I may schedule another one because I had 2 more cute card ideas!! Watch your emails! If your not on my list and want to be - click the link to the right of the page!!

Did you miss Stamp-a-palooza last month??

If you didn't make class last month you missed a chance to get yourself ready for the upcoming holidays! We made a super cute fall card and 4 Christmas gift tags! I couldn't have done it without the new CTMH cricut cartridge - Art Philosophy, and my favorite new stamps - Remarkable Wreaths & the SOM: Holiday Magic. I also used paper from Dreamin' and Believe! Don't miss out next month - Mark your calendars NOW (Nov. 20 & 21).

Wedding Shower Gift

Rich is in our good friend Hal's wedding in a couple of weeks and I put together a basket for the shower...which was weeks ago...but, I wanted to show the cute things I did to add some personality! The bag topper flowers and the lil' card flowers were made with pages from some old books (that were to be tossed from a used book store). The candle was done using our newest CTMH alphabet - "Trinity Alphabet" and I used misc other CTMH papers! OH! and to save money on basket filler I also used our shredder to shred pages from the same book! Recycle BABY!!

So, I saw these really cute flower ideas on Brenda Frerich's blog and had to try this one. I decided to spray my colonial white punchs with vineyard berry re-inker and then painted them with the prisma glitter/shimmer paint mix. I love how it turned out - it looks really pretty in person. I used the leftover paint mix to stamp butterflies on the background paper (hard to see in the picture). Thanks Brenda!!

Just a thought...

I heard a cool statement the other day and wrote it on the mirror in our dining room. You can't go out the front door without seeing it (which is dreadful right now..seeing my bulging prego belly sooo frequently, lol!). I tend to use this mirror for chores and reminders, but I couldn't pass up this opportunity to reach my children...and myself.

"People see what you do...God sees why you do it"

Makes you stop and think, huh? Why do we do the things we do...especially the "nice" or "thoughtful" things we do?? Are we doing it to truly bless someone, or to say "look at me"? I am trying to remember that what I do has a purpose and/or a consequence. What do I want God to see? others? What does it say about who I want to be?
My hope is to be a good friend, an inspirational teacher in my classes....and a wife and mother that makes sure my children and husband never go a day without knowing how much I love them.
