Big Hug Card

Why do I love this card so much? Well, I really believe all homemade cards really give the receiver just one big HUG! I used the Paper Hugs Stamp set by The Stamp Market. As you can see below the die gives you an option to use the “fatter Paper Hug” as a shadow effect to the skinner one.  But on one card I reversed it using the fatter as the main image. Another great die and inexpensive too! With all the cards you will need a Big Shot or Cuttlebug. 

The saying is from the Hello set below

Because I love a cop…

Yep, we have an officer in our family! Plus my hubby and I served on the Mounted Patrol in our county before life in ministry got crazy. So what better stamp to have than a Donut Card plus you get the die-cut.  Hello Set is cute with plaids and fun HELLO!

The HELLO comes with die cut

Well…the letter die cut is amazing! SO fun because of the thickness of the letters you can easily use background papers to make the letter pop and they are not SO huge you can’t fit a word on a card. The diversity of having the letters is truly awesome! The set is below. I’m telling you…you won’t be able to stop…like you see below!

Background papers like wood is awesome! Love Echo Park.
And my gingham! Alphabet set 
Dots and floral too!
Fun colors are important to make the letter pop.
Such a fun and easy die cut to have!

Big Hugs…

The Rose is pretty and I couldn’t resist only because I can think of many events this one can be used. Below I made a mini wrist corsage. The background paper really made this turn out stunning! 

Pretty wristbands

The Rose is also nice and dainty too.

I have seen many flowers in recent parties with babies and wedding showers and with these die cut you too can make some really awesome decor. Just dressing up the craft room was fun! The Magnolia is a hot flower for many crafts and ideas so I got one of course and I love it’s a fresh look.

Letting Go…Let it Ride

Facing situations with people that are just plain annoying can really eat at your thoughts. Recently I was in a meeting where one gal was pretty dominating. We had much planning to do to organize and set up for an event and I am sure you have experienced this once or twice, but you have an idea and instantly it is shot down. Ok…well me too. I continued to share ideas “letting it ride” that one of the ideas didn’t go over, but then there was another, then another, and another. “Letting it ride” was not going so well! So I became quiet. Not sharing anymore. Becoming…not Christian-like.

I used Gelatos (find here) for my colors translucent and brights,  or here blending with an aqua painter pen (find here) 
(LOVE using watercolor when using open stamps)
The blending pens from SU! are good too, I just don’t like them as well.

It’s a matter of the heart

Simply put our hearts are jealous, rebellious, full of sin. When I felt like I wasn’t heard and thinking my ideas weren’t worth importance, it wasn’t the gal’s fault for putting the ideas down or the others in the room who didn’t jump in and say, “awesome idea Lee!” What I was feeling was unimportant. I forgot life isn’t about me. The event is an important agenda. Jesus is the focus and center of it all. Not my ideas, not my goals, not anything!

“The Lord looks at the heart”. Samuel 16:7b Jesus know my heart. What I am thinking. Thoughts which don’t belong to a follower of Him.

Let it ride brings peace

“Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.” Matthew 6:21

True verse! If I choose to focus on the needs of my feelings of self-worth I set myself up to be bucked off! Peace only comes when I choose to “let it ride”, let the Lord lead. Give my concerns to Jesus and He will sort them all out. If someone has wronged me, by praying and seeking the Lord on the issue to “let it ride” and pray for them, or address it with love, He will lead the way!

Love to hear your comments

Please let me know what you think of the cards. Not that I need affirmation or compliments, but it is fun to see fellow crafters give ideas and tips too.

God’s blessings upon you and

ENJOY THE RIDE HOME,

Lee
