Eureka Blog Hop - Lucky You

I was asked to make something with  st Patricks Day theme.... Now Paddys day isnt something that we celebrate. I am Scottish and St Andrew is the Patron Saint of Scotland.... Then I thought about it.... my surname is Gallacher which is Irish, my family are from Donegal in Southern Ireland so maybe i should use that as my excuse!

I decided to make some bunting and a wee card to go with it. I used and along with my Nesties, some ribbon and pretty Yellow thickers.

I hope you liked my project :) now please pop along to Roxie and see her gorgeous makes!!

Its a Love thing - Biblical Impressions Blog Hop!!

Welcome to my first ever Blog Hop! Part of my design Team work for Biblical Impressions.... I would appreciate it if you popped on over to the company blog and bookmark it... there is so much wonderful work to see and all the girls have such amazing talents. Amazing to see the range of styles as well :)

Over at Biblical Impressions I picked up this lovely stamp based on Matthew 6, 26-27

I made 3 little Bible markers as a reminder that He loves us and provides for our needs, maybe not what we think we need but what He knows we really need.... I kept them plain and sweet as they will tuck inside our Bibles and the text is more important than the decor. If you want to win one of these little bible markers then please leave me a comment. I will pop it in the post.

I used memento Black ink, Nesties Dies and voile ribbon, the purple is Bazzil Bling cardstock and the blue is Sapphire Bazzil.

Stamp I used it found here  its very well made and stamps beautifully...

Next on the Blog hop is Jessica S!! Please skip on over to her blog and see her gorgeous card!

Biblical Impressions - Grace and Peace

Its been a little while since my last post due to some rather upsetting things happening at home. I apologise for this. Things are starting to pick themselves back up again and get back onto an even keel thankfully.

Oh and I am entering this into a Crafty Challenge :) on Emmas Cards UK - its my first ever proper blog challenge item... I have never really taken time to enter so today is my first! xx

When I picked up this rather huge stamp which was a bargain at only $6 ... here is the direct link to it

I sat and read it and smiled... I forgot to take everything to Him... He offers Grace and Peace as a promise and I decided that I would make up a wall hanging to remind me..

I used  Pretty Paper, white stamping card-stock and some rather delicious Dies.

The Stamp works a treat. I sometimes have problems with large stamps that only stamp in places or over stamp in other sections.. this one works a dream!!! it is soooo deeply etched that I stamped once and that was the image I got.... in perfection and without a single smudge, miss stamp or smear.

Some things in life really make me smile!! and working stamps are the best things EVER!!!

I stamped the image using Memento Ink in tuxedo black onto white cardstock. used Stormy Sky mixed with Peeled paint Distress ink pad  to colour the edge and mounted it onto the back layer... the result is this.... I LOVE IT

I added some small flowers to the edges too in white. I was going to make it as my Bible marker but worried that I would forget it was there and would be tucked away until I picked up that particular page I had marked.

Here is a close up at a jaunty angle ;) I love a jaunty angle lol...
