Happy Mid week everyone! Hey.. I don't know about where you are..but FINALLY the sun is shining here! Seems like it's been so long since we've seen it. Happy Dance going on here!
Maybe the sun shining is what got me up early this morning? Whatever the reason..I was up, so I decided to make a card.
I used one of the images from Crafty Secrets Vintage photos Creative Scraps. All these images are so cute, I always have a hard time picking which to use.
I told you a while back about some new AccuCut dies I got. Well this is one of them. (Two square card mats on this die) and I love them both :) I used the die on the right for the card above. I decided to try something different and fold the top edge down. I really like the look........so brace yourself.. you will probably be seeing it used that way alot from me in the future. lol
Item #: NC116
Like I mentioned at the beginning of my post.. it's been "sunless" here for some time. ( Seems like months) Cold... cloud... ick.. You get the idea. I can tell I'm really ready for warmer weather, because it's making me kind of .. well... "grouchy". lol I usually always try to see the glass half full, not half empty... but I think there are just times when you need to just stop and think about being thankful for the little things . I don't think I've been doing that enough lately.. so I'm really going to make a point of doing it everyday. Of course we are all thankful for our family, having food and a roof over our heads...but sometimes it's the little things, the "everyday" things that are what make the day a little brighter.
As I was thinking about this when I was laying in bed this morning (debating about getting up) I thought about some of the little things I was thankful for yesterday. Really..they were "little" things that make my day a little brighter.
Yesterday I got my new "just released" RCPM CD. I popped it in and let it play while I was working .. and it was fantastic. So, I have to say... Yesterday ( well...everyday actually)... I was so thankful for Good music!
Well, this picture probably says it all. I am SO thankful to have my little Aly pup here by my side. (Guarding the yard from Squirrels)
And ..this one is kind of strange..but I really am thankful for ....my phone. As much as phones can be annoying at times... I'm so thankful for it because it keeps me connected to my far away family. Actually now with texting .. I love how everyone in my family.. near and far can be in contact even more than ever. ( Sometimes several times a day :)
Hows that for a random mix of things to be thankful for ? lol
I'd love to hear 3 little things that made your day a little brighter yesterday.
