Worthwhile Adventures ~

Hi everyone! I love this new silhouette set from Sweet'nSassy Stamps! This month has gone by without too much stamping or creating...I give a shout out to those who have been patient with me in the process. Your kindness is not easily forgotten.

Using the newly released Landscape Silhouettes and dkDesign Across the Miles. The multiple images between the two sets give endless options to the cards you can create. It would be appropriate to say I haven't even begun to delve into the possibilities!

I chose my card stock base to create the nautical look I wanted to achieve. The designer paper from SU is cut down to fit the base leaving some base colour showing. Next, I stamped the lighthouse silhouette directly onto the coordinating designer paper using versafine black. I trimmed it to fit the base and distressed the edges and layered it onto matching card stock. Lay this aside. I stamped the arrows and the mariners wheel to continue the theme on the card base.  Lastly, I stamped the quote above the lighthouse silhouette. I wrapped bakers twine on one end of the focal piece and adhered it onto the prepared base.

Enjoy your day!

Materials Used:
stamps: Landscape Silhouettes, Across the Miles
Inks: Versafine black

My Kind of Guy ~

I love this background stamp that easily completes a card as is. The different fonts pack a punch! I stamped it onto very vanilla cardstock and sponged it using distress inks by Ranger. I stamped it again a second time and cut out the words I wanted to highlight. I sponged the letters in Red, White and Blue. With the Armed Forces Day this past Saturday and Memorial Day coming up, this card honours all those in service.  

Have a beautiful Day and thank the Military.

Materials used:
stamps: My Guy precut set 
Paper: SU
Inks: Ranger distressed inks, SU Inks

Until Then My Father ~ Blessed Assurance

My Father entered into eternal Rest on May 5th at 6:24am EST in Ontario Canada where he resided. He leaves behind my mother, his wife of 49 years and 6 children and their spouses along with grandchildren and great grandchildren. 

Blessed Assurance, Jesus is mine!
Oh, what a foretaste of Glory Divine!
Heir of Salvation, purchase of God
Born of His Spirit, Washed in His blood

This is my story, this is my song.
Praising my Saviour all the day long

This was my father's favourite song, I sang this for him many times during my last visit with him in March. Now he sings with all of heaven.

Until then NiiDada, I will sing from here. I will see you again on the other side. I love you forever.

I AM the Vine ~

I Love this scripture from John 15...I combined it with the image from the Organic Fillers set to symbolize the producing of "much fruit"! Because my sentiment was not fitting the card front, I cut the scripture into strips to create a journal feel. I love reading what the Father says about me from HIS heart.

Have a wonderful day being fruitful in all you do as you Abide in the Vine!
