My sister is going to get a big kick out of this card.  She is going through some particularly difficult trials at work and worrying a little about how things are going to turn out.  Luckily she shares my goofy sense of humor : ) so I know this little giggle will lift her spirits.

Pretty Toppings for this party!

Hello crafty friends and thank you for stopping by today! I am here to introduce a new challenge at the Seize The Birthday challenge blog where we bring you a new challenge every two weeks.  Some weeks Nancy suggests a "topping" for us to follow but this challenge is an "Anything Goes" challenge! : ) where as long as it is a birthday theme you can dazzle us with anything you make!






I used a delicate die from Serendipity Stamps for this fast and simple "no toppings" card .  I cut several cupcakes from white cs and one from pink cs.  I glued two directly to my card front but for the center cupcake I glued three cuts together for some dimension - and sandwiching a pink one between the whites for a hint of color.   Sweet! : ) 



Please join me at the Seize The Birthday challenge blog where you will be inspired by our talented DT.  We all hope you will consider joining us for this fun challenge.

Thank you again for stopping by!

Simple is good

Today I want to share a card I created as a Simplicity Sister for Penny Black.



Not to get too deep - but I wanted to share a quick thought I had while making my card : ).

Life sometimes gets a little crazy and this year I feel like I have lived 20 lifetimes.  When things have gotten hard I have tried to remember back to when times were easier and more carefree and to remember that those days will come again. : )

This simple little card kind of speaks to me of the hope of brighter days with the shadow of hard times growing dimmer.  I was going to make this a Sympathy card but I realized it isn't with Sympathy that I look back on this year.  Actually many blessings have come to me as a result of my trials and growing stronger and closer to Jesus and the Hope He offers is, by far, worth it all!!

I hope you will look beyond the clouds that may be covering your happiness and find rest and peace in Jesus too : )

BIG (((Hugs)))

Sisters

Just a quick post from me to show you this funny card I made for my sister.









Luckily for me she "gets" me heeheehee  And lucky for me she lives in Seattle so she can't pound me! LOL

You know what I think is really funny? That there are so many people out there that would send a card like this that they actually made a rubber stamp for it!


Have a fun day : )
