What Is Normal ?

Now that Christmas is over, back to normal. Right?  And what does that look like?
It seems that our norm always has an element of chaos.  Okay, maybe not chaos.  But definitely not boredom or predictability.  Deep inside I am somewhat glad for that.  My hubby has often said, "Well, at least we have not lived a boring life."  So true.
So now that Christmas is over, it is back to all occasion, birthday, anniversary cards,  etc.  Although I have a few more thank you cards to make for gifts received.

Here is a birthday card I made for my granddaughter:

Digital Stamp is Bugaboo which I colored with Copics.  The sentiment is a stamp in a Birthday set.

Simon Monday - party time
Tuesday Morning Sketch - anything
Sugar Pea - challenge 26 anything
All Sorts - something new (new digital image)
Word Art Wednesday - anything
DigiDesign - celebration
7 Kids College Fund - anything 
Stamploration - CAS optional red

  12. Very cute image and design! Sorry for the late comment. I would like to invite you to link with us again for our first Challenge this year at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you with the encouragement found in 1 John 4:18-19 which tells us, "There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us." Have a blessed day!
