WOW!  2016....I never imagined, did you?!?  I was convinced, by whom I don't know, that the world was going to end in 2000.  So glad that it didn't although hanging with Jesus in heaven I'm sure will be very cool, for lack of a better word!

Anyway, a quick post as we are leaving for a party that is just 10 minutes away with some college friends and their families!  I haven't scrapped in months but I like what I've created!  

My inspiration came from Soul Scrappers challenge blog.  You are to use the lyrics or title or a few words from Guns & Roses song "Sweet Child O' Mine"...a favorite of mine back in the day (wow that made me sound old!).  My title "her face" are words from the song.

And the song lyrics:


"Sweet Child O' Mine"
She's got a smile that it seems to me
Reminds me of childhood memories
Where everything
Was as fresh as the bright blue sky

Now and then when I see her face
She takes me away to that special place
And if I stared too long
I'd probably break down and cry

Sweet child o' mine
Sweet love of mine

She's got eyes of the bluest skies
As if they thought of rain
I'd hate to look into those eyes
And see an ounce of pain

Her hair reminds me of a warm safe place
Where as a child I'd hide
And pray for the thunder and the rain
To quietly pass me by

Sweet child o' mine
Sweet love of mine

Where do we go?
Where do we go now?
Where do we go?
Sweet child o' mine
Thanks for stopping by!!  Be safe with family and friends as you bring in the new year.  Wishing you God's blessings in 2016!

Merry Christmas!!

Hello my scrappy friends!  My goodness, I haven't posted in a long time.  I haven't created anything in a while except for some Christmas cards.  My poor grandma who just turned 97 this past Wednesday didn't even get a birthday card!  Shame on me!  I miss creating but I've been working a full time job and it's just kicking my butt.  It may be coming to an end soon...I'm not sure if it should or not.  It's a heavy decision that has been weighing on me and soon I need to make a decision.    When I'm not working or wrapping Christmas gifts, I'm praying for guidance!

Ok, enough of my problems!  Here is an example of the Christmas cards I sent out this year.  I'm entering this into the blog Fun Cut Creations by Jen.  Her challenge for the month of December is to use the theme of Christmas using Stampin' Up products!  I used the stamp/thinlet set from SU!  called Wondrous Wreath.  It appeared in the catalog last year and I'm just using it this was difficult for me to line up the stamps and thinlets.  Not sure why!

A pretty simple card, love the stamped sentiment from CTMH set Glory to God that I've had for a few years.

Thanks for stopping by!  This challenge from Fun Cut Creations by Jen runs until the end of the month.  Give it a try!

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!  Thank you for taking some time out of your day to take a peek at my creations.
