Smile and Be Happy...

I everyone. I hope you all have been enjoying your week. I am posting late today. I have not been very crafty this past week. My mind is really busy thinking about the move and I have not shared this yet but I have someone very close to me going through cancer. It is my step-father. Can I just say that I really dislike cancer. I have lost friends and family members cancer. It is so hard to see a loved one go through this. I know that God is in control and will give comfort and love always. I know that if I did not have God in my life I would not be able to cope with the pain and sadness that cancer brings. So today all I can say is cherish each day and always remember to tell your loved ones that you love them. You never know what tomorrow brings. So I tell you Smile and Be Happy, God loves us all. 

Recipe: Mama Elephant Hello stamp set, Teresa Collins He said She said 6x6 paper pad, Versa Fine onyx black ink pad, Misc ribbon, Timeless Twine Kraft brown, Neenah white card-stock, Scotch advanced tape glider and EK Success cutter-bee snips.

I am also entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp.. Anything Goes.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a blessed day.

  26. Very cute card. I understand how you feel about cancer. I too have lost friends and family to cancer. Just last year I lost my sister to cancer and we were very close. She found out she had cancer and two months later she was gone. So hard for those of us left behind. May God bless you with happy memories of those you have lost.
