Can't show just yet

So this is a sneak peak at an Altered Heart 
I am working on for a swap.
We decided to make it pink in honor of
 breast cancer awareness.
I want her to have an element of surprise.
So is this the front or is it the back?
The stamp set is "Brighter Tomorrow" now retired from SU!
So Caroline, if you happen to be looking... 
I hope you like what you see so far.

Card Holder

I had purchased several of these paper mache cardholders from Stampington some years ago for a class. Last time I checked they no longer sell them. I had two left over and decided it was time to to decorate them. So I kept one and gave the other one to Deb. What a week she had. Hopefully this project cheered her up a bit.
So we painted and decorated our cardholders to our liking. I had some rusty elements that I had purchased and these rusty hearts Deb had given me in a R.A.K. I used specialty papers from Tim Coffey's Tuscan Sunflowers by K&Co. That beautiful lollipop flower that matched perfectly was made by Deb and she gifted it to me. I was in the mood to use up what I have...what am I holding on to it for...So I did.

Some Simple Cards

The last two Artistic Fridays that Deb of It's All Good and I had we made some cute cards. The first four you see here are images that Deb stamped and colored with our new Copic markers. These were less than perfect to she gave them to me. Yippee for me.... half the work is done. So I couldn't let them go to waste. Just had to pick out some pretty papers and embellishments. I tried to keep them on the simple side so they can actually be put in an envelope and use. I doubt anyone will know what's not right about them. The last three I stamped and colored. It was great to get out our embossing folders, punches and Sizzix and Spellbinder dies and actually use them. We just love these images from the Greeting Farms, Lili of the Valley and Pure Innocence.

Matthew 6:14-15 - “For if YOU forgive men their trespasses, YOUR heavenly Father will also forgive YOU; whereas if YOU do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will YOUR Father forgive YOUR trespasses.

Euodia and Syntyche, two Christian sisters in ancient Philippi, apparently had some difficulty in resolving a problem that arose between them. (Phil. 4:2, 3) A heated dispute between Paul and Barnabas became public knowledge and resulted in their going separate ways for a while. (Acts 15:37-39) These accounts show that true worshippers are not immune to disagreements. Our heavenly father provides us with help to resolve conflicts and restore friendships. But he requires something of us.
The key is humility. (Read James 4:10.) That key allows those at odds with each other to begin applying Bible principles.
The Bible contains excellent counsel on resolving conflicts. (Matt. 5:23, 24; 18:15-17; Eph. 4:26, 27) Unless we humbly apply that counsel, however, making peace will be difficult. Waiting for the other person to show humility is not the solution when we too are holding the key in our hand.
If our initial attempts to make peace seem unfruitful for some reason, we should not give up hope. The other person may need time to sort out his feelings.
So I humbly ask for your forgiveness.
