Gloriously 60 Day 8 Art – Beautiful You

Hi Angels!

This Grammy is tired after an overnight with the granddaughters but of course we love having them. And surprise, my youngest son cleaned the house for a Mother’s Day gift after we left to take them home.

We didn’t do much art while they were here this time but I did introduce Miss Nora to Diamond Dotz and I’m pretty sure she’d love to do more.

I got a small Unity Stamp Co. order in the mail today so I made a quick card after dinner.

I used the new Unity Paisley Dreams Toner Card Fronts with the Say It Big Coordinating Dies. It’s always challenging to photograph foil. The foil is Themoweb Enchanted Rose but it looks like rainbow in the reflected light. The you die is an old die from SU!

Thanks for popping in!

Have a Fabulous Mother’s Day!

Blessed Easter

Hi Angels!

I hope everyone has had a blessed Easter Sunday!

Yesterday was hubby’s birthday, so we actually went to town Friday all day for some shopping & dinner. So yesterday we moved my desk into the studio & I now some more re-organizing to do. Thus no art posts for 2 days.

Today I finished the 2 cards I started for our granddaughters for Easter. They have foiled backgrounds which were hard to capture but came out cute.

I used Therm-o-web’s egg toner card fronts in purple & rainbow and added My Favorite Things Wish You Were Here and the sentiment is from Sweet ‘n Sassy Hoppy Spring.

We enjoyed the day with our daughter, son-in-law & granddaughters including an egg hunt in the front yard, some legos from grammy & papa & dinner.

They were really happy to find chocolate in their eggs.

Have a Fabulous Week!

Shine Bible Journaling Retreat

Hi Angels!

Last weekend also hosted the Creative Worship Bible Journaling group’s Shine Retreat. Because Crop & Create was so intense, I only got to create 2 of the workshops & a couple of prayer sessions.

Since Crop & Create provided us with more foiling tips from Therm-o-web, I created a Faithdex card with the retreat’s focal verse & foiling.

Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16

For the ray background I used the free printable from Allie Scraps, a diecut of the word Shine from Elizabeth Craft cut out with mounting tape & foiled, Sweet ‘n Sassy’s Shine Your Light stamp set & hand lettered verse.

I plan to spend a good portion of this week doing some more of the Bible Journaling Workshops.

Have a Fabulous Easter Week!

Butterfly Birthday Foiled

Hi Angels!

So excited as at 8am tomorrow both weekend retreats begin!

I made a really fast card so I can get tucked in for some rest and then realized it came out a bit crooked but that’s okay, I think the foiling will dazzle still.

I love butterflies and this is so beautiful. I added Taylored Expressions Birthday Sentiment Strips.

Well off to bed to get some rest before classes kick off in the morning.

Have a Fabulous Weekend and do something creative!

Sparkling Anniversary

Hi Angels!

I hope your weekend has been restful & fun!

Today we booked our anniversary trip for May. So excited.

It’s also our oldest son’s & his bride’s 1st anniversary. I delivered their card a couple of days ago.

As I may have mentioned, I am in a couple of virtual retreats this coming weekend. The Crop & Create Weekend sent a sponsors goody bag along with our class kits. Therm-O-Web included a fun heart toner card front that I used to create Matthew & April’s card.

The foiling came out fabulous! I used Brutus Monroe’s Purple Sketch foil created by Therm-O-Web. The Love is an older Die-namic from My Favorite Things and is cut from purple metallic paper and the vellum background is Grafix Platinum which also has a shimmer to it. The sentiment is from Sweet ‘n Sassy’s Anniversary Blessings stamp set and is embossed in WOW Sugared Almond which has glitter in it. Overall it is a very sparkly card.

When I get the chance, I need to spend some more time foiling, it is so fun.

Have a Fabulous week ahead.
