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!)
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!
