I have just had trouble making a card lately… one I have been busy there is lots going on in my life right now… but too/two when I have had a chance I just could not come up with a card… Yesterday I went and bought this beautiful paper by K&Company, entitled Susan Winget … and I came home and still could not think of a card… then this morning during my Bible study time I remembered what Pastor Francois said at Church one night … he said “Many believers do not rise up in the morning to command the day to favor them and to command the wicked to be shaken our of their place.”…. just after finishing my Bible study and prayer I took my dog, Shaggy out… and it was just the most beautiful day… I said right out loud… I command this day as a day of favor in my life… and I command my mind to make a pretty card.. I will not let evil get in my way!”… I walked back in the house picked up this paper pack… and the in my little head was this card! … God is so good!! This is for a couple at our church that invited us to a gathering tonight… I hope that they love it.

I spent last Friday with my dear friend Jeannene and her daughter Kim…. They make these wonderful note card sets… I had to try one… This set is for a dear lady at my church, her name is Kay. Kay has been such an inspiration to me in my walk with God. I have learned so much from her, she is absolutely amazing… she loves God so much… you can tell her is just her personal friend!… I aspire to be like her to know God like she does. I so hope that she loves her note card set.. Thank you so much for looking!.. Thank you Jeannene and Kim for teaching me how to do this and inspiring me… and feeding my heart and soul! Hugs, Jeannie

Card Case
This is an 8 ½ x 11 piece of cardstock turned so it is wider than taller….score 5 inches from each end…then score 2 inches and 2 ½ inches from the bottom… cut out the center part between the 2 and 2 ½ inch score lines.. Fold the bottoms up.. To create a bottom… anyway it makes a little book like thingy… (don’t your love my terminology!) I added a strip of paper across the middle, it goes all the way around the outside of the “book.” I added eyelets to each side wrapped my ribbon all the way around the outside of the book…it has tape on the back to hold it in place…fed the ribbon through the eyelets and this keeps the book closed.

CRICUT & GYPSY
Lovely Floral
Circle flourish and its circle base cut @ h 2.81...set the height and the width will be right on both cuts… on the Cricut I would cut these @ 2 ¾ and inch.
Jasmine

The trim across the middle of each background were from the paper pack that I used.
