2 months ago I was on CDD FB Gallery group and met a lovely lady named Jennifer.
She commented on a card that I had made for the "IFTL" project. We continued with our conversation and she told me that she was a card keeper for FB group called "Cards For Kids"
in Memory of Dalton Dingus. (You can read more about it HERE)
I told her about the "IFTL" project. Well she asked me if I wanted to join so I did! 
Now, let me take you to the beginning....
Before meeting Jennifer I wanted to continue to make cards for kids but I wanted to join a group of card keepers. But not just any group. It was important that the lord would lead me where he needed me too be. I had prayed about this for several months and even when Jennifer had invited me, I remember telling her that I would think about it. So I went to the lord again and asked him if this where he needed me to be. I waited and then I reached out to Jennifer and said YES!
I felt this overwhelming and unexplainable joy, so I immediately knew that is where the lord needed me to be. (He had answered....)  
Sorry about the long post but it is important to me and I waned to share with all of you.
So, I have 8 kiddos (5 boys & 3 girls), I even get to see them post a picture of my cards and thanking me on the FB group as well as to get to know their parents. I am extremely HAPPY with this joyful journey!! I hope to add on more kiddos.....
So I started with the wavy card base from SVG Cutting file, I then made another layer and
adjusted the size. I used the ADORABLE Bee image that I won over at 2 cute ink , which I uploaded on my portrait and colored using the same software. I used the print n' cut and offset feature (Don't you just love that feature). I added pink glitter to the heart as well as the flower.
I added pearls on both of my flowers. Now, the pink flowers were sent to me by
my bloggie friend Shirl! Thank you Shirl!
I completed my Bee card with the Bee-utiful sentiment from CDD's Punny stamp set
and added a few sequins!!
Oh! I forgot to mention her name....

Here are my 3 cards for my 3 (girls) kiddos ...

I made a Mini Journal w/ a Bookmark!
I used the School Zone Stamp Set.
(You can purchase them HERE )

When researching to make something with a school theme,
I came across mini journals.
But I wanted to use the supplies that I already had in hand,
so I made my own journals with my measurements.
I used Print N' Cut feature and the Super CUTE 
"Back To School Friends" file from TCBJ .
I made my little own blackboard and used white ink with the
Super COOL sentiment... A+ Teacher!
And you now I ALWAYS add a touch of cuteness,
so I added glittered dots and Berries Jubilee Trendy Twine.
Get a look at my Super Cute bookmark!
I found the pencil ribbon over at Michaels dollar bin.
This stamp set comes with this adorable worm image,
which I used on the inside pages.
Get a look at the Super cute sentiment......

Happy Birthday!!!

I was asked to make a birthday card for my neighbor's daughter.
 The birthday girl loves Cupcakes. Who doesn't love!
For the base of my card, I started with a Deconstructed Sketch
I printed my cupcake image on white cardstock,
On the Cupcake, I glittered the cherry and added tiny white pearls.
In my scrap box I found a piece of the cupcake pattern paper, added pink flowers and
a turquoise tag. With a white gel pen I doodled around my card and added pretty enamel dots.
And since it is a Birthday card I stamped "Happy Birthday"!
