Matthew 6:34 - Do not worry

Hello all,

Have you heard of Corrie Ten Boom? She's a remarkable woman who survived the Nazi death camps to be an inspiration to all Christ-followers.

One of my favorite quotes of hers:

Here's a card I created using a quote from a very important Book.  :)

Both quotes are reassuring to me when I feel the temptation to worry about things (especially those I can't control).

I hope they'll become reassuring to you as well!

Paper: Wild Wisteria, Boysenberry, Lush Lagoon, Cotton Candy, Ripe Raspberry (all MFT); Aqua Mist, Classic Kraft Patterned Paper, Vintage Cream, Rustic White (all PTI)

You Make My Life Magical

Hello all,

I apologize for being away for so long (although not even sure if anybody reads this blog to miss me! ;) )

School started this last Monday and I've been scrambling to keep my class above water along with all the assessments, Back-to-School Night, etc.

I took some "me" time today to make a card. Just one card, but it took some time. ;)

Here's a close-up to show off their sparkly torsos!
