A Few Of My Favorite Things

So this entry isn't really about a specific craft.  This week I'm trying to focus on positivity, and so, to brighten my day, these are a few of my favorite things to reflect upon:
1) the satisfaction I feel in knowing that something I have made is truly enjoyed by the person receiving it.  Whether that be a card, a trinket box, or a food dish.
2) the fun of curling up on my couch with a blanket and all the lights off except for the Christmas tree.  so peaceful.
3) the peace that never ceases to amaze me while I'm singing in worship
4)I may not have what some consider a lot of friends, but I'm completely blessed with the friends that I do have.  Quality, not quantity.
5) Where I was in my life 3 years ago and where I am now.  What a difference.  Thank you God that I'm never going back there.

So Thankful!

I just love love love the French Foliage set from stampin up!  I debated for a while whether or not I was going to get it, but I'm so glad I finally did.  This is your standard A2 size card.  I just cut a piece of Crumb Cake card stock, colored the stamps with miscellaneous markers (not by SU) and randomly stamped the images.  Once I had the look i desired, I cut a strip of blue cardstock and ran it through my scalloped edge punch.  Simple and easy!  I have a ton of buttons so I just picked one out that I liked, ran some SU twine through it, and put it on the brown slab I had popped up on dimensionals.  The sentiment is from the SU Chit Chat Rub Ons.  The picture below is basically a copy of the image that I put on the inside of the card.  I feel like it definitely completes the look!
