Trust In The Lord


Hello friends, I have a card made with our new Stamp For A Cause set called Surrounded in Prayer.  This heartfelt stamp set was created in honor of our Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Creative Team member Jane Bosi and her recent battle with breast cancer for the purpose of raising funds for a cause that is dear to her heart. We’re thrilled to be partnering with Aspirus to raise funds for their Family House project which will support families while their loved ones undergo treatment. $10 from each stamp sold will be donated to the Aspirus Family House project. I colored my image with Copic Markers and the paper is from BoBunny.   You still have a few days left to get the stamp of the month called Happy Day for FREE with a $75 order and as always, you will get free shipping with a $75 order.
Happy Stamping!!!!!!

ABC Monday

 Today is Anything But a Card Day at Catch The Bug.  We have had a few new neighbors move in so I decided to make up a couple plates of cookies to take to them to welcome them to the neighborhood.  I decided to use one of the dollar digis called Dollar flower Bug, I colored it with copics and then just used some scraps of DP to make a tag.
I added it to the plate with some ribbon and Viola' a nice welcome present.

Genuine Love


Hello friends, playing with a new stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps today called Genuine Love.  I was not sure where I was going when I started this card but love how it turned out.  I used watercolor markers and watercolor paper.  The designer paper is from my scrap bin and I added some pearls to fancy it up a little bit.  I think this card would be great for an engagement, a bridal shower, or even a wedding. Remember at SNSS if you spend $75 you will receive the stamp of the month FREE and also there is FREE shipping on a $75 order.
