Some Days Are Just Confusing

I don't know how many of you struggle occasionally with the design or colors or focus that you want your card to have. Some days it is easy for me and other days I really do a lot of web searching for inspiration. I was pleasantly surprised with this one.

I didn't have to do much stamping or cutting. The Designer Tag is The Paper Studio. I got several packages of the butterfly from Michael's. The Die Cut is K&COMPANY. I stamped the sentiment "Hi" on it and that was about the extent of it. One of my super simple cards. I loved how it turned out. 

I am not sure what most of you put on the inside of your cards but for me finding a sentiment or coming up with something other than "Thinking of You" can be challenging. I do a lot of searching on the internet for suggestions.

I found this "sentiment" and used it in this card. It fits me perfectly on some days:

"I was just sitting here thinking of you, 
and wondering if you were thinking of me, 
and if so, were you thinking of me thinking of you 
and I got so mixed up, I forgot why I'm sending you this card!"

My friend will get a chuckle out of it.

"As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving."
Colossians 2:6-7

Sunshine, Laughter, Love

I love butterflies! I especially love the Monarch Butterflies.
They remind me of spring and sunshine and we are overdue for some of that right about now. It won't be much longer. 

Here is a card I made using one of my favorite butterfly punches.

Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug
Tag: Michaels
Butterfly: Martha Stewart Punch
Sentiment: Simon Says Stamp ~ Watts Up

In spite of all that is going on in this world, I pray that you will choose to be filled with sunshine, laughter, and love and be on the lookout for butterflies!

"The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way."
PSALM 37:23

You Brighten My Day

Hope all of you are having brighter days. We did down here in the southern part of Georgia. I have had lots of time to work on some cards with the weather being as nasty as it has been. It looks like brighter and warmer days are ahead for us. Hope that is the case for you too.

Love this sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Set ~ Watts Up. Used my Sizzix Heart Framelits set and added a few sequins. I always I forget about my sequins.

Thank you for stopping by.

"Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 4:13-14

A Little Sunshine

I know we have had some dreary, cold days here in Georgia lately but not nearly as bad as some of you. It has been a rough winter for many.

So even though we might not be having lots of the actual sun shining, we can be sunshine for each other by encouraging one another. I love this the Technique Tuesday sentiment that I have. Here is a card I made with it.

Embossing Folder: The Paper Studio
"Sun" ~ My Mind's Eye ~ "Beautiful" stamped with Hero Arts Show Ink Butter Bar
Sentiment: Technique Tuesday  ~ "Bring On The Sun"


"But Jesus looked at them and said, "With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible."
