Faithful Love

Happy Valentine's Day!

I finished up my BAJ page on Psalm 25.  A lovely Psalm about dependance on the Lord, His strength, His compassion, His protection, and His love.  Perfect for Valentine's Day.

I started my page with a saved napkin from Tuesday night's Bunco.  I won little Bunco and had some of the best chocolate cake I have ever tasted.  My Sister is a wonderful cook, but she topped herself that night.  The hearts are so cute and I love using napkins on my BAJ pages - so easy and the look is awesome.  I then added a Dina Wakley decopage girl but I altered her to look a bit more like me (if I didn't dye my hair and had a few less wrinkles).  Stenciled on a few numbers and a corner, wrote out some words and it was done.

Showing this on **Art*Journal*Journey* hearts theme for Feb.

I also wanted to share my cute little Valentine's Day frog card that I shared on the DRS Designs blog yesterday.  The background is an inky mop up of distress oxides.  Added some stenciled letters and the Love You More greeting from DRS.  The star is the pink frog though.  I stamped the DRS Frog on a Log and colored her/him up with colored pencils.
The little flower and heart add to the Valentine's Theme.  This is going to my oldest daughter with her new weighted blanket I got her for Valentine's Day.  We have always said "I love you more" to each other so I know she will love this.

Hope your day is special and you get lots of candy and other treats.  We are celebrating big at work today - breakfast with fruit and breakfast burritos for Feb birthdays, pizza for lunch to celebrate a big accomplishment, and a giant candy and sweets table to celebrate Valentines. Just what a dieting girl needs!

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Bit of Tea, Horses, and a Cowboy

 I love when my children follow in my footsteps and beyond (only the cool footsteps, of course).   My daughter, Allie, has developed a love of tea.  She sent me this picture over the weekend of her having tea in her newly remodelled bedroom.   She was drinking Breakfast in Paris tea in one of her favorite thrift store mugs.  This is my ticket to the T-day gathering over at Elizabeth's blog .  To join us, all you have to do is have a drink related post (can be any type of drink).   The neighborhood horses have been gathering in our backyard for some reason. Our horse refuses to come up near our house because the lady who owns all these horses gives her much better treats.  They all jump the fences and visit everyone.  The mule in the picture is actually named after me because I named one of cows after the neighbor (he paid me back - lol). I gave them apples when they came on Sunday, and they have come back every day since - lol.  We had a bit of sadness yesterday when another neighb

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo
