With times changing, everyone being so busy, and everything being at our fingertips, we sometimes get caught up in the newest things, latest fads, and keeping up with the Jones! I long for those days of old, when time spent together wasn't just watching the clock so you could get your kid to bed, our out the door, but a opportunity to actually take your time and enjoy the person your with. The time together is always special. My son often says that we always seem to rush him and he is right! My goal for the remainder of this year, is not to keep asking "Is it done yet?" rushing the process, like I did when my Mom and I made those cool yummy treats, but to wait patiently, do what needs to be done. And when the waiting is through, the end result will be well worth the wait.
Trusting that in your lives today that you are enjoying each other. That those times when life seems so crazy that you will pause for a few moments. Relax and maybe sit and enjoy a nice cool ice cream. During the eating process you will not rush but enjoy every bit and think that life can be viewed through looking at and eating a cool summer treat!
The card I made for this post is using digital images from Deedee's Digis store and is called "Taste & See" and can be found here. Remember you receive a Free Gift with a $10.00 purchase. Check it out!
I had so much fun making this card. I was so happy the day that we went to the Mall and I came across this scrapbooking paper. I told my hubby that I just had to have it because it matched so well with Deedee's Image and he just laughed. I know that we are on a budget but just had to have it and lucky for me the paper pad was only $ 9.00 Someone must have been looking down on me that day because I haven't been buying a lot of supplies lately, but so wanted this one. So I got this paper and I am so happy that I did because it compliments this sweet little girl and her ice cream so well.

Just wanted to share a little about something that I have been working on for the past few days. I have been involved with sending cards to the Cards For Kids campaign that is organized by Jennifer McGuire and her team for the past year or so. I needed to get some cards made and out before the end of this month. So Deedee of Deedee's Digis had asked if the team members had a request for images. I truly believe that this was my opportunity to share my heart with her and the need to have images that could be used quickly to make a bunch of cards. I was elated when she produced not one image, but twelve in honor of those kids who are sick with Cancer or other terminal diseases. I was so blessed that I had actually cried, but it gets better. She is selling these images at her store with all proceeds going to the National Childhood Cancer Foundation. Wow what a wonderful gesture!
To read more about why Deedee decided to do this read her post on her blog here. Be sure to check it out because she is giving away a set of these for her Blog Candy! Check my sidebar to see this amazing set.
Cancer has touched the lives of so many and the need for a cure is stronger than ever before, so why not purchase "Cuties for a Cure" and show your support. Please check back in tomorrow when I will be revealing some of my cards made with this set. Throughout the remainder of this month I will be sharing some cards that I made for this worthy cause. Be sure to check my sidebar or the link above to find out all the info to participate in Cards For Kids.
Sorry this post was so long. It was suppose to go out yesterday, but due to a delay, I had to combine yesterday and today's post. I will try not to do this again! Hoping that you will drop by again to see some yummy eye candy!
Hugs & Blessings
