Joy and Happiness Anniversary – CAS19

It’s a quiet and rainy Monday here in Jackson and I am spending the day in my craft room, or in the “bunker” as my hubby and son call it.  My space is a small two room area off the dining room with shelves and a L-shaped craft table.  It has a window and pretty good lighting.  We haven’t found out the original purpose of the previous owners, but it is absolutely perfect for my papercrafts.

CAS19  Joy and Happiness Dryer SheetI had a marvelous day last Friday.  Two great friends from church, Marie and Pamela, came over to learn how to make cards.  I came up with a few projects and we spent the day laughing, sharing and creating.  What a blessing to have such good friends!  They are certainly a gift from God.

So, back to Monday and the Clean and Simple SCS sketch challenge that you can see here. I pulled out one of my first Stampin’ Up sets and used the dryer sheet technique that my great friend and demo Lisa taught me last year and made this simple anniversary card for my nephew and his wife-Nathan and Amber.  It was so pretty and so easy I made four of them in just under an hour.  How’s that for simple?

I hope your week is off to a wonderful start!  Our little 7-8 year old All Star baseball team play every night this week.  My sweet little great-nephew Anthony is on the team and my hubby is a coach- so I will be traveling to the ball park to help cheer them on.

Wedding Elegance – FS110

What a wonderful Sunday it has been!  We had a guest speaker at church this morning and he was absolutely awesome.  Jeff Helton from Fellowship Bible Church in Brentwood, Tennessee spoke on “Afflictions” from Paul’s first letter to the Thessalonians.  The message is on our church website and I encourage you to visit and listen.  Are you a Timothy?

I have worked on this card while watching Phil Mickelson at the Doral today.  The SCS Featured Stamper is Stacy Morgan, aka Twinshappy and her gallery is incredible.  I chose this card and used a different flourish image and changed the black to gold, plus changed the sentiment.  Her card is perfect in black and white and I love the clean, sharp and simple style.  The photo didn’t turn out real well- the gold embossing doesn’t show up very well, but IRL this is a very pretty card.


Thanks for dropping by and Blessings,
