Coffee and Chocolate


This is the second of the two cards I made for Julie's Caffeine Swap on SCS.  I have many, many stamps with a caffeine theme.  That must mean I love caffeine--coffee, lattes and chocolate are at the top of the list!  This stamp is a Crackerbox Palace stamp.  This is a local stamp store about 45 minutes away.  They have some wonderful stamps and most of them have a humorous side to them!

The other card for this swap was posted on Thursday if you look back at my coffee themed card!

Dueling Darlings Friends




It is the 15thof the month and that means we get to show off another Dueling Darlings challenge. Carol and Melina are the Darlings who came up the theme for August.   Carol is a Diva and Melina is a Dazzler. 

The theme for this month is  "Friends are the Family we Chose for Ourselves".  This is in keeping with the anniversary theme of being together for four years!

I laughed out loud when I open the package from Carol!  First, the image made me hoot and then there were about 5 or 6 different sentiments for us to chose from.  Then--the papers--lavender and purple tones.  Those are so not Carol and probably not me either.  But onward.......................

 
Here is the inside of my card:

Birdie Buddies Revealed



This is the card for the lucky 13th round of the Unidentified Image swap on SCS.  It is a group of ladies who are a part of a bi-monthly swap where we all use the same image, sent to us by the hostess.  The unidentified part is that we are to not discuss the image at all until the day they are to be posted--that is today!   The images for this round were provided by Heather.    She will swap the cards and include the next image that Lela, our next hostess, provides in our return envie.  And then we get to do it all again!!!! 

The image that Heather sent is really cute.  I love Whipper Snapper images and love to color them. 

Here is the inside of my card:
 
 

If you check some of the other blogs listed on my sidebars, you may find some other swappers who have posted their creations today or in the next few days.  I hope Heather and the others in this swap like my card!

Carriers of Faith



I am back with another Carriers of Faith challenge.  April is our hostess this month and she gave us this wonderful theme:

Since we post the day after my wedding anniversary, I would like everyone to make a project based on one of the scriptures read at my wedding:
Scripture: 1 Corinthians 13: 4-7 Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.your card doesn't need to be based on a spousal love, and as such, I would love to hear a story of one of your loves!


My card uses one of my favorite stamps that can be used for many occasions--wedding, thinking of you, Valentine's Day or in this case, Love!  I think this sentiment by Helen Keller expresses everything that love really is!


Here is the inside of my card:

 

Image/Sentiment—Northwoods Rubber Stamp

Cardstock/Patterned Paper—Gina K White; Stampin' Up Lost Lagoon, Crisp Cantaloupe, Strawberry Slush; Pebbles Garden Party Azalea/Daffodil Patterned Paper

Ink--SU Strawberry Slush

Accessories--SU Strawberry Slush Ruffle Ribbon; Buttons

Please check out the blogs of all of the Carriers of Faith.  I am sure you will enjoy all the wonderful creations!  All of the blogs are listed on my right sidebar. Thanks for joining us this month.
