I know this has been going around in blogland over the last few weeks but I couldn't help but share. I hope it touches your heart like it did mine.

Jer. 29:11....

Jeremiah 29:11 has long been a favorite scripture of mine so when I saw Verve had it available as part of their Plain Jane Collection, I had to get it. I've had it for quite some time now and finally pulled it out to create this card.

This is the first time I've used Stampin' Up!'s Daffodil Delight and have to say that it's the perfect spring shade so I suspect you'll see it quite a bit over the next few months.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by today....have a good day!

PS - Thank you to all of you who commented on yesterday's post. Your time is valuable and I'm honored you used a little of it here!

Our God is Greater....

I've been struggling to figure out how to put into words what's happening in our lives as I write this. Just a week ago I was consumed with thoughts of a floundering Stampin' Up! business, a broken relationship with a relative and the tragic images coming out of Japan. Then, all of the sudden things were put into perspective as we got word that my best friend has stage 3 Breast Cancer. Cancer? Really? I spent the rest of the week kind of walking around in a daze. Did I dream this? Is there a chance that the diagnosis was wrong? How do I face the possibility that I might lose her?

While I don't claim to know all of the answers, I do know this for sure. Tammy is a believer and will spend eternity at the feet of Jesus no matter when that time comes. If you are of the praying persuasion, I would be grateful for any prayers that you might offer up on her behalf. And if it seems as if I'm hit or miss around here, it's because I've committed myself to being there for her every step of the way.

Go and hug your loved ones.....tell them how much they mean to you and rest in the arms of a loving God that knows everything.

I'll leave you with this.....

Top O' The Morning.....

I've had a really hard time finding cute things for St. Patrick's Day this year so I decided to make something!

It was a little time consuming but so worth it because I love how it turned out! All of the supplies are from Stampin' Up! and can be adapted for any occasion. Perhaps something for Easter is in order? :o)

Have a fantastic weekend!

When in doubt......CASE!

Good morning!

As I continue to search for motivation/mojo I'm working my way through some of my favorite samples from some incredibly talented people. Today's card is a CASE of the famous Teneale Williams. I can't remember her blog name but I'm sure a short Google search would turn her up. She is awesome!

I love the way pink and black look together and chose it for my card. The stamp set is available for free through the end of the month when you place a $50 order with Stampin' Up!. Pink, black and free? Please! I SO there!

Thank you for stopping by....have a fantastic weekend!

Scrapbooking and an Award.....

Are you sitting down? Can you believe I actually created something?! While my mojo still seems to be avoiding me, I had a project that I had promised to complete so I just jumped right on in and hoped for the best!

Shana, my downline with Stampin' Up! had her first scrapbooking class last night and I made a sample using different papers and stamps in the same layout she used for their project. Here is her layout....

And here are my pages using the same design but in different colors....

It just goes to show that you can get a completely different look while using the same basic design. And it was really good for me to actually complete something! :o)

I'm going to do a little more CASE (Copy and Share Everything) work this week to see if I can jump-start myself and will post anything I get done. Wish me luck!

Thank you for the visit!

PS - Look what I was awarded by my sweet stamping sister at Seeing Ink Spots! Thank you!
