Card and Bookmark

Today I am meeting with a group of women who have been in a Book Study at church, Crossroads Community Church.   We have been doing a book study since the beginning of the year and have finished reading the book and are meeting for a breakfast at a local cafe, J's Cafe on Main Street in Westminster, MD.   I CASEd a card/bookmark from fellow demo, Brianna Thompson and had my Stamp Club members make it for one of their May projects.   I wanted to make something for these women of the Book study, more than just a card, Thanking them on walking thru this path of my journey with me, encouraging me and  just sharing their life with me.

I used some of my beloved Baja Breeze Card stock and ink.   I figure that I would share something I love with these women who have shared so much with me.

ENJOY and share today....a smile, a handshake, a kind word,  a hug, a card, an act of kindness.

More Challenge cards

I got a few more challenge cards from my friend, Joyce,    I know there is probably an easier way to do this, and I hope to figure it out.   Until then, email me your challenge cards or go to my facebook page and post them there, Stamp with Stampergirl.

Joyce used the stamp set, Flower Shop which is probably one of my favorite sets.    Soon to be joined by the Petite Petals set....both with their matching punches....making it so easy to stamp and punch and create with.    Petite Petals is currently in the Occasions catalog, but you will be able to order it when the new catalog starts in June, because the stamp set and matching punch are both in it.   HOWEVER, if you want to save 15% on the bundle (stamp set and punch), you need to get it before June 1st.   The Bundle price will not be available in the New Catalog.   You can contact me to order your Bundle or go to my website, and SHOP NOW, Choose Occasions catalog and enter 134822 for clear mount and 134821 for wood mount.   Any questions, don't hesitate to contact me.

My challenge card

This post has been floatiing in internet land for about a week.    Sorry it is late and I am extending the date to May 26th.  
Color's my card..   The base is rich razzleberry and I embossed it with the pebble embossing folder from Sale a Bration ( which is in the new catalog for purchase). I used half of a doily and colored it with pool party ink and my aqua painter.   I punched out a tag with the scalloped tag topper punch in occasions catalog (also in the new catalog )used black staz on and the large flower stam from So very grateful in occasions catalog and not going to be in the new catalog 😢... I colored the flowers in using the aqua painter and pool party, Bermuda bay and pear pizzaz inks, some. I used rich razzleberry    I was making about 20 of these to give/send out as Mother's Day cards, however I stamped the flowers too high on tag 😥 lesson learned:  punch tag top before stamping....there was no room for Happy Mother's Day!!!   So friends I was hoping to send you a card for M D, however I didn't get them done, I have 20 done, but no greeting on them,  so maybe I will get them fixed and send out next week.   Sending lots of Love to all the Mothers whether you are a mother, or a sister,daughter, aunt or female --- you all give motherly love.
