Happy Friday All!!  Wow!!  It sure has been chilly here in Virginia.  I hope everyone has been keeping warm.  I have stayed indoors mostly other than going into the car to volunteer in the classroom at the Christian School.  The days have made me feel lazy...We have been very busy, however, with painting yet again in the house as well as looking for jobs for Scott.  We continue to pray for jobs for Scott as we stila have not located work.  Scott jokes that he could work for the weather channel...he is very able to stand in the rain or pelting snow if they need. LOL!  We know God will provide work in time...He is just teaching patience.  Hopefully we don't have to endure patience for too much longer....LOL! I am popping in with a card I made for a challenge over at Splitcoast 
(TLC413) which was..."All about the dies" I had fun creating a background with the Spellbinders Butterfly Magic and the A2 Matting Basics .
The stamps used include the Fellowship Sentiments Little Girls (sentiment), and the Antique Label Designs from Our Daily Bread Designs. The border on the very bottom and the one sentiment is cut out with the coordinating Antique Label and Border die 

The fancy border is cut out with a Martha Stewart punch.

The bow is made with Becca's Peg Bow Maker.

I hope this creation, has somehow inspired you.

Thanks for stopping by!!  Have a great day!!

hugs and blessings,

Beautiful card, Chris! Someone will be feeling very special, indeed, when they find this in the mail! Hugs...

Chris - this is a beautiful card - I love it! We recently have been thru the job loss situation with our daughter. As a result, she moved to NC with our grandson and is living with us. She has found a job here and will find her own house when she's able to get back on her feet financially. Moving closer to her family is the silver lining in this cloud - so, keep in mind God has a reason for putting you thru this!
