Saturday - a day of relaxing and crafting

I love days like this.  There was a ton of things to do today.  This morning I was able to meet a friend for breakfast at Panera and it was so nice to just visit and spend time with someone who....get's me.  Does that make sense?  This friend is such a blessing in my life and I value her so much.  When we get together we talk about everything from our jobs to our family to our faith to stamping.  It's so natural and comfortable.

After lunch and a couple errands I was able to spend an hour or so in my craft room.  I took the computer and listened to K-LOVE on iHeartRadio.

The first card I made is one I really enjoyed making and love how it turned out.  I was looking at the challenge blogs for inspiration and found a neat sketch on Unscripted Sketches (#256) then at Clear it Out Challenge the theme was "What's Your Style"....and Twisted Tuesday was black, white, and one other color.....  So I found a verse and an embossed piece of card stock that was sent to me as an RAK on SCS.  Add one color - red - and some bling.....and this is what I came up with:


This card is being entered in the following challenges:

The other card I made is just pure fun!  I love the image and inside the card is a Bible verse (part of the set).  It also shows one of my favorite embellishments - buttons.


I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
And before I leave you today I have to share a picture of my "baby"....I couldn't find him and wondered where he was.....well of course he was laying on my purse!

 
Thanks for stopping by today!  God bless you today!!!!!!
