Good Morning Bloggers!

This morning I have something that is not stamp or craft related to share with you.

One of my group members, who is also a blogger Jovi from Inky Impressions sent me this Video this morning and after watching it, I feel that I need to share it with as many people, (especially women ) as possible.

Please, I am begging you to go watch it! It could save your life!

Please share it with all of your friends and loved ones too!

Love & Hugs Lori

My very 1st set of Nestibilities!

I am so stinkin excited! A wonderful friend (who wishes to remain anonymous) has gifted me with my very 1st set! Here they are......are they cool or what!

I am so blessed by Jesus to have such a wonderful friend, aren't I.

She spoils me rotten and has sent me other amazing gifts, like the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder and so much more.

This is not what makes her my friend though. She is a loving, supportive and talented person. I am so honored to have her for my friend. This is why I respect her wish to remain anonymous!

She also sent me this great ATC! I just love ATC'S, don't you! I told you she is talented!

Thank you my sweet friend for just being my friend!
May the love of Jesus bless you!

Shades of Green!

Good Morning,
I am so far behind on my swaps!
I made these 2 cards for our shades of Green swap, although I only need one! LOL! Green is my favorite color in all the world. I love all colors but Green signifies Peace, tranquility and new birth. It just relaxes me!

The top card is of course a House Mouse Design Gruffie Bear called Party Preparations VR1005
on Lime Green cs. The background behind the image is a Glossy green cs made with Gold Pearl-Ex powder & PPA (Perfect Paper Adhesive).

Both of these cards are my very first attempt at using my Prisma Pencils with Gamsol (Oderless Mineral Spirits). I think they came out pretty good, except for the balloon. It was harder to get the color to blend well on that one. Just means I need more practice in larger areas. I was also thinking of stamping something in the balloon, like Happy Birthday or Celebrate!

This House Mouse Image is called "Make a Wish" #HMGR1011.
Also done on Lime Green c/s, run through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots Folder. The dark green piece was cut with scalloped decorative scissors and I didn't like the way the corners came out, so I punched them with my new corner rounder.
Then just under the image is this gorgeous Background paper, which you can't see how shimmery it is in the photo. I don't know who makes it, as it was gifted to me in a swap. If you know, I would love to know. The Happy Birthday Stamp is from an old
Hero Arts set called "Calligraphy Message Stamps". They may have been discontinued by now, as I bought them in the early 1990's.
Thanks for stopping by! Now I will go try to get some more done today to share with you! Hugs Lori
