~ Oh, Happy Day! ~

Goooooooood Morning, Girls! (and guys 🙂 )

I actually feel the pressure lifting off of me a little this morning.   I slept pretty good and I have no deadlines to meet for today.   DH is not in my hair and the kids are off to school.   So, what does one do with a quiet house?   Stamp, of course!

Today’s Ways To Use It challenge was to use frames in our project.   I have been thinking of this card for awhile now.    Just hadn’t had the chance to do it until today :).


Pretty cut and dried.   I stamped my images and cut them out and arranged them so that a few were popping out of the frame.   There is alot of dimension going on.   The (summer sun) frame is on dimensionals as are each flower.   The big pink flowers are on double dimensionals so that hey stand above the frame.


Here are my deets:

Stamps:  Flowers of Happiness by There She Goes; Holidays Galore (sentiment) by There She Goes

Colors: GP White, Summer Sun, Regal Rose

Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, copics

Accessories: 1/2 pearls (pink); white organdy ribbon, pink satin ribbon, word window punch, Nesties curvy rectangle dies, swiss dots ef, dimensionals


~~ My Spiritual Corner ~~

I am pleased to announce that we (as a family) are attending yet another new church.    After much prayer, we found that the church we fell in love with here is just too large for us.   Although it is an awesome and inspiring place to be, we just felt lost in the crowd.   The new church is large as well, but not so big that we cannot get an appt with the pastor :).

I am so excited to be part of this church family.    I think my boys are going to adore it.    One of the pastors is our next door neighbor!  I often see him wandering around his yard as I am in my studio… I wave and he waves back.   He and his wife welcomed us warmly the first day we moved in.    His son is also a classmate of my son, Noah.

Praise God!


Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!
