Count Your Blessings

Oh my gosh, has it really been two whole weeks since I have posted? School is busier that ever before and I come home exhausted. I have been reading a lot or should I say picking up the book and falling asleep! I did manage to finish Debbie Macomber's newest book, A Turn In The Road which was one of her best. I really enjoyed it. Just what I needed right now, a great light story.

Today we will celebrate Justin's 11th birthday. It seems like yesterday that this little guy and our fourth grandchild was born. Where or where do the years go? Justin, if you see this, stop growing up so fast!

Today's card is made from a Gina K set called Spring Basket. I colored it with my Copics and cut it out with Nestibilities. The ribbon I have had for years and I think it was purchased at Hobby Lobby. I was very happy with the result.

Until next time, Happy trails to you....



  1. Beautiful card, Sheri! Hope you soon get into a routine, and are not quite so sleepy! Hugs...

  2. Sheri, that's a great card. Love the way you colored the flowers and the ribbon is just the right finish to it.

    Hope your work slows down a bit so you can feel a little more rested!!!

  3. I love the colors you used for this beautiful card!! You are one of the blessings that I count in my life!
    I loved A Turn in the Road and agree that it was one of her best books!
    Enjoy your weekend - soon everyday will be a Saturday for you!
