Busy Weekend!

I love that I am part of a large family, however, when "birthday season" comes around, I am one busy girl!!!


This card (I wanted to keep for myself) I made for my brother, Patrick. Pat is super cool and sweet and has a very creative style. So, I wanted to make a card for him that was cool. I just LOVE this dsp from Making Memories (I found the paper plus matching ribbon and brads in the clearance section at Archiver's!) The design was cased from Cindy Coutts, founder of Christian Paper Crafts....Cindy was the featured artist Saturday at CPC! I chose this fun card to case. I have also entered this in the "Gradient is Radiant" challenge on Moxie Fab World's blog.

This card I made for my brother, Sean, who is one of my heroes in that he does not let fear keep him from stepping out in faith in anything that he does. In the making of his card, I did a tutorial for Christian Paper Crafts, showing how to use the new 3M Post-It Craft Paper for masking. Though crafters love using this paper in their Cricut, I wanted to show how well it works for masking! The stamped images and sentiment are from the "With Heartfelt Sympathy" set from Our Daily Bread Designs......don't you love the versatility of their sets? I love that I can make birthday or uplifting cards with ODBD's sympathy sets!!!


My last card today was made for my little sis, Rebecca. Her fave colors are hot pink and black.....and what teenage girl doesn't like sparkle? My camera did not tell the truth here, but this card is saturated with Pearl Glimmer Mist!!! I used Heather's Color Monday challenge over at CPC: pink, olive, and lt blue.



Thanks for stopping by today! Have a blessed week!!

How lucky you are to have brothers and a sister!! Their cards are wonderful, and I think you should make another card for yourself just like Patrick's. I love it too.

Love your card and thank you so much Ang! Congrats today for your card being featured at Splitcoast for the sketch challenge! I've always loved your work. It's so uniquely beautiful and isn't imitated anywhere.
