I added black checkered ribbon and stamped the sentiment in black. I luv these clean and simple cards, they really do make a statement. The base of the card is black so I finished the inside as well to make it easier for writing a note. Enjoy your evening!

Verve Project Parade-It' A Girl Thing

Good morning everyone, it is Wednesday and we are half through the work week. I am thrilled to bring you my project for the last day of the Verve Project Parade , you can see all of my project here. The theme for the Verve project is "It's A Girl Thing", be sure to check out all the divas fabulous creations.
I have chose my Mother to honor, she has taught me so much and for that I am grateful. She started encouraging me as a young girl to write notes of care and thank you notes. I was collecting the pretty boxes full of stationary made by the gold crown company when I was very young. I would send notes to my friends, always send thank you notes after birthdays and holidays, and greetings cards to relatives as I got older.

I have always been attracted to boxes, tins and keepsake holders; which brings me to my keepsake box full of handmade cards. These boxes are totally awesome, I got them from Taylored Expessions. I used my Verve set Because of You and several of the Plain Jane sets to embellish the box and create my cards. I used this beautiful dp from My Minds Eye called French Flea Market, a checkered brown ribbon and the gorgeous chocolate pearls from Kaiser. I hope you like my girly keepsake box, it was fun to create and reminisce about the past things Mom has taught me.
You still have one more day to play along with us. Just make a project or card that fits your style and celebrates a woman in your life. It can be any woman ... mom, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, teacher - you get the idea! Just add your project link to the Mr. Linky form here before 8PM Mountain on Thursday, May 14th. Two random participants will be chosen and win $25 gift certificates to the Verve Store. Have fun and good luck! Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!

Well as you can see the colors of the CD are: basic black, real red, yo-yo yellow, and white. I used summer sun instead of yo-yo yellow and riding hood red instead of real red.

Let's Pray

I created this for todays LSC219, to be inspired by a May holiday and for yesterdays WT217 to use kraft. Yesterday was National Day of Prayer, our country is in need of sooo much right now. If you haven't prayed today, say a prayer for our nation, a neighbor, a loved one, or even yourself.
I need a sympathy card and thought this verse by Verve is perfect for sympathy, it is one of my favorite sciptures. This scripture is soooo comforting to me and I hope it brings comfort to the family I am sending it to. I used my Janome again, my sewing on this one is not perfect, I am trying to live with those types of things. I can't tell you the times I re-do the stuff I hate, it doesn't look as bad in person as it does on the digital photo. I used the textured dp from SU called Parisian Breeze. DH and I are going out for breakfast, we have the day off. I hope you enjoy your Friday!
