Yesterday I had a big blog typed out... Yesterday I had the blahs and the eeyores horrible all day long! Abby and I had a rough day together - one that made me feel the the most awful mommy ever! Snuggling up to her last night made it better though! Thank GOD today was a new day and HE has made things better!

Here is my submission for this weeks challenge at 2 Sketches... I did NOT intend on this being a Christmas card, but...I guess you can see what it turned out to be! Love that cuttlebug folder Swiss dots and some Maya Road chipboard covered in CTMH ink! The bling, why that would be the after Valentine's Day special from Wal-Mart a couple of years back and the stamp is from my favorite - PaperTreyInk! And yes - that is a piece from my Willow Tree Nativity helping the card stand up!

Five things I am Thankful For:
GOD - oh boy - I could go on about my LORD all day! He is soo good!
FAMILY - my world revolves around my husband, little girl, and my parents!
Christian Family - there is nothing like a good brother or sister in the Lord to rejoice with you and help you pray, or be there in more difficult times too
HOME - nice warm home in this cold season
WORK - in tough econnomic times it is a blessing to have a job!


God Bless You,
