Handle With Prayer

Since joining the Shelter: Postmarked Ministry at 
the beginning of the year I've been using 
a lot more cards than before.
Here's a simple set I created using digis from 
A simple paper doily, the digi, and two little banners
is all it took to create these 
quick and easy cards.
The sentiment I stamped the jars with reads:
"Life is fragile...Handle with prayer."

Happy 60th

I made this card to congratulate some friends on 
60 years of marriage!
I love using my scissors to distress the stamped
pieces - it gives the card texture and softens the edges.
Here's the inside

Supplies and Tools: Love is a Great Thing (Stampin' Up), Chalkboard Sentiments (Anna Griffin), Gray Ink, Rhinestones,  Ribbon, Victoria Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug -Provo Craft)

Down by the Seaside

This clean and simple card was made using the 
Down by the Seaside stamp set from
Inkadinkado.
I used my Scholar Prismacolor pencils to color the image.
The splatters were made using my spritzer and metallic markers.

Door Cards

These front door cards were inspired by a Sketch from: 
"Card Sketches for Paper Crafts"
I embossed the door panels with the 
Wood Grain embossing folder from Darcie 
and inked their edges with the Tim Holtz blending tool.
The wreath is stamped using the 
All Season Wreath stamp set from Stampin' Up.
The mini flowers are from the Scalloped Daisy Punch (Fiskars)
I also added a small Baker's Twine bow to the top.

Here's a run down of the measurements I used 
for each set of panels 
should you want to try one of your own.
