstock is Kraft, Whisper White and Parisian Summer Speciality DP. Elegant Cheer was used for the sentiment and the inside sentiment came from God's Blessings set. I used the scallop border punch and the corner rounder to give the card a special touch. The velvet ribbon and hardware finishes it off. Hope you like it!
Here is another card I made over the weekend. A young lady in my church is getting married in October and we had a shower for her last night before service. It was a perfect opportunity to play with my new Great Friend set and Cottage Garden DP. I also used my new matchbox die. I am loving all this new stuff!!!!
With both kids out of the house and hubby travelling this month, I expect to get soooo much accomplished in my stamp and sew room. Who knows, I may even get around to sewing on my cards! Until tomorrow when I hope to have a sewing project to show--remember God loves you!

TGIF finally! I think it is time to start making my Christmas card stash. I used the Keep Christmas set that recently retired. It is a great set to water color. I used my SU markers and blender pen. The card stock is Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and Ruby Red. I also used retired Holiday Treasure designer paper. The yummy on this card is the gorgeous Old Olive wide striped ribbon. The image is popped up on dimensionals. This should get me started!

Today was a Mother/Daughter day for Robin and I. She will be heading back to college on Wednesday, so we are doing some last minute shopping and just hanging out. The summer went by way too fast! She will be starting her junior year and before we can turn around twice, she will be FINISHED!!!

I wanted to post two more Mojo 100 cards. Robin doesn't know it, but these are part of a gift I will be giving her on Wednesday. She loves to send cards and I know she will appreciate these.

Now, back to my creative studio to make some new cards to post tomorrow!
