The As You See It challenge this week was to create a card showing what brings you holiday joy. The first thing I thought of was family but I was struggling with stamps to create a card that represented that so.....Stampin Up's Beachy Little Christmas came to mind!!! I love seashells instead of snowflakes, I love taking the boat out when our kids comes to visit from Chicago and NewYork, I love sitting in a beach chair watching the sunset instead of sitting inside in front of a fireplace. Yep...a beachy Christmas brings me joy!! 3 Gifts Challenge:(using Ann Voskamp's 1000 gifts daily prompts) 3 gifts frosted...Sugar cookies!! My hair--I get asked all the time "who colors your hair? the frosting is perfection"--Natural perfection from my Maker!! Cupcakes made by my dear friend Donna--no one does them quite like her!! Say a prayer for her today if you get a moment...she is half way through her chemotherapy for breast cancer and this last treatment really took a lot out of her!! She could use a super natural boost about now!!
I am married to a wonderful man and we have 2 children--a son who lives in Long Island, NY and a daughter who lives in Chicago. We live in Florida, which feels so very far away from our kids especially since we have a grand-daughter and a second grandchild on the way!! For over 20 years I was a Stampin Up Demonstrator, but in 2021 I let go of my demonstratorship. I still love scrapbooking & creating cards and have enough Stampin Up products to last me till eternity...so I will keep on creating!! Proud to be a daughter of the Most High God--who was and is and is to come!!
