With all the water main issues plus kids in swimming lessons and me being exhausted after swimming 45 minutes of laps five days a week, I haven't had the mojo to create. That being said, I'm dipping into some of the my Guest Diva cards I made for the actual Verve Release party that were not posted here on my blog. If you have seen them before, my apologies. If not, hope you enjoy them :)
I was giddy with joy when this card was done because I actually used two different DPs on one card. Not a big deal for many of you, but little old me has an issue using multiple DPs one one card, my newest nemesis now that the skewed panel thing is somewhat under control (did I just say that??!! Diva Dust, is wonderful stuff). Think this issue is mostly due to the fact that I don't have a lot of actual paper pads which have naturally coordinating DPs so I have to do the mixing and matching myself. Nothing like making it hard on myself, huh?!! Onward and upward I go :)
I just love this "U" die from Verve - so many wonderful words to use it with. I also love this sentiment and try to live by it daily. I don't like all things about me, insert very highly competitive female as well as a very direct communication style when focused or passionate about an issue, two traits that aren't exactly "feminine" and get me into trouble at times. However, God made me the way I am for a reason and I am embracing those areas in a deeper way as move up the age scale and approach the next decade of my life. That is why Philippians 1:6 is one of my favorite verses - I am a work in progress :D
We are in the home stretch with the water main issues. Hooked up to the city water line again and no longer attached to our neighbours water. They just have to come and do some back filling on the huge holes they had to dig on the side of our driveway. Needless to say, I'm doing laundry as I type as we have a huge back log.
Off to church this morning and then it's family pasta sauce making day. We bought 50 pounds of Roma tomatoes and other veggies for the sauce from a local farmer to make the sauce. I'm allergic to oregano, basil, thyme, rosemary - basically all the aromatic herbs - so we have to make our own. We have a great production line that gets it all done in about an hour and a half and that gives us about 40 large yogurt containers of sauce to freeze and enjoy until we make next summer's batch. Have already frozen my 50 pounds of blueberries so we are no doubt going to be tight on freezer space for a little bit, but it's all worth it!
Have a glorious day and thanks for popping in today!
Just Be You
