A Lemon for #GDP022

#GDP022 073

“He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.”

-Psalm 103:3

  I needed two “gentlemen’s” cards this week and the challenge over at the Global Design Project com provided the perfect inspiration!

I used the new “Apple of My Eye” stamp set for this challenge.  I immediately thought of the lemon stamp when looking at this challenge.  Not sure why, but maybe because of two big “lemony” situations this past week (my friend Barbara’s cancer spreading and another friend that had a heart attack while shoveling snow on Tuesday!)  I’ve been setting up a prayer effort for Barbara and almost 150 people have joined in the gift of having at least one person a day say a decade of the rosary for Barbara’s healing journey.  It is just awesome how kind and giving people are.  If you can, please remember Barbara and her hubby and four sons in your prayers.  The “Hang in There” sentiment in the card below comes from the new Sale-A-Bration “Honeycomb Happiness” stamp set.  I cut the lemons out with a Starburst Framelit Die, it adds extra texture and pizzaz to the card!  The striped paper is the new thin envelope paper.  Ink Colors are Mint Macaron and Crushed Curry.  The yellow stripe is embossed with the Delicate Designs Embossing Folder.  The stripe was so pretty, I hated to cover it up!  I made matching envelopes, using just half of the lemon stamp and a smaller leaf that is in the set.

Stamping Classes will be held here next Monday morning, Monday evening and Tuesday morning.  We’ll be using the Apple of My Eye stamp set.  Looking forward to seeing all the Stamping Peacers!  Have a beautiful weekend, enjoy the snow that is coming! xo Dawn

Just For You #GDP021

Joshua's Birthday 024

“…go out in joy and be led forth in peace.”

~Isaiah 55:12

This is a quick card I made for this weeks Global Design Project, which is a color challenge.

I chose to focus on the Bermuda Bay, with a piece of Bermuda Bay designer series paper from the Perfectly Artistic DSP that is offered free in the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration Catalog until March 31st.   It didn’t photograph well, but it really is Bermuda Bay!  : )   Melon Mambo comes in on an “It’s My Party” Enamel Dot and on the Bakers Twine, and I dotted the “j” on the new Botanicals for You “just for you” stamp with a little flower stamped with Wisteria Wonder Ink.  This stamp set is also available free in the Sale-a-Bration catalog with a $50.00 order.  The “just for you” is heat embossed with black embossing powder.  Hope you have the time to hop over to and check out all the fun projects this week!  Stamping Peace, Dawn

P.S.  This card was made for a care package for a friend with cancer.  Please pray for Barbara as she prays and works for healing.
