wedding card

I went to the sweetest wedding last weekend. So I made this card for my dear friend Amy and her new hubby! She was such a beautiful and happy bride. Amy has an amazing story of Gods grace, mercy and goodness! She once was a meth. addict and she lost over 10 years of her life to drugs. But our God-Savior,Redeemer, and Restorer got a hold of her heart and forever changed her life into one of great beauty. While serving God at church-her prince came! And now I pray they will live happily ever after!

Creature card

My sons love to draw me pictures of googly eyed creatures when I saw this CTMH stamp set Merry Monsters-I had to have it for them! They are going to have so much fun stamping and making some very cute cards with it! I saw and was inspired by a card that Mercy Kerin did and so I had to pull it out and play with it myself.
Blessings to you! Jolena

Birthday gift card

I've decided that gift cards are great gifts to give! No stressing about whether they will like, want or need your gift. Just send them shopping to pick out exactly what they want!!
I made this Birthday gift card with yet more Twitterpated paper, and I pulled out an older but cute animal stamp set In The Wild.
Blessings to you!

Altered Picture Frame

I bought this unfinished frame at Michaels for $1.00. I decoupaged it with the twitter-pated paper, and added some buttons and ribbon. I love it! The best part is the picture of my beautiful Peyton Blaise!!

A simple thankyou

Love the Notebook papers-I havent used them near enough. I made this simple little thankyou card, I used a chipboard frame, and the cute little dragon fly is CTMH rub-on, and the Thankyou stampset. I love to make cards-I really need to get better about sending them to people though!!


I'm so excited about the Close To My Heart Autumn/
Winter Idea Book. As always it is full of beautiful papers, stamps,embellishments and more!! I have a huge want list! Here is a little card that I made from Jeanette Lyntons how to book Wishes. I used the new stamp Delightful Things,I embellished with twilight corduroy brads,and I used the new Grace papers{I love that word Grace! The Bible definition-Gods unmerited favor. Gods kindness to each of us, and we didn't or couldn't do anything to deserve it-it's free! I'm so thankful that He just loves us and gives us the gift of His grace not just for our salvation but for the victory we need in every circumstance every single day in our lives!(I like the acronym: God's Riches At Christs Expense.)
Ephesians 2:8-9 God saved you by His grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.”}
