Stay strong

Sharing an encouragement card today. Find someone to be kind to today. Everyone has a story ( that’s often too difficult to share with others) and needs a hug or a kind word. #CallingAllSistahs #CAS14 #CasualFridays #EncouragementChallenge

Bloom where you are planted

A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it, it just blooms.

I love this quote. I find too often I compare myself with others. Usually it’s just in my thoughts and I don t express it but it tends to affect my self-confidence when I do. We all have unique talents and abilities. As I see the flowers beginning to bloom here, I will remind myself to ” bloom where I am planted”.


Pay it Forward Day

What are you doing today to pay it forward? I’m still deciding. Would love to hear your story.

Here’s my card for today. Used dry embossing in the background, and colored the Springtime Foil paper from Stampin Up with my Zig brush Real Color markers that my daughter bought while in Japan. They are my new favorite colouring marker. Have a great day!

The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

The intent of this blog is to have a place where I keep track of the cards I make. I have been wanting to do this since I started making cards approximately 5 years ago. Not sure how much I will write. It may be mostly photos. At least I am getting started and sometimes that’s the hardest part.
