TAG, YOU'RE IT!!

The SUO challenge this week is TAGS…..I had one of those weeks this week…..just one where I didn't get up to my stamp room at all.  The color challenge came out, and it was exactly the colors of a card I made a while ago and had not used for anything yet…..and I even love it!! Then Saturday, I happened to get up and for some unknown reason, I felt moved to put my coworkers little Christmas gifts together, and make tags and personalize their bags, and I won't be even giving them to them until Christmas week….but I just felt like getting it done so I did.  Then I remembered it was the SUO challenge week, and I was like OH, NO, what is the theme? Cuz I was so busy…just didn't know when I would have a chance to take my time and CREATE…..so low and behold, it was TAGS, and I had just finished making 5 little bags like this one and decorating with a TAG!!!!  I love when God knows you are stretched to the limit and then shows you in a way like that that HE understands and HE has your back. :) Don't you?  My friend Lillian who I told you all about last time has gone straight into the arms of Jesus.  I cried for a few days, but not for her, for me.  I know Lillian is walking with Jesus, and I know she is happy and I know the angels are rejoicing over this saint who came home…..but us here, we are crying at the loss of a precious friend and mother, grandmother, etc. etc.  Oh the blessed hope that we will one day meet again, and I hope my mansion is on the same street with Lillians!! Until next time…..Karen

SO sorry to hear about Lillian. She must have passed about the same time as my Father. IT is hard to now I can not stop and chat or get a hug or ask his advice when ever I want. He was a WONDERFUL Father as I know Lillian was a Friend. Hugs....

It seems that everyone has challenges - challenge here and challenge there. It's a challenge just to keep up!
Your Christmas gift bag is fantastic - so much fun to receive.
