The Digi Bells Little Mama

A big warm welcome and huge hug to all of you, my dear sweet friends I'd like to thank you sooooo very much for your comments and emails. You've been so encouraging and uplifting during this very difficult time :) My journey of forgiveness continues and I must remain hopeful that someday all will be better than before!!!

Counseling week four... not sure how I feel actually. Don't get me wrong, there were some very good things that came out during our session. What I've yet to tell you is that my hubby and I are experiencing trouble. For now, I'll leave it at that... Last week was still about me and my ANGER!!! This week, I feel that forgiveness is quite possible, but still pondering on how God is going to take away the pain. Not that He can't - He's just not doing it as quickly as I'd like LOL!!!

Anyway... crafting has been a little more difficult this past month. I'm hoping that I can pour out my feelings in an art journal at some point. Until then, I like creating pretty things

This is Little Mama from Elisabeth Bell's Digital Collection HERE.

She's colored with copics and ooops... once again I forgot to write them down :(

I was sooooo excited about this banner! I know you crafters will totally understand what I'm talking about :) I've seen something similar all over your gorgeous cards and I decided to try and create my own using Silhouette Designer's Edition. What do you think??? I even created a perforated edge haha.

I've  used a number of dies on this card. The image is die cut with Spellbinders Floral Ovals. The Elegant Scrollwork is a Memory Box die and the Picket Fence is from poppystamps.

The single pearls are Ice White Pearl Pen HERE.

I forgot I had this pretty pink/white polka dot ribbon from Michael's. I'll certainly be using this more often :) I added the string of pearls to imitate the pearls in the image... My favorites are lace and pearls and I just don't use them often enough!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:
Outlawz - Anything Goes (optional Christmas Twist) 
Sister Act - Anything Goes
Simon Says - Anything Goes
Pattie's Creations - Anything Goes

*** My current giveaway is HERE ***

I hope you are having a wonderful Friday I'm looking forward to getting lots of crafting in this weekend :)

Lots and lots heartfelt love to you

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul ~

Wow! This card is so cute! I love the banner too!

I went through "trouble" with my hubby about..1996..I think we had been married for 19 years then. We will celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary this fall. We went through two years of marriage counseling. 1 Jn 2:9 (Wey) Any one who professes to be in the light and yet hates his brother is still in darkness.
