Recalling a Favorite

As I've mentioned before, there are so many lovely shops out there where I enjoy shopping for crafting supplies.  What's even more rare is when you find one of those favorite companies that you love, which is also owned and run by a truly good person.  Such is the case at My Craft Spot by Kimberly.  The blog has tons of inspiration every day, the store is filled with the sweetest stamps, metal dies, seam binding and goodies; and what's more, it's owned by one of the sweetest and most genuine gals you'll ever meet - sweet Kimberly.  It just makes you feel good being a part of something so real.  So, for this week's challenge at My Craft Spot the theme is to share a card from the past using one of more of My Craft Spot's sweet products.
I made this card a while back and I've since used it to give to a friend for her Birthday.  I love having a glassine bag on the front of a card to tuck a gift card inside.  It's the perfect touch.  The items I used from My Craft Spot are the Small Bow Tie Die-Cut and the Black Baker's Twine.
My Craft Spot by Kimberly - Challenge #152 - Blast From The Past" - I used a couple of favorites from My Craft Spot including my ALL-TIME FAVORITE, the Small Bow Metal Tie which I cut from black chalkboard papers, as well as their sweet Black Baker's Twine.
For those of you who have been following my sister-in-law, Audra's, progress, she is having a week off from chemo therapy and radiation because her white blood count is too low for further treatment.  To be perfectly honest, she is happy to have a whole week at home with her husband and children.  She is fighting SO hard, and we are still trusting God for a miracle.
Thanks for visiting me today, and have a wonderful and creative week!
Blessings to you,
