Yah Baby......


So it was to be a baby card today......love baby cards, and I naturally gravitate toward baby GIRL cards.....(any wonder with SEVEN grand daughters??) Anyway- I made this with that great new embossing folder in the SU mini catalog.....Love.it!! The stamp set, Teddies and Trains, some watercolor cardstock, some markers and blender pens, some Pretty in Pink dp, some of my favorite ribbon some faux stitching and pearls.....pretty easy peasy!! Thanks to all of you for your comments and messages to tell me you are inspired by my blog. If you are ever so moved, I am always thrilled to receive orders and you can click on my SU website right on this blog and it will take you directly to where you can order thru me. YIPPEE, if you place an order, and ask me - I will send you a card....how's that??? Well our kids are gone, on their trek to the islands in the Indian Ocean for 3,1/2 years. I am just now beginning to look human again.....my eyes were so swollen I could hardly open them....but you know what? Time heals all wounds....and as the days unfold the Lord gives perfect peace that they are right where they are supposed to be, and all is well with my soul!! :) A scripture I keep coming back to is actually a song I used to sing - He gave me, beauty for ashes, the oil of JOY for mourning, the garment of praise, for the spirit of heaviness, that we might be trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that HE might be glorified. So I praise HIM, for all HE has done for me, and the spirit of heaviness goes away and is replaced by HIS perfect peace, and JOY in my heart. Until next time.......Karen
