The First Day of Spring 2018

                            Happy 1st Day of Spring!             
Today we got to  40 or so. At least we didn't have snow like some states! LOL  Yesterday I was out on the back porch with a blanket. It was great to be in the sun and feel it's heat and warmth.  I feel just like the cats sitting in the sun. You get warm and groggy and just want to take a nap.
I was reminded by this today that we are in a constant battle of the spirit world. It's all around us. We need to pray for God's guidance and help each day.
Trusting in God for many things going on in our lives right now. Resting on God's plan for our lives.
I've told my kids from when they were school age, to look for needs they could fill. Even as kids, they could fill needs of others.  I recently heard Sarah say she remembered this and told me something she did.
I try to do little things like leave a restroom better than I found it. No one sees but God knows what we do for Him. For me the idea is to do for others without making it obvious if possible.
Here's Phoebe today. Tim got new cat scratchers and added catnip as instructed. Both cats were crazy, silly eating the catnip and rolling on this and scratching their claws. Then Phoebe went to sleep on it.

Here's a card I made for the clean and simple challenge on SCS. We were to make something that made us happy. I love yellow roses tinged with pink.  This is an Our Daily Bread Designs stamp set. I wanted a set with sayings about tea. I have friends that drink tea.
This card was made for the Color Challenge on SCS. The colors were Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron and Marina Mist. I colored this with Copic markers then added yellow wink of stella to the flower center. I decorated the envelope as well.
The first pink flower card was made by Carlene who was the featured stamper this week on SCS. I used her card for inspiration for mine. I changed the colors, the layout and used dry embossing and washi tape instead of ribbon and a raised sentiment.
The flower was stamped with versamark then heat embossed with white embossing powder. I colored the flower using ink from the lids of ink pads. I added the washi tape border and added dry embossing using the Anna Griffen Rosa embossing folder.

Verse of the Day:Deuteronomy 31:6

Check out this song by Newsboys called, Restart.
We've all gotten a restart when we accepted Christ. We became a new person in Christ. I like the beat of this and the words. Give it a listen.

Blessing of the day: We got more pictures off the walls to keep the rooms from looking too busy when we show the house in May. I like working ahead so we're not stressed.
Tim's been making dinner for us. I really like that a lot. I don't seem to have an interest in planning or making dinner.

Thanks for stopping by.
