Good Tuesday morning.......

my friends. I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and good start to the week. My family and I had a wonderful weekend meeting some old friends we knew from Okinawa,Japan. We spent most of our day up in Phoenix it was really fun. The visit was way too short, but they are only in AZ for a few days and are heading back to Texas tomorrow :C. The 2 1/2 hours ride up there to Phoenix was long (especially if you have two kids in the back seat fussing "are we there yet?"), but well worth it.





All right now on to my post for today. I am trying to get better in doing challenges and this weeks challenge over at the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Blog is just the right one for me. First of all I love the scripture they chose for this week, Jeremiah 29:11, so powerful and so reassuring!!! This week they are doing a sketch challenge and I loved it the minute I saw it, so I dropped the laundry, not literally :D, and went into my room and just went for it. Have a look at my take on the challenge





Jeremiah 29:11 SSCC4


Recipe:
Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, Bazzill textured cs shade of green, Basic Grey Boxer

Stamps: Verve Cross from Notes of Prayer, Scripture from Jeremiah 29:11

Ink: SU Mellow Moss, SU Certainly Celery (for the distressing on the bottom corner)

Accessories: Nesties scalloped circle and standard circle large, silver cross charm from WalMart, Prima Hydrangea from the Deep Woods Collection, beige lace from Joann, Making Memories silver brads, foam tape, domensionals, double sided tape, pearl lettuce Dew Drop

So, what y'all think? I have enjoyed making this card, kind of encouraging myself a bit here ;D.

Oh hello there friend. I have not been back to check my blog in while. I am sporadic at best these days since going back to work. I am so sorry, I never received any emails from you. However I was not on the computer much last year. It was my first year back to teaching and I had my hands full trying to balance home and work after 8 yrs. Wow you've been busy. When I have more time I want to come back and check out all of your beautiful creations. It's been a long time for me. However I am enjoying the season God has me in. It is so good to hear from you. I'm glad I thought to check my blog. I can remember when I checked it a million times a day. Funny how things change. God bless you my friend. I hope to stay in touch.
