Hello, Friends!! It has been a while since I posted a card so I thought today I would share one of my latest creations.  It was made to send to a friend to let them know I was thinking and praying for them using the March Anniversary Release.  I just love the decorative dies that are so perfect for layering!!

For my card, I used the Lavish Layers dies, Filigree Frame Dies, Double Stitched Rectangles and Rectangle Dies.  The sentiment is from the Faith Card Sentiments.


The combo of papers is from the Old Glory Paper Collection.  The middle border is created with the Leafy Edged Borders dies.

Is there someone who needs encouragement?  Sending a kind word to someone regardless of whether they are going through a difficult time or just to let them know you care for no occasion what so ever can build someone up or add a smile to their day.

Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.  Ephesians 4:29

Thanks for your visits and kind words!! May you have a blessed day!!


Blessings,

Hello, Friends!!  I am hoping today finds you all well and that you all are receiving some sunshine wherever you may be located!! Spring, here in Virginia, has been more like a yo-yo from cold to warm with a record number of mornings with freezing temperatures,  The flowers were out, the leaves were appearing on the trees, my daylilies were popping out of the ground and growing nicely and now I have a bunch of brown foliage, wilted or dead flowers, and a lot of dead leaves on the trees.  I so love this time of year and am looking forward to when Spring has Sprung to stay.

Today I would like to share I created for this week's Shining the Light challenge using the recipe beginning with each letter of the Acronym- O D B D.

Hello Friends!!  This week the weather has been so beautiful!! It has been in the 60's and sunny so far!! The daffodils and flowering trees are blooming, the grass is all green (in fact we have mowed 2 times already), and trees are starting to leaf out. I just love this time of year when everything looks so fresh.  It seems so perfect with the celebration of Easter and the New Life its message promises if we believe.

2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.

Today I would like in to share a springy card I created using violets.  I colored them in aqua, one of my fave colors!!
