cupcakes and pleats

Happy Monday, AGAIN, everybody!  Why does it seem we are always just beginning our weeks? Well the sun is shining here in the PNW so I have to rejoice.  I'm listening to a random party mix my DS, Andy left for me today...it's like a psychedelic trip for my ears and I love it!!!  Right now, it's Angels and Airwaves, 'did ya know I love you'.  Priceless gifts like this make me want to shout, thank you, LORD for every tiny blessing you place in my life!  

I'm playing in the TLC today on SCS.  The focus is paper pleats.  I needed a birthday card for a dear friend and decided to use one of the first stamps I ever purchased, Tim Holtz's fairy girl with the bingo # wings!!!  I have included all the details of the creation over in my gallery so click on if you want to read more.  I love the admonition to ALWAYS  b Yoself  (forgive my slippin into some of the teenager talk around my house!)  But no matter our age, we should strive to shine as  the Lord created us to be...I know for me, I get jokes long after the punch line is delivered, I am slow to think, and my best jokes are always the ones based on my life!  

How about you?  Are you hiding your light or are you boldly going forth in this world, shining for all to see.  I know the gifts the Lord has endowed me with, I am using them everyday, some days not perfectly, but always striving to cause more smiles and tears of joy...so even though it's Monday, I'm going to count on a good one!  Oh, and if you wonder what's on the shuffle as I end this...Magic Mirror...Leon Russell

Blessings overflowing my friends, everywhere!
