Sweet Doily Die-Cut

About a year ago, I found a wonderful company called Cheery Lynn Designs.  I went to their website, and ordered some die cuts; including the beautiful large doily die-cut I've used on this card.  Then, yesterday. . . .I found out, quite by chance, that they also have a challenge blog.  I was SO excited.  I got out one of my Cheery Lynn Designs die-cuts and made this little card for their current challenge.

Here is a link to the Cheery Lynn Deisgns current challenge.  I hope you will check it out and play along, as well as checking out their amazing diecuts and other products. - Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge Blog - Challenge #41 - ABC - Use Letters

I'm also entering the following: - Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge #153 - Use No Image, Just Sentiment.  I used a favorite Bible verse as my focal point. - Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog - Animal Antics.   I added a little Bee. - Crafty Mess Challenge Blog - Challege #15 - Words Only/No Image

I had a wonderful time at church this morning.  We have a friend visiting from out of town who went to church with us, which is always a blessing.  Then we went out to lunch, and now the boys are all at Bass Pro Shops while the girls chill out at home.  I'm obviously taking advantage of this time to craft and blog.

Thanks for visiting me today.  I hope that you will all have a blessed day, and a wonderfukl week.  I appreciate your visit and your comments.

God bless you all,
