I used the Argyle cuttlebug embossing folder and then I use 2 different color ink pads doing the DTP technique [direct to paper]
I have decided to use the other cheerleader card I shared with you last week, for my nephew's birthday. Since, I used red, white, and blue to color her in, I thought it would be a patriotic card. Thank you, for praying for him and the other soldiers, who are serving our country and helping others.
God Bless, ~~Inkyhive
I hope this will give you a lift to create something today. ~~Inkyhive

I still would like your input on what you think the cheerleader card could be used for.
If you have any problem let me know and I will see what I can do, though I must tell you, I am not real computer savvy!

All 3 stamps used on the front of this card are from AJ's Country Stampin's. I have had the flower and hello stamp for quite some time and the watering can image, I stamped in May, while I visited Amy. Hopefully, in the next month we will get together, but lately our calendar's just don't connect! :D
This time I didn't follow a sketch, I laid the cream card stock on a strip of brown card stock which had been sitting on the yellow and I thought it went together. I stamped the flower using a yellow ink on the yellow paper and then the hello is stamped with brown ink. I had used a lace punch on the brown paper, but I didn't like the look, so I'll use that paper another time. I seldom throw away anything, though I really do need to go through some of my piles and discard some. I mean how much can one really use??? It's one thing IF you use it up. . .however I have 'several' boxes of pieces of paper and stamped images from at least 7 years ago and I keep saying I need to use it up, I have more than enough odds and ends! I do believe I have come to the conclusion it isn't going to get done, so perhaps I should look for someone or ones to share it with.
Looks like it is a nice day, so I think I will go outside, at least for a few minutes and enjoy the beauty, the Lord has brought my way, today.
May you have a wonderful Saturday.
In Christ alone my hope is found; He is my Light, my strength, my song.
I will be back later, when I get another card or two to post. I wanted to thank everyone who has written me, wishing my Birthday wishes.

Today's card, I am sending to my nephew who is serving our country. The bear is from an envelope, that I received recently. After, cutting it out, I layered it on blue, then white, and finally red paper. I then put it on white cardstock and stamped the "Thinking of You". That stamp is by Sweet Impressions and I really like the font. It is my favorite thinking of you stamp, because of the font.
As some of you know, my birthday was yesterday and Mr. Inky and I went to the Milwaukee Zoo. We had a nice day and the Lord provided nice weather. It wasn't too hot and while the Zoo was open there was no rain, no thunderstorms. Driving down, we had some heavy rain for a little over an hour. At times we had to really slow down. Since we weren't sure what the day was going to bring we had back-up plans, but once we got to the Zoo, the rain stopped so we decided to stay. Another time we will go to The Domes. They are 3 buildings shape like beehives and they house plants. One is arid, one is rainforest, and the other one changes, depending on the season. It was nice to be in Milwaukee for fun and not at the hospital because of my knee :D
May you have a wonderful evening.
hugs and Prayers,
May the mind of Christ, my Savior live in me from day to day;
By His love and pow'r controlling all I do and say.

As you can see I didn't complete it yesterday. I'm not sure what saying I will add it to. I bought the stamp at a rummage sale a few weeks back and it came by itself. I haven't decided who I am sending the card to, thus I haven't decided what I want it to say! Could be a birthday card, could be an encouragement card, could be for a soldier. . . if you have any ideas, please leave me a comment.

Here is one of the cards I made. I decided to use this stamp, as I had been working in the yard. This stamp is by AJ's Country Stampin's
I used chalks to color and then sealed it with hair spray. I'm sorry the sky doesn't show up well. It is more vivid in real life.
Here is a card I made several years ago, long before I saw this sketch : ) This is also the first card I ever submitted to a magazine AND the first card of mine that was published! It was in VSN (Vamp Stamp News). I'm sorry, I can't recall the issue, at the moment.
The bandaide is by CowTown Stamps http://www.cowtownstamps.com/
and the cute bear is by Morning Star http://www.morningstarstamps.com/
Well, it is time for me, to see what I am going to do today. I hope you are enjoying the summer and you are getting some time to stamp.

The first card I want to share with you, is from a challenge I saw on Denise's blog. Denise posted a challenge to use orange and brown along with some rick rack on your card. The rick rack could be ribbon, a brad, a stamp. It took me a couple of hours to come up with my design, but once it hit, it came together quickly! The bear is from a gift tag that I had gotten some years ago. I tend to save lots and like to recycle when I can. The rick rack tab is from a Stamping Up Stamp and then I punched it out with a tab punch. I used my Score-It to make the lines and then took some brown ink to go over the embossed lines. After that I punched the holes to complete the look of notebook paper.
Thank you, for letting me share what I came up with.

I hope you all have a fun, relaxing, and safe Independence Day. We stayed around home and got a lot accomplished! I am sorry, I didn't do any stamping and I know my stamps and ink are calling out. "Have you forgotten us?!?"
Today, I hope to get a card or two made, but till then I will share with you a card I made some time ago.
