Merci for your patience! RAK time!!

Merci

I wanted to say ‘Merci’ to all my blog readers for your sweet comments and for your patience with me!  December is a month where I really try to focus on my priorities and I had intended to post this earlier but you know how it goes! 

I stamped this card with Gina K Designs stamp, ‘Lovely Lables Two’ and then cut/embossed it with Spellbinders Labels Fifteen.  The brown felt is Viola from Prima Marketing. 

So, to thank you all for being such amazing blog readers and in the Christmas spirit of giving I wanted to post a RAK.  At this time of year, it’s so easy to get caught up in all the festivities and forget that the reason we are celebrating ‘giving,’ is that God gave, sent, His son to earth as a baby boy.  Jesus then grew to be a man went through many of the same trials we do (He understands what you are going through!)  In the end, giving up his own own life because He loves us so much.  He wanted us to have the ultimate gift which is eternal life with Him!  It amazes me that all we have to do is ask Him to forgive us (which is a gift of freedom in itself!) and to make Him Lord of life.  I can’t tell you how truly blessed I am to be living by this faith.  There is no greater peace

I can hardly wait until Friday afternoon when the kids are done with school and we can do some more baking and fun crafts together.  I have a few recipes to share too!

Here are a few shots of the RAK.  It was hard to get a good photo because I only have my zoom lens still.

The kit standing up in the back is a My Mind’s Eye kit and it includes 6 gorgeous pieces of pattern paper, rub ons, overlays, and several die cuts.  Also in the back there are a package of Heidi Swapp glossy accents and a package of Hambly Screen Prints Rub ons.  Shown below is some gorgeous pattern paper, rub ons, chipboard, stickers, trim, flowers, buttons and stamps.  The companies represented are: Studio CalicoPink Paislee, GCD Studios, Collage Press, Creative Imaginations, SEI, Imaginisce, Papertrey Ink, Kaiser Crafts, Prima Marketing, Doodle Bug Designs, lots of Little Yellow Bycle and some of my very favorite Tiny Type alphabets from Cosmo Cricket!  Phew!  Everything is new in it’s package.

You wil have until Wednesday, December 22nd midnight PST to post a comment to be eligible.  That way, I can try and pop in the mail before Christmas!  Be sure to check back to find out if you’re the winner. 

I’ll be posting soon with more projects.  Off to finish the teacher gifts.  **wink**
