This is a page I created using a kit I received from being a member of Daily Digi (awesome kits for a monthly fee~ extremely reasonable- as long as you use them ;o) see http://thedailydigi.com/cilenia-curtis-changes/comment-page-1/#comment-75667 for the scoop and great ideas! Would love any feedback on this page. It is pretty and sort of girly but afterward I was thinking about the words and topic of the page and I kept going back to when Bob was in Virgina working while we stayed here in Ohio and prayed our house would sell. Although we loved the gorgeousness of Virginia, family and friends are all here... There were many times I felt like I might like to jump off that cliff and many times I felt like I was falling off that cliff, but God is faithful and helped me to make it through (alright carried me like a baby, LOL!) God brought Bob home after 9 months and we are very grateful to be back together. I used this kit called Changes and a free alpha from Mommyish for the & and Nibbles Skribbles PR Alphabet for the numbers. This is a different version which do you like best and why?? If I get a good response (50 comments-please ask your friends to comment too!) I will giveaway something sweet to someone who comments!

This card was using the Spiritual sampler stamp set. One of my favorite (although who can really choose with so many awesome ones)!
This is a very similar to the first card. I hand cut a limb and used packaging to stamp my sentiment on. Inked around the card after cutting out all the pieces and placing it on. Pretty straight forward. I hope you enjoy this cutie!
I will be putting in a few cards for the http://papersmoochessparks.blogspot.com/2013/04/april-29-may-5-anything-goes-challenge.html . I am also going to submit these for the Be Our Guest Challenge. I have never done this but thought I would try since it is over June when we will not be homeschooling and I would like the challenge to produce for Paper Smooches! I first stamped the chickie on the cardstock so I would not have to cut out the very top. I cut out this adorable chick after stamping on the cute paper. Then paper pieced back in the eyes in white. The one piece was a scrap from a background piece I made and the sentiment was stamped on part of a packaging piece from a stamp set.
This is my second hers card that I created for the Online Card Class His and Hers. This birthday card was created using the SSS May 2013 card kit. I love the stamps for this month (alright who am I kidding I really love all that I have gotten~ Kristina Werner is my hero~ She creates the stamps for SSS and is Soooo talented)! I used vellum and paper from the kit and white embossed on the vellum coloring in behind it with Copic markers to make the flowers stand out. I punched out a border and stapled on the heart fabric borders, also part of the kit. Then I wrote the sentiment on the side with a signo black pen. The left side seems a bit empty... I was thinking about adding some random dots with pearl pen but I decided to leave it blank. What do you think? Should I add something or do you think it is best left like it is? I am open to suggestions.
This card was using the SSS May Card Kit 2013. The Mother's Day sentiment was part of the kit so all I had to do was cut it out. The pocket envelope would be used for a gift card and the flower focal point I used was described in previous descriptions so check out my other posts for details on that... I thought these colors complimented each other really well! Super easy card. I am really liking these pocket envelopes. ~God bless~
This card is the her's version like the Father's Day card I made. Here I used the white ink and then stamped slightly off with the neon pink ink. I created the hearts the same way but instead of white paper it was the color that you see covered with glossy accents. The sentiment came in SSS Card Kit for May 2013 and I just covered the hearts that were there with Viva Decor pen. It was not as well as I would have liked but it will have to do. It makes it a little different. This card could be used for Mother's Day / Anniversary/ Love... I like having cards that you have in your stash that can go for many different occasions! ~God bless~ I am also entering this card in the http://www.simonsaysstampschallenge.blogspot.com SSS Challenge Happy Mail!
This card was inspired by Kelly Rasmussen's card with the fold to it. I thought this was super fun! I will be posting the Mother's Day too once the elements are dry... I used the same hearts but for the Father's Day card I used wet cement to stamp on a khaki card stock and inked around the paper for the wrap around to help blend it in.. I found a paper from a 6x6 pad to wrap around and used 4 hearts stacked on top of each other then also inked with dame color (funny how they all have different color depending on the original color~ but it is all good!) to add the needed dimension. This tab stays put behind the heart and flips open. Such fun! Don't ya think ;o)
Another variation on the theme. This was done a lot like Day 1 card so check that one out for details~ but I love the color of purples I picked, as does my good friend that is godmother and was never able to have her own kids! I hope she enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it for her! ~God bless~
This was done a lot like Day 1 card so check that one out for details~ but I love the color of blues I picked, as does my mother! I hope she enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it for her! ~God bless~
