St. Patrick's Day Wishes/RAK

Another card to give as a RAK...
(Random Act of Kindness)

green heart fill paper, wordart in frame, and heart element are all from Create with TLC.

Piano keyboard was in my saved files from the internet.

I have altered the colors of the original heart element as well as lightened the paper fill.  I also made the word art look like a sticker.  I do all of my digital art in Paint Shop Pro.

If you'd like to use this, please just save it to your own computer and print from there.

Thank you...

but we are becoming grandparents

Valentine's Day topper

~Happy February to everyone!~ 

Such wonderful happy things to think
about and plan for February 14th!


Here is a topper I put together using elements
from Paulette at the Create with TLC blog.

The single image is an 8.5 x 11" image.
The one with four makes four toppers to
use on top of baggies you put treats into.

Here's to ROMANCE!


POEM to attach to a Heart Shaped Gift

Your little touches of love
Your kind words and deeds
And your simple kind smile
Give my heart what it needs
To transform my soul
To a dazzling light.
You make my Heart Sparkle
With pure joy and delight.
*attach to a heart necklace, earrings, ring, key chain,
ornament, review mirror hanging heart,
ANYTHING designed around a heart shape....

God's BoxesI have in my hands two boxes,
Which God gave me to hold.
He said, 'Put all your sorrows in the black box,
And all your joys in the gold.'
I heeded His words, and in the two boxes,
Both my joys and sorrows I stored,
But though the gold became heavier each day,
The black was as light as before.
With curiosity, I opened the black,
I wanted to find out why,
And I saw, in the base of the box, a hole,
Which my sorrows had fallen out by.
I showed the hole to God, and mused,
'I wonder where my sorrows could be!'
He smiled a gentle smile and said,
'My child, they're all here with me..'
I asked God, why He gave me the boxes,
Why the gold and the black with the hole?
'My child, the gold is for you to count your blessings,
The black is for you to let go'
