Celebrating with Our Friend, Zella

This month of July our SCS Crafty Girls Blog Hop is set up to highlight our friend Zella.   If you haven't spent time at her Blog - Joyful Expressions.   Make sure you stop by and spend some time seeing all of her cute stamping creations that will be sure to make you smile.    Here's my card inspired by Zella:

Zella is on the DT for Twist of Faith so I used one of their challenges #42, the sketch.  She's also on the DT for (Pin)spirational Challenges so I dug through some stamped images (She's always using ones from swaps).   I had to find an image that would work for this week's challenge.  Of course, I knew Zella would like the verse too.  

Be sure to check out the other SCS Crafty Gals Blogs listed to the right.  

Supplies:  My Mind's Eye Honey Cake Papers, Stampabilities Walk by Faith Stamp, SU Choc Chip Ink, , CTMH Brown Sparkles, Ribbon Boutique Ribbon

Hello Blooms!

 Hello, hello and Happy Monday!    I'm traveling for work and this week I'm in TN!  Last week I got to enjoy a beautiful courtyard area at the hotel we stayed at for work.  There were some lovely flowers and I LOVE to photograph flowers ... Ahhh such Inspiration!

My card for this week's ABC Challenge #35 - Anything Goes is all about Flower Blooms as well.  I think goes with this picture because the stamps are titled,  "Hello Blooms"!   I hope you have a good week and get some time to "get inky" and play your favorite Challenge or 2 ...

Supplies:   CTMH Claire Paper,  CTMH Stamps Hello Blooms, CTMH Ink Outdoor Denim, Sunset,  CTMH Pink Button Assortment,  CTMH Outdoor Denim Ribbon
