Brrr...Winter is Near

Hello everyone!   You are Wanted at the Monday Greetings Challenge, at the Outlawz!
Come and join in the fun!

Our Sponsor this week is Sheepski Designs.

Here is the Image I chose to create with, Winter Robin.   He's a cute little fellow, sitting among the red berries and snow.  


Here are the ingredients added to my card:

Add in prisma color pencils, add in white texture paste with a pinch of opal white liquid pearls, and diamond stickles.   Next add in a dash of white glitter for some snow sparkle. :)

Jute was added to the bottom of image area, along with a spattering of white acrylic paint for a snowy effect.

Sentiment is from Stampin Up.  Little black gems were added in along with poinsettias.

Papers included: A Cozy Christmas pad - Hobby Lobby
Black sparkle - from my stash
And last but not least, Tim Holtz frayed burlap oxide was added around the edges of image, and sentiment.

Here is a close up of my card, to show the texture that was added.

Thank you, for coming by. ♥

Here is my card, (sample)


Inside of card, below...

I didn't have a stamp, so created it myself.
not too bad I guess.

I really love the Oxide Ink Pads, by Tim Holtz.  

Well, I'm signing off for now, our area is experiencing a bad ice storm... and even though I'm using my cell phone for internet, I can't be sure that it will remain on.

Thank you for stopping in!  :)

He's Makin' a List and Checkin' it Twice!

Hello and Welcome to my crafting corner..
I would like to tell you about my card I have made for Christmas Crafts All Year Round.
(You'll have to excuse the lighting) 
Its kind of hard to tell if I gave his face any coloring but I sure did.
This is my card made with our new digital image, "Checking it Twice".

How to make the beard white?  Well, I gave that a lot of thought.  So, I got out my liquid pearls in the shade of white opal, it wasn't bright white but it worked for what I wanted it to do.  Texture. 
Click on the photo to look more closely.
Anyway, I wanted to let you know that CCAYR is having a Challenge.  So hope to see you there!

Thanks for coming by to visit my blog.

Morning Glory Coffee Cup

Hello!  I just wanted to present another card using the same designed digital image of - Morning Glory Coffee Cup
I made this to fit into a A2 size envelope.   I can see this image being used as an invitation!   Or to send to a special someone, just to let them know, you are thinking of them.
I love the old-fashioned paper and the dainty lace.

This image is available in my Etsy Shop.  :)

"I Can"

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.  
Philippians 4:13

Sometimes we might think we can do things by our own strength, but when we rely on ourselves to do everything... eventually those things will start weighing us down.  This often happens to me.  I think, okay Lord, I can handle this matter, no problem.   But it's when those matters and cares of the world start to weigh heavy upon our shoulders that it can get us down.   We are weak.  But God is strong.  He can take all the worry & issues of the day and whisk them all away.   All it takes is for us to be willing to come to Him.  And lay it all down at the foot of the Cross.   His yoke is easy and His burden is Light.   He says, Come.  Come to Him and lay every burden down.  
May you know the Love that He has for you!
Mary ♥
