2015$ Challenge

Happy New Year, friends!  

2014 was a year of many ups and downs...many opportunities for growth...but most of all, opportunities to see the Lord at work.  I am so looking forward to what He will accomplish in 2015 for His glory!  I wish you the very best as you seek Him day by day.
My post for today is not my typical card share.  Today would like to ask for your help.  My sweet friend Julie and her family have felt the Lord's calling and are in the process of adopting a special needs child from China.  As I am sure you know, adoption, especially internationally, is a very expensive calling but YOU can help!
2015$ - Two Thousand Fifteens  
There are in excess of 150,000,000 orphans in this world today!! That number is staggering and can seem quite overwhelming, but with your help, the Masses are excited to make that number ONE LESS!
"No ONE person can do everything, but we can all do ONE thing!"
Here's the challenge:
  • The Masses are looking for 2000 people to make a one-time donation of $15.00 to their YouCaring adoption site.
  • Once you have completed your donation, please SHARE this event with your contacts, your FB friends, family, etc.  The more people who see this, the greater chance we have to reach the goal of 2000 $15.00 donations!
  • PRIZES:  For every 50 donations made, they are gifting an exclusive, handmade Bracelets For One to a randomly drawn winner!!  (Check out their Bracelets For One FB page if you're interested in purchasing a beautiful bracelet! All proceeds from your purchase go to their adoption fund!)

Thank you so much for taking the time to read and consider this worthy cause, for donating if you are able and for sharing this event.  Visit the 2015$ event page on FB to track the progress!

To read more about the Masses and their adoption journey, please visit their adoption blog:  
Blessings to you!

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop-Blog Candy!

I'm joining the fun for the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop with a fun friendship gift tag I created this morning with some of my favorite stamps from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  We're sponsoring the hop with a fun prize so play along for a chance to win!!

In addition to Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps contributing some goodies, I am, too!  But you don't have to participate in the hop to enter, you just have to comment on this post to enter!  I'll share my prize at the end of the's my creation....

I have TONS of these shipping tags (literally hundreds!!) that I purchased for a homeschool co-op project so I thought I would make a tag instead of a card.  I stamped the tag with some of the images from Pick Me Up, Special Blend and Delightfully Delicate Background.  I also sponged the edges to give it a more vintage-y feel.

The stack of cups was cut out with a die and colored with Copics.  I added some Stickles for a bit more interest....who doesn't love bling? :)

I hope you'll join the hop and check out all the fabulous coffee creations. 

Here are the stamps and dies I used for my card...

Okay, now how about that blog candy!

I'll be giving away (25) shipping tags like the one I used for my creation above, (1) silver washi tape, (1) pack black rhinestones & (1) Cocoa's Latte stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

 The winner will be announced early next week!

So Grateful For You!

During this beautiful season of thanksgiving, I just wanted to tell you all how grateful I am for you.  Over the past 7 years I have watched this small stamp company grow and grow.  I have experienced many ups and downs, many uncertain times and many great blessings, but perhaps the greatest blessing of all has been my privilege of meeting so many amazing women who have, in fact, become some of my very dearest and treasured friends. 

If you have a blessing you would like to share with me, I would love to hear it.  Please feel free to leave me a comment.  I read each one.  Let's count our blessings together and praise our generous Father for all He has given to us!

Much love,

Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps November Release

Good day, friends!

I am excited to share with you a couple samples from our newest release. You can find all of the release details HERE.  Be sure to hop along with the DT (this is one of the spots) for a chance at our release prize.  We hope you enjoy all the pretties we have to share with you today!

First up is a lovely winter scene I created with our Comforting Pines stamp set and dies and Hillside Edges dies.

Would you believe we woke up this morning to temps in the 20s and snow on the ground?  It wasn't as much snow as shown above, but it was enough to cause a bit of surprise.  I'm not quite ready for the scene above to be real. :)  To create this card I cut out the hillside edges and very lightly sponged them to create some depth.  I layered them over some lovely snowy DP I had in my stash.  The trees were die cut and colored with Copics.  I added some "snow" with a Sharpie Poster Paint Pen (which I have added to the store because we get so many requests for it!) and topped the snow off with Stickles for some sparkle.  Finally, I added some ribbon and popped the whole panel up on gray cardstock and a white card base.

Next up is a fun sample using our new Baked for You stamps and dies

I love pie and around this time of year you can find it in so many delicious varieties.  For my card, I layered some adorable papers from Doodlebug Designs.  The pie was die cut and colored with Copic markers.  You can't see it in the picture, but I added Glossy Accents to the pie plate to make it look like "glass".  I sprinkled some chunky glitter on top to resemble sugar crystals.  The sentiment was stamped directly on the layer of DP and then I added some rhinestones and seam binding to finish it off.

I hope you enjoyed your visit with me today!  I appreciate you stopping by!

Enjoy the rest of the hop!

Snowy Hello

Hello friends!  You still out there?  My blog hasn't seen any love in a long time.  Priority shifts in a hectic life have made that so, but I had some time to stamp for fun this weekend so I thought I would pop over here and share a couple cards I made.

A friend from church came over Saturday to start on her Christmas cards.  She is new to stamping and picked it up like a pro.  We were on a snowman kick so I chose to play with my friend Diane's adorable set, Snowy Hello.  I just love this precious image of a bunny sharing his lunch with a noseless snowman. :)  It's so cute!

Here are two completely different cards I created using this fun image...

I colored them both with Copics and paired them with some fun new papers I got from Doodlebug Designs.  Goodness, I love their papers! :)

Both cards have a bit of sparkle on them, but it was hard to capture in the photos.

I hope you are able to enjoy some stamping time this week!  I know it was a blessing for me!

Until next time...

Much love,
