Hello Friends

I hope you had a good week. I made this card a white ago and just got around to finishing it off.  I embossed this lovely flower stamp from Unity called Insightful Meadows with white embossing powder. Then I used my Brusho Crystal Colours Turquoise and Sea Green.  The Brusho does all of the work and creates this lovely background. I wanted to add some texture so I found some old seed beads just to give it a different look.  I love to experiment with different things.

The God's Timing sentiment  was stamped with the Hero Arts Ombre Ink this one is the Pool to Navy. I bought mine at Hobby Lobby and used a coupon.   I am not sure if I like it I need to play a little more with it.  But the idea is really nice where you have instant ombre without having to do it yourself.

I love the end result of this card. I hope you like it too.  I so need to send this card to myself ha :) timing is a funny old thing.  Waiting is hard for me. As I am sure it is for most of us. I have some things in my life I want to happen. It is hard to wait. But I know there is a perfect timing for everything. It is true God's timing is perfect and I just need to trust it. Easier said than done though don't you think??  Take a flower and all that it goes through to become one. The seed is still at work under the earth before it emerges into the light . We see the part that pops through the soil, but lots of things have to happen before it gets to that stage we just don't get to see it.  Everything will fall into place when it is the right time to do so and not a minute before.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.

Friends with Flair @ Unity

Here is my Unity Friends with Flair entry.  I used my Feel the Joy stamp and used the generation stamping technique with memento ink. I then sponged the background in purple and deep pink pigment ink.  I mounted it on to white card and added the Happy Birthday sentiment at the bottom. It looked too plain so I added teeny weeny little butterflies from the butterfly punch from Martha Stewart.  P.S I ran out of daubers and all I could find was a magic eraser it did the trick as a makeshift sponge :)                                        If you want to take part hop along to Unity and enter  here I just had to make another card I just love this stamp I wish I had gotten it sooner it is so versatile. I think it may be my new favourite Unity Stamp :)                                                                           Thanks for visiting :)

Love You - Hot Pink

Happy Friday Friends :) I hope you all had a good week. Here is the card I made for this weeks friends with flair today.  I used two stamps on this card. The hearts are from the  You are my Main Squeeze stamp set. The sentiment is from the Strength & Dignity KOM 11/13 .  The vibrant pink colour is Picked Raspberry distress ink that I sponged all over the card. I embossed the hearts with white embossing powder. I really like he effect it created it looks almost like chalk.  Have a great weekend :)

Craft Stamper November Challenge

Hey Friends Welcome to a new  Craft Stamper  challenge for November. Can you believe we are almost at the end of the year already!!  Where did time go?? It has been pretty cold and frosty up here in Scotland for the last few nights.   But I am hanging on to Autumn as long as I can. I took a wee walk around the park and collected some lovely Autumn leaves.  I wanted to incorporate them into my project today.  I put the leaves in some paper and put them inside a heavy book overnight to press them down.  I started off with a white card base and used this sentiment stamp from Unity and repeat stamped all down the side of my card using Potting Soil Archival Ink. Then I went around the edges with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink.  Next I took my leaves and my paper punches and punched a heart shape out from the yellow leaf and then stuck it to my card with fabric glue.  Then I punched some hearts from the red leaves and put one inside t
