Life’s Roller Coaster

I know I have been a bit absent as of late.  It’s been a bit hectic in my world!  Above it all, I continue to be amazed at the way God works in the lives of those around me.  He is in control.  He has a plan.  I just sit back and watch Him work.  He is AWE-some!

A dear close friend and co-worker had a baby this weekend.  The baby was about a week late in vacating the premises.  Things happened during birth – not tragic, but concerning things.  Ended up in nursery on monitors.  Doctors felt best to transport her to bigger hospital a few hours away.  Just precautionary.  Mom was heartbroken.  By the time the parents arrived there, baby was off monitors, doing great.  Less than 12 hours there – she is off oxygen and IV.  If no infection, she’ll get to come home in the next couple days.  God’s is control of this – it’s easy to see.

What a difference a few hours make.  Even though you can’t see her face, you can tell how she feels in the different pictures!  I can tell she has a huge smile on her face in that second photo – can’t you!! Well, wouldn’t you just be beaming if you got to hold you baby for the first time ever – and she is nearly two days old!?!

So, how does this relate back to cards and Stampin’ Up?

Well, I had a meeting last night with my Stampin’ friends.  We did a Spring time Swap.  My I loved my swap card so much I decided that I needed to make an extra and give to my friend whose strength has just amazed me through such a difficult time!

So, here is a sneak peak at some of the items coming out in the new catalog on June 1st… because this card uses one of the new Hostess Sets – Feathery Friends.  It’s perfect to color using your Stampin Write Markers or Watercolor Pencils.  And, check out the vibrant green.  It’s one of the new In Colors 2017-2019 called Lucky Limeade.  Actually – all the colors you see on the card are the new In Colors!  It’s so bright and cheery!  I really do think that this card will make my dear friend smile!  After all, that’s why we make cards, right!  To brighten up someone’s day!


Want to get your hands on the new catalog?  Drop me an email and I will get on off in the mail to you…
