You can see the kits on the table ready for everyone to arrive and begin a day of crafting, snacking and fellowship. My kit is the one closest to you with the green lidded containers. I will need to show you mine later because I forgot to take a picture of it. The people in the background are Shanea (on right side) Tracy's daughter and Julie.
This was the sample that Shanea had with her kit. Isn't it a beautiful bracelet? I have never done anything like this so I was thrilled to give it a go.
I will post more pictures later in the week.
Remember if you have any cards (without glitter) laying around Operation Write Home would love to have them. In September they are holding a big birthday bash, why not consider joining in on the celebration. Check it out here.

I had a wonderful weekend with some crafting buddies from Pennywise Arts last weekend. I just wanted to share one picture with you today. This was a beautiful water fall we found. This picture does not do it any justice but let me tell you it was breathtaking. We were standing on an opposite cliff (right on the edge, thank goodness for fences) just taking in the splendor of God's creative hand.
I have a video but for some reason blogger just doesn't like it.
I hope you can experience the peace and awesome power of God's love for you today.

Here is a card made with a stamp from the $1 bin at a local craft store. I justed my colored pencils and OSM to color the image.
It is a fun and easy card. Why not try one yourself.

Here is another card I sent off to my mom. It is a CAS style card. I really like making this type of card. I hope you enjoy it.

I think this is my favorite card from the three for the CHA Envy challenge at Stamp TV.
The card size is 3 1/2 x 6 3/8
This was a fun card to make. I didn't have any dp paper with an ivory background that I liked so I used my buttercream ink pad to tone down the whiteness. I also changed the middle pearl for a silver sparkly gem that is not in this picture.
Bold Flowers - Gina K

I hope you enjoyed the three posts on my cards for the CHA envy challenge.

Here is the card I made for the CHA envy 2nd challenge. If you haven't been to Gina K's Stamp TV click on the link in my side bar.
Since I send a card to my mom everyday I have begun to write my message to her on a post it note so she can use the card to brighten someone elses day. This card measures 3 1/2 x 6 3/8 . I use this size the most so she can use the envelope size she has most handy.
Botanicals, Bold Flowers (the circles) - Gina K
Ink pads, Memento Tuxedo Black, Marvy Matchables #5 yellow
White & black cardstock - unknown
Stardust pen - Sakura
So there was an oops on this card. I thought I was coloring the flower dots with my Stardust pen but it didn't look right - I had used my white pen. I just colored over the top once I realized what I had done.
Have a wonderful day.
