with a little encouragement...

We all can use a little pick me up and encouragement once and awhile to achieve something grand, what may have seemed like the impossible or just keep us going throughout the day. My children get a good does of this, but it is a day like yesterday when it just isn't enough and you must bring all of your resources together to get over the hump. We are currently working on several big steps with our first grader and confidence is a little lean on his end. After trying to assist with learning to ride a bike and his worry mounting over falling off the...which has never happened...I hit my favorite instructional video site YouTube for some advice and hoping to get him back on this evening and try this again. By the time our second child is ready we should have this down...right?

After a busy week away I am here to share a few projects created this week and a giveaway! So to just jump right into it...
Seeing that another school year has begun it is only fitting for this month's theme over at
MelJen's Designs takes us back to the classroom. This digital image, little chalk board, is perfect for any project. I used the chalk board and apple image (cropped, resized and flipped) to create this card. Remember that you can use a digital image as is or crop it as desired. This gives you so many more options for styling!Hop on over to 365 Cards for some truly AMAZING creations today! This week's stamps were provided by DRS Designs (sentiment and vine). Also used ribbon from Prairie Bird Boutique, a new die set and adhesive pearls from Paper Garden Projects.

At first I scrambled to find a few pieces to complete this week's Mission 25 for Mission To Create, but in the end I was able to use all five concepts. After running low on adhesive, thread and foam tape I pulled it together. Check out the blog this week's mission and enter your card to win!

Finally, I have put together a little giveaway which will end on Thursday at midnight...


All you have to do is leave a comment here and I will pick one winner and post it on Friday. I have two more giveaways to following come Friday!

Have a wonderful week and see you back here soon!
