Lots Done Today

Today started out nicely, I slept in. Each time I got up I had a bad headache, so I'd try to go back to sleep. Finally I got up when I heard Tim bringing groceries in. I'm supposed to do the shopping one more week, but he did it for me. I'm lucky, I know. I told him he could sit down with his coffee and I'd unpack and put things away. It was the least I could do right? LOL

 I finished making the extra cards that were left over from my card night Friday. I got them put with an envelope and into a card sleeve and filed in my card boxes. What a great feeling. I also emptied my two shelf cabinet in my craft room, and got it all organized so I can find things now! I took the retired stamps to the basement along with empty stamp cases and got them put where they belong. During 2 tv shows tonight I got pictures sorted and things organized in my cupboards in the basement. I went through pictures and got rid of those that really weren't needed for a scrapbook or memory box. It feels so good to accomplish things that have been bugging me ya know?

 Ben has his best friend over tonight. He's a great friend who will be going back to college early in Sept. Ben has a job interview at our church to help with the technology team. Two of his friends who have been doing it are off to college so Ben's name was brought up. I just pray that whatever God wants for Ben is evident to him. I was busy making cards. Here are a couple.

Here's my card in honor of Marie Alice for Queen For the Day. I chose this card of hers to CASE.  I used the labels 17 die cut for her image page. Then I used rose red paper and some paper a friend, Jan gave me. She got it at Michaels. I used pink ribbon. Love this image and it was colored with Copics.

Congrats Maureen on being the featured stamper! Here's the card I chose in your gallery to CASE.;ppuser=120847
I used versamark and black embossing powder then colored with SU markers and copics. I used the Mr. and Mrs. stamp which is layered with black behind it.

Saw this on FB and really liked it.
I love this since it doesn't say it HAS to be family.  I've made some wonderful friends along the way.
One week from tomorrow I start back to work.  I can hear Hope laughing and carrying on all the way from Pittsburgh! 
Thanks for stopping by.

Blessing of the day: This evening's church service was a question/answer session.  My question was read and I was able to ask our pastor another question after the service.  He made me feel like I was doing the right thing.  Thank you God.
Thanks for stopping by,

I do love those sweet PTI images. What a darling card. And the floral card is beautiful. Love that you embossed the image and then colored it in. That's always so striking.
