THINGS I LOVE...

One of these days, when I have some free time, I'm going to make a list of all the THINGS I LOVE!  Free time will likely be on the list.  But for now, that assignment is on the back burner, because I don't have enough free time to make the list.  When I do have time, I just might consider putting "popcorn" on the list... Well, on second thought, I don't love popcorn that much...

PC1 

The (punched paper) popcorn, has yellow sponged ink edges, but doesn't show up as much as I intended.  So just try to imagine lots of butter on each kernel.  (Butter!  I might include that on my list!)

Love1 

In the meantime, I love that it's Friday - and a Holiday Weekend too!!!

JUST BELIEVE...

As I sit here posting this new card to my blog, my primary focus is on the evening news and thoughts of all the families who have suffered loss from the tornadoes in our land.  As a Christian, I look at the greeting on this card, and realize that it holds a deeper meaning than I first understood... Some things actually DO have to be believed to be seen... 

Just Believe1 

I do believe...

Just Believe2 

And because of that, I clearly know...

Just Believe3 
 

...about the importance and the power of prayer!

LIVING NEAR THE COFFEE MECCA...

I live less than two hours away from Seattle, Washington, the Starbuck Coffee Mecca - and after being there recently, sitting along the waterfront and sipping on a grande non-fat latte, was inspired to make this card...

Coffee1

I always end up adding a little extra cream to my coffee

and ink to my papers...

SOMEWHERE IN DISNEYLAND...

While in Disneyland last week, we saw the most beautiful lanterns and I was inspired to make some of my own when we returned home...

Lanterns1 
They were delicate and colorful...

Lanterns2 

...in an Asian setting...

Lanterns3 

But for the life of me, I can't remember where!

JUST SOMEWHERE IN DISNEYLAND!

Do you know where that somewhere is???
