Smile

     Hello again!  Since I've been on Instagram I've found new to me stamp companies.  This card is from one of them, Altenew.  The set is Simple Flowers along with Smile.
Linda Carson, Altenew
     The ink is Shades of Purple by Altenew.  I'm really impressed with this company.  The inks are work great on sentiments too.  Here I thought only Versafine worked for sentiments.
     I added several layers to the smile for dimension and sequins just for fun.  The frame die is MFT.
     I hope you have reasons to smile today!  I do when you visit and leave comments!  Have a wonderful day!

25th Wedding Anniversary

 
     Today is our 25the Wedding Anniversary! 
     After being widowed for a couple of years I prayed about a husband.  I prayed that if God didn't want me to remarry that's fine but just in case He did I would like a husband who loved to fish, golf and had no children.  I wanted children of my own.  He also had to be a Christian.  That's all I prayed for.
     About a month later, maybe less, a mutual friend set us up on a blind date.  I had only 1 blind date in my life and it was horrible beyond belief!!  Well, I thought about that date but decided that maybe this time would be better and I would at least make a new friend.
     When I opened the door and saw him my first thought was, "I'm in trouble now!"  Here stood my answer to prayer!  He was everything I prayed for and even more I didn't!
     Six months later we were married.  We married on a Wednesday night after church so anyone who wanted to stay could stay.  I worked there so a lot of people stayed and more friends/family showed up.  The church was decorated for Christmas so it was really a beautiful service. 
     Thank you Lord for answering my prayers more than I could ever think or ask!
    

Stinky Friends

     I bet that title got your attention!  This Little Stinker from Neat & Tangled was too cute to pass up. 
Linda Carson, Neat&Tangled
      Thought to myself that a black/white card would go good with a skunk so I used the MFT chevron fringe die for the rows.   Sometimes I amaze myself with these brilliant ideas!
     Throw in some sequins, yarn, some odor and a pop of color and you have it!!  Easy and fun!
     I think it would stink if you didn't have a wonderful week my friends!  Thanks for visiting!!

A Bushel and A Peck

     Hello again!  I hope you enjoyed the Thanksgiving weekend!  We had a good time at my brother's.  We live in the same city so no traveling involved.  Of course this does cut into leftovers.
     I realize I should be showing Christmas cards but I haven't started them yet.  I have for you today another Harvest Mouse from MFT.
Linda Carson, MFT

        I used MFT's Blueprints dies number 27 .  This afternoon I took advantage of MFT's Black Friday sale!  It was 30% off.  They just don't have discounts like that during the year. 
     I'm on Black Friday sale overload with all these stamp companies!!  They're giving me a headache trying to keep them all straight!
     Hope you grabbed some bargains.  Remember tomorrow is Cyber Monday.......just saving Santa the trouble!!
     Have a great week!

Bear Hugs

     Hello friends!  Looks like it's been awhile!  Today's card is Hugs from Concord and 9th.  I think it's a hoot!
Linda Carson
     The bear was colored with Zig Clean Color Brush Markers on water colored paper.  It's the first time I've used them.  I think I'm hooked.  I may need a different brand of paper though. 
     The hills are dies from MFT.  As you can see I ran them through an embossing folder.  I'm not sure who made the clouds.  The sky was airbrushed. 
      Thanks for stopping by!  Considered yourself hugged!!
