You're A Star

Here's a simple card I threw together a few weeks ago, in an attempt to use up scraps and other supplies I have in my stash.  I have, like, a million scrapbook chipboard letters that I don't think I'll ever get into an album, so I'll try to use them up on some cards.  Truely, nothing special, just something simple and easy.  Gotta love that when life is crazy.

It's been a difficult week for me, let's just suffice it to say, I'm getting tired of crazy broadcast executives that make stupid decisions.  Broadcast executives that make hiring decisions.  This is the first week that I've literally, seriously, questioned my faith and if God is really listening to my prayers.  I'm really thinking His promises don't include me.  I know, I know, foolish thinking.  And I think the rational, intelligent side of me knows that, but boy, have the two of us been having some words this week. Add onto all this working what feels like 24/7, my thinking is irrational at best, LOL.  Faith is a journey, and right now, my faith journey is off-course and out-of-whack.  He knows it, I've confessed it, and I'm dealing with it.  Thank you for your understanding and love in the meantime!

I don't have any time to chat more than I already have.  I have to work again this morning, and I need to get my head wrapped around it.  I've invited my parents over for a turkey dinner later today, so I've got much to do. And one of these hours I've got to say hello to Eldest Son who got home late last night.  I hope I get to see him before tomorrow when he has to go back.  That's why my head isn't in the mood to work today.  It would be wonderful to spend some time with him instead of working again.

Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend!



  1. Hang in there, Amy!
    Found something on this morning: "when we reflect on our growth in the Christian life, we recognize that growth in integrity rarely comes quickly or painlessly. Rather, God works in us over extended periods of time and through diverse circumstances. Each season provides new challenges and new resources for growth in integrity. How would you describe the season of life you are in right now? What unique opportunities for growth does this season provide?"

  2. Nice card!
    Give your son a hug and enjoy the time with your parents!

  3. really like the card--the colors are SO you--and how you're making opportunities to do what you love, like having your parents over for dinner, even though you're crazy busy and a bit cooked from life.

    you can let go. you're being held by the everlasting arms (deut. 33:27)

  4. I adore your card Amy! Hang in my Grandmother used to say.....This too shall pass......

  5. Amy your "Scrap Stash Saturday" has inspired me. I am alway amazed at the great cards you put together with you scraps and I have a huge box so this past Saturday I created a box to organize my cards by theme. I used my scraps to cover cardboard and then other scraps to make labels for the tabs. Keep giving us inspiration and know “If you look at what you have in life, you’ll always have more. If you look at what you don’t have in life, you’ll never have enough”. You have so many wonderful things in you life. Take care.
