"Bless This House"


My hubby's grandmother.....you've seen her before as "Biker Granny"on this previous post...just received some great news this week that her home is paid for.....what a relief this news would be to anyone! So, I thought she would love a happy card to help celebrate her mortgage freedom!!! She loves everything pink, so pink it is!!!




This week's Technique Lover's Challenge is to make your own flowers....finally I have the chance to break out my new Cuttlebug Quilling Sets!!! This week's Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast is to choose an item from Oompa....the most fun and awesome kid's store! I chose this Little Horse Carpet, because I just fell in love with the bright colors! Also, this past week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Charlene aka cookiebaker.....what an awesome gallery to cruise through!!! I chose this card to case because I loved the CAS design......perfect to break out a new Our Daily Bread designs set, called "Bless This Home". I have also used the following challenges for my cottage card: Sentimental Sundays challenge is about celebrations; the All Sorts challenge is to create a scene; the Etsy Inspired Challenge was to choose an item from the Kimmieprout store...I chose these fun pink buttons; the Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge is to use die cuts (quilled flower); the Magical Crafts Challenge is "Flower Power"; the challenge at Crazy Challenges is "up in the air", so I sponged some clouds; the Pile it On Challenge is to use your favorite things....paper piercing and pearls are definitely my faves!!!

My second card is a quick card I made for my bosses' birthday. I was so happy to have a vision of a clean and simple card for once....my aching back thanked me for this one!!!! I was also happy to be able to squeeze in a few challenges for this as well!!



This week's Color Monday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts is to use celery and brown....hopefully black is considered a neutral! Also, the Clean and Simple Challenge at Splitcoast is all about Celebrations and to choose an awesome cake from Carrie's Wedding Cakes.....I chose the "Jessica" cake as my inspiration. Since this is a "guy card", I didn't add the polka dots!!! The Paper Playtime challenge is "It's a Guy Thing". It's been a while since I've used any Stampin' Up stamps....they are getting a bit dusty.....had to break out one of my faves, "Lovely As A Tree", which is always a good one for masculine cards. (Sorry, I didn't take the time to find the box belonging to the sentiment to see what the name was.)

Thanks for stopping by today! See you on Thursday right here for another Bible Verse Thursday challenge combined with a new Stamping in Time: On Assignment challenge!! God Bless!

Thank you for submitting a beautiful card for our Paper Playtime challenge this week! Your boss will love it. Also, thanks for leaving a comment. I'm trying to figure out why the comments aren't posting. If you don't mind, would you leave your comment again? I think I may have fixed it, but can't make your comment repost myself. Have a Blessed Day! :) Janis
