Texas-sized Thanks

Last February when I attended the writer's conference, I met a wonderful lady from Texas. She did me a huge favor last week as I'm preparing for the national American Christian Fiction Writer's conference, so I am thanking her with a huge card. I think I may have to hand-carry this one onto the plane.

The roses and leaves were created using the new Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, so I'm entering it in this week's Heart 2 Heart challenge.

All products are CTMH, although the only current things are the "Pair-A-Phrase" stamp set (butterflies, green swirly vines, and the "friend" part of the sentiment) and the Art Philosophy cartridge. I also must give credit where it is due. I completely stamp-lifted this card from Stop and Stamp the Roses. I tried to find the link for the actual post but couldn't. Sorry...go browse!

Now isn't that brown fluffy ribbon adorable? My husband should NEVER leave me alone in Hobby Lobby with extra time and a little extra cash in my pockets. I need more ribbon like a hole in the head, but...yeah. So stinkin' cute! (Shhh, don't tell him, but I got some in pink and red, too.)

One more week to put the final touches on my first three chapters to present to editors and agents. I took them to my writing group tonight and they liked the story. They laughed in the right places, got the heeby-jeebies in the right places, and yelled at me for not having more done. Can't ask for much better than that. However, they are my friends rather than acquisition editors. I'll let you know what the editors/agents have to say in a couple weeks.

Until next time,


  1. S.T.U.N.N.I.N.G. I am so case-ing this!
    Lifting some prayers for your presentation to the editors!

  2. What a gorgeous card! I'm sure the recipient will appreciate it. Thanks so much for sharing your gorgeous creation with us at H2H Challenges! Also, hope your conference goes well!

  3. Beautiful card! Everyone needs a bigger stash of ribbon, ha! Blessings on your presentation of those chapters too!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. You bless me!
