A Time of Remembrance for Sandy Hook Elementary...Newtown, Connecticut

No Words Could Have Every Said It Better... Please take time to read the link below. I found this blog through Emma at My Creative Time posted by Lorie Allred of Allred Design. Thank You Lorie.
Twas' 11 days before Christmas, around 9:38
when 20 beautiful children stormed through heaven's gate.
their smiles were contagious, their laughter filled the air.
they could hardly believe all the beauty they saw there.
they were filled with such joy, they didn't know what to say.
they remembered nothing of what had happened earlier that day.
"where are we?" asked a little girl, as quiet as a mouse.
"this is heaven." declared a small boy. "we're spending Christmas at God's house."
when what to their wondering eyes did appear,
but Jesus, their savior, the children gathered near.
He looked at them and smiled, and they smiled just the same.
then He opened His arms and He called them by name.
and in that moment was joy, that only heaven can bring
those children all flew into the arms of their King
and as they lingered in the warmth of His embrace,
one small girl turned and looked at Jesus' face.
and as if He could read all the questions she had
He gently whispered to her, "I'll take care of mom and dad."
then He looked down on earth, the world far below
He saw all of the hurt, the sorrow, and woe
then He closed His eyes and He outstretched His hand,
"Let My power and presence re-enter this land!"
"may this country be delivered from the hands of fools"
"I'm taking back my nation. I'm taking back my schools!"
then He and the children stood up without a sound.
"come now my children, let me show you around."
excitement filled the space, some skipped and some ran.
all displaying enthusiasm that only a small child can.
and i heard Him proclaim as He walked out of sight,
"in the midst of this darkness, I AM STILL THE LIGHT."

On A Mission... "Otway Family - Missionary Trip"

Hello My Friends,
I know I have not been crafting on a regular, but I am working on trying to carve out some dedicated time. I soooo need it! This thing called "LIFE", just seems to keep getting in the way...go figure, uggghh! (lol).
Anyhew, I'm coming to you on another note,.. This is something that is very near and dear to my Heart and Soul. My SIS "Heidi Otway" (My BEST Friend and god-mother of each other's children) and her Beautiful Family are True Living Examples of a Family of Faith & Servants. They are all very active in their community and church. I was Sooo Over-Joyed and Emotional when I saw that Heidi & Richard were answering their calling to the Missionary Ministry. I was even more Tearfully Emotional when I saw that the children were going to be involved to. That's just the kind of family they are...and with two teenagers and one college student, you can imagine that their household is far from quiet and orderly...(lol). I could make this a long post going on and on about my SIS and her family (I love bragging about them :-) ), but I'll save that for another time and when we've both had enough coffee...LOL!
Some of you may know that any person going on a mission trip can be a bit expensive, but sending a Whole Family can leave your mouth in the "drop-jaw" state when adding up that cost. Well, un-knowingly to Heidi & Richard (shhh...), I decided to jump in and help where I could by spreading their Mission Trip news on my blog. My prayer and hopes are that my crafty peeps out there, with the Biggest Hearts I know, would read their story and hopefully want to help fund this trip with them. Any amount is helpful and they & I would be Forever... Very Thankful. You don't have to even leave your name if you don't want to... you can donate anonymously if you wish, however in your comments at the end, please indicate the following signature tag: "(crafty friend of SITM or Felicia)". I say this because once all donations have been made and calculated. I will be asking Heidi & Richard to forward me the names and comments of those donations with the above signature tag and I will be drawing a random winner to receive A Box FULL of Crafting Goodies!! What better way to start off the NEW YEAR than with some Awesome Craft Goodies! Here is a link below where you can read more about this trip:
My Heart is moved every time I think of them wanting to do this and I'm keeping this request in my prayers until their trip is completely funded. If you like, feel free to share this widget on your blog's side-bar. I would be Humbly Grateful!
Biggest Hugs & Heart-Felt Smooches...

It's The Most Wonderful Time...

Hi My Friends,
I wanted to post this card as my first time entering into the My Favorite Things (MFT) Guest Designer Contest. Let me tell you that I think these are going to be my newest favorite stamps. I am in love with just about everything in their store. I wish I could afford it all. They have a FAB-U-LOUS Release going on right now. Check it out here. Anyhew, here is the card I came up with for the sketch we were to follow.
For this card. I use the special T ripple Scoop Seasonal Sentiment Stamp set from MFT. I am soooo in Love with this set. I use some 5.5 x 5.5 kraft corrugated card stock as my base along with some PTI Buttons & Card stock. The pattern paper is from Recollections new 6x6 paper pad "Jolly Holiday". The first sentiment on the front was embossed with white embossing powder and I adhered two buttons and twine from the twinery with them. This is definitely a Jolly Holiday card and I Love how the inside came out too. I used MFT's Die-namics "Fancy Flourish" to accent the other sentiment on the inside. (This die cuts like butta'). I adhered some bling to the flourish points and used my MS Glitter pen to give it some sparkle. I also used some sparkle on the front of the card to for the mini wreaths on the pattern paper. I hope you like my card and for my "Enabler Alert"...go check out "My Favorite Things" site and store is the Bomb-Diggity. I certainly have a lot on my wish list from them this season. Big Hugs & Smooches...

Crazy About YOU...

Hi There...
It's ME again! Wow two post in one day. Well I figure I owe it to myself and YOU for visiting my blog when you do. I have another card for your viewing pleasure. This one is a not so CAS, but it was easy to put together. No Cricut Required...eeek! I promise I will get back to my cricut soon. I have so many scrap cuts left over from previous projects I might just see what I can make from them...he-he-he. I Really, Really Love this Card. This window card came together once I saw the paper I wanted to use and the perfect stamp in my stash caught my eye. Thinking about it now. I wish I had this card made during my anniversary to give to my husband. It's perfect for us. Anyhew, I used some of my favorite papers from DCWV and Stampin' UP to make this one. The embossed sentiment comes from SSS - "For the Record" stamp set. SSS is my new obsession at the moment. I'm so glad I joined their SSS Kit of the Month Club. The goodies in there are Soooo Fabulous! If you haven't had the crafty pleasure I suggest you try it out for 2-3 months. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
Craft Recipe:
Papers: DCWV (Orchard Stack), Stampin' UP (Pretty in Pink), Stash
Sentiment: Simon Says Stamp (For the Record), Studio G (Love Birds in Cage)
Tools: EK Success Circle Punch,
Embellies: Stickles, Stampin' Up Ribbon (Pretty in Pink)

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
Red Carpet Studio - "The Birds" (Create a card or project featuring a Bird)
My Craft Spot - "Emboss It!" (Heat, Dry,...etc)
3 Girl Jam - "Anything Goes w/Ribbon"
D.L. Art - "Anything Goes"

Falling for You...

Hello My Friends,
I'm here with cards that I love to do more than anything and that's CAS (clean and simple). These are always so quick to whip up especially when you find that your stash is completely out. No cutting mat, no adhering pieces, no cartridges...etc. I find myself creating these a lot more. Don't get me wrong, I Love My Cricut, but sometimes moving things around in my craft area just to get a few cuts can be a challenge; especially in my little area. Let's face it, for me, my craft area could really use some Maid Service...LOL! However if I had to pay someone to clean it I wouldn't have any funds for my hoarding craft addiction...LOL! I digress. Here is my card that I made using some left over hearts from this new EK Success punch I found at JoAnn's on sale (+plus my addt'l coupon). I sprinkled a few on the card and let them fall where they may, then I went back and glued them down one by one. The card still needed some jazzing up so I added some designs (polka dots, stickles, stripes) on the hearts. Then I went back and topped them off with glossy accents. The sentiment comes for SSS-Kelly Purkey "Autumn" stamp set. I added some embossing lines at the bottom of the card and Voila! A "Falling For YOU" card emerged. Hope you like it too.
I am entering this into the following challenges:
CAS-ual Fridays - "Put your Heart into It!" Create a CAS project with a Heart.
A Blog Named HERO - "Clean Up Your Act". Create a CAS card or project.
D.L. Art - "Anything Goes" - "Anything Goes" Thankful Thursday

Hi Everyone,
I trust you all are just as busy as I am. My Birthday (Month) Bash was a BLAST and very Memorable! As I'm winding down from all the lost sleep, it dawned on me that I still have even more to celebrate this month. My Wedding Anniversary is coming up next week (10/9-8yrs and counting <3)!...eek! (It's not that I forgot, but you know how things just slip up on ya...). Well... DH had plans for that weekend so, I will be M.I.A. from Blog-land for a while (sort of...lol <wink>).

In the meantime, I was able to crank out a quick card set last night for my step-daughter to give to her tutor (a family friend/Teacher) that's been helping her prepare for her SAT's the last few weeks (remember those days...yikes!). Anyway, they wouldn't accept any monetary payment from us, but we wanted to do something for them to show we appreciate them stepping in on such short notice. (Her test is this Saturday...please pray with us that she does an Excellent Job!).
Being that her tutor is a male, I didn't want to get to frilly with this card. You know how we crafters can be sometimes...lol. Here is the Gift Card Holder and Matching Card that I made for her to give to him after their last study session today. 
 (Inside this Card we put a Visa Gift Card)
 (Inside this Gift Card Holder we put a Subway Card, his favorite place)

Crazy About You...

Hellooo....
Well I couldn't resist coming back and doing one more card. I think I'm getting the hang of this washi tape a little. I like the effect is had on my cards. I kept this one Clean and Simple too, but I still think it came out great. The sentiment is from the New Stamp set "For the Record" from SSS, this set is one of the many that were designed by Kristina Werner...(A Fabulous Card Maker/Crafter). Love Her!
Anywho here my quick and cute card. Have a Fabulous Scrapping Day!
I am submitting this card for the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Challenge - Put a STAMP on It!...showcasing your washi tape.
D.L. Art Thankful Thursday - 1000 Post Link Party - Anything Goes!

...With Love

Hi My Friends,
I'm here to pop in with a quick clean and simple card I made. I used my Simon Says Stamp Kit from August? Did I mention how much I just LOVE their kits. It's packed with everything I can use, right from the box to make the perfect card or craft. If you haven't joined, I urge you to give it some serious thought. Here is the card I made...
I used the washi tape from the SSS kit as well as the sentiment and heart. I went around the card and dry embossed 1/4" lines to give it the outlined pattern. It looked to plain leaving the embossed lines white (at least my step-daughter thought so), so she suggested I trace inside the embossed lines with a black gel pen. This certainly made the card pop. I love that washi tape with the sentiment; it went perfect with the stamped sentiment from the Absolutely Delightful stamp set from SSS. This card will be for the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Challenge - Put a STAMP on It!...showcasing your washi tape.
CAS-ual Fridays - Embossing...create a card with Heat and/or Dry Embossing. 
D.L. Art Thankful Thursday - 1000 Post Link Party - Anything Goes!

Another Card Set...

Hey There Friend,
As you can tell, I'm on a roll. I've have another post of cards that I created to go along with the others on my previous post. Let's just say my friend will be stocked up for a while I hope. Here are some cards where I was playing around with my distress inks and man oh man do I Love how these came out. I almost didn't want to give them away, but for someone like her, she more than deserves it. I Love that reverse rubber stamp from Hero Arts. It really makes the flowers stand out. I kept it clean and simple with the card stock and sentiments I used from PTI's Think Big Favorites (can't remember which #'s). I added a touch of bling to some of the center of the flowers and WOW!, what a different a little bling makes. These cards with be entered into the following challenges: Hero Arts - "August Challenge-Sketch" and The Pink Elephant - "Sympathy/Thinking of You" Hope you like.

Cards & Note Card Set Pt. 1 of 3

Hi My Friends,
Well last night I delivered my "Care & Comfort Goodie Package" to my girlfriend. I didn't want to show too much here because I'm not sure how often she checks my blog. Luckily she hadn't seen it in a while (gotta get on her about that). Well... She Absolutely Loved, Loved, Loved IT!!! Forgive me, I didn't think to get pictures of the other stuff I put in here (shame on me) but I can share that there were some food comfort goodies (granola trial mix, V8 energy drink, sutter home, pre-sliced ready to eat fruit bowl...etc). She dug in right away. She LOVED all the cards so much, she wasn't sure if she might be able to give them away. I told her, I can always make more so feel free to share. She's a crafty person herself so I had to make sure (putting pressure on myself) that this package was crafted to the "T" or "C", whichever ...here is a glimpse of the paper crafts loaded in with her goodies along with the post from yesterday. (**Note: In an effort to post these multiple times in same challenge, I had to split up the posts, but hopefully when reading it will all flow together.)
I am really loving the latest release of dies & stamp sets from My Creative time. I used the 3x3 Tri-Fold Die and the 3x3 Envelope dies for this set. Paired it up with some DCWV paper, PTI buttons, Twine a little embossing and bling and it became quite a Notable Gift Set. This set will be entered in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge - "Anything Goes", Craft Your Passion - "Emboss It", The Pink Elephant - "Sympathy/Thinking of You".
