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!

  1. I just love all the texture and colour you’ve created for the background and of course the cacti. So many lovely details. Thanks for playing along with our just Add Ink choose two challenge.


Thank you for all your comments! They are the cherry on top of my sundae!
