Sowing Blessings
If you want to make a difference
In other people's lives,
Be thoughtful and considerate,
Be slow to criticize.
Be helpful when you're needed,
Let others know you care,
Be patient and forgiving
When hurts are hard to bear.
Do always unto others
As you'd have done to you,
For when you sow God's blessings,
You'll reap His harvest too
- Vi B. Chevalier

💙💙💙
Have a happy day!

♥ I need Followers ♥

Hello, now... {drum roll please} I have added a "follow me" button at the top of the page.   So... if ya ever wondered why you weren't able to find the button before.... its cause I live under a rock.... well, not really...  but, I have heard this before from a fellow co-worker when waiting to be seated at an I Hop restaurant.   I said, "I had never eaten here before."        With a look of surprise..  she replied.. "Have you been living under a rock?"

In fact, ssshhhh!  don't tell anyone, but -  I've never eaten a White Castle hamburger, either...  so, whatever.    

Well... anyhoo...     I hope you all have a good day.  ♥

Encouragement for today

Jesus you are our Healer,  you are the Truth,  you love your children,... we love you.    We praise you Father,  you gave your Son, Praise you Father,  you've given life.

We are hopeful,  you've given Life, and on the Cross Jesus gave His Life,  what more  could you do?    What more could You do - You gave for us your Life.

"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me."   Revelation 3:20

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life."  John 6:47

Nestling Doll Cards

Nestling Dolls

A matryoshka doll (Russian), also known as a Russian nestling doll or Russian doll, is a set of wooden dolls of decreasing size placed one inside another.  ❤❤   In this case these dolls were fashioned by using card stock.   They do nestle down inside the other.   These are just too cute!   It may be hard to part with this trio.  ♥♥♥   The head tops do open for a little note to be placed inside.





Thank you for popping by to visit!

Touch of Spring card

 A Touch of Spring
Butterflies dancing on soft breezes.
💙💙💙
I "antiqued" this card on the edges, birdcage, and embossed design using distress inks in tumbled glass, vintage photo, and wild honey.
Then I lightly brushed on a tiny bit of - forever red & forever green of Perfect Pearls.  It really gives it a rustic look.
The flower cut-outs have been "popped" to give depth.  The pink butterfly was done with a touch of clear glitter glue. 





I am pleased how this turned out. ;)

Butterfly Garden Card

Good Morning!    I decided to stay up a little while longer to finish up working on a card.    I couldn't decide, at first, what colors I wanted to use... decisions - decisions!    So I decided on a color I don't normally gravitate to... purple... or in this case a soft violet with a deeper purple added as a "pathway" for the butterflies.     I just happened to have a delicate flowered paper to give a garden feel.     I really like the peaceful feeling this design seems to have.      I mainly wanted the butterflies to be white with just a touch of pink to their wings. 

I'm not sure why this seems to look crooked...  it could be the way I held the camera.  ;)


This card chases away those very cold temperatures we've had lately.
And reminds us all of warmer weather to come... I know,  it will be a while! 😃

Thanks so much for your visit.  ♥
