        This week has been so uplifting for me because I went to Vacation Bible School. It brought back memories of when I was a little girl many moons ago. One of the things that we as children had to look forward to was going to Vacation Bible School. Vacation Bible School was in the daytime and, we all would ride our bikes to go. I believe that was where I learned the song Jesus loves the little children. I was not a good singer, but I was a loud one. It has been a good time meeting new people and studying some of the old bible stories. I am so glad the church I went to had adult classes. For the parents who just dropped off their children and did not take the opportunity to go to the adult classes, you missed out on a good time. I know you came for card making, so let me grab a cup of coffee and let us begin with today’s card.

         Today’s card is the second card of my encouraging series. I have enjoyed designing my cards for this series. I have tried to use as many of the techniques we have learned over the past year. Try to figure out how many different techniques I use before you read the steps. Enough talk, let’s get to making this card.

Word of the Day

        Today’s word is Hospitality. Can you remember as a child when your family opened their home to other people? When I was a young girl, I can remember when my parents had people over for dinner, play games, and visiting. As the years passed, I was seeing fewer people opening up their homes. Just think of how many life-changing decisions came out of people sitting at each other houses. Hospitality is an art. I can’t wait to have people over again.
Well, as much as I have enjoyed our time together, it is time to go. Please be safe and always make time to create and craft.

  3. Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time
    selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m
    looking for something unique. P.S Sorry for
    being off-topic but I had to ask!
