"Kaisercraft Lantern Scene"

It's Friday and the weekend is here.
Hello to everyone on this November 16, 2018. 
Some of you managed to survive the first wintery mix of the year.  The slipping and sliding is what some of you are accustomed to. Not this blog writer.  The older I get, the heavy rainfall is too much for me, nonetheless snow and sleet..  We had to venture out yesterday in the rain and the driving that people do when it is a downpour and when the roads are wet. makes your heart pump extra fast due to their inconsiderate ways. Thankfully we made it to our destination and back home without any problems...except for one, which had nothing to do with the weather.  DH picked up the wrong battery for his Jeep and had to take it back this morning.
I had cut out the dies from a Kaisercraft  Lantern Scene and put them in my die cut container.  Those are the ones I pulled out today to make a card to share with you.
Here is my share for today:

"In This Season Of Thanksgiving"

Hello friends, followers, visitors and viewers.
I hope all is well with you on this Thursday, November 15, 2018.  We are moving on up to the end of 2018 with only a month and two weeks to go.
Thanksgiving is next Thursday.  Yes, I knew you were aware of this holiday.  What is so sad is the fact that a lot of people wait until this day to say what they are thankful for.  What about you?  Do you wait until November (Thanksgiving Day) to make or to say a list of things that you are thankful for?
Okay, here is what I want you to do at this moment...set your timer for one minute...start naming everything you are thankful for.   How many items were on your list before the buzzer sounded? 
This little exercise helped you to not wait until next Thursday.  The point is that we should wake up with thankfulness on our hearts, minds and tongues every day.

"Scripture Card...Psalm 62:5"

Hello friends, followers, visitors and friends.
It has been a while since I last shared a bible journaling scripture card with you.  I put this up front because I know there are a lot of people who do not want to know anything about the bible and they will skip over anything related to it.  So, I've given you fair warning.  I'm a Christian and I love my Creator.
For the one who wants to continue reading...where do you find your rest and hope?
People who are physically tired will say that they find rest in the bed or on the couch sleeping.   They  also find rest taking a day off from their job or any activity that will be mentally or physically challenging. 
People who are sick from a deadly disease or will be having major surgery  may say that their hope is in the medical staff who will be taking care of them. 
In both examples, in the natural fleshly level, these would be and are true.  We need to get physical rest for these tired bodies as well as put some hope in the doctors who are skilled to perform exceptionally well on us  when we are ill.
However, if the statement was changed to include your soul which is the spiritual level, where would you find rest and hope?

Here is the card I made centered around the title of this blog today:

Enabler's List:
cardstock: Neenah white;  Recollections olive green;  Prima Santorini;  g.c.d. studios Antiquities
die: AliExpress
embellishments: Studio g self-adhesive white pearls;  Recollections flowers

I pray that your soul find rest in God and your hope comes from Him.
Have a glorious day no matter if it is raining, snowing, humid or just cold. 
Thanks for viewing.

Sending you a hug and love,

"Reminisce"

Good Tuesday to all.
What past events can you remember that made you feel a certain way?
In your remembrance, is it a good one or a bad one?  Do we tend to keep the good and forget about the bad?    I'm very sure that all of us would love to reminisce about the "good times and the good days" and keep all of the bad things away from our memory.  Don't you agree?

Here is a card I made with that one word (Reminisce) as the sentiment.  Take a look and see if it triggers a memory.  Take a little time to reminisce today (I'm quite sure we do this daily anyway).

"Mini Folio"

Happy Friday everyone. 
Yes, we made it to the beginning of a weekend break.  Although, we are having a very rainy day, it is still beautiful.  The wind is blowing and there is a shower of leaves.  They have finally changed colors...red, yellow, a little burnt orange and those green leaves that still want to hang on a little longer.
While I was deep into making craft fair projects for my daughter, I was working on some mini albums or folios.  I didn't finish as many as I had promised so I scratched sending them to her.  Instead, my grandchild is having two major functions that she is involved in going on for Thanksgiving and one before Christmas.  She is in a dance class event as well as a gymnastic event.  I thought I would give her these two folios to put pictures in.
Caution!  This post is very heavy on the photos:
The first folio:
I used papers from Prima; My Mind's Eye; Recollections; and Tim Holtz.
Graphic 45 tags;   Prima and Recollections flowers;  ribbon from Walmart;  Martha Stewart faux pearls;  Spellbinders ballerina die;  stickers from My Big Idea sticker sheet.









The second folio:
Paper from Stamperia Wonderland; Prima flowers; Walmart ribbon; Martha Stewart faux pearls
