Artful Legacy Card of the week

I made this Card for my DT for Artful Legacy.
I hope you enjoy and will leave your comment for a chance to win. I'll pick a winner Sunday 3/28.
You can leave you comments here on the blog.

Directions on making this card: I used He has Risen and Half Daisy both from Artful Legacy.
I stamped the Half Daisy using Chalk Box ink in chestnut brown.Coloring them with copic E47 and CTMH orange Z2338 and cut out.
I cut freehand the stem from brown paper.
He has Risen is stamped with StazOn ink in Pumpkin.
The paper for the background mat is from K & Company.
I used 3-d pop dots on two of the flowers and the white mat.
I picked the same He has Risen stamp that I used last week because I really want to show how you can use the same stamp in many ways and make totally different looking cards.
Always look for stamps you can use over and over again.

Happy Stamping!!

Operation Write Home Blog Hop

Welcome to my stop on the bloghop!

If you've arrived here from

Welcome & THANK YOU for your support of OWH -

if you're stumbling onto the hop right now, you might want to start at
to see all the great blogs!

This is my reason for my great passion for OWH…
This is my middle son and he is in the USAF. Right now he is deployed to the Middle East. He has been gone too long and will be gone too long!! Although he is very homesick right now he loves his job. When he was leaving for this deployment his wonderful soon to be bride wrote something he said on their blog. “People have started to give him little going away presents. He shrugged his shoulders and said to me over the weekend, “I don’t know why people want to give me gifts. I’m just doing my job!” I can tell you he meant that whole heartedly! He is a true soldier!”
He is our hero in this family! If you see this son, we love you and miss you & are so very proud of you and what you are doing.

Well here is my card for the blog hop. It is really warm in my part of the wonderful south so it was very easy to get into making a spring card. I hope you like it.

I will give the card away from comments left here on this post. I will have a drawing on

Monday 3/ 22. I always use

Please come back to visit Pass It On often I give away cards every week.

You next stop on the blog hop is
Brenda Rose,

Hop on over and see her beautiful work.
But not before you leave your comment for a chance to win this card.
I am also committing to making one card for each comment left here.

Good Luck! Kathy

An Easter Card for Artful Legacy

I took a 6x12 Kraft cardstock by Paper Reflections folded in half to make a 6X6 cardbase.
I used DCWV “The Doodlin’ Around” line of cardstock. I cut he green base to 2 ½ x 4 ¼ .
The yellow base 3 ½ x 5 and the lined side strip in 6 x 1 ¾.
I used this punch. It is a Scalloped Scallop Medium Edger Punch By EK Success
I cut out the cross with my Silhouette by Quickutz.
And the most important part is I used “He has Risen” on the outside and the “Happy Easter” stamp on the inside of the card from Artful Legacy.

Leave a comment and I will give this card away on Sunday 3/21.

Have a good day.

So much news to share!!

I am not going to offer an apology for being away from the blog for so long because I have been so very busy!!

First off let me start by telling you I have been selected to be a member of the design team of Artful Legacy. I am so excited. Artful Legacy had a store in Myrtle Beach, SC and I loved visiting it any time I was luckily enough to be at the coast. But Christine and Buck, the owners, moved but still sell their wonderful stamps online. You will be seeing and hearing more about that very soon. This is the blog for the design team. I am on the team with some very talented ladies and love looking at all the great ideas they have.

Be sure to check out both sites.

So let me give you a very short list of where my time has gone…

My two younger sons painted the inside of my house and just finished this weekend. I am so excited. They did an incredible job. So I am now trying to get my house back in order. You know how long that takes. They painted every room in the house except two so that is a lot of stuff I need to sort through and put back.

We had company for while and that was so much fun and we were very sad to see her go. I am so proud to say she is one of my future daughter-in-laws! I am getting TWO new daughter-in-laws this year so there is a lot of wedding talk and planning going on around here. I am so excited. I could not have done a better job if I had handpicked both of these ladies myself. Boys you did a super job.

I have made three trips to the lower part of the state for this…

Yes, I know you have already seen pictures and you will be seeing more.

I have my 3rd granddaughter. As her Grammy I made the sacrifice of spending time with her and her family to help out. This was the best part of “helping out”

Ok so you know a little of why I have not been blogging and I want to ask do you blame me??

Thank you for all the email asking if I was ok and still doing Pass It On.
I will have some cards for you tomorrow.
