"This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another,
God lives in us and his love is made complete in us." ~ 1 John 4:9-12

OOH-LA-LA / RS #31 & DD #22...


HaPpY sAtUrDaY!!! Yay for the weekend! The only way my weekend would be better is if I didn't have 8 loads of laundry to fold and out away - LOL! How does THAT happen, anyway? Oh well...

We have a great sketch today over at RetroSketches... I love this fun layout! I've been dying to use my Ooh-La-La set from The Alley Way Stamps again... what a great girl~y set! I rocked the lips in Real Red and Cherry Cobbler. 

Someone asked about the big dots embossing, it's a folder and can you tell I am addicted to it? To get this effect, I put the paper in and then when I feed it into my Big Shot, I just crank it through only partially... sometimes I also put my paper in, set it on the floor and emboss it with the heel of my foot if I just want a little hint of embossing in the center area of the card (like this card).


I also played along with Dynamic Duos... I didn't know it at the time, but when I just checked I realized that this card was perfect for it!



Thanks so much for stopping by! There is STILL time to do the TAWS New Release Blog Hop AND the ADFD Mini Halloween'y Blog Hop - so don't miss out!


Have an awesome weekend,

THANKFUL / FTL #209 & CTD #211...


Good morning! Here's a quick little card! This will be quick because I should have left the office 5 minutes ago - LOL! The sets I used are below, but the leaf is from a new set from The Alley Way Stamps coming out tomorrow called It's Fall About You!

   

I played along with the Fall-to Layout and the new Color Throwdown - both gorgeous!


Have an awesome day!

SWEET SAILBOAT / SSSC #168 & TAWS Sneak Peek Day 3...



Hello! It's day 3 of The Alley Way Stamps October Release Sneak Peeks! This new set is called Kid n'Caboodle! It is so full of fun images for all kinds of kiddie cards! And big kiddie cards, too, I suppose! I dug out (literally) my little box of washi tapes, found 3 that I liked and they inspired the color scheme.  I "washi-pieced" the little boat. Since washi isn't totally sticky, I laid a piece over the stamped image and carefully trimmed around the area with an exacto knife. Then I just peeled off the excess. Very easy!

Be sure to go over to the TAWS blog to find out how you could win a free October Release set!

I am also giving away a free set. After the hop on Thursday, I will draw a name from everyone who left a comment  on any of my 3 sneak peek posts and blog hop post, so be sure to come back each day! 



I used the sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. It seems like it's been forever since I played along with one of Karen's awesome sketches!


Bye for now...

THINKING OF YOU / CQC#156...


Well, I am finally getting around to posting my colourQ card for today! I had a bad migraine, Alex's soccer game and then we went out to dinner with my brother and his family. By the time we got home my head was splitting! But now it's better... YAY!

I love this week's colors - so FALL~ish! I am so ready for fall, the chill in the air, the pumpkin patch... all the wonderfulness! My card layout was inspired by one I saw from a recent colourQ, this sweet and simple card by Meghan. I used Awesome Blossom, and rocked the flowers with the 2 oranges. If you click and enlarge the picture, you'll see I added stickles.


Have a great day!

THANKS / RS #30 & CTD #210...


Happy Saturday! We have a new RETROsketch today, and I love it's simplicity! It was designed by our September Headliner, Wendy. The colors are from this week's Color Throwdown. I used Awesome Blossom - my new favorite - from The Alley Way Stamps. Once I stamped on the script patterned paper, I also embossed it, I wished it showed up a little better!


Have a great day!

THANKFUL / FTL #208 & CFC #71...


Here's another quick one for today, seriously - this card was FAST! I stamped the flower image from Awesome Blossom onto kraft with kraft ink. I cut the little banners, & I inked the the word "thanks" minus the "s" from the set Jobber Jabber and stamped the "ful" from the set Alphabet Soup. Added the twine and button and BOOOOM - I was done! I love how all these sets from The Alley Way Stamps work so well together!

      

I played along with the sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping and the theme from CASual Fridays!



Bye for now...
