I knew this would be a must have item for me when I saw it. I've used ODB The Cross of Christ set, a scrap of BasicGrey design paper and some Recollections Gemstone cardstock for this one.

You are to use a peaceful image. I chose this deer and sentiment from Sweet n Sassy Stamps (now retired). I've colored it with copics and added blue for the sky with a sponge dauber. I used this week's CPS sketch for the layout. I'm also adding this to Crazy 4 Challenges masculine challenge.

Tools: Cuttlebug embossing folder, Sizzix texture plate; Nestabilities; Martha Stewart punch
Accents: Ribbon, pearls
This card was made for the Our Daily Bread Day 2 Anniversary Challenge. This one is an inspiration challenge based on a china photo collage. I was inspired by the colors, the butterflies, and the white and patterns. I immediately thought of embossing. I don't know if you can see it well in the photo but all of the white is embossed, including the image panel.
I used the sketch at Taylored Expressions for the layout. I was inspired by one of the DT cards as to the placement of the butterflies.

Colossians 3:17 "And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."
A free theme didn't really motivate me because I didn't know what I wanted to do. I need structure. This afternoon hubby asked me to print this verse for our Sunday School class in a nice font to put on the bulletin board. We teach our college and career age class (18-30) and one of them suggested this as a class verse. We have also talked about decorating our classroom as it is a little bland - old brown paneling. That's when it hit me- I could do a scrapbook style layout with the verse and frame it. I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday for a layout. I'm late posting this because we went out to dinner and to run some errands and I just got back to frame it and take a photo. I like it better out of the frame as there is a brown border around my page and the frame covers it. I'm not sure it technically qualifies for the challenges because the image isn't stamped but I did sponge some ink around the verse. Anyway, here's my project:
Papers: We R Memory Keepers
Accents: Prima flowers, rhinestones- Michaels
Thanks for looking.
Stamp: Phindy's Place - Lots of Luck to You
Accents: Ribbon, button (Michael's); brads, flowers
Isn't she precious? This one reminds me of a coworker's daughter, so she had to have red hair. This was a lot of fun to color too!

This one is a little different from my usual cards. Most of my cards are serious and very grown up like, so this is different for me, but I like it. Happy and bubbly were the first things that came to mind when I took a final look at it.
The image is from All That Scraps and papers are Cosmo Cricket. I've done the coloring with Copics. (Sorry I did not record which ones this time). This is my entry for Card Patterns this week.
I love this image. It reminds me of hubby and Bella when we went to pick her up. She just jumped into his arms as if she belonged to him and it made him so happy. We had lost our old dog a month before. She is still missed, but Bella brings us lots of joy.
This image can be found at Digital Stamp Oasis. I've incorporated this into the Sketch at Friday Sketchers. Coloring was done with Prismacolor pencils and I sponged Ranger distress ink aroung the edges. Papers are by BasicGrey.
