Veranda Card

A card (made with Veranda paper, stamps used: a tweet, and Authentic) I made for a sweet friend Carol!! She was diagnosed with breast cancer. After having pain in her breast she had her mammogram early. The cancer was found very very early and was contained in the duct. She had surgery last week!! And she has her own "gang" of men and women and children who love her and are standing and BELIEVING GOD with her that she will not need any further treatment for this! And that cancer is finished in her life!! 1 Peter 2:24 says that by Jesus stripes she was healed!! God speaks to us-that thought-feeling- that knowing!(do you know what Im talking about??)-dont ever ignore it-your life could depend on it!!
Love and blessings!! jolena

Congrats to graduates!! My friend Alex graduated this past weekend. We have known her since she was 6 years old. This past winter we went out and played around and I took some photos of her. (then my friend Ali Brown added her editing genius touch to it!) And so I scrapbooked this page for Alex. And I also made her this little card to go with it!

Topstitch layout

My layout with Top stitch, of my precious Peyton who turned 8 in February!! I'm crazy about my Peyton and this paper!! Pink and brown are always yummy together!! Don't you think?
And by the way Happy Resurrection Day to you!
We celebrate You, JESUS, with hearts full of praise and gratitude for who You are and all You've done for us! Did you know our sin separated us from God, we were sentenced to hell for eternity, Jesus was crazy in love with us, and He stepped in and paid the price that our sin deserved! He suffered and died for you and me! His resurrection is the proof of His payment! Jesus the Son of God is alive and we are forgiven!! He longs to have a close relationship with each of us! Have you chosen Him to be your personal Lord and Savior? Today is great day to call on Him and be saved! Has your heart drifted away from Him, draw near to Him and He will draw near to you!!
Love and blessings to you!! Jolena

wedding card

I went to the sweetest wedding last weekend. So I made this card for my dear friend Amy and her new hubby! She was such a beautiful and happy bride. Amy has an amazing story of Gods grace, mercy and goodness! She once was a meth. addict and she lost over 10 years of her life to drugs. But our God-Savior,Redeemer, and Restorer got a hold of her heart and forever changed her life into one of great beauty. While serving God at church-her prince came! And now I pray they will live happily ever after!

Creature card

My sons love to draw me pictures of googly eyed creatures when I saw this CTMH stamp set Merry Monsters-I had to have it for them! They are going to have so much fun stamping and making some very cute cards with it! I saw and was inspired by a card that Mercy Kerin did and so I had to pull it out and play with it myself.
Blessings to you! Jolena
