I finally had time to stamp!

I managed to squeeze in some time for some card making yesterday, so thought I would share with you...

This first item is an antique book that I purchased at a garage sale last year. I have decided to fill it with photo's of my husband and I and I am doing it in all black and white photos, and using only cream, black, white, red and gray papers and embellishments. I like it so far. Just need more pictures to add to it.

This next card was made with a stamp from the Unity Stamp comp. and I have to say, I love this stamp. I wish they would make some more scripture stamps like this one! This stamp was just the thing I needed though, as we are really praying for God to move a mountain for us. If you remember, just a few short months ago, we lost my mother-in-law to cancer. And we just received the news a few nights ago that my father in law now has cancer. So this one is for him!

and then I was on a flower kick and managed to get these cards done in a short amount of time:

And this last card has a magnet in the pocket that can be pulled out:

And yes, I did all of those cards yesterday! I also made 5 additional cards that I have not posted. So I was very productive yesterday.
Well, it was so nice of you to stop by to visit...hope you enjoy your day!

Oh, Sandy! How wonderful to see you here again, and catch a glimpse of your creativity. These are all beautiful.

I'm so very sorry to hear the news of your FIL. Your family has been hit so hard; I know it is more than difficult, and I will be praying steadfastly for you.

Blessings, sweet sister!

You have been one BUSY cardmaker:o) I love all of these beautiful creations, but the book is my absolute favorite. I may have to use that idea too...if you don't mind.

I will continue praying for your FIL. I cannot imagine how difficult this is for you and your family, especially your husband.
