21 Years...

I love making cards and working with paper... I love choosing the right colors, a layout, what embellishments to use, what technique to use to make the card, and what purpose the card will have when I am done with it.

Wow! That's how God is with us. He creates us in His image. He chooses the right color, the perfect layout of our lives, the embellishments that makes us unique. He also knows the purpose that each of us has.

One of the best thing about making a handmade card is that the creator can personalize the card however he/she chooses.

My youngest turns 21 in a few days. (Sooooo hard to beleive). I don't tell him often enough but I am so gosh darn proud of that man. I didn't know, back when I was 24, why I got pregnant 8 months after having my second child... but now I know. God gave me the best "card" ever in the birth of my third son. I wish he were here and not half a world away right now so I could give him a big huge hug.

In my scrapbook room the other day... I was able to get three cards done. The first one was for my son. The second I will probably send to my mother-in-law and the third one is my hubby's Father Day card. What an amazing man he is... he has and always will be a great Father to his kids.

I love the military moose. I tried to make it look like the moose was stepping over the threshold of turning 21... into the life of being a full-fledged adult.

I am sending this one to my mother-in-law. I don't write her as often as I should. I used my Stampin Up owl stamp and punch for this card. I made a boo-boo with the pearl ink for the dot of the i... but I fixed it. Isn't it great that God doesn't make mistakes?

Last but not least... I made an L-shaped card from my Card Makers Kit from Annies Attic. These are acutally quite fun.

Well...thats all. If you like any of these cards let me know and I can make a kit for you. Have fun making cards...
