Funky Cactus

 Well it's been a long time! 

I took quite a hiatus, plus we moved, and did a full renovation of our (new to us!) 45 year old house! 

That was fun and interesting, and stressful at times as well! There is nothing quite like living in a house that's being renovated!  But the best part was waking up one night and having finally made a decision on taking out a wall I just went at it with a sledge hammer! 

I am so blessed to have a HUGE crafting space now, and God has given me time each morning to spend with him, and then I get to work on my crafts.  The ideas are definitely flowing!  

Saturdays seem to be my biggest crafting day, I get my coffee, I do my devotions, and then I dive in!  I have had a renewed love of my Big Shot die cutting machine!  Like seriously, I almost got rid of it in the move!  But with Tim Holtz's new chapter 3 release I have been going gangbusters on this thing!  

Then I found the Funky Insects, and the Funky Cactus! WHAT! I am so in love with both of these sets of dies!  Yesterday I had this idea to use an old Ikea frame I had in the craft room, I made background papers using stencils and texture paste and then distress sprays and distress crayons, and then I made the green paper for the cactus, and cut them out and voila!  

The cool thing is the frame is two sided, it opens like a claw at the bottom.  

Hope you are loving it as much as I am!

From this morning bible reading: 
John 9:5 While I am in the world, I am the light of the world. 

Have a blessed Sunday and rest of the week!
