We Remember ~

Today, America and the World remembers. Poignant in the memory of that morning 13 years ago, let us continue to lift up this Nation, the families who lost loved ones and the many heroes who still remember that day as if it were yesterday. 

Our flag flies at half-mast today in a Prayerful reminder.
God Bless America.

SNSS Kindness ~

 photo SNSSKindnessSept3.jpg 
Good morning Sweet'nSassy fans! My card uses Kindness set with matching dies. I loved the Stamp Etching tutorial featured on Splitcoaststampers and have wanted to give this a shot with some of these lovely flowers. What do you think? Why not give it a try? 

I "etched" the blooms using fine line marker after I die cut them. Next I snipped them further into the centres and shaped them using my flower molding mat and stylus tools. I layered some and left some as is. Each centre is filled by adhering sequins that I got from my CTMH friend and consultant Krista. The leaves are a sneak peek from the upcoming Sept. release. 

Materials used:
Stamps: Kindness
Paper: SU, Little Yellow Bicycle
Inks: Versafine black, SU fine tip marker
Accessories: Kindness Flower/Clover dies, Leaf silhouette dies, CTMH sequins, molding mat and tool kit.

Yes - Jesus Loves Me

Aunt Nancy - mother of my heart. She never spoke a word of English as I grew up in her home yet in her final years, learned to sing Jesus Loves Me in word perfect English. This song would become her hope and joy as she released it to whomever would pause and listen. "Unless you become like little children" are the words of Jesus in Matthew 18 and in the isolation of memory loss and Alzheimer's, my beautiful aunt found solace in a simple song of declaration. Yes, Jesus Loves Me.

I miss you dear mother of my heart.
