Hello Everyone- Welcome and Thank you for stopping by! I have found myself on this home ward journey of cooking more and doing more cleaning and reading. Do you find that in the colder months you do that too? As I have gotten older, I really do not want to go out and do things. I want to hunker down in my comfy cozy clothes and spend time here at home.

I am reading a book with some new friends called Feminine Appeal by Carolyn Mahoney and find myself called to do things a bit differently. What is interesting is I have been on this journey for the past 5 years. I find the LORD has been changing my heart and the changes have been very positive for my family. Cooking more, cleaning more and just enjoying my family. What a blessing they are to me!

Today, I am sharing a card with you using a tutorial from the Technique Junkie Newsletter, October 2010 called Clipped Corners. This card uses the BEAUTIFUL Vintage candle stamp set available at I Brake For Stamps. This stamp is available individually or as a set called Vintage Christmas.

So glad you added to Top Tip Tuesday this week. I love these poinsettias- you always make them look so realistic.
I am with you and "nesting" lately, how wonderful to want to make your family more comfortable and cared for, the lord works in wonderful ways doesn't he?
Maybe I can borrow your book? Good Luck with your card class, let me know when the next one is.
