iheart2stamp challenge-070508



This is my entry for the Sketch for You to Try at http://www.iheart2stamp.com/. The stamp is one I received this week from Lisbet at Scrapmagasinet http://scrapmagasinet.blogspot.com/ She was having blog candy and I won. This stamp line is so cute. It is called the Rakle Collection and there are lots of stamps. Go take a look at the cute creations she has as well as the stamps. The cardstock and designer paper are CTMH. The brads are a long time item of mine and I have no idea where I got them. The sentiment is printed on the computer, and the flower is from Petaloo. Layering and paper piecing are the techniques I used.

I am really trying to catch up on lots of things I have neglected this weekend. I was given an award this week from Bev at "All the Things I Love" http://bevscrafts.blogspot.com/ but I am not computer savvy and my big kids are out of town so I cannot get the award symbol to tranfer to my blog. It was "The Brilliante Weblog Premio 2008" award and I was so honored to be chosen by her for this. I am to nominate 7 more people, but until I can show the award, I think it best to wait.

My encouragement for today is:

"Creativity is God's gift to you. What you do with it is your gift to God"-- ---Bob Moawad

I found two new blogs this week and I want ya'll to go look and let them know how well they are doing. The first is Christie's http://www.blessingsonpaper.com/ It is awesome. The next is http://polkadotmoon.blogspot.com/ Ya'll stop by and comment and give them encouragement. Comments are always a good incentive booster and can get those artist juices flowing.

I have a few more challenges to complete and I will see ya'll back this week. As always---be safe, be happy, be healthy--hug those you love, an extra hug or two won't hurt--and the most important, God Bless Ya'll!!!
