2014 Life Verse

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path. Proverbs 3:5-6

Hello again.  Thanks for stopping by.  I have one more card for y'all today.  Kierstynne was finally able to go back to school today and since she's homeschooled, I'm one tired Mama.  It's not as easy as everyone thinks to be a homeschool Mom.  It's just as much work as going outside my home.  

Kierstynne decided she wanted her hair cut today.  She's had long hair since she was a little girl and I couldn't believe that she wanted it shorter.  The wanted a wispy, angled cut.  Here's how it turned out:

I think she looks so much older than 9 now, but I really like it.  I think I did a pretty good job on it.  Yes, I went to beauty school.

OK..now that I have shown off my mini-me, on to the card.

I used the challenge from Cardabilities #91 Sketch to make this card.  I did change it up a bit because I didn't like all the elements on the same side.  I also followed the Craft Your Passion challenge which is #197 Face the Music.  You have to make a card based on a song.  I chose George Jones' Lovebug from 1965.  I am also entering this one into the Twisted Tuesday challenge this week.  #68 is to use Washi Tape and the twist: use something that starts with a "T", "A", "P", "E".  You only have to pick one letter, but after making my card, I realized that I had all four letter....T is for Tsukineko ink, A is for American Crafts Swirl Stamps, P is for Patterned Paper from the Paper Studio, and E is for Embossing using Spellbinders Dies.  I also used the Recycling challenge at Oldie but a Goodie by recycling the heart shaped brads and turning them into glue on embellishments, and the Created with Love #73 Winged Things challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  This is my last card for today and I will be back tomorrow with some more eye candy. Have a wonderful night and God bless y'all.

Your thought is excellent; the difficulty is one thing that not enough individuals are talking intelligently about. I am very joyful that I stumbled throughout this in my search for one thing regarding this.
