make your own...

Good morning all!  Sorry that my post is a bit late.  Todays Papertake Weekly challenge is entitled "Make Your Own".  I choose to make my own flowers using a Cuttlebug quilling kit that I bought ages ago and never tried out.  I have to say that making the flowers was quite a bit easier then I thought it would be and am pleasantly surprised at the out come.  Why don't you join us and play along?

all things girlie...

Hello all!  Sorry for the very late post this week.  My poor laptop died over the weekend and it took me until today to get a new (to me anyway) one up and running.  I am blessed that the only thing I lost was all of my un-watermarked pictures of my cards and other projects.  Everything else was saved so I can not complain.  A big thanks to my oldest son Matt who took my old laptop and his old laptop and some spare parts and made me a "new" computer, then did all the work of transfer and rescuing my data.  He is my hero!

Anyway back to stamping business; my card for today is for this weeks Papertake Weekly challenge; All Things Girlie.  I used a verse from Our Daily Bread Designs Flowering Faith, my current fav set and some very yummy ribbon from Stampin' Up, layered on top of some Prima Fairy Belle designer paper.  If that doesn't scream girlie, I don't know what would...

strawberries and cream...

Good morning all!  It is once again Tuesday and time for another Papertake Weekly challenge.  This weeks challenge is entitled Strawberries and Cream.  Now most of the other girlies on the design team were clever enough to plan far enough ahead to manage to procure paper and/or charms with strawberries but noooooo Debi is not capable of that much fore thought and planning so the best she could manage was the lovely colors. (now you would think that someplace among the 10 million pieces of paper I have I would have some lovely strawberries but no, I don't because I looked, for what seemed like forever, before I gave up)

What I used:
Our Daily Bread Flowering Faith
SU melon mambo, basic black, old olive
Basic Grey Out of Print

clear embossing powder, Prima flowers, Spellbinders, SU ribbon

Our Daily Bread Designs July new release blog hop

Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs July new release blog hop!  If you arrived here from Grace's blog you are in the right place if not you make want to hop on over to the Our Daily Bread Designs blog to begin the hop at the beginning, because you know you don't want to miss a single stop along the way.

This month's hop will run from 8am July 1st thru 8pm July 2nd EDT.  The winners will be announced July 3rd on the ODBD blog.  Just make sure you visit each of the teams blogs and leave the girls some love.  The hop ends at the ODBD blog and just leave us a comment there to let us know that you finished.

I am honored to be returning to the bread basket after a brief hiatus (to get my work life and home life in balance again) where I played along with the challenge team.  How exciting is it to return to the design team just as Kelley is releasing these fabulous sets!  On my card I used both the Surging Sea and Smooth Sailing set.  I love that she included the compass rosette in the Smooth Sailing set which makes it super easy to add several layers to the image from Surging Sea and it works well to create a background when random stamped.
