The following cards were made to honor my cousin, Mathew.  They were given to family members in sympathy of our recent loss of this special man. It was a helpful action of grief to be creative and make something to show my love.   Mathew was gentle, had a contagious smile and determination to set his own course to surpass many odds and predictions.

This is the lovely "Lotus Blossom" in Wisteria Wonder.  The sentiment is from the "Sheltering Tree" stamp set.


"Painted Petals" is so elegant in Lost Lagoon.

This is the "Butterfly Basics" stamp set with the "Irresistibly Yours" Specialty Designer Series Paper.

I loved this design and CASEd it from this blog.

Thank you for visiting and I hope that these cards will give you inspiration for your loved ones.

Creating Beauty in Thankfulnesss

I've been having fun with my new Occasions and Sale-A-Brations stamps.

"Butterfly Basics" is so subdued and striking with a tea lace doilie and the note tag punch stamped with "You Brighten My Day" stamps in the Sale-A-Brations booklet.  

I love this sentiment - it is truly my foundation for my life and gratitude for my Savior.  God has allowed trials and hardships but I always find something to be thankful for in my life.  Actually I always find many things to be thankful for.  Colors, sunlight, nature, are all topics that I can find numerous items of amazing beauty, hope and be thankful for.

I would love to have your kind comments and then please join me at my Facebook page for upcoming events and classes.
