Friday Sketchers and random ramblings!

Here is my card based on the new sketch from Friday Sketches - i love the Wishing You stamp set from Papertrey so I stamped just the tops of the tulips to make the dragonfly the main focus. Thanks for the inspiration girls and the design team cards are gorgeous - go check them out!

Now the rambling bit - please feel free to sleep during the following section... ;)

On the 15th of September last year i posted the following on my blog (it was amongst the stuff that got lost when i switched some settings so im reposting it) ....

When i first decided, a couple of weeks ago, to make positive steps in my life i knew i needed to do things for me, more cardmaking, scrapbooking, these things make ME happy I found a tin of Rhonna Farrah rub ons that i have had for years but never used.

I rifled through the tin and 3 jumped out at me - Faith, Hope and Love.

I had the perfect place to put them and just knew the overhang of the stairs was one of the first places i would see every morning without doubt as i headed downstairs to start a new day. That night i finished another chapter of Manifest Your Destiny and the closing words were But Faith, Hope and Love never fail. *that was a warm cosy moment i tell you*

I carried on making my cards and doing the challenges and got an email from the girls at SBS18 to let me know i had won a prize for my Relax accordian folder. The stamps arrived in an envelope that had been stuck down with sticky tape that read.....

But Faith, Hope and Love never fail.


Spooky eh! :D Well, a couple of weeks ago i called into the Scrapbook Shop to pick up some goodies to make my next class with. I was given some of the sticky decorative tape etc and also asked if i would like to make some show goods for the shop - i came home and popped the class bag away and worked on the shop stuff.

Last week i received an email saying i had been chosen as part of the new Scrapbookmate Design Teamwhich was so unexpected as i had forgotten i had even applied! :) Other good things are happening right now too and everything seems to be falling into place without too much worry etc.

Fast forward to when i was preparing my class on Thursday. I opened the packs of tape and guess what one of them said.......... cool is that!!

It reminded me to stop stressing about things and go with the flow a little more, life has a plan and everything will be fine :) xxx
