HAVE COURAGE AND BE KIND, featuring Scrapbook Circle

Hello friends!

Today, I’m on the Scrapbook Circle blog with a layout featuring the June Sunshine Days kit.

My baby sister just graduated from college, and of course I had to document it!  As you can see, I am still loving my silhouette!  I have done many circle layouts, using punches, freehand cutting, and metal dies, but I love what the silhouette can do!

Come check out the blog for a tech tip, more photos, and how I created this layout!

Happy Wednesday!

cards for the Lasting Hearts Card Drive

Hello friends!  Today I’m sharing a few cards I made for the Lasting Hearts Card Drive.

The Lasting Hearts Card Drive is trying to provide comfort to mothers “who have lost a piece of their heart.”  I am hoping my cards will bring comfort to a mother who has just lost a baby.  Miscarriage.

I have to admit that when I read about this card drive on Jennifer McGuire’s blog post, it struck a particular part of my heart.  Not many people know this, but I know what it is to loose a piece of your heart…in fact, I have lost a piece of my heart twice in the last few years.  I know what it feels like to have silence fill the room where a heart beat should be.  I know what it feels like to cry so hard, so much and so long that there are no more tears left.  I am very thankful for the 2 blessings that are our girls, and can only leave the rest up to God.

You can send in cards for this card drive too, or you can make a monetary donation.  All the information is in the above linked post on Jennifer McGuire’s blog.

Here are more close up pictures of each card and some product details (I will provide links where I can):
