For the Love of Music AND Some Exciting News!!!

Hi lovely friends ♥  It's been a little while since my last post!  Lots going on here as usual... Last Saturday we enjoyed a day retreat with the girls :)  I love my guys, but there's nothing like spending some quality girl time!!!

This Saturday we are holding a Women of Faith simulcast at church.  It's been quite a few years since I've attended one of these events.  I am soooo excited to see what God might do throughout this day!!!  My sweet hubby is gonna be our Chef - he cooks up a mean bbq chicken :)

Please think about us as we gather together for the entire day... Worship will be with Matthew West ♥.

So... speaking about music... what kind of music do you like?  I'm actually not sure that I have a particular style I prefer, but I do love all kinds of Christian music.  There's nothing like lifting up praises to our LORD ♥.

My post today is two-fold:  Music Maestro is the theme of this week's challenge at The Paper Shelter, and I have very exciting news to share with you about the cutting file I used on today's card.  So let's get started!!!

This is the sweet image I used for my card. She's called Cecilia. I couldn't resist adding Stickles on her eyelids :)  I cut her out using my Silhouette!!!

Isn't this a great MUSIC shaped card?  When I saw it at The Cutting Cafe, I knew it was perfect for this challenge!  It comes with the notes as well :)  I just adore Regina's cutting files.  More about that later...

I'd like to enter the following Challenges:
Stamp and Create - Use at least one die cut
Simon Says - Anything Goes
The Sisterhood - Free for All
Paper Crafting Journey - Use a Sentiment
Bearly-Mine - Anything Goes
Stampin' for the Weekend - Die cuts and/or punches
Die Cuttin' Divas - Anything Goes

The beautiful patterned paper is from Scrap Girls.  I LOVE my SG digi papers and embellishments! There is so much FUN to choose from in the Boutique :)  I'll have a fun project coming up with Silhouette and Scrap Girls soon... Be on the lookout for that cuz there will be some special promotions happening!!!

Please join us for our Music Maestro theme at The Paper Shelter Challenge this week.  Here's what's up for grabs:

Anyone who plays along using a TPS image will be eligible to win a $30 Gift Voucher - yay!!! If you use another image, you can win 3 images of your choice!

And now... my exciting news (which you may have guessed) is that I am now a designer for The Cutting Cafe - yippeee!!!  This card will be on The Cutting Cafe's Blog next week.  I kinda cheated by doing a two-for-one with the timing of my project... but it was just too perfect to wait LOL!

Here's my supply list:
Cupcake Doodle Twine - Doodle Bug
White Gelly Roll Pen - Sakura
Tag Punch - Martha Stewart
Papertrey Ink Sentiment

Lori, Wow - your card is stunning. I love the colors - so beautiful

Melisa Waldorf said...

Lori I LOVE this project. So stinkin' cute! I hope you enjoy your bible study. I listen to Christian music as well. We are blessed here in Houston to have a fabulous radio station locally, but I also listen to Air One and sometimes K-Love as well. You can listen to those online. I have a huge I-tunes library as well. Hard to pick a favorite but if I had to I would say Mark Shultz or Chris Tomlin. Have a blessed week! melisa

Leslie said...

Stickles on the got me there girl!! I LOVE THAT. I love how it's so shimmery and I never would have thought of something that creative and that's just the tip of the iceberg on creativity. The cut file looks amazing with that adorable image! So nicely done. Welcome aboard the Cutting Cafe.
