God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
--Reinhold Niebuhr
"Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But, if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."
---Muhammad Ali

"We are driven to create at this deep wordless level of the soul because we are all fashioned in the image of a God who is an Artist." - Michael Card, Scribbling in the Sand.

I've been a busy beaver the last few days.  I have several birthdays at work this month so I got busy and made cards:

Image is magnolia and paper is all K & Co I believe.

The Happy Birthday and Just a note are Close to my heart Stamps.  The scollop and tag were both sprayed with my home made glimmer mist.

Inside and out side of one of the cards...this one went to our director.

paper is K & Co, image is Magnolia from the Fairy Tale Collection, the copics were all from the RV family for her dress, the ribbon is maya Road, the little roses were Magnolia's.

This one went to a young lady that started out working in my area of the offic and is now a counselor so proud of her.

Image is CC Design the paper is so old I have no idea who made it and it's the few scraps I had left of it.

This one is for a friend I thought just needed something to brighten her day.

Edwin from Magnolia is the boy stamp, Happy Birthday is SU, the hinge was cut out with tim Holtz sizzix then crackle coated, sanded, distressed and finally a second coat of crackle.

Sarah Kay Image for the little girl, stamp for happy birthday is SU, the tulips are magnolia and the bottom punch is Martha Stewart.  The paper was mostly Jenni Bowlin and Create Restoration

And last but not least I don't think I've shared these yet.  The little boy is for one of the guys at work and the Sarah Kay image is a just because.
