Cancer is so limited...


I've got a pretty card to share today, but I wish I never had to make this kind... it's for a friend battling cancer.  This is actually the third card like this that I have made and sent recently. :(
But I really love the truth of the verse on it! 


In case you can't read it in the pic...

Cancer is so limited...
It cannot cripple Love.
It cannot shatter Hope.
It cannot corrode Faith.
It cannot eat away Peace.
It cannot destroy Confidence.
It cannot kill Friendship.
It cannot shut out Memories.
It cannot silence Courage.
It cannot reduce Eternal Life.
It cannot Quench the Spirit.


Supplies...
My Time Made Easy "Be Supportive" sentiment (I LOVE this set! Click the name to see it.)
Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles
Memento Potter's Clay ink
Crate Paper "Farmhouse" DP
AC ribbon


Challenges...
Polkadoodles #31 - anything goes
Really Reasonable Ribbon #169 - anything goes w/ ribbon
Craftaholics R Us #30 - die cuts
The Paper Shelter - anything goes
Word Art Wednesday #294-295 - anything goes w/ uplifting sentiment/family friendly
Cut It Up #127 - friendship/must use dies (I think being there for a friend in the midst of their cancer battle is true friendship!)


Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

Hello - TMS #414


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!  My card was pretty simple to put together, but some added touches give it character. 



This really is simple... 3 pcs cut with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics, 2 embossing folders, a "hello" die, 3 giant brads, a ribbon scrap, and chalk sponged on the edges.  I love dry embossing!  It is my favorite and go-to technique.  Chalking the edges just brings it out a little. 


Here's our sketch for this week...




Our sponsor for this week is Pink and Main!  Wonderful company with awesome stamps and dies!




Challenges...
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - anything goes
Brown Sugar #261 - anything goes
Word Art Wednesday #292-#293 - anything goes (must have encouraging sentiment and be family friendly)

Recollections O Christmas Tree DP
Raisin Boat Merry Nature sentiment
Darice Large Snowflake die
Slice Shimmer Pearl Vine

Make a wish - TMS #413


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

This is a good day to share a birthday card...  today is my oldest daughter's 21st birthday!!!!  How can that possibly be??!!??  When my kids were little, some days it felt like they'd never grow up, and then all of a sudden, they are grown up!!

And here's my card...




My DP is MME Lost & Found Two.  The main panel is embossed with a Lifestyle Crafts EF, and the small one is CB Swiss Dots.  My image is Tim Holtz Blueprint Assortment and the sentiment is Tim Holtz Saying Stuff.  It's cut with Spellbinders Small and Large Labels.  It's colored with Spectrum Noir markers.  My ribbon is American Crafts.


This week is exciting... it's our final TMS's 8th birthday celebration challenge. 
And the theme this week.... Use your stamps!  Pretty easy, right?  But to be very clear, your focal image must be stamped.  No digital images or die cut focal images.


Our sponsor this week is My Sweet Petunia.  Yep!  One random winner will win the choice of an Original MISTI or Mini MISTI!



I have a Mini MISTI and I absolutely LOVE IT!!!  What a wonderful prize!!


So grab your stamps and follow our wonderful sketch for this week.

With sympathy - TMS #412


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

This month is flying by!  We're already at our third of four challenges + themes celebrating our 8th anniversary here at TMS!  

My card is not celebratory but one that is too often necessary. :( 


My DP is Authentique "Journey."  My sentiment is PTI Botanical Silhouettes.  I heat embossed it.  The main panels are cut using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics.  The swirl is Spellbinders Doodle Parts.  The paper flowers are Recollections and the brad is from my stash.

Here is our sketch and theme...

"sketch + embellishments"



The prize this week is a fun stamp set by Kaiser Craft...




Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to go check out the creations from the TMS DT...  {{I just LOVE how we all embellished differently!!}}

Have yourself a merry little Christmas - CCC #17


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

My card is pretty simple, but still has character.  IMHO, anyway. ;)


I stamped my Momenta clear sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black, then embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Rather than cut it out, I cut my DP (a scrap) with Spellbinders Celebra'tions Pierced Squares so that the sentiment showed through.  I wrapped it with some twine, cut some branches with my MS punch, and added Making Memories paper flowers and a We R Memory Keepers brad.


Our challenge is always anything goes Christmas/holiday, but we also always have an optional challenge.  Here is this week's photo... (I was inspired by the words.)


Challenges...
A snowflake promise #42 - anything goes
ABC Christmas Challenge - N for new & O for old (Old--my branch punch and stamp are very old) 


Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!
