A - Maze- ing

A card at last!!!  Between a flu bug and the holiday I just haven't been able to get many cards finished.  I'll warn you in advance that I am very much a hit and miss blogger during the holidays.  I like to cherish every bit of family time we can get and I get busy with preparations.  And in the midst of all that I try to make sure that I take time to remember the real reason for Christmas - the birth of Jesus.

This card is for my niece, who just turned seven.  I wanted to make something fun and I remembered seeing this maze in a Paper Creations magazine that Mark bought for me several months ago.

  • A super, special husband.  Mark cooked Thanksgiving dinner, because I was still feeling really sick.  We're still enjoying the yummy leftovers.
  • My mil brought us cornbread dressing and apple dumplings for our dinner.  She's a terrific cook too.
  • Back to my special husband - he surprised me with some warm pajamas and remembered the style, the fabric and size I like without asking.  And they're pretty too. :)  What a fabulous guy!!!  The pjs have felt so good during this cold snap we've had. 
Please pray for my daughter, Lydia.  She's sick now.

Is there anything I can pray about for you?  If so, leave a comment or email me at

*** Watch for a bit of blog candy coming soon. :)

Have a marvelous day!!!

Inky hugs!

This is such a lovely card Shelly. You are so sweet and I enjoy your blog, especially when you highlight your blessings. It's a reminder to me to remember my blessings instead of feeling down about so many unimportant things. ;P Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. I hope you and your will feel better soon. ;D

Shelly this is so cute! love the idea, and such a simple, clean design! she'll love it!

thanks for your sweet comments on my blog - the file folders are coming in very handy! i LOVE the brown krafty paper, but they're also the PERFECT weight (and pre-scored, which helps!). i am a green queen (but i'm The Orange Girl).... :)
