When things are hard.....

....or when life gives you make a card for it! I sent this card to someone very close to me who is going through a heartbreaking situation in life. I wanted to send her a card with an uplifting message. And no, it does not say 'make lemonade' on the inside, because, although I do try to look at the positive angles to any situation, and I do believe that everything that happens in our lives happens for a reason, and believe that we become stronger from our trials in life, sometimes you just have to be sad for a while and let the hurt out before you are able to move on. I know God has a plan and a purpose for each of us in this life and that plan involes joy and sorrow. This is how we grow and learn to love, and learn to lean on Him for peace, comfort and the healing of our hearts.

I hope that time will heal her sadness, and that she will be happy and joyful again shortly.

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!

A Party Elephant!

I mean who doesn't love an elephant in a party hat!

It feels like forever since I have taken part in a challenge over at the CAS-ual Fridays blog! This weeks' challenge was to use stickers!
I found these little party hat stickers a few months ago, and thought they were just so cute! I think they will work well to make birthday cards for kiddos, which is what this card is for.

The last time I went to my favorite stamp store, my oldest son, Cody, asked me if I would get a stamp of an elephant. I saw this stamp and thought it was super cute, so Cody got his wish!

t feels good to take part in a challenge once again, and I am hoping that as of Wednesday when the three big boys go back to school, that I will be able to put the baby down for a nap and ignore all the other things I have to do, and make some cards!!!! Yay for fall, yay for school and yay for getting to once again do the things I love on a more regular basis!

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!

Yes, I am still here!

I cannot believe it has been a month since I have last posted! Yes, I am still alive, and yes I am still paper crafting and card making! August was just a crazy month for us. It was one vacation after another, with just a few days in between each one....just enough time for laundry!

Here is a card that is basically the same as the last card that was posted. The colors were just changed up a bit and the size was changed to a regular A2 sized card.

Gonna keep this super short.....the 3 big boys go back to school on Wednesday, and I have a TON of things to do!

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!
