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!!!!
