Hello Friends!! I have  a card to share today using this month's ODBD release of two fabulous dies: Quatrefoil Pattern,and Quatrefoil Design I just love the sheer elegance of them and the so many versatile designs you can use to create with them!!!  For today's card I cut them out of Vanilla cardstock and used an R00 copic to highlight some of the design in the die.

I decided to use some nice soft and happy PINK as my background!  It makes me feel happy and like spring or summer!!  I then added a sentiment from Our Daily Bread Designs Hyacinth which I stamped on Ribbon Banners from Spellbinders.  The foliage is created with a Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish, Martha Stewarts leaves, and Martha Stewarts Twig out of Old Olive and Bridal Bouquet.

I just love the delicate and elegant feel these dies create!!  
Yesterday marked our one year Anniversary of moving here to Virginia!! While I can't say life has been easy, we can see the blessings God has bestowed upon us and the lessons we have learned and continue to learn.  I thank God for leading us here and for the many wonderful friends we have met.  I would like to share a verse that has meant a lot to Scott and I over the last few months...a reminder that we are not alone.

So do not fear, for I am with you;
    do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Isaiah 41:10

Food for Thought: A life without God no matter how happy you feel you are is less fulfilling then a life with God no matter how many difficulties you face.  

Have a blessed weekend!! Thanks for stopping by!!


I am entering this in the Word Art Wednesday Challenge.

At this time it seems like Movable Type is the top blogging platform out there right now.
(from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a
40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off
topic but I had to share it with someone!

Look at my weblog
