With a little help from a friend!

I'm back..............................................Oh and did I mention that I signed up with Lori Stigler in Nashville to be my upline for Stampin UP!  Yes I needed a new lease on stamping and I have always loved Stampin UP!  So if anyone needs anything, anything at all from Stampin UP!  talk to me and help me stay in business for a while.  I have a new bunch of stamps (I sold all my other ones almost) and now I'm in the groove.  I'm stamping and playing everyday and I'm happy, so here's a little sample of some of the things I've done.
This is an Tim Holtz embossing folder then I used a Darice embossing folder to do the Cross.  After I adhered everything together I added a tiny border to the bottom from Dazzles.  Then I must have took 15 pictures and couldn't get the glare out of it so.  Here you be.

 This one is a Darice embossing folder and I water colored the images embossed on the sheet, put a bow from Stampin UP! bow punch, some shiny grass and I'm done.  I like the softness of the whole card yet the pop of grass.

 These are some of my favorite cards from the Gina K Designs and I used my Copic's to color the images then I added a pinwheel brad, some Washi Tape as the background and I was done.

 The verses that go with these cards are all individual stamps so you can put what you want on the inside of the card and 'Yes I can relate to all the verses.
 This is a little owl card that I made for a swap that I'm in every month (2nd month I've partaken) so I guess I really am getting back into this.  I just missed being able to make something nice.

 Now here is my favorite card so far.  I love the paper (just scraps I don't even know who makes them) I had the die cut and the Martha Stewart doily I got the orange ribbon flower online and just put the little cross in it.  I added a MS butterfly that I added some color to and its done except for the inside of the card.

I've been doing alot of paper inside the card also it helps to finish off the card and make it look more professional.  I follow Darsie Bruno's blog she's come a long way from when we were all on DeeDee's team of card makers.  Now she designs for Spellbinders and about 10 other companies.  She's just amazing and I doubt I will ever be as good as her but its something to work for.

Now before I sign off I want you to know I've been real close to shutting down the blog because I don't here any comments probably because I'm so infrequent but I'm am trying so if I know someone is watching I'll continue otherwise I'm going to quit posting and spend more time creating.  Thanks for taking the time to look and thanks for believing in me when I lost hope in believing anything.  God Bless and know God is always with you.  That's something I forgot for a while.  Have a great day catch you in a few.  LOL
