inspired by: industrial charm

my father passed away unexpectedly and in an instant after a day of fishing on may 7...his favorite past time especially since losing my mom five years ago. it was a shock to us, but he really did get a first class ticket; he died doing what he loved and never knew he left the world! to be parentless is the greatest feeling of emptiness I have ever felt in my is the kind of heartache you can feel in your bones. I will miss them greatly, but I have made it a priority to keep them alive in truth and honor! I anxiously await what the Lord has for me and my hubs, this is a BIG transition and I feel changes coming! always make the most of everyday, life has no guarantees!

as you see it - celebrate

hello friends it is time for another as you see it challenge and this week we are challenging you to greys and it is a speed stamper week. confession, I am not good at this at all...I am such a grazer when I am This took me about 15 mins not including drying time of the background, of course you can use a heat gun to speed this process up. I prefer to let mine air dry so I can graze on something I have used the sketch from the fusion challenge and a few glittery stars, the bold celebrate sentiment is from sugarpea stamps, celebrate all the things. Be sure to check out the rest of the design teams blogs to see what they created!

inspired by - make a wish

hello and happy day, it is time for the inspired by challenge for the week and it is fun! We are using products from SRM stickers and they have so graciously provided us with stickers to use. All of the elements of my card except for the balloons are stickers, so fun; huh? I was inspired by the adorable colors and the balloons and party feel. I watercolored the balloons and then added a little stickles, everything else is stickers...I luv how it turned out. Be sure to stop by SRM and see what you can pick up for yourself *grin*.
