Elzybells Have Arrived

Arghh, ye matey's! LOL! Not sure what that is all about? Check my post below!

I have seen these cute, cute, cute images just about everywhere around the Internet. I finally decided I needed a couple and this is the result of my first try with Moon Girl. I've linked you up to my SCS gallery so that you can see what I used to make this card. Also, this layout is from SCS's sketch challenge #165. If you are ever in need of a sketch just go to the sketch challenge forum at SCS and you will be all set to go. There is even a post that lists all the previous sketches and the sample card that goes with it. Anyway, I have a person in mind for this card so it will probably be going out in the mail soon!

<----------- Did you see the new addition on the left hand side? It is a link to World Vision's sponsorship information. Please feel free to go and peruse that site and if you feel that you'd like to sponsor a child please let me know first so that I can give you a special code to use. (If it isn't there yet...it will be shortly!) May I challenge you today? While you are out and about do something nice for someone else...pay for the coffee of the person behind you, open the door for someone, carry an elderly person's bags for them, just go out of your way to do something good for someone today. If you report it back here maybe I'll have a drawing for a little Glory from Lorie. You have the whole weekend to do this little act of kindness and really, you can post on here once a day 'til Monday. I'll post the winner on Monday morning! Now GO have fun and make someones day!

Love it--I want those stamps!!!! I didn't spend money on a person today, but when I was in the grocery store, the produce manager was out restocking. His produce always looks so neat and arranged and fresh, so I told him that he has the best produce stand in town! He was thoroughly pleased and had the biggest grin on his face. Bet he was never told that before. I hold that smile in my heart.

I'm glad to see you're involved in sponsoring children.

Josh and I sponsor two children thru Compassion International. We've done it for 2 1/2 years now, and have a boy Corbin's age and a girl Vivian's age. They write to us all the time... it is such a blessing!

Love the stamp set. How on earth do you keep up with all of your stuff??? You're so lucky!!

I work at the Cemetery. I met with a family that was making arrangements for there Mom/Grandmother. There were two younger (pre-teen) girls that wanted to help with the decision making. They were having a real tough time. I started talking with them and telling them stories about my Grandmother. It seemed to help them and then they started talking to me about their Grandmother. We were all crying and laughing. I like to think that I made their experience more pleasurable (if that can be possible in this situation). Thanks for your blog. I check it daily. Cheryl B

Cute card! Love those elzybells :) I did do something nice this weekend. I was at work after hours and I'm not suppose to answer the door for anyone without them calling first, well, I decided to risk it and I had two opportunities to help 2 families out with bags of food that really needed it. If I had ignored the knocking, they wouldn't have gotten help because all the other places were closed as well. :) feels a little silly telling nice things on myself--LOL!! I will be more aware tomorrow and see what God puts in my path. Thanks Lorie!

I made sure I told the nursery workers at church how much I appreciated their commitment to the kids. And I treated 2 friends to movie tickets over the weekend. It is so fun to bless others like that. Thanks for the challenge.
