Home Sweet LilyPad!!!

Happy Sunday!

Good morning!

I hope that you have had a great weekend.

Friday, my friend Shirley and I went to Archiver's for the 9 mini Valentine Cards Class. I will share them with you on Tuesday. The class was okay, but could have been better. Projects were cute, would mass produce easily, and were very CASEable.

My weekend has been good. Have been working on 1099's, etc., so it's been busy, but the highlight of the weekend is that gram and gramps are pup-sitting this weekend for Rosie the wonder-granddaughter-dog! DD flew to Phoenix this weekend to meet up with a friend, and run the Rock and Roll Half Marathon. You know, this pup sitting is a tough job, but somebody's gotta do it.... (insert ginormous smile here!).

Well, as it is Sunday, it's time for a new challenge at Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge Blog. Our hostess this week is the lovely and talented Grace. Grace is one of the sweetest bloggers I've met! Her scripture this morning is:

"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new". ~ 2 Corinthians 5:17

Grace challenges us to use the theme of "NEW" and interpret it as you want: new year, new life, new birth, new supplies, new house, etc.

When you enter the challenge, please tell us what you used to fit our challenge!

Our sponsor this week is Clear Dollar Stamps.

We appreciate CDS, and thank them for being such a faithful and generous sponsor!

For my card today, I have used a darling digital set from Clear Dollar Stamps.

My card is for a dear friend who is moving into a new home very soon! She has been crafting out of boxes, (and doing a better job than I do!), and has moved from one state to another! So, my card is for a new home!

Clear Dollar Stamps Digital Image and Sentiment, Basic Grey Curio Collection, Ribbon from my stash, Coloring done with Copic Markers, Flower from Hobby Lobby.

Be sure to head over to the Stampin' Sisters in Christ blog, to see Grace's gorgeous creation, and read her thoughts on the scripture she chose.

Without a doubt, you will be uplifted, and given much food for thought for the upcoming week! Can't wait to see your challenge entry!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I hope that you have a wonderful week...

My Itty-Bitty Blog Candy Winner will be announced on Wednesday!

Thanks to all who have left comments, and shared their cutting secrets with us all!

Hugs and Blessings,

Patti J.

That is really sweet Patti, I am a froggie fan, and that is a cute one! I knew CDS has introduced digis but I haven't really looked beyond their clear acrylics yet. This could inspire me! I hope you have fun pup sitting! Looking forward to this year of stamping ministry!
