CPT ~ Blessings For You!

Rain rain go away come again another day! Well actually I'm enjoying the sound of the rain as I get a bit of crafting done this afternoon. We had a busy weekend and it's good to be on the lazy side of life right now. I wanted to remind you that our challenge at The Creative Paper Trade has been extended through this week. Yay...now you have until the 18th to get busy on your entry. I have a card to help inspire you. I've combined all three of our challenges into one using a softer gold rather than the orange color.



I have been hoarding the paper from this darling Crate Paper collection since this past spring. Shameful I know but aren't these little girls the sweetest! I set my mind on diving into those hoarded items. Don't know how successful I'll be, but I'm going to give it a go!

All of the DPs here are Crate Paper, the die cuts are PTI with the exception of the MFT leaves. I've used portions of sentiments from our sponsor Paper Sweeties. I made a rosette using some fabric ribbon and tulle that Andrea sent me along with one of her crocheted blooms.

We have three family members in the hospital, so this is sure to go to one of them. I would like to ask for prayers today for my dear sweet mother-in-law who has broken her ankle ~ several breaks to be exact. Our sweet sister-in-law who had infection complications following a recent surgery and our daughter-in-law's sweet momma who has double pneumonia. We love all of these dear ladies to pieces and have had them all in our prayers.


Thanks for visiting today, I hope you have a chance to play along at 
The Creative Paper Trade! ~Lisa
