2sketches4you and other cards

Taking a break from tidying and sorting front room, Tom is on his way to pick up a 2nd hand sofa, and I've been shunting furniture to make space for it.

Went to a friends last night for a Pampered Chef party, it had also been her birthday in the week. I ad made her a bag and corsage from a couple of retro pink floral pillowcases. Sorry I completely forgot to take a pic! I'm on the lookout for some more, and am hoping to do a tutorial on it. Here is the card I made her using Laura's sketch on 2sketches4you.

Paper by Anna Griffin, punches by Martha Stewart.

These are a few cards I made the other evening, been playing with the large Martha Stewart butterfly punch, it's so pretty! The EK success flourish is so useful.

SALT - Daily

Wow, 2 weeks have really flown by!

We've had a lovely time in the snow, but quilt glad things are returning to normal now without it.

Tanis has set the theme on Salt this week, please have a look at what she has written, be inspired, then create your own piece, and then don't forget to tell us and we'll come and visit your blog to have a peek!

When Tanis set the theme, I knew I wanted to make some kind of decrated notebook. Something that would be used everyday. I searched for an appropriate verse and found this one from 1 Thessalonians 5, a perfect reminder of what we should be doing each day.

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

SALT - Faith Hope and Love

It was Stacy's turn to set the challenge and here is my response to it. When I read the passage she had given us, the words 'protects, trusts, hopes and perseveres' popped out at me. Such a wonderful series of words to describe the actions of love. It reminds me that love is 'not just a feeling' but an act of the will, a conscious decision to love. And one of the greatest reminders of what true love is can be found in Jesus' action, to go to his undeservered death so that we can have a relationship with God.

I was so glad to find the time to do thisone as I've been missing in action these last months. One of my resolutions is to make use of my diary and calendar. Not just remembering to put appointments in, but to write in jobs I need to do and deadlines. When I was at Uni and employed I used it so much more but lately got out of the habit. Even this last week I have found it useful, so will be holding on to this new habit!

Please have a look at the other work on the SALT blog.

Blwyddyn Newydd Dda!

Or Happy New Year to my English readers!

Thought I'd do a brief post...

We've had a lovely Christmas and New Year. Spending time with family and friends. As usual I have not had time to think about the future year too much, although I have been reflecting on the past one. 2009 brought many different thrills, not least the birth of my daughter Mae in October.

I have not thought of any specific resolutions I would like to make. I have ongoing personal development and growth to be getting on with in all areas of my life. And with God's help, wisdom and direction, I will continue to strive for HIS Glory.
