Hi there.....

on this beautiful Thursday!!! Well, it was not so beautiful earlier, but I am good now. I got some Therapy time in and that made it all better. This morning, my DD, 4 y.o., decided that she wanted cereal, off course, being her, she did not eat it all at the table. I was upstairs cleaning the bathrooms, making the beds, and cleaning up my stamp room, when she comes running in "Mommy, mommy, I won't do it again!" I asked her you won't do what again, when she replied SPILL the cereal in NeNe's room (that is her big sisters room !!) See now, she knows better than bringing that bowl of cereal upstairs to begin with, but my child spilled Honey Bunches of Oats all over the carpet!!!! Boy was I upset! I know it is just cereal, but this happened way too often lately, and every time they are told not to take their food upstairs, they go totally against that rule. So, I cleaned up the mess, told my 4 y.o. to go in her room and not move ;P, yeah right, since when is a 4 y.o. sitting still for longer than 2 minutes? All right, after I cleaned up I just went into my half way clean stamp room and just created 2 cards, and let me tell you, while I was doing that I had to tell myself, why in the world did you get so upset, it is just cereal and milk, it won't leave a stain. It was just at that moment, I could have choked her :D:D:D.

I guess what I am trying to say is, that even with those little things that happen when you have children, Therapy, always helps, plus you get to make someone else's day in the progress.

So, here are the 2 cards I got done during my Therapy session ;P

Girly girl card, create in me.........


Paper: PTI White, SU Pretty in Pink, Basic Grey Eva pad

Stamp: Verve Plain Jane Psalm 51:10

Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black, for the sponging of the edges Su Certainly Celery, VersaColor Orchid

Accessories: Nesties scalloped circles, Standard Circles Large, Martha Stewart Butterfly punch, Basic Grey button, Prima Daisy Doodles in Candy Pink, pink half pearls, white grosgrain ribbon, pink sheer ribbon, Heirloom Keepsakes Vintage Collection small heart button, Schimmerz Blingz in Pink Poinsettia (for the butterfly), dimensionals, foam tape, double sided tape

So, what do you think about this girly girl card? This is for a teenage girl who just got in some trouble recently and her aunt (a friend of mine) wants to let her know that she cares about her and that God can help you, if you let HIM!!!

On to my second card, well, this one is a masculine one, and just like the one above this one was made with a special person in mind, another teenager, who is being lost out there in this big world! I tell ya, Satan sure is trying hard to destroy our Youth.

I know the plans I have for you............

Paper: PTI White, True Black, Basic Grey Granola pad

Stamp: Verve Jeremiah 29:11

Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black, SU Close to Cocoa

Nesties rectangles, Basic Grey Granola buttons, Jute cord from Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, Tim Holtz Distressing tool, light blue saddle stitched grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals, foam tape

A pretty simple card, but this scripture has so much power to it. I sure hope that this young man gets this understanding and turns his life around.

Well, that is it for now!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I sure had fun creating today and I hope you'll have fun looking at them ;D.

See you all later.

Both cards are absolutely, perfect!!! You are so caring, and so right about all of the evil our youth have to face everyday. I teach emotionally impaired high school students and it's a wonder some of them have even made it to the teenage years. Keep those amazing cards coming, girl.

First of all huge hugs to you as a mom. I have had so many of those times. I just tucked my girls in at college and I am missing the days my little one would be a huge pain. She will be 18 in a few days. Secondly I am glad you got to use some therapy to make these great cards. They really do say it all. The scriptures are terrific. Hugs to goes fast...

Although my chldren are all grown up I remember what a hard job it was when they were little. Quite challenging at times too. :) But I would not change a thing as I am sure you feel too.

I*love* both of your cards they are gorgeous. I love that you made one of them for a man.
