With great sadness.......

With great sadness, we wanted to let all of our FTHS friends and customers know that Faith passed away last Thursday after a courageous battle with brain cancer.
 
You can see the full article here on the blog.
 
Her family and friends have set up a Go Fund Me to support her husband Nate and her children. Please keep her family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
 
Even though I never physically met Faith - she has inspired me thru her artistic talents. I was honored in 2011 when she asked if I would like to join her design team, at which time was know as Designed 2 Delight. I nervously made my 1st post on April 2, 2011 and the rest is history as they say. I have learned so much being on the design team and from Faith. She always had a kind word or encouragement when I needed it. Faith made me 'think outside the box' and do things I never thought I could.
 
 A while back - she had asked each of the DT members what they would like to see for a digi stamp set. We all gave her ideas - and she drew a digi set for EACH of us! This set has always had a place in my heart - but now it's even more special. She will be truly missed by all who's lives she has touched.
 
Faith - I will miss you and this is for you!

Challenge #340

Hello everyone!!
 
Sorry about no post last week. Julie, our owner and coordinator for the blog was out sick and had some issues getting our images.
 
BUT -  we are back and ready for another challenge!
 
Are you ready for another
 
This weeks challenge is:
 
Challenge # 340
Anything Goes
 
This weeks image is from Oddball Art. These images are so much fun to color and design with. As Lizzy puts it -  a Perfect Combo of Sweet & Sour Glittering Up the Grunge. And what a better way to get started on some of those holiday cards! This little gal is all colored up in 'traditional' Christmas green and red. I hope you like it !!

Paper: the Paper Studio Old World Winter
Color Medium: Copics
Other Supplies: Distress Ink Old Paper, Recollection Rhinestones, Mama Elephant Tags dies, Impression Obession Die 319-K Branches, Paper Smooches Christmas Sampler (sentiment), Wink of Stella Clear, Green and Pink, Heidi Swapp flowers, Spellbinders Deckled Rectangles dies

Some of you may have noticed that I have changed my background. I have been using the same one for quite some time now. Recently during the Amazon Prime deals day, I found this Instant Pop Up light studio for $10. I thought I would give it a try. Previously I was just using some foam board, patterned paper and a couple of my art lights. I wanted to see if this was any better, worse, the same? So feel free to give me some tips, tricks advise if you would like:)
 
Please make sure you stop by and leave some love with the rest of the DT. They have some wonderful cards and would love to hear from you.

Challenge #337

Hello crafty friends!!
 
Time for another
 
This weeks challenge is:
 
Challenge # 338
Anything Goes
 
This week I got to use an image from The Paper Shelter. It's funny that I got to use a Christmas image as this past weekend was our Christmas in July night at our local track where my son races. My grandkids got to visit Santa and let them know what they wanted this year :) I included a pic of my sons race car as well. Or as my 3 year old grandson says "Daddy's go-go car".



Well, I hope you like my card! I like the freedom you have to use the colored image if your 'pressed' for time - or you can color the image yourself.

Paper: the Paper Studio Old World Winter
Other Supplies: Wink of Stella Clear, Sizzix Framelits Dotted Squares, Recollections gems, Distress Ink Old Paper, Martha Stewart snowflake punch

Challenge #336

Howdy crafty friends!!!
Sorry I am a little late with this weeks post. Been a crazy busy last week or so and things just kind of 'got behind a bit' for me.
 
Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July!
 
So onto another

Challenge # 336
Anything Goes

This weeks image is from Digistamps4joy! I got to use a little creativity of mine own this week. We were given a bundle of images to work with and they had to do with gardening. We could use them separately if we wished. Or combine them. So I combined some together to make 1 single image using the multiple images.  I hope you like what I did :)

Color Medium: Copics
Other Supplies: atyou Spica pen 12 Silver, Martha Stewart Butterfly edge punch, Recollections Gems, Memory Box Stitched Rectangle Layer dies
