Busy, Busy, Busy!

I have been so busy these last couple of months! A new baby really keeps you on your toes and ours is no different. She is a sweet beauty and the whole family just dotes on her.

 
 
So now I am trying to get back into the swing of things. I actually have been making cards. I just keep forgetting to take pictures of them. Not that they are knock your socks off beautiful or creative but I did make them.
 

So I am going to try my best and stop by with more cards. I am also going to add some new thing to this blog like my love of Essential Oils and other crafty things I am up too.

Thanks for stopping by!!

A Verse I Needed For Today

Morning friends! Yep I am back today with another card. I bought spiral pack of scrapbook papers at a garage sale. These papers you use to journal on scrapbook pages. I use them on my cards since I don’t scrapbook a lot.

I loves the colors of this papers and after I stamped my verse I used a gold pen to fill in the dots around it. The hardest part of this card was making the bow. I don’t know why I find them so difficult to make!
