Welcome to CCC#18.......looks a lot like Fall!


Happy Tuesday friends! Today I get to share a new Creative Colors Challenge with you all. I did not think I was able to get this one done as we had a water leak and a huge mess, but things are getting better and the wall in one of the bathrooms are drying nicely. Now I just have three big holes in the walls in the bathroom and in my dining room ceiling. Anyhow, here is my card I made for today's challenge where we were to use "Orange, Yellow, White and add Twine"

Welcome to the ODBD September 2014 Release Hop!

Hello and welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs September Release Hop! WOW, can you believe that it is September already? This year has gone by so fast. I don';t know about you, but I look forward to some cooler temperatures here soon, hopefully!  Living in Arizona, I do love the dry heat, but I am ready for a little cooler weather, in the 70's would be very nice, LOL!  Anyhow, you did not come here to hear me talk about the weather, you are here to see what I have come up with for the September Release for ODBD!  This month it is an amazing release, especially if you love doilies, great sentiments, knitting and sewing, yep, we have a little bit of everything for you. I have picked this amazing stamp set called Doily Blessings and the coordinating doily die and I am in love!  I could not wait for today to come along as I will most definitely be ordering some of the other sets as well. Let me get started and share my first project with you. I will start out with a tag, you all know how much I love making tags, so here we go


The Blessings Of The Lord

Paper: Recycled cereal box for my tag base, white card stock, DP from my stash (sorry, it was a single sheet I had and it does not have a name on it)

That is it for my first project and now on to my second one, which is a card. For this one I kept it very monochrome. I just played around with those two colors and I really loved how they kept it simple, yet elegant. So here is my card


You are such a blessing to me
