Flannel and Fleece

Greeting Everybody!  It is a GREAT DAY!  I know that it has been a really long time since I blogged!  Sorry about that....had to get a few things straight. I had to consult with my heavenly father about a some things and be sure that I was listening to HIM.  So with all that being said... my blog will be different than before.  I want to be a blessing to others...not just to my family but my friends, strangers and fellow crafters too! 
I will be sharing more than just cards..... crafts, canvas, sewing, inspiration & tutorials.  I think I am becoming like my dad and grandfather as they say "A jack of all trade master of none!!! LOL
So, lets get crafty

Flannel and Fleece
I have made several of these little cuties in the past weeks and realized that I never posted one.  This is a baby blanket for my hair stylist.  One day I was sitting under the hair dryer closing up a cutie patootie of a little girls blanket and she said  oooohh I want a boy blanket and as the story led to another and another.  I also make the burp cloths to match.  So Enjoy and go do great things!

M.A.G. Challenge by the Page #38

 Follow your Heart it knows the way

Greetings Scrappers!  Let me say this was a HUGE jump for me.  I hardly ever use my cricut!  I always had problems with it cutting...I change the needle and still had problems so I knew it was just something that was not for me.  Then tonight I decided to get another set of needles and low and behold !! It cuts...LOL...I said ok ...I'll give this a run!  So here you are!  Thanks to a dear friend that invited me to check out the blog page... I decided to take the challenge since I had this cartridge!  It's not so bad after all!!
Hope you enjoy my country scene with a city glow!

Great Strength Comes from Faith in God

Greetings- Recently I have had several friends to share with me the trial and tribulations that they are experiencing.  I began to pray and pray, I asked the Lord to send peace and comfort to each of them.  I asked the Lord to allow them to feel His presence and remind them of His word that He would never leave them nor forsake them.  As I sit there loving on the Lord he reminded me that Great Strength Comes from Faith in God!  So I began to pray for "Increased FAITH"  Wow!!  how awesome is He!

Comfort in God's Word

I pray you would find comfort in God’s living word.

When you are lonely or fearful…Call Psalm 23
When you grow bitter or critical…Call 1 Corinthians 13
For Paul’s secret of happiness…Call Colossians 3:12-17
When you feel down and out…Call Romans 8:31-39
When you want rest and peace…Call Matthew 11:25-30
When the world seems bigger than God…Call Psalm 90
When you want Christian assurance…Call Romans 8:1-30
When you leave home for labor or travel…Call Psalm 121
When you prayers grow narrow and selfish…Call Psalm 67
For a great invitation and opportunity…Call Isaiah 55
When you want courage for a task…Call Joshua 1
How to get along with fellow men…Call Romans 12
When you think of investments and returns…Call Mark 10
If you are depressed…Call Psalm 27
If your pocketbook is empty…Call Psalm 37
If you are losing your confidence in people…Call 1 Corinthians 13
If people seem unkind…Call John 15
If you are discouraged about your work…Call Psalm 126

Flower Pin With Jewel

Red Flower Pin w/Jewel

Welcome, Welcome... today I decided to try something new.  I love paper and everything that has to do with paper crafting!!   I have a secret though...I really like fabric, ribbon and textiles too!!.  I was sitting down at the craft table and this piece of fabric was calling my name.  I recently read an article on fabric and flowers so I decided to put it to the test and here is what I ended up with.  I'm gonna wear it tomorrow.  After I perfect it  I may just sell these cuties at the craft show.  I'm gonna try different fabrics, jewels and colors.  Here are some additional uses:
1.  Embellishment for your scrapbook page or card ( without the pin back of course!)
2.  Barrett
3.  Headband Accessory
4.  T-shirt or Jacket pin
5.  Anything else you want it to be

Hope you enjoy! Now go and do great things...but keep it CAS  ...Clean & Simple

Thanks for Stopping by!!

This is the LYFE!!!

Greetings - this is the day the Lord has made....I will be glad in it!!! On it!!! through it!!! With it!!! you get it!! Right???  Well, anyhoo....  I wanted to share with you about life's simple pleasures!!  There are many things going on around us, so many challenges, so many things to get done.  We have school, band practice, performances, husbands, bills etc.  The only thing that keeps me sane is the Lord God Almighty! 

NOW on to the story.....We went out on the town with our friends Michael and LaKesha...and by the way we partied all night long at I-HOP drinking all their coffee and laughing..this was actually the second or third stop of the night!!!  My husband and I had not been out on a date and seen 2:30am in over 6 years!!! WOW!!

Well .. we left some very precious cargo at home.  Austyn (teenager) and our Schnauzer LYFE... Austyn called us every hour on the hour to see if we were ok and Lyfe his fearless companion was right by his side!!  Lyfe is the keeper of the house, the backup alarm system, the I got your back Austyn, if anything happens I will bite them on the butt!!! LOL......  They were awake when we got home saying "it's about time y'all come home, do y'all know what time it is"?  (Simple Pleasure)

(I took the opportunity to tell Austyn that this is how we would feel but double the worry if he was out late cause he is younger and not OLD ( had to throw that in to make a point) like us...he.. he..he..  Just to remember when that time comes to be responsible.)

The next morning this is what I looked down and saw!!!  This simple pleasure!!!

                              Lyfe either partied all night too or worked the late shift! LOL
