Tuesday's Teacher & Sneak Peek #3

Hi there...sorry about the late post...getting ready for a workshop (hey Laura!) Here is my Bible verve for the day:

"And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there will be no more death, no more sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away." Revelation 21:4

So I really needed this verse after the day I had! LOL I actually had a great morning and early afternoon with the kids and really I'm just being whinny and complaining! They were great while I made dinner, but during and after bath I think they reached their breaking point...I might of pushed them a little hard today...LOL Anyways I Love what this verse tells us! I think that it's great knowing that all this will pass...just as anything else in our lives. It's all temporary! God WILL return one day and he will take us all to paradise where we won't have to worry about temper tantrums, refusing to potty train, wanting to be held all day long and throwing things at the walls!!! I just keep thinking of that in my head and really it all just fades away (God's promise and bed time sure are reassuring!) And then the still of the night comes and I look back and think that I didn't handle situations the way I should of, I was probably too harsh, or not stern enough...did I make a mistake, did I punish the wrong child? Am I showing how God loves me to my children? Man oh man, what a life we lead! I am so thankful that Jesus died on the cross for my sins because without His forgiveness I would be doomed forever!!! Thank you Lord Jesus that you have forgiven me and thank you for keeping your promise and returning to lead me and all those who love you home!

My prayer for you today is that you turn to God in your moment of need (whatever it might be, job loss, fighting with your spouse, injuries, pain, disease) and ask Him to come into you and help you, He is there, He just wants you to love Him a small portion of how much He loves you!

Sneak Peek #3

And now the moment you have all been waiting for! Here is another sneap peak...this sneak peek shows 2 cards...both made with the same 2 stamps sets, the same paper and the almost identical accessories...added glitter to the cupcake cards!

These cards are super simple, but I just LOVE how they turned out, I lvoed them so much that I already sent them on their way to theirt loving new homes! Can you believe it...these beauties are already gone!!!

Here is a closeup of the NEW scallop boarder punch and the heart. I sponged the edge with the Riding Hood Red and colored the heart with the same color...can you say LOVE IT!!!! The paper is from the NEW Bella Rose designer series paper...LOVE IT!!!
Here is the same card, but this time I used the cupcake from the monkey set and the wished from the Herd the Heard set...

I also used the Pink Pirouette and added dazzling diamonds to the top of the cupcake and candle...Gotta love a little shimmer!!!!

Seriously, these cards are identical but seve different purposes...great use of both sets if I do say so myself! But the BEST part is that they both took less than 10 minutes to make!

I might be a little partial, but I like the second one better, the paper bow is a little bit thinner and that appeals to me a little more!


Stamps: Herd from the Heards, Sock Monkey

Paper: Shimmery White, Bella Rose designer paper

Ink: Basic Black, pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red

Accessories: Scallop boarder punch, spong, aqua painter, 2 way glue pen, dazzling diamonds

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed the sneak peek! Come back tomorrow for more...I promise to post a little earlier in the day!!!

Happy Stampin'

WOW!!! After the day (okay, summer) I've had with my 2 boys, I really needed that Bible verse and your thoughts. It is so nice to know that I'm not the only one that gets a little frustrated at times. Funny thing is, I just found your blog 5 minutes ago, and my husband earlier tonight just let our kids know I'm tired of the business they've been giving me. I'm glad I am not the only human feeling this way. Wouldn't it be nice to handle all things like Him?
