“Thank You”

There were nights where I was sure
I wouldn’t see the morning sun
And there were days that seemed so dark
I couldn’t wait for night to come
I couldn’t stand to think about how
My life used to be
And how without a single warning
It all slipped away from me
Like a fool I thought I could fight
The shadows on my own
To the dark I was no stranger
But this was stronger than I’d known
And by the time I knew that I was in too deep I’d gone too far
And the light that used to guide me
Had faded from my heart
And I found myself in places I thought I’d never go
Surrounded by stangers I was so far away from home
And I don’t know how you found me
All I know is I owe you everything
Yes I do
-Keith Urban

Whether you’re in an upward swing or a downward spiral; there is always room for a little gratitude 🙂


For this card, I needed to think outside the box because my first thought, when I looked at this embossing folder, was bees and I knew that more could be done with this pattern if I just put my mind to it.


Yes, its a honeycomb pattern…but its also a hexagon. So I figured, why not fill the hexagons with smaller ones made from some pretty patterned paper!


My ‘out of the box’ thinking soon took me to some really sweet ribbon that I picked up at a recent scrapbook convention. I love this ribbon! Its satiny, shiny and the color is so pretty! To make this flower, I simply ran some thread along the edge, pulled it tight and tied it off. The center bit of bling is just a button 🙂
