Taking a Few Moments to Play

Well, I don't know about y'all but I have been busy, busy this last week!!!! Finally, I was able to sit down and make a couple of cards! Ahh! A little stress relief from the hustle and bustle!

This first card is for this week's Featured Stamper Challenge. Pam124 is honored this week and if you haven't had a chance to check out her gallery, what are you waiting for? Not only is she a very talented card maker, she leaves the sweetest comments!! I chose this card to case because I loved her ribbon treatment so much! My base card is Whisper White. I layered this beautiful SEI designer paper with Old Olive. I used the Loopy Martha border punch and with my Stamp-a-ma-jig, stamped the scripture from the Our Daily Bread designs new set called Peace and Joy on this panel instead of the bottom of the card. The snowflake is Martha's too and I added a pretty sparkly pearl on top! Thanks for the inspiration Pam and congratulations!

This card combines the Midnight Madness sketch and the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge to pull out your stored treasures and use them! Well, I would have to say that I pulled out some pearls and used them everywhere!!! The base is Close to Cocoa. More gorgeous SEI paper layered with Ruby Red. I cut out the partial circles with a Circle Nestie. I added some organdy ribbon I have been saving and made the bow with my Bow Easy tool. The sentiment is part of the new Our Daily Bread designs set called His Gift and is heat embossed with Versamark, Memento Brown and clear embossing powder. This was cut out with another nestie and layered with a scallop nestie and adhered with foam tape. I added Zva pearls pretty much everywhere to finish the card!

Thanks for visiting with me tonight!
I hope you can take a few moments to play during the hustle and bustle!
Come back soon!
