Spinner Masculine

Spinner Die Card #2 - This is card #2 of my Spinner Die from Karen B. I decided on a Masculine card and doing something out of the box - so the front of the card is much different than the inside - however, I followed the Tree Pattern cardstock by cutting a tree with a die cut for the inside. 
This is one fabulous die - Spinner Die by Karen B! Happy to own it. Thanks for dropping by - Gail

The spinner part is the sentiment that hides behind this tag and spins out when the card is opened

Spinner Card

Howdy Crafters - This is my first try at the Spinner Square Die Cut By Karen B - I watched her You Tube Video - Click HERE - and went from there. It was a challenge with my glue being all over the place - I switched to score tape for many of the parts - but I still was getting glue on my clear cardstock [because me and glue do not get along with it comes to acrylic or clear cardstock - nothing to do with the assembly process of using this die cut - I love this die cut!! - Oh well - my first try and more cards to come in the future.

This is an A2 size Christmas Card - thanks for dropping by - Gail

Mother's Day Mocha Card

Howdy Crafters - Love me a coffee card creation - today's card features SVG cuts - The Coffee Cup, with top mat shaped, the Lid, and sweet Mikala Ann Paper Doll are all by Regina Easter.

I used Ranger Acrylic Ink to do the background - added Pop up Foam by Scotch behind Mikala Ann, and markers for coloring - I finished the card off with Baker's Twine and a Mother's Day Sentiment by Lawn Fawn Stamps inside - using the Misti/Versafine Black ink - recycled cardboard layered with patterned cardstock and cut MFT-Die-Namics Stitched Die through my Cuttlebug Machine

The Mocha on the front coffee cup by Beccy's Place is also a Clear Stamp I had Regina Easter make for me - including more stamps in that set. [SVG & Print N Cuts through my Portrait machine] ATG

There is a Cyber Sale at the Cutting Cafe today, Sunday April 22 - through Midnight Monday, April 23. This coffee cup is included in the batch sale or you can purchase it separately. Click Here for the Store.

The coffee cup that has Mocha stamped on it, can be ordered through Beccy's Place store -First Day Jitters Collections [minus the stamp because that is from my personal collection]

I would like to share my Coffee Mother's Day Card with these challenges:

Bible Journal Page

Howdy Crafters ~ I created this Bible Journal Page this morning. I have been listening to Even If by Mercy Me which inspired me to do my Bible Journal Page today. Here is the link and the Testimony by the singer if you wish to visit You Tube. Click HERE

My Sweet Husband is going through radiation and cancer treatments  this month~ I Know God is able and I know He can Heal my husband by His Mighty Hand but even if he doesn't I still trust Him and like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego stated to the King..." but even if God doesn't rescue us from the fire we will never serve other gods.I cannot even image being placed in that type of situation... but I do know that Jesus stated there will be troubles in this world, but have Faith... He has gone to prepare a place for us - this Earth is a mere journey in these bodies-- someday all sickness and sadness will no longer exist. I trust in Jesus Christ, My King and Savior.

Thank you for dropping by ~ have a blessed day.
