Posted by Lena Nunn at 4:25 PM 8 comments
Two days in a row of posting?!? I know! I'm as shocked as you are. Lately when its get late at night and im sitting there thinking I need to get to bed I have a stampin thought. These are thoughts like I MUST USE THIS STAMP WITH THIS PAPER RIGHT THIS VERY SECOND. I dont know why it happens but it does. Last night at about 10:30 I was thinking of crawling into bed when I suddenly remembered this lace stamp I had but have never used. I ran upstairs to my craft room and dug it out ( I say dug because all of my lose stamps are in drawers and they are filled to top). I then thought of the challenges that needed to be done and decided to do the CPS sketch challenge and the House Mouse Mondays Challenge. The challenge for the mouse was to make a black and white card. Well this lace was perfect for both so VOILA! I even did the inside of the card and thats rare unless I have someone buying it right away.

Its taxes day!

Its one of my favorite days of the year! Tax day! I know most people hate doing taxes but I do easy file with H & R Block so mine are easy peasy lemon squeezy. Plus I need the refund money for more craft stuff right? HAHAH I wish. We are actually using the money this year to put new tags on our truck so we can have two vehicles. Does anyone ever get to actually spend their refund on fun things???

Back to the important stuff. The stuff you read this blog for. The cards of course! I made this card last night for the challenge over at The Greeting Farm . The challenge was to use lace or a doily. I looovveee this lace I got from Wish RAK on SCS . Its kind of vintage looking and sweet. I colored in this Cheeky girl using my SU markers and a blender pen on watercolor paper. I really wanted her to have a watercolor look. Not to blended like I normally do. This paper also came from Wish RAK. Whats wish RAK you ask???? Only the best thing on the planet!!!! If you are a member of Splitcoast stampers you can join a group called wish RAK. From there you grant and make wishes. You get a credit for every wish you grant and in return can wish for something. I made a wish for baking paper and recieved these papers in the mail. Its AWESOME!!!!! You can wish for stamped images, papers, ribbons etc. So fun! My name on SCS is lena95469 , so you can find me.

Well wish me luck and big refunds!! haha

Amazing grace

Posted by Lena Nunn at 2:00 PM 1 comments
Hi everyone!! Long time no post huh? I sure have missed all my blogging friends lately so I needed to post something new. The other day I was browsing Pinterest ( If you don't know what that is you MUST go there now and check it out. You must! Its a necessity of life) and I saw a card with flowers stamped on words. I loved it so I had to make my own. Since I needed a sympathy card I decided to go that route. The background is just Amazing grace that I printed off the internet. I then stamped some new dogwood flowers ( they are from Our Daily Bread) I got off wish rak onto the words and colored them in. I then ran it through my embossing folder. It kind of looks like old fabric and I love it! If you have Pinterest I would love to see it. Until next time , happy stamping .
