Photopolymer Stamps

I love how this card came together.  I used one of the new photopolymer sets to make the cross.  Easy to line up when the stamps are clear!  The set is called Show & Tell 2.
I also used the thank you from a new set called Lots of Thanks.  The ink and card stock are a new in-color called Baked Brown Sugar.
Want to know how I got the brown-hued rhinestone?  I just used a brown sharpie pen to color it!

Wildflower Meadow

I used the new Wildflower Meadow stamp and matching embossing folder to make this card.  It is a great new way to be able to stamp and then add dimension to your card--all matching!

Washi Tape

Stampin' Up is now offering Washi Tape which is so popular these days.  I created this card using the Gingham Garden Designer Washi Tape.  There are a lot of fun uses for this new embellishment!

Vocation Video

I don't often share personal experiences here, as this is my "Crafty" site, but I would like to share my son's vocation video for anyone who may be interested in viewing it.  Since I did mention previously that he was recently ordained a priest, you can see here how he was called to this vocation.

Ordination Thank You Cards

We had the most amazing weekend as our oldest son was ordained a Catholic priest in the Diocese of Sacramento!  What a moving event, and witnessing the beauty of the ritual was something I will always treasure.  
I offered to make thank you notes for him to use for his ordination gifts, and the one shown above was his favorite, so I am making most of them look like that.  I have a few others that I made, and will show those another time.
