Berry wreath - CCC #13


Happy Sunday to you!  It's time for Christmas Card Challenges!!  I've got a fun berry wreath to show you today.  I've actually got the frame and berries to make one like this in my craft closet, but...!!  Hopefully, someday I'll get to it.  ;)


My image is DRS Designs Berry Wreath.  My paper is First Editions Christmas Story.  I colored the wreath with my Spectrum Noir markers, and all panels are cut with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics.


Our challenge this time has a word prompt... wreath.  Mine is not the traditional Christmas wreath, but still a beautiful wreath, IMHO. :)


Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

Dogwood birthday - TMS #402


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

Just over a week ago, I was in northern NJ.  Spring has definitly arrived there!  The ornamental cherry trees, mangolia, and dogwoods were all sooooo beautiful!  Here in upstate NY, our trees are just budding.  I love spring trees!!  So I used my dogwood branch stamp and made a pretty (IMHO) birthday card to share today...

  
My image is DRS Designs Dogwood Branch.  I colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers. The sentiment is Small 1 Line Happy Birthday.  My paper is Crate Paper DIY Shop.  My panels are cut with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A and B.  The adhesive dots are Paper Studio.

Folded tree - CCC #12


Happy Sunday to you! It's time for Christmas Card Challenges!!

Here's my card...


My tree is a folded Christmas tree inspired by this card.  I pinned it several years ago and tried it then.  When making my card for this challenge, everything I tried ended up in the trash can!  This came to mind, so I tried it again.  If you look closely, you'll see several bloopers on my card, so don't look closely!! :)   My paper is First Editions "Christmas Story."  The clear sentiment is Raisin Boat and heat embossed in gold.  My panels were cut with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics.  Pretty simple. 

This challenge has a photo inspiration for you... a Christmas tree.  I don't have the lights and ornaments, but I got the tree!!



Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

I Was the Thorn ♪♫



Happy Resurrection Sunday to you!   I'm so thankful that Jesus Christ was born in a manger, lived a perfect life, and died on the cross to provide the way of salvation!

My sin is forgiven!  But it was my sin that put Christ on the cross... I was the thorn.  Here are my daughters and I singing about that.  I pray this song is a blessing to you!!


I was the thorn, I was the crown.
I caused the bitter pain and blood spilled on the ground.
When You were hung upon the tree, 
And You were bound in agony,
I was the thorn, I was the crown.

But You looked down and saw my need.
Though I deserved to die this death You intercede.
Your matchless gift upon the tree, 
Has burst my chains, now I am free!
For You looked down and saw my need.

You are my Lord; You are my crown!
You pulled me from the pit and set me on the ground.
I once was lost, but now am found.
In holy joy I now am bound. 
I was the thorn, I was the crown.
                                                                                      ~Benjamin Everson


If you would like to know why Jesus died on the cross, here is a great explanation of God's Simple Plan of Salvation. Please click HERE.  And I would love to help answer any questions you might have!

Have a blessed day!!
