My Life Scripture

Philippians 4:4-7 (ESV English Standard Version) Holy Bible
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let the reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds through Christ Jesus.

From my South African Friend!

For several months I have corresponded with Erna from South Africa.  We met through the Cricut Message Board.  I recently sent her some accessories for her Gypsy because it is difficult to get these items in South Africa. 

Today I was thinking about Erna and about 30 minutes later the doorbell rang.  It was the mail carrier with a package from her!  What fun it was to open and see all the goodies from South Africa!  Even the purple paper bag!  Look at all the goodies...

Assorted Cards

I have been busy making cards for the past several days.  Most of the cards are simple and easily made.  There are 5 sets of cards.  These cards are for Lucy (my sister) and my Sunday School class.

The first 3 sets of cards are for Lucy's friends.

 The last two sets are for the Outreach person of our Sunday School class.

Ever since I saw MamaC's Birthday Contest Submission here,
I have wanted to use the Twinkle image from Nursery Rhymes on something! LOL Her layout was one of my favs for the contest.Love I was finally able to sit down and create something today, so I decided to use it as my entry into the monthly contest. Here is the side step card I made. Cut sizes are on my blog. Thanks for the inspiration MamaC!
