Do you need to thank someone today? Can you be a better friend to someone today by reaching out or responding to them in some way?
Thanks for stopping by my blog,

They are a great way to use up scraps of ribbon and random embellies. I haven't been purchasing any papercrafting supplies for the past month. My goal is to purchase nothing but adhesive for the rest of the summer and concentrate on being content with what I have and using up my stash.
I found these mini notepads on an endcap at Big Lots in a section intended to display wedding favors and supplies. They are sold in packs of 8 for $2.50. They come in this plain white embossed design and in an umembossed black and white floral. I purchased them in May, so I'm not sure they are still available.

I've been MIA for a while now. I've been having some health issues and recently had surgery. I'm recovering now, and I'm looking forward to things to come.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Butterflies always remind me of my mother because she has an infinity for them. I live a few hours from my mom, and the older I get the more I miss her and wish that we live closer. However, I'm mindful of the fact that I'm blessed that my mother is still living and I can call and talk to her whenever I want. It would be cool though if I could just "pop in" for dinner, you know? There's nobody like my mom. :)
I hope you are enjoying the sunshine!

I've been keeping a prayer journal for several years now. Writing out my prayers, in the format of letters to The Lord, has helped me in numerous ways. One, I am more focused in my prayer time. Secondly, I can leaf back through the pages and clearly see God's Hands in every aspect of my life. Most importantly, however, is the knowledge that I need to pick up that journal and I need to pray even when my petitions seem small, because the PRAISES are always large!
This card is made with scraps that I've had for years - literally. The stamp set is from SU. It's simple, but pretty.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving comments. God Bless You!

Well, we prayed. And prayed. And prayed. I think Baby Gabriel is on every prayer list and prayer chain in our region. God heard many knocks on His door in petition for this tiny new little life.
Praise God .... Baby Gabriel is doing so much better. He's off almost all of the machines and lines. He is breathing on his own, hasn't had any more seizures, and is very responsive. A recent MRI was totally normal. Again, Praise God!
So, this card is for Baby Gabriel's family. I used SU Cardstock, Ink,and Stamp, DCWV patterned paper, American Crafts Ribbon, SU Photo Corner Punch and Scalloped Square Punch, EK Success Corner Punch, Making Memories Buttons, and one of my favorite Cuttlebug Embossing Folders.

Today is my neice Abi's birthday. She's growing up so fast. We have a lot in common, that crazy girl and I! :) We both love the 80's decade, watching Strawberry Shortcake movies, playing with dolls, and giggling until our cheeks hurt. So, we are celebrating her birthday @ my SIL's house with hamburgers, chips, and potato salad. Picnic in February, anyone? hee hee
For this card, I used DCWV Glitter Stack paper, SU Cardstock, American Crafts Rub On sentiment, Fiskars Threading Water Punch, SU Ticket Punch, Bling from Crafts2000, and Gray Satin/Organza Ribbon from the Offray Ribbon Outlet. Oh, how I love thee, ribbon outlet. :)

A little about the card itself .... I used a dollar stamp from Micheal's, stickles, Offray ribbon, el cheapo cardstock (black), whisper white cardstock (SU), Fruit Punch Stickles, DCWV patterned paper, and Staz On black ink. I also sponged it a tiny bit with Pretty in Pink SU ink. This card was also a nod to the challenge @ Hand Stamped Sentiments - I haven't completed a challenge card in MONTHS.
At first glance, you might be thinking this card is too girly to give to man, but I don't think so at all. Brian's color blind, seeing only shades of gray, so he's drawn to the shapes and textures of things. He was thrilled with the card, especially with what I wrote on the inside. Shhhh.. that's a secret! :)
Happy Valentines Day, everyone! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'd love to read your comments.
