Welcome to the World Record Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to the HOP and to my blog! This is a card I made this week with Unity stamps!

Card Ingredients: 80# matte cardstock, Bazzill Basics cardstock, Crate Paper patterned paper (Static Collection), Ranger Archival Ink (Jet Black), Unity Stamps (October/November KOTM), Basic Grey glazed brad, Copic Sketch markers, Nestabilities (Sml Classic Oval, Sml Scalloped Oval), Close to My Heart liquid glass, misc. twill ribbon and machine stitching.

This is a favorite quote:

"Perhaps, after all, our best thoughts come when we are alone. It is good to listen, not to voices but to the wind blowing, to the brook running cool over polished stones, to bees drowsy with the weight of pollen. If we attend to the music of the earth, we reach serenity. And then, in some unexplained way, we share it with others." Gladys Taber

Enjoy the journey!!! TTFN!

Keep It Simple Card Challenge

I was asked to be part of a new "Card Crew" at Scrapshotz. Thanks for the invitation, girls! I'm honored. I posted my first challenge today, and it will hopefully inspire some simple, easy to mail cards! This is the example I posted. I used Basic Grey patterned paper, the butterfly and sentiment are Rhonna Farrer rub ons, Stampendous bling stickers and Colorbox chalk ink.

This morning...

I woke up to a cold, miserable, rainy day. So I prayed for the strength to get up, get dressed and run five miles. Then I rolled over and went back to sleep. I had prayed for strength but received wisdom instead. Anonymous

Love that quote. LOL! Here's a card I made last week for a card tag at Scrapshotz.

More Layout Tags

Thank goodness for layout tags! I haven't done any scrapping for quite a while except for when I commit to a 'tag!'

This one was fun! I took an online course at ScrapShotz, taught by the talented (and patient!) Kathy Thompson. Here's my first digi tag layout!

Then just last week, we had another tag. I started this one off by choosing a layout from the Scrapshotz gallery for inspiration. Here's my lift!

Last week's card challenge was to use Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. I sprayed this card front with Hydrangea Glimmer Mist over a Tattered Angels Stencil, then added the sentiment, ribbon and the Kaiser pearls.

I was very pleased with how it turned out, and was honored that Cari Locken (she's on the Scrapshotz Creative Team) choose to showcase my card on the SSZ blog! Check it out here! Scrapshotz Blog
