For the Birds – Faith Sings – Geometric Bird 3 with Heart

Hello from snowy Maine!

I have a bright, bold and cheerful almost one-layer card to share with you.

I did some ink-blending, stamping, fussy cutting, die cutting and masking to create this card. Besides the red heart die cut negative, the rest of the card is one-layer. I used only ink-blending and stamping on the white card base.

This card was partially inspired by the following card that I made in February of 2016. Slide002

Thanks for stopping by!

Grace, Peace, and Happy New Year,

Melissa

Purple Coneflowers with White Embossing

Hi! I’m here with a bright card on a gray wet day. Just a quick post because I am nursing my husband who has come down with a very bad cold/the flu and we are also trying to get ready for our moving company. They are coming on Monday!

I CASEd the lovely Anita’s beautiful creation for as this week’s Muse.

Here’s my CASE of Anita’s beauty.I decided to leave mine without a sentiment for now. I like that it is one layer. I heat embossed in white on fuchsia cardstock and then colored with a variety of Spectrum Noir markers and a black Sharpie.I’m going to share this on Instagram for The Daily Marker’s 30 Coloring challenge.

Do you use Instagram? I’d love to have you as a follower there! 🙂

Find me at honeybeelanecards.

I used the same stamp as Anita. It is called Echinacea Field, by Imagination Crafts.

I happened to buy this stamp in Dunoon, Scotland this past summer after attending the Happy Little Stampers stamping retreat in Swindon. I had the pleasure of meeting Anita as she was there too. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

Grace & Peace,

Rejoicing Posy

Hi. I worked on this card yesterday to distract myself from a bad outbreak of hives, but just could not make myself blog about it. I’m trying to post something every day for the The Daily Marker’s challenge, but I had to go to bed and try to get some rest.

So, here I am with a card for today.slide01 Just as applicable for today. slide01This day, this allergy triggered, hive-covered-body, getting-ready-for-another-international-move-day IS the day that the Lord has made. slide03

I WILL rejoice and be glad in it! If you are a person prayer, I would greatly appreciate your supplications on my behalf.

As you can see, I did some coloring on Kraft cardstock.

slide02  Some fussy cutting and a little stamping and I finished my card.slide02Thanks for stopping by!

Grace & Peace,

Melissa

It’s Crunch Time

10 days! Ten days until the first set of movers come to pack up my family’s household goods for our final (prayerfully) international move. We won’t have our things back with us for 3-6 months.

So. I need to be reminded. The Bible says that God is good all the time. Did you know, that according to the Guinness World Records that, “Although it is impossible to obtain exact figures, there is little doubt that the Bible is the world’s bestselling and most widely distributed book.”

When all around me things seems dark and impossible…….

slide04Also, I’m currently covered with nasty itchy horrid hives from an allergic reaction to, I believe, the hazelnut trees that surround my house. So, I’ve been distracting myself with organizing my craft supplies and doing a little crafting.

I love ink blending, so I incorporated that into my reminder.

slide01There’s still so much left to do, getting ready for an agricultural inspection, separating out what will go in the next smaller shipment (bedding, towels, kitchen supplies etc. – via plane), what we’ll put into our luggage, maybe mail some things to ourselves………etc.slide03so, it is truly…
