A request for prayers & a stamp giveaway

Hello Friends, I hope you had a nice and relaxing weekend. We actually had some sunshine which is so refreshing and a good way to start out the week. I hope your week is off to a good start :)

Happy Birthday
I am waiting for the new Penny Black flowers and thought it would be fun to see which ones are your favorite. I would love to know then, I can feature your favorites when it's my turn to create cards for the Penny Black Blog.  
I will choose a random winner to receive this "Star-Inspired" stamp when you "vote" on your favorite flower.
These are the flowers below I would love for you to vote on. I would love to hear your TOP TWO favorites. If you can tell me in the comment section on my blog that would be awesome! Thank you for taking the time to do this if you have time  :)

THESE ARE THE new eight EXQUISITE FLOWERS & it's so hard for me to choose. Your votes will help me decide which ones to feature.

This card below is one that I made for the catalog here and you will find a new video that I just saw was posted by Elizabeth!!  Her videos are always have such great ideas and tips. 

To color all of this particular flower I used Tombow watercolor markers. I think you will find this stamp easy to color and or paper piece. I cut some extra petals for leaves and embossed the background with the same flower. Pour some Glossy Accents in the middle to give it that extra little something.

Happy Birthday
A friend of mine is asking if you will say a prayer for her 3 year old son who was just diagnosed with leukemia. I am sure you can imagine how tragic this news is to hear from your pediatrician. Latrice is collecting cards to try and bring a little comfort to the family. You can read more about it & get the details here. I am always amazing at the card making community and what big hearts you all have.

I'll leave you with another flower. The bottom layer is embossed on vellum. Let me know if you have any questions. I am grateful for you visiting my blog. If you would like to see a flower I created with the clear set called "To You" click here. Thanks again :)  Hugs, Kathy

Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge








 
Hello Friends, If you are visiting for the first time...welcome to my blog. Today I am honored to be a guest designer at the Wee Memories Challenge Blog. Jenny is so talented and so creative that I jumped at the opportunity. Lawnscaping Challenge Blog is teaming up with Wee Memories this week and BOTH challenge blogs are being sponsored by Lawn Fawn. (can I say...Kelly is just adorable!!)  

 This is one of the two cards I created.
Say Cheese

I don't have any of Lawn Fawn's critters so I used some of my favorite sets to make some "cute" scenes. For the first card I created the fish bowls with these Lunar Light stamps and the cuddly fish are from this set. The shell "wallpaper" was make with Worn Lipstick distress ink and the shell stamp from the same set. The awesome Polaroid stamp is from this set. (I always loved taking Polaroid photos)
Just wavin' hello
The idea behind this card...is....I wanted the dolphin to be jumping out of his "pool" to grab one of the fish from the decorations. I cut a circle from my Spellbinders and drew some triangles on it for the pool. The clouds were airbrushed with Copic markers with this punch. For the smaller cloud you can trim the larger one down to a small size. Love these yummy papers from Penny Black.

Just wavin' hello

Keep in mind you have until Sunday night to submit your sparkly card for Penny Black's weekly challenge. You can find the details here.  I hope you have lots of sunshine in your weekend and a big thanks to Jenny for letting me play along with Wee Memories Challenge Blog today. Hugs,Kathy

P.S. I thought it would be fun to share two other cards I made with this same set last year?
