Turquoise Mocs

Here is another Moccasins card I made last week.  I had so much fun with this one too!  This time I used LuminArte's Twinkling H20's to paint in the turquoise mocs.  (I used *Mediterranean Blue*) and the rest of the mocs are colored in with Copics and Shimmerz Paints.  I tried really going Southwest with this one and used my *wooden planks* designer paper, indian beads, and matching ribbon!  I hope u like it!

Here's a close up of the shimmery Twinkling H20's and an even better shot at the Shimmerz I painted on top of the dark brown soles and leather laces.  I wanted to brighten them up since the moccasins are shimmery too.  I used *Candle Light* Shimmerz over dark brown Copic markers.

I painted over my foam American Crafts thickers alphabet letters that were lime green - I used a turquoise colored paint and then after they dried I applied some 
Distress Stickles over them.  It's so neat how it looks like chunks of antique broken glass.

Here's a close up of the beads on the safety pin, pinned to the side of the ribbon.  I found the safety pins at a huge new dollar store called *Daiso* which originated in Japan.  You can find everything there - most items are only $1.50!  I found these pins in the sewing section and they say *Black* safety pins but they look more like antiqued pins - I thought they were perfect for using on my vintage-y cards!

Thanks for stopping by!

Southwest Moccasins

I fell in love with this stamp when I saw it at *I Brake For Stamps* a couple weeks ago.  Even though I'm not American-Indian there was something about this stamp that made me just have to buy it!  I also usually wait a while to make stuff after I've received an order, but I immediately stamped this out onto cardstock soon after it arrived - I just couldn't wait to get creative with it!  When I was very little I had a pair of moccasins - they didn't quite look like these, but I remember how much I loved them!  Brings back warm memories for me :) !

The Way, The Truth & The Life

I love this image and bible verse from Heart & Soul Rubber Stamp Co., because it sums up everything about Christ.  He truly is the Way, the Truth and the Life!

Lately I've been listening to Adrian Rogers' podcasts on iTunes, and they just finished running his series on how *Jesus is God's Answer to Man's _ _ _ _ _ *, it's been so awesome.  There are seven sermons in the series:

Jesus is God's Answer to Man's Disappointment
Jesus is God's Answer to Man's Doubt
Jesus is God's Answer to Man's Disability
Jesus is God's Answer to Man's Desire
Jesus is God's Answer to Man's Darkness
Jesus is God's Answer to Man's Despair
Jesus is God's Answer to Man's Death

I originally found his podcasts through his ministry website, Love Worth Finding ( and now I've downloaded all of them onto my ipod.  I love to listen as I do my chores and garden work!
