First Post of 2015

Good Morning all!  Hope you all are feeling well and staying warm.  

THOUGHTS:  I was thinking about New Year resolutions, how we always want to change things we do for the New Year; well we should treat each new day that way, for we may not have a tomorrow. 

Psalm 39:4
"Show me, LORD, my life's end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting my life is.


I created this card for Our Daily Bread sketch challenge.  

I used ODB Asters & leaves die using ODB Blooming Garden collection papers, I also used ODB Crocheted circle die to mount it on. Used cuttle bug swiss dots and ribbon from Papertrey (spring Moss).

Then I created this card for the House Mouse Challenge (Sketch)
5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card,  House Mouse stamp (Tails of True Love) colored with copics and used cuttlebug embossing folders. The design paper is part of  a win I received  from America Kuhn.

Well that is it for me, Thank you for coming  by. You all have a Blessed weekend.
