Just Sharing...

I have been slack in my posting... it is not because I don't have a grateFUL HEART, but because I have let myself be too busy. Oh, I also have been practicing the art of procrastination too! Not good!!!

I have some news to share... I am now a Stampin' Up demonstrator... I signed up under my sister, Renee Ondrajka. Not sure where I will go with this as a business... time will tell.  I luv Stampin' Up products and if I can "play" and it is actually considered work... how great is that!?

Also, my hubby has gotten a new job. He has been hired by the Helena Chemical Co. working out of the branch in Shelby, MI. It is 25 miles from where we want to move (when our house sells)... it is just over a 100 miles from where we live now.  The way this job unfolded was definitely a God thing... and just another step on the path He has for us.  We are so very grateFUL for this opportunity!

We were gone on vacation last week to Big Cedar near Branson, MO.  We had an incredible time! When I got home my SU kit was waiting for me, so finally yesterday I dove into that box.  I made a quick little card for a friend to show her the new In-Colors.

Of course I had to get the Elegant Butterfly punch, along with the Papillon Potpourri stamp set. I used the Gumball Green CS, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Midnight Muse, and Summer Starfruit inks. I also used a page from the DS Festival of Prints Stack with a little Bakers Twine and Apothecary Framelits. I know it is really simple, but I just had to get my hands into my new stash!

Okay, last thing for today are verses that I wanted to share:

"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
God allows unpleasant things in our lives... not to see how much we can take, but to see how quick we will turn it all over to Him! He wants us to need Him more than anything else! He is my peace... He is my comfort!
with a grateFUL HEART, carin
