About Me

My photo
Hi! Thanks for taking time to look at my site. My name is Kristen and I am one of Jehovah's Witnesses. I am dedicated to sharing the Bible's message of hope and peace. I am married and have two great kids, Gabriel-10 and Abby Lynne-3. I don't have a lot of spare time, but when I do I like to try my hand at being creative. It is a form of relaxation and therapy for me. I enjoy scrapbooking, sewing and cardmaking, although I don't sew very much anymore. Here I'd like to share some of my accomplishments when I have a chance. I am open to comments, ideas and creative help. :)Thanks for spending some time with me.

Hello....It's me again :)

Hi! I'm back! I'm gonna try this again, cause I had this typed out and was working on pictures when I accidentally closed my internet explorer page and lost the whole thing! So, I have come to terms with the fact that just about all of the posting I can expect out of myself is one time a month and anything extra is, well-extra. I am finding it a lot harder to find the time to work on this than I anticipated and I appologise to you all for not providing more for you. Anyway, I have a lot today! I have two cards of my own and three of my wonderful mom's to share with you! Hope you enjoy!

This is a Mo Manning image that is called "It's Hot". I made this card for a coworker's husband who had surgery on his neck for herniated disc. The papers are assorted, the sentiment my own as well as the silver accents.

My mom made this beautiful flowery card. She used rubber stamps, the postage stamps are by Raindrop Echo found on WhimsyStamps.com. I can't remember where she got the daisy, but I know it is a build-a-flower type set. If anyone wants to know how to get it please leave me a comment and I will be happy to find out for you.

I actually kind of love this one! I made this for my brother in law who retired from a job that he worked most of his life. He likes to fish so I thought he might enjoy this one. The sentiments are Raindrop Echo from WhimsyStamps.com and the papers are assorted. I drew the fishing pole myself.

Mom made this little cutie! She used a software that is loaded with silhouettes that she borrowed from a friend. I can find out the name of the software if anyone wants to check it out.
Last but not least:

This is another one of mom's cards. The image is a Mo Manning called "Buds" and it comes in boy and girl versions, and with hair variataions as well. I like this, too cute! Lots of colors and the little girl reminds me of my daughter! :)
I hope you enjoyed these cards! We sure had fun making them! Hehe! Take care everyone. Until next blog update........


  1. Wow Kristen!! You did an AMAZING job coloring that Mo image!! Really fantastic! And I love your Mom's projects as well! So great to see your stuff!

  2. Great cards Kristen! You and your Mom's. It is nice you guys get to craft together sometimes. Your coloring is fantastic! Love all the details too! It is hard for me to post too. It takes up a lot of time that could be spent on crafting or other important things!

  3. Hi Kristen!
    So many pretty, pretty cards!
    Perhaps you can try to split your post up next time - then you´ll have many posts within a month!
    It´s also easier to comment on one or two projects than so many :-)
    But I´d like to confirm, that all of your and your Mom´s cards are really very well done - that reminds me of a challenge: you could join in at http://simplylessismoore.blogspot.com/ with your lovely flower card!

  4. Thanks Uli! I have gotten a used laptop now. Maybe that will give me more opportunities to post more often, since I won't have to fight for the computer :p hahaha!

  5. Hello Kristen,
    I love your cards and your Moms. I am a big fan of Mo's images,I feel like her images are not partial just like Jehovah. So glad to meet another sister. Agape Love

  6. Hi, Kristen, I just noticed your site over at Linda's, and so I stopped over and see that you are also one of Jehovah's Witnesses. I'm in the same congregation as Stacey. And Dorcas is in the next small town over. Love yours and your mom's work. You're both very talented. I know what you mean about time. Working on Aux. Pioneering this month with husband, as we are now both disable, it's not always easy. But I know Jehovah appreciates it.

    I have some candy to give away to new followers and current followers, if you'd like to sign in. (Right now it looks like it'll take a while.) Ha! Hugs, dj1953

    (Better know as Debbie to Stacey & Dorcas; and Debra to blogland.)
