Gecko Galz and Summer Traveling and a Freebie

It's been a busy summer for me with moving my mother and summer traveling.  Using Digital images can make card making a snap.  My favorite Digital Studio  is Gecko Galz - so much to choose from, I can always find beautiful images for any occasion! 

I made this card for my Niece's graduation using the Drawing Board Set and First Class Passage Paper Pack 





Here is a Beautiful Freebie from Gecko Galz!





Using digitals can be simply done using Word or Publisher, you can create depth and shadow with a click!  Or you can print and cut and hand layer. This summer time seems to be in short commodity so putting my inkjet printer to work is a great alternative!  
Thanks for stopping by and check out the Gecko Galz Blog for more ideas ( along with mine this month) on using digitials!

Word Art Wednesday!



Happy Word Art Wednesday everyone! I hope you stop over to the blog and join in the fun, We have an inspiring and uplifting devotion by Karen Letchworth and another beautiful bible verse digitized by Karen Murray! 

This week we have THREE Sponsors: the first is Wild Orchid Crafts and they have a special package of flowers and leaves for 1 lucky winner and the second  is,  A gift certificate to  Jane's Doodles - Digital shop.  the 3rd is a Sunny Studios $25 US physical prize These are such delightful images! 

This week I used and Oldie but Goodie stamp!  Long time ago when this stamp came out I colored it with Chalk, back when Chalk was the latest and greatest coloring tool.  I still love that medium but I have to say alcohol marker gave me the color I really wanted!

My card for this weeks verse: 










I love this verse, I truly feel His goodness and mercy following me. I have walked with the Lord for 38 years now, that is 13, 870 days.  To know His peace and steadfastness every minute of every day is amazing.  You can know that too!  Pick up a bible and start reading the gospel of John, and He will show you the way!

HAve a wonderful day,

Whats On Your Work Desk # 473 and a Freebie!

I've been missing for a month or so from Julia's World Wide blog hop of crafting spaces for the same reason I went missing for a year or so - moving!  This time I had the happy event of moving my mother from her home in Connecticut to our home in New York.  can I say I am sick of moving?  I thought at least this one won't touch my craft room.  I was wrong!  While I was away I had ordered a few second hand sets of stamps, I won't go into detail, Steve reads my blog 😆. and then there was the new cable service, new phone service and new internet service.  I am so fortunate Steve can do all this stuff and he worked so hard. Here is one of my work areas:

I was pretty tired from the move, but I couldn't wait to get back into my craft room - and find my new normal.  After two days of unpacking and rearranging the house, I got back downstairs to my little haven.

Wires all cleverly tucked away

Dry desk, a finished card for a sketch challenge


Wet desk, a DT card in the making

Today's freebie:

It is a beautiful day here in Central New York, and we'll be off for a drive and lunch at a local eatery.
Thanks for stopping by on the craft desk blog hop, you can go here and make more stops around the world  at Julia's Blog

Butterfly Cards For the Children's Hospital and a Butterfly Freebie!

A few more cards for the Hospital Challenge over at Christian Card Makers.

this is an oldie but goodie stamp, and the background paper is from a pad at AC Moore.

I stamped the butterfly twice to make a pop out.  Colored with Alcohol Marker and then painted with clear nail polish that has superfin golf glitter in it. 



I also made the fun batch of cards while I was in CT.  I purchase a "Kit" similar to the ones I make and just had fun making cards with a new sentiment set. 


And here is a freebie for your papercrafting:


Happy First Day Of Summer!

A Challange to Support Families in Need and a Freebie

Over at my FB group Christian Card Makers, we are running a challenge to support a local Ronald McDonald. Each of the participators will be making 30 cards to send to the challenge hostess.  These cards will then go to the Ronald McDonald House.  The house receives approximately 50 families a week, families that will be receiving medical care at the  Levine's Children's Hospital.  I thought I would share with you the cards I am making and also a freebie for your card making.
 for my first set of cards I am using a beautiful Magenta stamp:







I heat embossed the image on designer paper and then fussy cut
I used Nuvo drops in the flower center and white pen to high light the flower petals


The cards require only one of two  sentiments 'Welcome' and 'Just for you'
I created this digital set for my groups members and am happy to share it with you




I used my Scan'n Cut after printing.
I  am glad to support these types of organizations with  my card.  I'll also be sharing the Troop cards I've been making for Operation Quiet Comfort
Thanks for stopping by!
