Enjoying the Moment

Yesterday was a crazy day; first my cable service went out 22 times, this is for my internet and phone, the service man comes (for the second time in one week) fixes everything, then I get on the phone for Dell tech services to get all the kinks out, and I was cut off 5 times, now you know how hard it is to get them to start with :), what happened you ask? Well what else, :) my cable went down again after just one hour of the service guy being here, so I called again, from a neighbors phone, to be told every one in the neighborhood is down, but I should have no more problems after they fix the outside pole boxes. So in the mist of this I was think of a serene place and I created this little scene of looking out of my window.

The stamps are from DRS, and the inches are from cape arago rubberstamps, used nesties to cut out frame.

Have a Blessed Day

Well aren't you the inspiration to take a day like that and turn it into a beautiful scenic card like this? It's just so sweet Becky, I love the details and serenity of it. I would sit by the window holding Herc all day long. ;)

Such a cute idea to hang those four mini picture frames on the wall. The picot ribbon swag for the window really worked out well, too.

Good luck with your cable service. That sounds like a nightmare.

Technology, what a wonderful thing.
Technology, what a frustrating thing!!
It's like a man: can't live with them, can't live without them (sometimes)hehe.
Anyway, love the serene scene.

I love how when having such a bad day, you created such a beautiful scene outside the window! A true testimony to how God wants us to live our lives - even when the going gets tough it's all about we re-act and handle things that bear witness.

Beautiful job on your coloring and neat idea!!

Blessings to you!!
