Life is Sweet

I hope every one feels this way about their life. I know people are going through so many different things, but I hope they can see the many things right in front of them that they are blessed with. I do feel MY LIFE is SWEET, so so thankful. The road is not always easy but things pass and I have learned to be patient and have FAITH and HOPE.

And life is always SWEET when you can indulge in a sweet treat like a cupcake. I found this adorable cupcake set at Michaels there called {Foot-Longs} by Hampton Arts. No name though for this specific set.But its oober cute!!!

scrapbook kits, sewing and lots of icing OH MY!!

We had a incredible fall day, could have comfortably worn a light jacket. Just a welcoming change, we have been roasting in the hundreds for weeks. Tomorrow its back to the high 90's. I signed up for The Girls Loft kit of the month back in July, hoping to jump start my scrapbooking. Its so much fun to get that package and not know what to expect, let me tell you the kits are amazing, such great stuff inside. Have I a started to scrap yet? NO, but I have been printing pictures and preparing to get my tush in gear =0) I have a bad habit of not printing anything. Stayed tuned for that!

Look I sewed with brown thread and I am so luving it!I tell you this sewing on paper crafts is AWESOME, it makes such a impact on your cards ( as I have not sewn on anything else YET) but I cant image any other projects not looking AMAZING as well!!

Can someone actually be in love with a card?

Well thats how I am feeling. So in love with this card, as if that could even began to be true. I love tall cards and this one is 9 x 4, I love that the trees are 3D,I love the tag and I love the ribbon and how its fed through the tag. Those elements are truely my 3 loves of card making. I really like the colors too!!!! I submitted this card as my first magazine submission. I have had it downloaded for over a month but wanted to watermark it first, so VIOLA here it is in all its FABULOUSNESS. Can you tell Im ooberly excited about it.

If your reading this it means its Friday and a 3 dayer at that, enjoy your family, barbeque, the great outdoors, the heat, the pool, your friends, the good music playing on the radio and most of all ENJOY yourself. Happy Labor Day=O)
