FTHS Love and Friendship Blog Hop

Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps Blog Hop!
Yes, From the Heart Stamps is back!!!!  
Faith is doing well and getting back to doing what she loves most!!! 
We have a Love and Friendship theme this month.
 Our designers are each showing a project created with this theme.
If you have arrived from Brenda's blog, you are in the right place, if not why don’t you start on the From the Heart Stamps blog, so you don’t miss anything.
Here is my project, using Faithful Friends Brotherly Love 
Nothing says "LOVE" and "FRIENDSHIP" like the bond between siblings.  I live this reality every day through my two youngest boys.  They are the best of friends and the worst of enemies at times, but those feuds don't last too long!  :)

My Door Is Always Open

Hi there-
So while on my little hiatus... I took some time to organize my little craft room. 
I'm still not done, but the majority of it is!!  :)  Now hopefully, I won't be making any double purchases for things I already have!!  :)  I know I'm not the only one that has done this!!  hehe

Today I created a trio set of cards.  I just couldn't help myself!!  :) 
Love the coffee cardstock on this card.

Happy Birthday

I am so excited to be writing my first post for 2017! 
After a little hiatus, I'm feeling a little rusty, but excited to weening myself back into it. 

Last year, I realized that I had a shortage of masculine birthday cards.  I am making it a point to make more of them this year!!  Especially now that the little ones are getting invited to birthday parties from classmates. Think it's a good idea to keep a healthy stock around.

{SS} Framed Poppies Garden

Hi everyone-
Have you missed me?  Well, I hope so, cause I have missed you all!
Things are still hectic around here, but they are going a lot smoother.
I've been staring at my stamps for weeks, so today I decided to actually make the time to do some crafting!  The idea for this card has been buzzing in my head, since having a conversation with my friend Amanda!   So I had to get it out.

Skipping Stones Blogs for Boobies Hop & Auction

Hello! Skipping Stones Design is having their third annual Blogs for Boobies blog hop and card auction to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation and I have been invited to join them! 
More than 60 designers will be participating in the hop/auction running from June 1st through June 7th! Hopefully, you've reached my blog by way of Penny Cunnigham Ward's blog' (if you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop, please click***HERE***).

This is a huge post packed with info, so bear with me... :) Want to support the cause?? 
Read on below to find out how:

For my card today, I am using Breathtaking Butterflies!I love layered cards, so keeping with I know and with what I love to do... I went for it!! I tried to get a good angle of the layers, but I had no such luck. Layers are beside the point... Do you see that embossed butterfly? Gorgeous right!!  I clear embossed and cut that piece into 4 equal parts.  Fraying/distressing the edges and then piecing back together.  I then stamped and embossed that beautiful sentiment on a vellum.
