Happy birthday, Michele!

I am so excited to be a part of today's hop to celebrate Michele's birthday. She is the owner of our favorite bling company, Want2Scrap, which offers so many lovely products to help us create beautiful things. I first met Michele a few years ago when I attended CHA for the first time. Stacey, owner of Spellbinders, introduced us and I have been blessed by her ever since. I had the privilege to see her again, though only briefly, at a recent Scrapbook Expo in GA.
Thank you, Michele, for your love, generosity and encouragement. I love working for and with you and the entire Want2Scrap team! I hope you have a wonderful birthday.

I have a simple card today to honor Michele. I have very limited supplies on hand due to our travels and whipped this baby up in no time. The card base is store-bought. The layered bird and frame are Webster's Pages. The sentiments are by SRM Stickers. And of course, the bling is by Want2Scrap.

The ribbon is seam binding. I just love that color! And the Want2Scrap bling is just perfect to accentuate the sentiment.

Feeling blessed and a trio of cards

Oh my poor neglected blog. I have missed posting, but am still busy traveling and visiting friends, churches and family. It's been so wonderful seeing so many dear ones again after years of being away. What a gift from the Lord friendships are! There is a blessedness being a part of God's church that is truly unique to us. For those we knew before, there's no absence, or long distance that could diminish our friendships. For those we just met, there seems an instant connection that overcomes cultural and language barriers. And of course it is because of our mutual love for Christ that makes all these possible. I feel truly blessed!

Now onto my card...I have some mixed-media inspired cards for you today that were posted earlier on the Want2Scrap blog

Here is a close up of one. I had fun making these tags! The white text is from Penny Black’s Love Chapter. The sentiments are by Penny Black's Dahlias set.

Hello, Sweet Lady

Long time, no post...I know. I am stateside right now with lots of travel. I have projects to share, but haven't been able to find a block of time just to sit down and work on the computer. It has been a wonderful time of reunion, fellowship and just enjoying every conversation in our native tongue! :) We got to celebrate 4th of July on American soil with our loved ones here and that was such a treat for our family.

Today's card uses two of my favorite sets, Sweet Silhouettes and Sweet Sentiments. The frame is die cut with Spellbinders Labels 10.

The papers are October Afternoon. I embellished the card with my staple Want2Scrap pearls, doily, buttons, ribbon and paper flower.

Have a wonderful day and stay cool!
