Letting my Wings Soar...

I just got back from a FABULOUS weekend away scrapbooking with a great group of ladies in the beautiful Muskoka area.  I was quite diligent and completed 48 pages and a few cards!  As I was working away at my kids' baby books...I was reflecting on how blessed I was with a great family.  I might be bragging, but my kids are pretty cute...and pretty smart! Lots of certificates and awards in those books!  A proud momma I am!  Speaking of mothers....don't forget that mother's day is coming up!  Here is the card  I created for the occation to celebrate !!! It qualifies for some challenges:
One of the ladies I scrapped with this weekend is a Red Hatter...and she inspires me to try wild things sometimes!  I've had this birdie coloured for a while but put him on this bright and happy card with a feather...just 'cuz that is wild and crazy!! A feather is not something I usually use, but I am learning to try new things...and be inspired by the Holy Spirit within me to be bold in my faith ...and I think that might be being reflected in my cards...(or maybe it was the last card I made on a wacky weekend with very little sleep!)
It gets to enter at http://movingalongwiththetimes.blogspot.com/ for "anything goes", http://cardsformen.blogspot.com/ for "circles" (I used a new embossing folder on the weekend!) and it might be pushing it a bit but at http://paperplaychallenges.blogspot.com/ for using something not intended for crafting....I hope my feather qualifies...it did fall of a boa in the kids' dress up box!! And I have never used one in crafting!!


This past Easter weekend was a special weekend for our nephew Jason...HE GOT ENGAGED!! We are all so excited...and the royal wedding thing happened too...so I just had to celebrate the "love birds" with this cute card!!!  Another addition to our great family, qualifies for "weddings" at http://craftysentiments.blogspot.com/ and the colours pink/blue/brown at http://colourcreatechallenge.blogspot.com/ (which is quickly becoming one of my favourite challenge blogs....)These birdies are so cute...and the colouring turned out great...here's a close-up...just so I can brag!
I just discovered that all my cards have birds on them!! How weird is that...Whoo hoo...that means I can enter http://stampchallenges.blogspot.com/ for "something with wings" three times over!
It was a nice weekend...a chance to reflect, and let my "wings soar" a bit and be challenged to see how God is going to use me in the future!
