Time for some R & R

Hi all....Wasn't the Hero Arts Hostess Blog Hop a blast? Oh golly, my pulse is just starting to return to normal after taking in all those gorgeous cards and projects. I'm so proud of all of my Hostess buddies and I'm so happy to among this wonderful group of women. Thank you to Hero Arts for being so generous and for providing us all with wonderful stamp designs and quality products, you are the best!

So anyhoo, I'm going to be taking a little break from blogging between now and CHA.  I'll be leaving things in the capable hands (paws) of Tia the attack Chihuahua, along with her large and quite earnest sidekick Digby....oh and they will be supervised by the former Marine.

In the meantime here's a couple of cards to share.....
I just love the old-time-y look of the Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 paper with the fabulous antique bicycle stamp.

And here is a Valentine/Thank you card...just something a little different....

~ Joshua 1:9 ~
"Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, 
for the Lord your God is with you wherever go."
I'm sending love, prayers and lots of warm thoughts to all my friends who may be experiencing some difficult weather situations. Just wanted to remind you that God is with you in whatever circumstances you might find yourself.
