Birthday Inspiration

I received a birthday card that inspired me to stamp this card. I think this is a great card for anyone... young, old, male, female... What do you think?

Long Card

I found some long envelopes and thought I would try to make a card to fit the envelope. I actually had a great time making this card. It just fit perfectly with what I wanted to use. I had about six 12x12 pages of this background paper and I pulled out two stamp sets that I had never used before. I am always in need of some guy cards so that is what I focused on this time.
I really like how this card turned out and I'll be making more of this size soon.

Turning 30

Back on July 4th I turned the BIG 30. I am not struggling with the fact that I turned "30" for to me it is just a number. However, I've been thinking alot of what I have done with my life in the last 30 years. I have been struggling with the thought that I haven't accomplished much of anything for the Lord. So many times I could have been a better witness, a stronger Christian, a brighter light in this dark world.

My prayer for my next thirty years is that I be willing, ready and available for God to use me in a mighty way for His glory.

2 Timothy 2:21
If a man cleanses himself from the latter, he will be an instrument for noble purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.

Cow Appreciation Day

What would you do for a free meal at Chick-Fil-A?
Sorry about the poor quality...it's a scan of a Polaroid picture taken at Chick-Fil-A.

Well today is Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-Fil-A. If you dress up as a cow you get a free combo meal.

When I first heard about this I thought "I would never do such a thing" ...well 20 minutes before Mike was going to take his lunch today we decided to go to Chick-Fil-A... so I printed some "Eat Mor Chikin" signs and I cut out some black spots and pinned them on our shirts.

Mike was so embarrassed at the beginning but by the end of our lunch he was really getting into character. Some boys walked past us and Mike started mooing. It was really funny but I guess you had to be there.

Are you getting your free meal today?

Goodwill Finds

My wonderful good friend Rebecca came and picked me up today. We went to lunch and then Goodwill. I decided I could really use a few more church clothes so off I went to search through the rows and rows of clothes. God was good to me and blessed me with a beautiful outfit for church. I ended up with 3 shirts and 1 skirt. The skirt is brand new still has the tags on it. The clearance price tag on it from the original store was $63.99 and I got it for $4. How can you pass up a deal like that.

Here is my new church outfit... I just love it. Thanks Rebecca!
