June Inspiration by Veronique

Hello,

Veronique here, today I want to share my inspiration card with you
                                               
                                                 Talk to the paw
When I chose this stamp I fell in love with it...Just because of all his wrinkles
I think this card would do well as a birthday card for men and women.
So you can use it many times.


Here is a little close-up
I couloured the dog with spectrum noir alcohol markers
The little paws are done with a punch and I put some glossy accents on them so they would look like real little paws.


I hope you all feel inspired by the card.

Happy Crafting!

Be TRANSFORMED!

I urge you beloveds, get into the Word of God so that you are not easily deceived and follow every whim of doctrine.  Begin to have an intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit and ask Him to fill you with His fire, so that when you hear something that is contrary to the Word of God or watered down, you may hear His still small voice warning you not to believe or receive what you are hearing.  There are far too many cookie cutter Christians (Christians by title only) and not hearers and doers of the Word.  Too many have been deceived to follow the ways of the world instead of being different and separate from the world. We are to be GODLY examples in word and deed so that others may know that we are TRUE disciples. Do not allow yourselves to fall into what the world is doing (drinking, smoking, getting tattoos, sexual sins, etc.)  We are to walk in holiness and sin no more!!

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, HE is a NEW creature; the OLD things passed away; behold, NEW things have come. Which means, you are no longer to do the same things, talk the way you used to, behave the way you used to but you are to walk in a NEW way, the way of Christ. Christ wouldn't be getting tattoos, drinking or committing sexual sins?? We are examples to those around us and we are to declare what God has done for us and how He has transformed us and brought us out from sin.  That is our testimony!!!

My Own Craft Room

Hello Crafters, Carla here.  Today, I would like to share my inspirational card with you




This has got to be the most special composition for a card, I've done recently. Yes, I know the name of the Cute as a Button image is Love My Copics, but I love my pencils! Getting to color her with Prismacolor Pencils and Prismacolor Bender and a bit of silver from a Gelly Roll pen was fun. Planning her craft room was more fun using the craft table and room grid by Scrappers Delight. The bits and pieces were taken from the Mother's Day 2011 digikit and it was all merged in the Craft Artist 2 program.

Ok, so why is this composition so special. Well, it's because she could be me (she's somewhat younger and has a lot more hair). I feel so fortunate to be a retired art teacher, which has lead me to numerous crafting activities. Retirement could have been a boring depressing time. I'm lucky to have my creative hobbies and a wonderful room dedicated to doing them.

I love the challenge of new images to design for. I belong to several design teams, which has greatly improved my coloring skills. I love exploring techniques and styles as well as enjoy making friends around the globe.

I create cards as well as framed art and canvases. Some of my work is for sale locally. I recently received an honorable mention for a piece I created with an image from Aurora Wings. My work has been published in a few magazines.

I love to inspire others with good quality crafts. I hope you will share your projects at Cute as a Button stamps Facebook Page and Cute as a button stamps Facebook Group.

There is a "For the Boys" challenge you should enter at Cute as a Button Stamps.

I hope my card has inspired you to participate in the challenges.
