Life IS Good

I went back to my roots while making this card last night...it is all Stampin' Up! products. Woohoo for me! This is a set called She's All That. It will be coming out March 1st in the Occasions Mini catalog and I love it...go figure! I think it has the essence of why I love the Bella's...simple yet fun. I also used new paper coming out in that mini catalog called Summer Picnic. While I think the paper is designed to go with a different set I do believe that the "life is like a bowl full of cherry's" theme of the paper goes with the "life is good" theme. Yes? The colors in this paper are Old Olive, Real Red, and Bashful Blue. I added some ribbon and a couple of brads and waalah...Life is Good!

Did you know that if you have money in your pocket you have more money than something like 90% of the world? We are very blessed here in the US so just remember when you start feeling down that having a roof over your head, food on your table, and clothes on your back is WAY more than what most of the rest of the world has. Want to help out those less fortunate than you? Go see what World Vision has to say HERE. You can, quite literally, change a child's life including their life span by donating to World Vision. Child Sponsorship is one of the best things I have ever done. Please let me know if you have any questions about it at all!

Just want you to know that tomorrow there will be no card/artwork for you. Tomorrow is Jon 16th birthday so I will post a little about him. It is also the 10th anniversary of the day my mom went to be with Jesus so I will be posting the memorial that I'm putting in my hometown paper tomorrow.

I wish for you today to take some time to see all the blessings that you have in your life!

Hi Lorie: Wonderful card. Your son is turning 16 congrats to him and I will think of you tomorrow as you reflect on your mom's passing to Jesus. My mom too is up in heaven and so is my father. My heart has never been the same but I know they are happy. May God bless you and your family always. I count my blessings by three, Andrew, Justyn and Rebecca. You have many blessings too. God works in wonderful ways to help us get through our pain.
I will check in tomorrow.
P.S. it has been fun RAKing with you too. I will take time to make the Hanna card this weekend.
All the best, Bela
