Falling for you

I am so ready for Fall!!!  Here is this weeks digi stamp from Delightful Inspiration.  It is a cute one. I love pumpkins and anything you can make with them.  The Double Delight Challenge is...use this digi and keep it CAS (Clean And Simple)... and when I say that I mean make a card in less than 1 hour and no fussy cutting, distressing, embellishments etc.  

I used one printed paper, a ribbon with a no fuss knot, a brown marker for the sentiment.  I started to get out the chalks and stamp but I remembered  CAS- clean and simple.  I was able to complete this card in 5 min.  I really like this challenge, usually I'm stressin', lol.

One Minute Sermon!

Thought this is so cool!  I just had to share. Don't think it could be said any better :)

What do you think?

Trendy Award

I was blessed today by Sheila from She's a Sassy Lady.  She "paid if forward" and gave me this nice award.
I am a relatively new blogger in this sea of scrapbooking inspiration.  I enjoy blogging and posting what I make but I really enjoy looking at all the wonderful blogs like She's a Sassy Lady.

Pass this on to 10 other blogs
From Sheila: I am going to add another rule because the whole purpose of these blog awards is to award to someone but then to learn a little more about them..... soooo. I will start and expect you to:
Give two reasons why you started blogging and then tell me why you continued.
My two reasons.

1. To creatively share my favorite pictures during special times.
2. I took a little break ( 5yrs or so) but when I had my children, I started back up again.  I've done 12 scrapbooks for me and about 10 for gifts.  I love scrapping about my family.
 I continue because I am HOOKED on scrapbooking and now cards and all other kinds of cool paper c…
