My beautiful friend

Rejoice in hope, be patient in ribulation, be constant in prayer.

Romans 12:12

Hello, here is a quick reminder of the Creative Moments Challenge which started yesterday.  This is a lovely image is from Stitchy Bears and is ideal for friends suffering with alopecia or illness.  I have coloured the image with Promarkers and made it into a card using papers called Parisian Dreams, which came free with a magazine earlier in the year.

Chubby fairy

I had to have this digistamp when I saw it.  It is from A day for Daisies and rather reminds me of myself!

Her dress and wings were coloured with Antique Pink, Rose pink and Pale Blossom.  I used a Graph’it blender to fade the colour out.  Her hair was done with Cocoa, Walnut and Satin.

Creative Moments challenge reminder – Sassy Studios

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus

Philippians 4:6-7

Hello, welcome to my second post today,which is a reminder for the ‘use some lace’ challenge  over at Creative Moments.  Our sponsors for this challenge are Sassy Studio Designs and Eureka, who are providing the prizes for the challenge.  WHen I saw this digi from Sassy Studio designs I immediately thought “naughty or nice?”  So here is my take on that.  The backing paper is a Hunkydory insert, which was cut around to fit.  The flower and leaves were also Hunkydory and the caption is a chipboard sentiment from Smirk.

Embossed Christmas card

In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven

Matthew 5:16

Good morning, today’s card is being entered into an Inspired by Stamping tutorial challenge.  The image was stamped using a multicoloured inkpad then it was embossed using Papermania Enchanted Gold embossing powder, which is transparent but iridescent.  The finished topper was layered up with mirricard and glittercard.  I love the effect of what is a very simple technique.
