Happy Thursday everyone! Praise God for another lovely day that He has blessed us with.  We're having another lovely day here today - sunny but not warm. I was able to do 2 loads of laundry and planning to have another one in a little while. :) 

I've made this card for the SSCC#77 Challenge and SC321 Sketch Challenge over SCS.  I started stamping the images last night, chose my dp to use and did the dry embossing on the top part of the card but just decided to put it all together the next day (which is today) after I'm done with my chores.

The SSCC#77 challenge calls for using "green" on your card or project.  The inspiration was taken from Exodus 8:9-11 wherein God sent a plague of frogs to Egypt so that the Pharaoh will let go of the people of Israel.  Peggysue Turner (DT member of Stampin' Sisters in Christ) made a wonderful sharing about this verse.

So, without any further chatthing, here's my take on the challenge:

My stamp image is basically one of my "first" stamps since I started with my cardmaking hobby.  It's also one of those so-neglected stamps that's just gathering dusts inside my cubby box. But it's inked today! And probably will be inking it more in the future. (I hope, lol!).  I used SU! Old Olive for my image and for the sentiment (Stampendous), I used Memento Rhubarb Stalk.  The white panel was embossed with Cuttlebug Stylized Flower and coloured with green decorative chalk. The images were cut with Nestabilities Square and matted onto a Rose Red cs cut with Cuttlebug Vintage corner die (another neglected stuff of mine).  I used another colour apart from white and green to give the card some pop. ;)

Thanks so much for looking and can you please keep the people of New Zealand in your prayers as they tragically experienced a 6.3 magnitude earthquake recently. There were many lives and homes lost and they're still trying to find survivors from this natural disaster.  Say a prayer for them during your quite time with the Lord, will you?

Thanks once again and I'll see you on my next post.

God bless.

Good evening everyone! (it's already night here on my part of the world).  Today's card is for the Featured Stamper (FS211) this week over SCS and she's no other than StampGroover (aka Cookie). Her cards are all fab and mostly Clean and Simple ones.  Anyways, I tried my best to CASE one of her cards and I CASE'd her Sweet As Pie card.

I changed the colours, dp, placement of ribbon and image but used the same lay-out (almost).  The Magnolia image is one of the RAK images that I received months ago. I coloured Tilda with Copics and made the colours from the dp my inspiration in colouring her. The oval panel was cut with Oval Nestabilities and embossed using Cuttlebug Birthday embossing folder. The Regal Rose mat was also cut with a bigger size Oval Nestabilities then cut with pinking scissors for a different border. I realized I have more than 10 different decorative scissors and decided to start using them again on my projects.

The sprinkled Martha Stewart Crystal Fine glitter on top of her cupcake for added effect.  Here's a closer shot of the card:

Thank you for looking and I'll see you again on my next post.

Have a blessed day!! God loves you!
