Hello again!

WOW - it's been two months since I posted anything here.  Life just got busy.  It's not that I haven't been crafting...well, not as much as I would have liked.  But I just am not sure where I want this blog to go yet.  My heart is that I want it not only to share my love of card making...but also be a source of encouragement in life.  I'm not sure what that looks like yet so be expecting for this to evolve.

As I said I haven't been crafting as much as I would like.  I think there are cobwebs growing in my craft room.  This weekend I had hoped to spend a lot of time making a ton of cards.  Well, I made one.  LOL!  But I did get other things done (filed State Income Tax for one and, thank you Jesus - we don't owe).  I also took a few naps along the way...all in all it was a good day.

Since yesterday was Valentine's Day I didn't see the point to making a Valentine....and since St. Patrick's Day is the next holiday I decided to start with a St. Patrick's Day card.  What do you think?


The papers are from DCWV from one of the Stacks....for the life of me I can't remember which one.  I colored the image with colored pencils....I just wasn't in the mood to use markers.  Speaking of markers - has anyone tried those Camelon Markers yet?  I've been thinking about trying them.  Anyway - back to this card.  The image is from Deedee's Digis called "Irish Blessings".  The great thing about Deedee's Digis is that they come in sets and you get the image plus sentiments and even papers.  The only thing you need to add is your creativity!

I haven't entered challenges in a while so why not enter a few :)

Here's something I posted on Facebook this morning...holds a lot of truth...

God bless you today!  Thank you for stopping by.  Hope you come again real soon!!!!

Bright Christmas

Aloha Friday!  Ok, ok, I know it's not Friday....but over at Kitty Bee Designs we have a new Aloha Friday challenge - and yes, I'm late as usual...UGH!.  This round the theme is Unusual Colored Christmas.  Forget the red and green...time to get out the different colors!  Now you can still use colors red, green, or gold....just not together.  Our sponsor is Handmade Harbour.   

For my card I did use green...but a green that I usually don't use - a bright lime green!  And what goes with lime green?  Well hot pink of course!  LOL!!

Thanks / Tender Thoughts

Friday - time for a new Aloha Friday Challenge at Kitty Bee Designs.  This round our challenge is "Thanks/Thank You".  It's such a great time of year - time to count our blessings...time to tell those you love how much you appreciate them and why they are special to you.  Why not create a card and just say "thanks".

Our sponsor for this round is A Day For Daisies.  I used an image called Tender Thoughts

Come on over to Kitty Bee and join our Aloha Friday challenge.  And of course - tell someone how thankful you are for them.  Speaking of being thankful - thanks for stopping by today!!  I sincerely appreciate you spending some time with me.  God bless you!!!

Autumn thoughts

I love's my favorite time of year.  But today there is 3-4 inches of snow on the ground - so it's Nov.17th and I'm already done with Winter!  LOL!!  So I'm thinking back to last week when the leaves were still falling and the weather was "sweater weather". 

My card today is from a Deedee's Digis set called "Stitchy Fall".  I love the country feel to this set!  Of course the images come color or not colored...and since I don't have a colored printer I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color the image.  Add some twine and I think it's the perfect Fall card:

Thanks for stopping by today.  God bless you!!!
