Life is good

 Life is good....what a great saying.  After watching the news and seeing the sadness out there, makes my life really good.  I appreciate and am so grateful.  Just taking a moment and reflecting on how good it is.  My card today for our challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks is to use pins, some call them pushpins, or hat pins.  Whichever you call them, that is what I would like to see on your project.  I love them, it adds another great element to your card/project.  I make mine, I did buy some once, but thought, heck it would be super awesome if I could make these. They are so easy to create, and fun to make too. So this is what I have come up with.
#206 Pins 4 Crafty Chicks
 My card today, I used my new Spellbinder that I purchased with my friends, Tamie/Bonnie on a craft shopping trip in June.  So much fun, trying to figure out which one I like more.  I do not have borders so this was so much fun.  I used my new stamps/die from Heartfelt Creations.  Oh the flowers were so much fun to make.  And we all know I do like my flowers.  The paper is from Heartfelt Creations also.  I added a bow, I used seam binding for that, and some glues, used the sentiment that comes with the paper pack, and I hope you like what I created.
 Thanks again and I hope you go over to 4 Crafty Chicks and play my challenge this week.  The chicks sure have outdid themselves yet again.  Till next time happy crafting!
