Happy Me!

Today I am very happy! Up very early, after going to be very late, snow in the forecast (I strongly dislike snow)...but still VERY happy! You see, this week I had what I consider to be a WONDERFUL apt at my hematologist! Cleared for another 6 mos and I am praising God!
I hope to be back to our nice, warm home before the snowfall begins...hopefully we will not lose power this time and I will be able to fit in a whole lot of paper-crafting with a little bit of homework. Thankfully the housework got done last night...
This little number today follows three challenges! First - albeit very basic, is the square you see! Cindy's challenge over at Christian Paper Crafts today for Fun on Friday is all about die cutting machines. I really wanted to play along, but this card simply needed a square! I guess that goes to show you that even the simplest of functions can be done on the good ole' Cricut! Next is the ribbon! When I saw that the challenge over at Die Cuts R Us this week was to use ribbon, that had me hooked! With a little button and some jute - well, that's right up my ally (and yes, it was hard for me to NOT add lace in there somewhere!)! Lastly, this wonderful sketch is from none other than 2Sketches4You! The cardstock is Gina K, and the patterened paper is from the Blush line by Basic Grey. Wal-Mart is responsible for the silk ribbon, button and sentiment (Heart Prints Sentiments) are from PaperTrey Ink! Oh, and I used the Victoria folder to emboss my square on my cuttlebug!
Just since it's Friday, here is a little sneak peak at something special I am working on for Valentine's Day! I'll tell you more about this project NEXT Friday - which give you plenty of time to try it for Valentine's, too!
Have a wonderful weekend & God's Blessings to You,
