CRAFTY TIPS FROM CARY:
Silicone Craft Sheet...

Silicone Craft Sheet 127853
Price: $6.00
Easily assemble embellishment--just put a dot of adhesive on the sheet and use both hands to assemble the embellishment, then pop it off the sheet when the glue is dry.

* 1 sheet
* 6" x 6"
* Translucent gray
* Nonstick, heat resistant silicone
* Works with any of our adhesives

Why should you own one of these?
Well, do you ever find that your SNAIL sticks to the placemat,
or that your project gets really sticky?
When I use my Craft Sheet I get to keep my work surface clean,
and keep the sticky part on the places it needs to be and not on me!
It also works well with my hot glue gun.
The best part is it is small enough that I can slip it in my tools box.


CARD YOU SHOULD CASE:
I love the little treat jar Maddie Bug Designs shared today!

Here is my CASE:
The top of my Jar

The front of my jar

Favorite photo from the camera::::
Look what I did>>>
Made a date with the hubby for Valentines Day!
Cannot believe it was 30 years ago ...
To be 15 again!


Prayers, Inspirational Quotes or Devotionals::::
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.”
Matthew 5:43-45
(I find my random Bible Quotes from the Sanders Family Website)


~I am ever so grateful for the Lord's never ending love~

Love Ya!

CRAFTY TIPS FROM CARY:
If you have not invested the 29.99 in one of these carts:
You should consider it...
I have held off for over a year.
I am using it as a station to hold my big shot
and supplies to make quick cards.
Having them easily moveable,
but off of my small stamping space allows for me to spread out.
I really like it and it is functional!


CARD YOU SHOULD CASE:

This Going Global Hearts Card!
Crafty Hallet is a very talented stamper I Follow on Instagram!
She has a beautiful sense of style!
I will CASE her later today and paste it
HERE!


Favorite photo from the camera::::
You know those wonderful recipes that float around Facebook?
Well, this one was a winner!
Not the BEST but it went over well!


Prayers, Inspirational Quotes or Devotionals::::
Beloved, we are God's children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears [1] we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.
1 John 3:2

CRAFTY TIPS FROM CARY:
Big Shot thinlets can be tricky to use.
But they add the most beautiful details  and dimension to your cards.
As we use our Big Shot it gets comfortable and loosens up.


It may take some unique tools to help you along...
Luck for us Stampin' Up! offers these tools too make the details come out so easy:

The Precision Plate by Stampin' Up! adds a little more oomph to your die sandwich,
making working with detailed dies a dream.

Then you cannot live without the Big Shot Die Brush tool...
It cleans up and helps get the little details out so fast!

CARD YOU SHOULD CASE:

I CASE'd this CARD:

The Bloomin' Heart Thinlet was so much easier to cut out using the above tools!






Favorite photo from the camera::::
I spent Friday afternoon in Lodi
as they celebrated the 125th Anniversary of GFWC>
What a amazing group of ladies!


Prayers, Inspirational Quotes or Devotionals::::
14 “The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.”

Favorite photo from the camera::::

This was last Tuesday...
shortly after this photo we put all our d├ęcor away!
The girls were watching a classic short mickey mouse movie.
Note that my boys had to watch it too!
Why is it we love Mickey Mouse so much?
Is it his laugh?
I think so!

Prayers, Inspirational Quotes or Devotionals::::





19 God is not man, that he should lie,
or a son of man, that he should change his mind.
Has he said, and will he not do it?
Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?

Numbers 23:19
