Wedding Cake card

Thought I'd share a photo of a wedding cake card that I make regularly for one of my dear aunts, who seems to go to LOTS of weddings! :)

The layers are made a an ivory ribbed shimmer cardstock, lined with string pearls. The cake is settled on a gold embossed swirly cake stand, and the top overflows with an abundance of embossed ivory shimmer flowers, with gold bead centers. The middle layer is uniquely crafted to announce the names of the new couple!

If you'd like to order this 5"x6.5" custom Wedding Cake card for or if you have any questions, feel free to email me at

{ $5.50 - Price includes customization of names, inside sentiment of your choice and shipping in the US.}

Patter Cross Scripture Challenge: My notebook

Ok... I said that I would post photos when I finished the cover of the spiral scrapbook that will be holding my Patter Cross Scripture Challenge pages, so here it is.

I started with this pale yellow spiral bound scrapbook that was given to me YEARS ago. It has sat all this time, sadly unused, longing for a PURPOSE in life! I am always hesitant to start a spiral book, because you are "BOUND" (pun intended :) to the order once you set it in. For this project, it is PERFECT, since Patter sends out the word-for-study every other week, it calls to be put in order by default! YEAH! :) Sprial-bound put to good use!

I love the base color of this notebook, and it has this really cute yellow daisy in the center. I wanted to decorate it really colorful to match Patter's blinkie for the challenge, so I used some MME Confetti cardstock, which comes in these wonderful fun colors! I used a few scrap pieces from class leftovers, so I covered the seams with a matching turquoise grosgrain ribbon. I attached the paper and ribbons using my new Xyron :) with permanent adhesive, so I don't think it's gonna come off anytime in THIS century! (It's great for a cover!)

-Used a few pink buttons here and there, a green BoBunny flower with a button center,and a couple of various gems and such. I also attached a "file label" inside the daisy window, with my "signature". :)
Then I HAD to print Patter's pretty blinkie to add to the bottom right of the cover, finishing it off just perfectly!

It came together so well! And I love how the notebook stands so nicely, to display my scripture layouts! - a nice, easy (inexpensive) display.

:) Can't wait to do my next page!

No foolin'... it IS APRIL!

Happy April, everyone!!

The air is full of spring breezes today, and the shining promise of Christ's redemption and love is all around!



"This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are JUSTIFIED FREELY by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus."
Romans 5:22-24

"Therefore, is anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone; the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ ... not counting men's sins against them."
2 Corinthians 5:17-19

May your month be enriched with God's mercy and grace as you find Him, when you seek Him with all of your heart!

Blessings to you!
