Back to Paper!

I can not explain nor put to words just how much I missed my paper crafts. As many of you know my twins have each spent close to a week in the hospital this month and I have had to stay and care for them.

While they are not completely recovered they are on the mend. Thank-you so much to all of you who wrote me of your kind prayers and wishes for my family. I honestly believe they would not be recovering so quickly without all the prayers that were offered on their behalf. I am in debt to you all!

I missed my paper more then anything! When I think of all the hours i was just sitting in the hospital praying and hoping for my babies to be well, the one thing I wish I had to comfort me was paper. However, there would not have been a mo to play even if I had it. I could not let my babies out of my arms. And now LORD help me! They are completely mum dependent; they are glued to me! No complaints, it is lovely to be needed!

Today I decided to steal a mo for myself and play with paper. I played along with 365 cards. Ladies I tell you I love my Scor-it! I so often find that with heavy paper it is near impossible to make a perfect fold line without this valuable tool. And to create a quilt card without it? Why even try! Trust me ladies this is the must have tool!

I hope you too play along!


It's all in the Ingredients:

Paper- SU! choco chip, MME DP

Embellishments- paper flowers dollar store, button creative cafe, hemp twine, Marvey scallop square punch, hand cut paper leaves(green scrap paper), SCOR-IT
