A Couple Just For You

Hello Friends!  Today I have a couple of cards that I've made just because.  I needed a couple cards to send to a couple ladies just because and so I put these together.  The top one I used an image that I had found free online ( if you know where it's from do let me know so I can give credit).  I layered it up and added a lovely ribbon that added a soft touch and yet didn't take away from the lovely backdrop.  

Here I have a card that I put together with some lovely papers and a piece of a doily.  I added the touch of ribbon for her to have a place to sit.  She's a lovely girl from Anna Stillwell at Cuttlebug Cuties.    I love many of the sweet girls that she draws.  This girl reminded me of the lady that I coloured her up for.  I tried to colour her to compliment the papers.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC crafting blog.  

Thanks for dropping by!  It's so nice to be able to share my creations with you!

Time for a Mini Album

Hello Friends!  The Lord has been blessing me with many things lately and one of them is this.  Today I have a lovely little album to share with you that I created from a kit that my sweet friend Nancy Nickel from Nickel Nook is selling.  You can check out her blog and see what she has done with this kit.  I was so excited to receive it that I did it all in one day! It did take a few hours and my family was so wonderful to let me take the time.  Talk about being inspired. LOL So I hope you have some time to take in all the pics I'm sharing.  This album is full of lovely things, pockets and places to store pictures and memories.  Hope you enjoy!

It was so fun to put this together and one day I would love to make another mini was really fun!  Plus you're left with something special to keep.

I would like to share this with Word Art Wednesday. My favourite anything goes challenge blog.

Now here are some closer up pics that I took so that you can see each page better if you'd like.

If you've made it all the way down here! Thank you for taking the time to peek at all my pics.  It was a real joy to make this and to also be able to share it with you! May you have a beautiful day and thank the Lord for all that he has given!

Sunny Cushion

Hello Friends! Sorry I've been so quiet.  Life has been full and I've had lots of personal challenges lately.  I have been doing a bit of this and that throughout it all and here are a couple of the things I accomplished.  First is this wonderful old chair that used to sit in my grandparents living room.  It's a bit worn and used, but I think it adds to it's charm.  It desperately needed a new cushion and material since it was coming apart.  So.... I bought a piece of thick foam... just because I thought it would be more comfortable.  Then I had found this wonderful piece of fabric in my stash.  (I have no idea where it came from?) It was bright and sunny and makes me happy.  I think I'll be painting the chair white this coming summer.  It has a lovely shine to the scroll pattern so this second picture show it off more.  All the kids love this seat now and it makes crafting more enjoyable. :)  It sits in my crafty spot.

Then I have some lovely wash clothes to show you.  I just adore this combination of colours.  I made a bakers dozen of them after I made a bunch of little blue variegated baby washcloths for a cousin of mine... plus extras.  Sorry I forgot to take a pic.  I will take a pic if I make more of them since I have some more yarn left.

It's just wonderful how God puts these little moments in our lives to bring us delight.  Hope you are all having a wonderful day enjoying the wonderful things that God has blessed you with!
