Candy Cassie Laurie Linda Tricia Trudy Barb Christi Shell Lisa SarahThis beautiful cross is called Cross Messages and along with this set there is Cross Messages additions. They go together and are very versatile. This one I cut out the crown of thorns and hung it around my cross I cut out. Added a bit of swiss dots to the background.
This cross is using the new die cross that is being released as well. All three layers of this cross are popped up after I cut them out with the cross die. This is a beautiful set and to have a cross die cut to match is awesome. I went with a more rich and olive color tone to this card. Added a few pearls and ribbon to finish it off.
Next is the set called Scriptures of Peace. Now I have to say that when I was working on these cards I was having a very bad day. So to sit and stamp out these scriptures on that day was very creative of God on his part. I needed to have peace and get my cards done all at once. ha ha He works in mysterious ways... I cut the little dove out and popped it up on dimensionals.

I am going to show you one of the sets today. This is called Beer Guzzlin Gus and he is a fun. I actually like this set for a few of our friends who razz me about the beer and what not they drink. One is over seas right now serving our country and I know he will get a kick out of the sentiments in this set, so I kept this fairly simple for him. I used the TS Monday challenge for my colors. Did you know that we post a new challenge every Monday? Be sure to check it out! I have added liquid glass to his glasses and I used a few spellbinders for framing. Now Jason who I am sending this to had a little beer gut before he left, however 10 months later he is probably not so flabby as he says. bawhaha

This is the left side and all my bins that hold my stamps. Yep too many is what your thinking. I even went through them and gave a bin full to a friends daughter. I decided to keep the laptop on the table also for my bloggin and web surfin. You never know what virus is out there and the new computer is not going to get it from my bloggin! :0) I am just so glad its all done. The rest of the room is a mess so I didn't show it to you. lol The boys are thrilled with their own rooms. So worth all the work and effort I say!

Sentimental Flowers from CDS. I sponged some clouds and added the flowers with the sentiment banner.
This one is again very simple with the flowers stamped and popped up on dimensionals with the sentiment underneath. Very clean and crisp feeling. I did add some pearls at the end just because. We got the rooms all moved and my new desk added to the old one. I will have a photo later tomorrow! Hope you have a wonderful day!
Why a blog hop for Katie?Katie has been diagnosed with Stage 4 stomach cancer. You can follow her story here on Katie's blog. Katie is journaling her journey and sharing it with us all. A very courageous and generous giving of herself to all of us who can find inspiration through her strength. We love you Katie!
What are we doing to help Katie?We, Katie's crafty family, have set up a blog just for her and our efforts to help her. The blog is called Help 4 Katie. When something like this hits a family, you just want to do something. Many, many have already helped Katie through our initial fund raising efforts at Jak Heath's blog. We thank you so much for all of your contributions to Katie. As we all know, medical treatment for cancer can be quite costly and we want to make sure that she has the absolute best! As of today, we are moving our efforts to a dedicated blog just for Katie.
What we have been doing is taking Digital Image donations from many generous artists in our crafting community, packaging them into a grouping, and then asking for a donation to receive these digi images. The first set of images come with a donation of $20, and are now available on Katie's new blog.
We have put together a second package for Katie to help raise funds to fight this cancer! This set of digital images has been donated to Katie. You can get this entire set of digis for only $15! The entire $15 goes to Katie and her family to help her fight this cancer! Please check out Katie's New Blog For all the details on the prizes and donating!
If you just came from Sarah's blog you are in the right spot. If you are just joining us head on over to the Lori's blog to start your hop! I used my Patchpal Giraffe for my card today. I am still not into the Digi world yet mostly because of our darn printer. One day though... ha ha I made a darling baby card with a little charm that I got long ago. Kept this very simple and sweet. I just adore this little giraffe patchpal. The baby sentiment is from the Patchpal sentiments.
Your next stop in Help for Katie Blog Hop is over to Cassie's Blog! Have a wonderful day!

Soon Easter will be here and I am getting ahead of the game once again. I need to finish up mine to send out so that when I make the ones for the girls at DH work I won't feel so behind. This egg is awesome its from You're Eggs-traordinary at Clear Dollar Stamps. I have colored the egg with copics and then cut it out and popped it up on dimensionals. I added three ribbons and a bit of swiss dots texturing at the bottom. Simple as can be but I love how the color just pops out at you with the white. What a surprise coming from me. ha ha If you have a Cricut Machine you will want to check out the new card files kit or SVG files that CDS has. You can read all about it HERE and HERE. Plus for you Digi lovers out there the new Digi's for CDS are available!
Well I have to start tearing down these three rooms today for Friday's big move. Yep we are moving my stamping room (sniff sniff) into the office with the puppy, computer etc. and giving the boys their own rooms. One of the big decisions we made when we decided not to sell the house. So lots of work for a 4 day weekend! EEK... Let's just pray that the rooms move without any problems. That includes taking down the stamping desk they built me awhile ago, moving it and making it bigger in the office. Ranger won't mind sharing with me, infact he will have a bigger desk to sprawl out under while I stamp. hee hee I will have a post on Friday for you since I had to work ahead. :0) Wish me luck! Hope you have a wonderful day today!

I went with one of the very first and still one of my favorite stamps and sentiments for my card. I adore this chubby little guy all full from his berry eating. hee hee This stamp is called Sleeping With Strawberries. I was looking through all the cards I made with this stamp alone and holy smokes I have 486 House Mouse cards in my file. WOW!!! Now that tells you I have used these for all they are worth and then some. DH was pretty surprised at how many cards I had in my file also. Its kinda nice to look back and all that you have done and grown. Anyways, I kept this simple and sweet with my gingham paper that I just love with the HM stamps. Added a bit of ribbon and button combo and popped him up on dimensionals.
Be sure to link up your creations over on the House Mouse and Friends Challenge Blog so you can have a chance at this weeks prize! Yep this week our sponsor for the challenge is a $15 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp Store. Have a wonderful day!

Now for my creation today. I just love the sets this release, this set alone has so many options. Incase you missed it this is called From the Desk of. I went with a very feminine feel with the colors, pearls and lace trim for this card. Isn't this image just wonderful, I just want to climb into the card and write a note.
The girls have some wonderful eye candy for you today as well:
Have a wonderful weekend!

Here is one of the cards inside. This holds 5x5 cards and envelopes. This is also for the Timeless Tuesday 104 challenge to use buttons. I am really getting used to using these more and more. Betty will be happy. ;0) hee hee
Here is a photo of one of the other cards in the box. I made several cards of the two you see here. I kept it fairly simple in a few of each. I know she is going to love this. The DP has some fancy sparkles to it but I couldn't get the photo to pick it up. If you click on any of the photos you can get a closer view of the detail. I adore this set!!!

For my card I pulled out the lovely Dove and Holly. I have added some pink to the doves along with each of the leaves. Layered with all three colors, added the beautiful red silk ribbon and a few pearls to finish my creation off. I just love these doves and I know that this isn't the last you will see of them before Christmas. Hope you get time to play along and you never know you might be next months winner!
