My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Creatively Artsy is my CTMH blog and this is my FUN Blog.
Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

Light of the World


Welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Blog Hop.

I am one of the new designers. I will be with you for the next six months.
If you had told me a month ago that I would be using anything other then CTMH stamps, I would have told you you were crazy.
This was totally an act of God. I think he looked at me one day and said, "Nancy, I gave you talent, now stop wasting it. Go forth and pay it forward to a special friend."
It started with one phone call to me, then another surprising phone call back to her.
God surely works in mysterious way.
The new stamps in the June release are phenomenal.Be sure to keep on hoppin' for the next two days to see all of the fantastic artwork with these new sets.The Blog Hop schedule is in my side column if you need it.
Be sure to check out my second sample below and then hop on over to cortney's blog.

This card is 5.5" x 5.5" and the Stamp Set used is "Light of the World".

All papers are from the New Horizon's Paper Pack from Close to my Heart.

The stitching on the card is all done by hand with embroidery floss.

The lighthouse image was stamped three times, colored with Copic Markers, parts of it cut out and layered for a 3D affect.
