Praying for You

Never think that what you have to offer is insignificant.
There will always be someone out there that needs what you have to give.

Good morning!
Monday is here is with a vengeance it seems!
I hope you all have a great week!

I made this card for the Progressive Freebie challenge at the Outlawz!

The Outlawz: RAK/Random Acts of Kindness

Thought for the day
Appreciate good people. They are hard to come by.


Good morning! 
Another beautiful day here in Arizona. I almost feel guilty for our weather because of the snow that people are digging out of right now back east. However, my trade off is 115-120 degree summer days! I do however, hope they see that cold stuff thaw soon! (brrrrr)

Today is the start of a new CAS Challenge week at The Outlawz!

Our challenge this week is to create an RAK or Random Act of Kindness Card.
So I made a "Thanks" card using an absolutely adorable pen-goo-in stamp my daughter sent me from Japan a while back.
(Yes I know penguin is the correct spelling and correct pronunciation is pen-gwens, but I have been calling them pen-goo-ins since I was little) ... anyway....
I think I am going to start stamping him on the back of my cards, using the word bubble for my initials! 
The card is lightly layered. I added the bit of dots around the image and border with a black fine tip pen.

I have someone in mind for this card but that is my little secret!

Card size: A2
Card stock from The Paper Studio and Stampin Up!
Black India Ink from Memories
Black Precision Pen from American Crafts
Penguin image - unknown (gift from daughter in Japan)
Sentiment from "Tag Tidbits" by The Angel Company

Thanks for Stopping by!

Big Bear Birthday Wishes!

Thought for the Day
It is not flesh and blood but the heart which makes us fathers and sons.
Johann Schiller

Good morning!
Yesterday was my Step Father-in-laws Birthday.
A momentous day, for a momentous Man!

I wish him joy and happiness and peace now and for more years to come.

Here is the card I made for him.

5 x 7
I use card map VLVNov2012 from Verve for my card layout. I stamped the "wood" plank onto gray card stock, cut to size and I used fun foam to it a bit of lift and added to the card base.
My Black Bear image was also stamped onto gray card stock then fussy cut. He is attached to the card with foam dots
