Hello blogging friends!  This week’s post is a little bit different. I discovered a couple of great Facebook groups that are very inspiring! One is Art & Hand-Lettering Class | Dawn Nicole Designs, and Zenspirations® Create, Color, Pattern, Play! Dawn Nicole is such a talented artist and has been generous enough to share some of her templates. Here is the one I used this week:


and here is what I created:

“And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.” 1 John 2:28 (KJV)

I showed you the original so you could see what I added. Copic markers were used to color this. I posted earlier this year that Abide is my word for the year, so I used it on this piece. I have never had a word of the year before, but I really like the idea because it makes me focus clearly on that word and what it means. Well, that is my journal for this week.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Please take a second to let me you were here!

Have a blessed Sunday!

Hello blogging friends!  I have not posted a lot this week because I have been working on a project that took a while. Anyway, I am now ready to share it with you!

I repurposed a glass candle jar for this quilled project. Inside is a garden of roses, hearts, a vine, and leaves. It is a little hard to take great pictures through the glass, but hopefully you can see what I did. After the quilling was finished, I made a sentiment on my computer and added an eyelet to run the ribbon through. I just tied it around the top of the jar. What do you think?

Thank you so much for stopping by! Please take a second to let me you were here!

Happy Crafting!

Hello dear blogging friends!. Popping in with my Viva la Verve card for this week. This is the one for the VLV  February Week 1 sketch.

(A2; Stamps: Verve (You and I); Punch: Martha Stewart;  EF: Cuttlebug)

For the background, I dry embossed and used a white ink pad “direct to paper”. I also used the ink pad around the edges of the black mat, added stitching and a white paper flower with a blue enamel dot.

Thanks for stopping by!

Here is a link to the challenge so you can join in the fun!

Happy Crafting!!!
