Happy Anniversary

Hello Everyone! I hope you had a great time with the blog hop this weekend!

One of my cyber sister's parents is having a 40th Anniversary celebration coming up, so she asked the cyber gals if we could make a card to honor their years of commitment.

Marriage is a process. Yes, we all want it to be perfect in every way - reality -we are human. Every day you will learn something new about each other. You will have your ups and downs; your joys and sorrows --- So what if he/she didn't pick a pair of sox off the floor or cleaned a dish or put the cap back on the toothpaste, or takes the covers (lol). I can go on an on... After the dust settles it's "just you and me kiddo".   You begin as a seed and blossom into a flower. Nurtured with the right nutrients (God).

I pray for all marriages of today to slow down and enjoy life together. Remember what did he/she do to make you laugh... touch of the hand or just a simple "LOVE YOU HUN". God says that we are not to be alone. I look forward to all my days with my hubby. DON'T GIVE UP!

My Creative TIme Throwback Thursday & RAK Challenge

Happy Day! Emma from has combined this weeks challenge with her friend Joy from Emma asked for us to use our OLDER carts! There are just so many new ones out there today, that our older carts are feeling neglected! This week's Throwback Thursday challenge is make an "Animal" theme project! Also do a RAK (Random Act of Kindness) this week. Visit Seniors home, veterans or a animal shelter. Make a card of encouragement to a Juvenal, old friend, family members, etc. A simple hello and smile standing in line can make someones day. Our society is always in such a rush that we forget to S-M-I-L-E and breath. I am thinking of you :0)! Have a great day!

Deepest Sympathy

Hello Everyone, A cyber friend had a loss in her family. She expressed the difficulties of making a sympathy card. I guess it really doesn't hit until it happens to someone you know. Whether it is family, friends or someone you just met. I've come to realize that sympathy cards is a touch away from a hug and kiss. Knowing that you took the time to acknowledge their sorrow. Once they open their cards it turns out to be words of encouragement. Helping to remember the goods times, funny times and to be assured that things will be alright. They are in the arms of the Almighty - pain and suffering is no longer - PEACE IS IN THE AIR.
So in saying this call a family member you haven't spoken to in a while; send a RAK (Random Act of Kindness) card to an old friend, neighbor, or senior, and mend those agruments and forgive the ones who hurt you. Enjoy every moment you have with those you care for.

Cartridge: Lyrical Letters
Paper: Recollection
Clear Stamp: Hero Arts
Bling: Michaels and Stickles
