Hello and Welcome!! :)

Coffee of the Day - Butter Pecan

How exciting! My first post on my brand, spankin' new blog! just gives me goosebumps!

I hope that all of you enjoy visiting here. I am an avid stamper and papercrafter who just loves the creativity of playing with paper and embellishments! I also find it very relaxing, unless of course I'm working on a deadline! ;)

I hope to post here several times a week, showing various items that I have made. You will also find my faith in God coming through, as my relationship with Him is my most prized. I am a mother of 3 amazing teenage boys, married to my college sweetheart. Yes, I am blessed indeed! :) I am also a coffee addict, so you will see my 'coffee of the day' listed with each post. just a little something fun to add to your day!

now for one of my creations.....

I made this card using the MOST AMAZING stamps from American Art Stamp Company. The angels are designed by Adriana Cirstea. These are probably some of my most fave stamps ever designed!!! I wanted my first post to reflect my belief that God loves us so very much and never leaves our sides. This card was made for someone who just discovered that they have advanced cancer. The inside reads "God Bless." I'm hoping that it brings a certain degree of comfort.

The papers are by Basic Grey from the Stella Ruby collection. I think that is probably one of my favorite lines by them. The main angel image was first painted with Butter Cream Shimmerz and then stamped. From there I used a blender pen to fill in the image. I used a white gel pen to accent the wings. I am really into the shabby chic/vintage look, so I pulled out some vintage laces, seam binding, and a button from my wonderful stash of supplies. The edges were distressed with ink and the paper distressing tool to complete the aged look. Check out the Shimmerz blog for lots of wonderful ideas and contests!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I will be posting some 'welcome' blog candy in the next week or so, so be sure to check back soon!

Have a wonderful weekend! :)
Jennifer
