BLOG HOP TODAY - TWO CARDS!!!

HELLO! Today is BLOG HOP day! This month Sweet 'n Sassy is having a Blog Hop and it will be a EXTRA PEEKS at Current Stamp Sets that are currently available!
My daughter, Grace wanted to play along too! So first I am showcasing her card. She is 7 years old and LOVES to stamp with me! She grabbed some of my scrap Designer Paper and used LOTS of glue for her beads. She used the Sweet 'n Sassy stamp set Love Blooms. This was Grace's personal lay out and design...
For my card, I used the Sweet Dreams set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I colored the owl and the branches with my Copic markers. The moon I stamped in Gold Ink and embossed with Clear EP. I cut out sleeping Olivia and adhered it to the Brilliant Blue Cardstock that I had run through the Top Note Die. Isn't she cute? I personally am in a HUGE CHARACTER BUILDING OPPORTUNITY - so I thought the saying in there was fitting and I know, there is no place I would rather be than resting in the arms of Jesus! Olivia looks so peaceful here - Now, since this is a BLOG HOP you will want to HOP

Start on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps blog and head to
Suzy
Korin
Lorie
Deb

HAPPY HOPPING! Have a FABULOUS day!

It is so wonderful that Grace loves to stamp too! I have to borrow someone else's girl if I want some craft time like that! ;) Grace, your card is beautiful!

So sorry you're having such a rough week...your sweet Olivia card really says it all! I love how she looks against that brilliant blue. Praying for you and for your friend's family.

Hi Chris, beautiful creation by your sweet daughter. My little one now 14 shares my passion too, and she loves it when time allows between studies. Oh and congratulations on your 1 year of Belli Challenges.
