Love Needs No Words

 Good morning!
It has been a rather cold weekend in Alberta.
Some areas have received their first snow fall of the year
and boy has it been a doozy.

Today, I wanted to high light
two different stamp sets
Spring Zen is where the cross comes from
Spencer's Set is where I found a sentiment.
 This is a different kind of sympathy card.
People know just how much we care
and we love them so much but sometimes
during such difficult circumstances
their just are no words but
the special people in our lives know.
Just how much we love them because we are there.

This however, doesn't have to be a sympathy card
God, doesn't need to use words to let us
know how much we are loved by him.
"Love needs no words"

Please join us Monday - Friday over at our blog
my fellow Design Team members will not disappoint 
you for inspiration.

Thank you so much for joining me.
Have a fantastic day
May it be filled with many blessings.

Taking Pics

Good morning my friends!
It has been a whirl wind week here.
How on earth did we get to Thursday already?
The last Thursday of September...what????
We have been blessed
with watching our grandson this week.

Today over at Creative Knockouts
we have a brand new challenge for you!
Challenge #317
Anything Goes

Our wonderful sponsors for this week are
They are letting me highlight

Prize: 3 Images
 I chose this image to high light
because it reminds
me of some very special girls
who are wonderful photographers.
This card was made for one girl in
mind as she has such stunning pictures.
When I saw this digi
Ceri popped into my mind.

Hoping she likes this card.

The image was colored by Copic Markers
I dug into my stash to use
ribbon and left over scrapped papers.
Paper is from Stampin' Up
The clouds embossing folder is from Darcie.

I adore the image of the lighthouse
in the lens. It reminds me of  one of the 
lighthouses in Prince Edward Island.

So our challenge is Anything Goes, please
come and show us what inspires you
this week. We would love to see your inspiration.

Thank you so much for joining me.
Have an amazing day!

 Good morning!
This past week has been busy crazy
but their has been some real
We got a chance to see my college bestie and her family
on Friday/Saturday
and watch her daughter play volleyball against ours.
(it has been a couple of years)
It was also beautiful
to see my nieces wedding photos/video, it truly was an
amazing day and warms my heart
to see everyone so very happy!

So see these special people in my
life although, we don't talk often
or see one another often, touched my heart.
I love them all dearly and life has
a way of being so busy
that connecting just doesn't seem to happen
for either sides.

So my card was created with these friends in mind.
The Project Bin had the perfect sentiment
#bff stamp set
and the heart die is from

 As you can tell the last few
cards, that have been made are 
with more fall colors.
I do love it when the trees change colors
and the richness just makes
me want to curl up with
a cup of hot chocolate.

Be sure to join us each day on The Project Bin blog
my talented DT friends will inspire you.

Thank you so much for stopping by
Have an amazing week ahead

other unknowns to have happened.
I messed up my days of the week,
then rushed to get my DT card done for

When I went to put my card on this morning for

My card is finally done and on here with the right

Keep Sake

 Happy first Monday of September!
One more day of Summer  holidays for our Kaitlyn and Summer
then they are back into school.
Volleyball tryouts and a busy schedule ahead.
This weekend we went from a household of 6
down to 3 as we moved Robin, Summer and Emery
into their new place.
It is sure to be a very exciting week ahead
for everyone.

The stamp set,
I want to  highlight today is called
clear stamps, photopolymer stamps, sentiments,, keepsake cards, stamping, paper crafts
It is a brand new set
that has one large sentiment
and then two small stamps
I am thinking that it would be fun
to put this in a picture frame
or put it on a nicely stained piece of wood 
and then seal it on.

This was inspired by my mom
she is an amazing crafter who has taught
me so much over the years.
She makes 300-400 cards a year,
that she gives to family and friends.
Birthday's, Anniversary's, Easter, Halloween (kids that come to the door),
Valentines Day, Christmas.
Each one unique and different.

Something no matter what it is should be treasured because
they are simply made with a whole lot of

Hop on over to The Project Bin Monday-Friday
and see even more inspiration with these wonderful stamps.

Thank you so much for dropping by
