Welcome to my World

Welcome to my little corner of the vast God planned domain. I plan to share mostly my card projects here, you might even possible see some scrapping, quilt projects, and photography. Who knows I may even try other other craft projects. I am also going to share a selection of little recipe cards I have collected over the past few years - scrapped, of course. There may even be some little things of greatness of my daily life. Every now and then, I might even vent!

Recipe of the Week

I have been doing recipes swap s for quite some time now and am going to try to post a new recipe each week. I try to keep my cards really simple and fairly flat in order to keep them from getting caught on one another and to get more in my box. My next project will be to make a handcrafted box to store them in.
This recipe is a favorite of my family. We especially like to make it around the holidays . Very festive looking and a great gift wrapped in red or green celephane topped with a big bow and a copy of the recipe.

Is What the Heart Needs all the Time.Another card for one of my swap groups. This was a challenge on SCS and I had a lot of fun doing it, tho getting the window to turn out not too deep for the envelope was also a challenge. I have enjoyed doing many of the challenges on the SCS site; just wish I had more time to do them. I have also challenged myself this year to use each of my stamp sets at least 10 times or ebay them. I have quite a collection - maybe I will get more use out of them now that I have become a Stampin Up consultant. I love their paper and stamps. Thus , I have way more cards than I can ever use so have been donating them to Cards for Cause or charities thta can use them. If you know of a charity that like to use handmade cards to make someone's day please let me know and I will see how I can fulfill that wish. I love creating cards and thing to make others happy and thank my God for giving me the patience and talents.I pray each of you have a great day today and always. Smile it brightens other lives as well as your own.

So Much Fun - God Is Wonderful

I had such a great time putting my blog spot together last night. Today I was home yet with this horrible cold so I had a great time going through and paying all of our monthly bills. After that hubby and I talked about our plans for my Spring Break in just about 3 weeks. We have reservations for the Oregon Coast, one of my favs. Talked about where we will go and things we will do. I can hardly wait to get out of town. We did not go on any long or short-term, for that matter, vacation last summer. Dan started with chest pain in June and from there spent 2 days (July 34-) in hospital and received two stents. One week later (July 11-12) did the same thing again - yes two more stents. Came home and then next evening (July 12-13) thru ER and an ambulance ride for two days spent in the hospital with a high fever due to a heart attack that day. Could not do much of anything all summer so on September 26 had another day in the hospital only to be told everything was working fine. Finally on October 25 he could not stand it any longer and we found a new cardiologist and he said there was nothing he could do, just exercise it off. A week later went to another Cardio guy and he said in the hospital in three days. One of the stents has blocked an artery. So he had an angiogram October 28, and was told going nowhere but admitted to hospital unti lwe can do surgery after the Plavix leaches out of systems. Well guess what 8 days later (Nov4) he had open heart surgery and a quad bypass performed. Loved this team of guys. Today he went for his 4 mo check and DR says eveything is lokking good considering he cracked a spot alost 2 months ago. Yes he was bad in dec & Jan and helped friends shovel our 5 feet of snow in a week. I am so excited that is behind us. Thanks for listening to my rambling. I know all along that all of the prayers and best wishes and God's hand with those drs that he came through OK.

Where do I begin?

I have had a lot of fun setting up this blogspot. I have changed it a million times and think it is time I go to bed. Bed - what is that. Thanks Terry for the inspiration. I have also checked out several blogs from Splitcoaststampers site this evening and gotten may great ideas. I do have to say Splitcoaststampers has give me a new outlook on life. I have read so many devotional and testimonies since the beginning of the year when I got quite active. I think I spend all of my spare time creating to give anymore. yet feel so blessed and fulfilled by doing this. Please feel free to leave comments and let me know what you think.

This card was made for a swap group that I belong to on Yahoo Group. I love this stamp. My goal this year was to use each and every(over 50) stamps at least twice. This was such a fun hard to make and sure hope the recipients enjoy it also.
