Sweet 'n Sassy Cards


Yellow has never been one of my favorite colors, but as soon as I seen this paper pad at Hobby Lobby last week I had to have it.  It's by Authentique.   "Everyday Miracles" is a wonderful encouragment stamp set.  And you know I love those butterflies!


This card was featured as a top 3 at Sentimental Sundays!!


Have you seen the August new releases over at Sweet n' Sassy??  I'm in LOVE with the Autumn Collage!!


So I grabbed a couple of my Sweet n' Sassy stamp sets and these are the results!  These are pretty clean and simple.  The coloring took the most time.

I love the "Praising the Lord" set because of the wonderful sentiments in it.  This week I am praising the Lord for a new job opportunity and for my sweet husband who I love so much!  How is God blessing you in your life??

You can view all of my Sweet n' Sassy projects HERE.
