Lily Pad Cards and Lawn Fawn Fun

(So sorry I'm a bit late with posting this....stayed up all night to watch the Royal Wedding!)

I have been busy writing blog posts and making cards...unfortunately not for my own blog. It's the case of the cobblers kids going without shoes. But I am enjoying all the challenges my new job brings.
I got together with Ivy and Kelly Marie a couple weeks ago to make cards....75 of them. We had a great great in fact that despite having my camera with me I failed to take even one photo of our assembly line card extravaganza. It was a Lawn Fawn day and I gotta tell ya, I love those happy stamps!

I made this card for my sweet daughter-in-love to send to a case you hadn't heard she is expecting a little boy around the end of August. I'm really starting to warm up to the idea of being a grandma.

~ Romans 12:1-2 ~
And so, dear brothers and sisters, 
I plead with you to give your bodies to God 
because of all He has done for you.
Let them be a living and holy sacrifice -
the kind He will find acceptable.
This is truly the way to worship Him.
Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world,
but let God transform you into a new person
by changing the way you think.
Then you will learn to know God's will for you,
which is good and pleasing and perfect.
