Hello All!!  It seems like a while since I have posted.  The girls and I had a fabulous week with my parents celebrating my Dad's retirement and seeing all the family.  While we missed my husband, Scott, we really did have a great time.  It was hard to come back home to Virginia but we had Scott on the other end so it was worth the trip!!!  I thank God that He kept me alert and less tired then most times when driving.  I really was quite worried driving 10 hours straight...but we did it...with God's help of course.

Today I would like to share a card that I made before leaving to go to New York.  This is one of my favorite stamp sets from Our Daily Bread Designs called Thank God.  I am so thankful to know that in all the experiences of life that I have God to count on all the happy moments, difficult moments, quiet moments, painful moments, and every moment!!  Having Him to count on makes everything more bearable!!

 This card uses Our Daily Bread Designs Thank God, some My Mind's Eye Lost and Found paper, stitching, pearl and ribbon trim (that I have hoarded), recycled and reformed flowers, Martha Stewart Butterfly punch, lace from Joann Fabrics, kraft/crumb cake and cream cardstock, Tim Holtz Vintage ink, and the Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles.  

challenges I am entering my creation in:
  Divas by Design  Diecut Little Red Wagon - #138 kraft WordArt Wednesdays - use an encouraging uplifting sentiment Bearly Mine -#40 Flowers Papertake Weekly - Bingo* (blooms, free ribbon) The Cutie Pie Challenge  Real or Faux Stitching 2 Sisters - #96 Stripes and/or plaid Hotshot Crafts - Week 1, Distress Ink
Thanks for stopping by!!   Have a great day!!  Your visits and comments are greatly appreciated.
