Praying for You/Thinking of You!

A very special lady in our church has received a awesome job opportunity and is moving far away.  She has no family where she is going and is a bit scared, but yet very excited, too.  She will be greatly missed in our church.  So this week is her last time with us in church so we are having a special meal and cake as a kind of like going away party.  So I wanted to give her a special card from just my family just to let her know that she is and will be in our prayers and thoughts as she makes this huge change in her life.  I am very pleased how this card turned out.  My pictures just don't do it justice at all.  Dark, cloudy, windy days here in Ohio no sunshine, so that doesn't help at all with my pictures. 

I used:
Cuttlebug Folder from the Love's in the Air pack
Martha Stewart Punch:  Lattice
DCWV The Linen Closet Stack for the BG paper
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy
Pebbles Chalk for the extra little bit of sparkle on the chandelier
Paper Flower from my stash
Red Satin and black Ribbon ribbon from my stash
I-rock gems

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a quick peek at what I have been up to lately. 
 I hope you have a wonderful day!

Loads of Fun Birthday!

Hey dear followers, I hope everyone is doing great.  Here in Ohio, we are having crazy weather.  One day it is in the 60's and the next we are having high winds and snow!  Keeps you on your toes right??? 

This card has a story, I hope you like stories!  I made it for my BIL, and it caused a lot of laughter from me.  So in the wee hours of the morning after my hubby left for work, I stayed up and enjoyed the silence of our home.  That is when I do my best work, when the house is quiet, which is very rare when you have 3 kids.  Anyways, I decided to make a wagon full of the words "fun".  So as after I had cut out all these tiny words "fun", the fun began.  I would move a piece of paper and it would cause the the words to fall/move around on the table...and I would say, "Oh no my fun is getting blown away!"   Or I would misplace them and that would cause me to say to myself, "Where did the fun go!"  I started laughing at myself and wishing my kids were around to hear the "fun" I was having. It went on like that the whole time I made it.  What a great story I had to tell my kids when they got up that morning!  It was fun!  0.0   Oh well, when you are sleep deprived, apparently strange things happen and you tend to get a little silly!  I can truly say that I had fun making this card! 

I used:
A Child's Year Cartridge for the Wagon
Sweet Treats Cartridge for the word "Fun"
Plantin SchoolBook Cartridge for the grass with flowers
Blue Cardstock
DCWV The Spring Stack for the BG paper
Flower Soft for the Grass and the the flowers

Some pennies
Dimensional Dots

I hope you enjoyed my little story of fun! 
 Have a terrific day!
