Happy Mother's Day

Super late post but here I go again--creativity has hit me as I do a  fundraiser for my Big Island trip.   Can't wait to see the kids and adults again at Camp Lokahi.  I sold 2 cards and gave 2 away to some of the kids at "TFC--Teens for Christ" at my family's church.  Another Sweet and Simple cards.

Thank You....

It feels so nice to be partially creative again!  These were "Thank You" cards for a dear friend who graduated from NHCC with a BA in Theology.  Each card was individually made and each slightly different than the next.  Simple and Sweet.  <3

Kirstie's Starbucks card

Kirstie is a special Shift Supervisor at the Sbux that I frequent.  She mentioned that she will be leaving "the office" and I was immediately saddened by the news.  It's been really nice to see her smiling face there so i made a special Starbucks Card, made out of the napkins and the pastry bag. ;p  

I got to pick up these vintage (since A Muse is no longer doing wooden stamps) stamps when I was at Paper Tales in San Diego last month.  


I'll miss you, my Sbux friend...maybe I'll see you in a Seattle Sbux soon!  Take care, friend, Know that God has an amazing plan for you and your family!  Sit back and Enjoy the ride!

My dear friend, Marni was leaving for Hillsong International in Australia and she had a list of people who gave her gifts.  These were my gift to her: Thank You cards.

Paper: Ben Franklin cards and envelopes in white; Stamps:  flower from Clever Girls and Thank You from Essential Sentiments; Inks: Papaya, Fern, Currant, Bubblegum, Cranberry, Slate, and Shell. 

  She made one too. 
This is her card:

I'm so glad I can call her my friend and I get to see the journey that God is walking her through at Hillsong!  I want to save my money so I can go to visit there one day...Maybe when they have conference.  

I love you, my dear friend!!!

Happy October!!!
If you are following this month's blog hop, you should have came from 

This month the theme is scrapbook pages.  I don't do much scrapbooking but when I do, I do enjoy it.
This time I get to do a scrapbook page for a ministry for Hope Chapel West O'ahu.
The ministry is called:
Bake A Blessing
They are a team of bakers and drivers who reach out to children/youth with a birthday cake made especially for them when they, due to circumstances, would not have one.

The pictures above are from another Do Something ministry from Hope Chapel called
Kids Rock
They are a team of volunteers who reach out to the children of the Pupu'ole community in
Waipahu.  They build relationships within this lower class community and lead the childred into a relationship with Jesus and help them grow in their faith. 

The leadership team are so commpassionate for these kids it is reflected on the smiles on the children's faces.  Every other Saturday Kids Rock meets up at the community's park and they share the love of God.  They have been a ministry in this area for more than a year.

A.T.C.s {Artist Trading Cards}

Clever Girls

Holy Night
It's been forever since I've posted but here are two recent ATCs that I got to create.  I love the clever girls stamp sets.  These stamps are so versitile and I love the fact that I can play around with so many of A Muse Studio's inks!  The chalky inks cause the circles to look 3 dimensional and I love how it seems to pop off the page! 

The second ATC, is Holy Night.  It was very simple, only two layers with a twinkle star but it speaks volumes.  I attend a bible college, New Hope Christian College on Oahu, Hawaii, and this represents my Heart and Art of worship class discussions. 
In this day and age, many wise men and women still seek after Him.  Not only on major holidays like Christmas and Easter but everyday. 
God shines the light so brightly that we see that light and search out for it. 
The difference between doing good in life and becoming a Christian, is that one has God in their life! 
A person can be a good person and do all the "right" things, but truely, is that enough?
Jesus is the answer, not only on Christmas, but those days that truely counts: the day you loose a friend {in death or the relationship}; the moment your heart breaks; or even on those good days: the day your first {or second, or third, even} is born; the day you find "the one". 
Knowing that God is in your life not only to guide you but to LOVE you...with all that you are,
THAT is the difference between a good person and a follower of Christ. 

The bible is not a book of "Do's and Don'ts" but a book of LOVE and how in these stories God redeems the characters into a love relationship. 

It's in this LOVE that a person finds peace and joy.  Happiness is only temporary. 
Would you rather go by a temporary feeling or one that is deep and meaningful?

Enjoy and Happy Stamping!!!
