Looking Back at the ODBD November Release!

Good morning!  

Today we are looking back at the ODBD November Release!  So many great sets this month!  

I am sharing a card today that I made with The Earth and the coordinating Custom Circle Ornament Dies. This is a clean and simple card.  I used a spellbinders A-2 die and cut the circle and the circle frame with the new Circle Ornament DiesThe Earth image is heat embossed and I use a copic marker to color.

That's it!  Thanks for joining us! 
Here are links to all the other designers participating today:

Have a wonderful weekend!

Still Catching Up!

 Happy Thursday!

I am still catching up but narrowing the gap!!  LOL!!!  

Here are three that I made before my Dad got so sick.  Time to share them!
The first one above focuses on the pretty new ODBD Christmas Paper collection 2013!
I made little presents with pieces from the pack, cutting strips of 'ribbon' from gold card stock and a pretty bow from the ODBD Custom Circle Ornament Dies.  The Merry Christmas sentiment is from the new Christmas Pattern Ornaments set.

This ornament card is also made with the Christmas Pattern Ornaments set and the ODBD Custom Circle Ornament dies and is framed with Spellbinders dies.   The image is heat embossed in clear and is embellished with a few rhinestones.

 This card features the ODBD Christmas Paper Collection for a pretty background.  The die cuts are made with Memory Box dies.  The sentiment is from The Earth set and is cut out with a Spellbinders die.  A few rhinestones were added to complete the card.

Here are all the ODBD products I used for these cards:

Catching Up!

Here are a couple of cards that I made for the NCC November Release.  I was unable to join in on release day due to the death of my dear father last week.  He was always so proud of my cards and I know he would want me jumping right back into the game!  Plus it will help me keep my mind off of things...

My first card is made with the new Santa Paws set.  So cute!!!  The image is colored with copics and cut out with a Spellbinders Square.  The image square is popped up over some pretty ODBD Christmas Paper.  I added some stickles to the image for a little sparkle.

Here is my second card:

This one features the Santa Claws set.  I love it!  Cats are my favorite!  I colored with copics and cut it out with the ODBD Custom Circle Ornament Die and used a Spellbinders Scallop Circle for the backing.  The leaves and berries are from the same Circle Ornaments and the swirly vine is from ODBD Custom Fancy Foliage.  I added stickles again for a little sparkle.

Have a wonderful day!

Just a Closer Walk with Thee

This is my Dad.  

Two years ago he was diagnosed with CMML, a rare form of leukemia. My brother donated bone marrow for a transplant.  Things were going pretty good.  However a few months ago, some bad cells returned.  His only option was more chemo.  Unfortunately, he was struck with a crazy infection in mid October and for the last month, he struggled and fought and tried so hard but my Daddy lost the battle last Tuesday on 11/12/13.  He was only 73 years old.  He was a gentle giant.  A quiet strong man who loved his family with all his heart.  Especially my Mom.  They have been married almost 54 years.  

Now we have to create a new normal.  Begin a new chapter.  The only way to get through this is to lean on God.  Our hearts are broken and hurting.  But I do believe in heaven and I know my Daddy is there.  We will all be together again someday.  In the meantime, the tears are flowing.  In the meantime, my Mom will have to celebrate their anniversary without him.  In the meantime, we have to have our first Thanksgiving without him.  In the meantime, we will cry on his birthday.  And in the meantime, we have to get through Christmas without him.  There are times I am not sure how we will make it!  

Forgive me for pouring out my heart today.  Tomorrow I plan to start back with my blog posts.  

Just a closer walk with Thee,
Grant it, Jesus, is my plea,
Daily walking close to Thee,
Let it be, dear Lord, let it be.
I am weak, but Thou art strong,
Jesus, keep me from all wrong,
I’ll be satisfied as long
As I walk, let me walk close to Thee.
Through this world of toil and snares,
If I falter, Lord, who cares?
Who with me my burden shares?
None but Thee, dear Lord, none but Thee.
When my feeble life is o’er,
Time for me will be no more,
Guide me gently, safely o’er
To Thy kingdom's shore, to Thy shore.

Two Gold Ornaments and a Snowman!

Good morning!  Hope all is well with you today!

I have a couple of cards to share featuring some great new ODBD products!!!


On this card I stamped the Christmas Pattern Ornaments in Versamark onto gold card stock and clear embossed them.  They were cut out with the Circle Ornament Dies.  Talk about a quick and easy card!!!

Here is my second card:

On this card the background is some of the new ODBD Christmas Paper Collection 2013.  I cut out a circle from the Circle Ornament dies and the smaller circle is from the Recipe Card and Tags dies.  The arms are from the Fancy Foliage dies and the eyes are the tiny circles that get cut from the ornament hanger in the Circle Ornament Dies!  His carrot nose was cut free hand!  I glued down the ribbon for his scarf and stamped the sentiment from The Earth.  Another Quick and Easy card!

Thanks so much for looking!  See you again soon!
