Wednesday Wowzer {ippity} Time

22 Aug
Today I have a fun card I have made with a special friend in mind to give this to.
This is for a friend who lives locally and works harder than most women I know.
She is quiet and has been known to hide behind produce to avoid talking to people, but I can say I have been lucky enough to go out to Ice Cream with her, so it’s safe to say, we are beyond the hiding behind the produce stage:)
I am using the set called SIMPLY HOME for this card.  While making this card, I thought of my friend Brooke, for so many reasons.  She runs her own farm, she posts the most hilarious things sometimes about her adventures on the farm, she works with the local search and rescue team(I don’t know if I got the term right, sorry), she is a wonderful cook, a wonderful mom, wife and a devoted and loving daughter of god.
The phrase on the card says “Life is Simple.”  I thought of that, and physically life in far from simple for Brooke.  But it is important for you to know, that she is the kind of person that would tell you that if you just break life down to the basics, such as Living for and Loving God and finding Joy in something every day, then you could say that yes, “Life is Simple.” ….and that is why this card inspired me to think and write about Brooke and make this just for her!
So there you have it..a little peek into the life of someone I know!
I’ll give this to her as is…so she can just have it in her home, or if she feels like giving it someone at some point..she can!
I hope you liked my story…
Special kudos goes to Cheery Lynn Designs for the dies I used on this card also!

    Aboslutely beautiful! I am SO in love with Cheery Lynn Designs, and am having fun playing along in the challenges. So glad I found the blog. I definitely want to continue playing along. I have only TWO Cheery Lynn die-cuts, so I guess I better start growing my collection so I can continue to play along. They have such gorgeous stuff. It won’t be difficult finding more items to purchase. Thanks for all the inspiration, and for your sweet comments on my blog.

    I would love to have you follow me, and I have just become your follower here. I love getting inspiration for various products that I love. I look forward to visiting you more in the weeks ahead.

    Jeannie I just love this card and the beautiful story of your friend Brooke. I have a friend named Joy who lives on a farm that has been in her family for generations….her family was the original homesteaders way back when the west was being settled. Life is simple when you break it down as you said…and there is something to be joyful about in every day even during the hardest times!
    Thanks for sharing your GORGEOUS card! I love it and the story behind it!
    Crafty Hugs,
