Blessings

I am sharing a card that I made with some new toys and some oldies...
Blessings  
New (to me): stencil (Night Flower), Handwritten Sentiments (Simon Says Stamps)
Old:  Etched Daisy (Hero Arts)

And speaking of "blessings" (from the sentiment), these photos reminded me of all the blessings...
spending time with my love ones
 yummy cruise food

Lastly here is what's coming up...

I will be back on Jan. 24, Friday at  10 am Eastern Time with the Hero Arts Hostess Blog Hop! Start hopping here if you haven't (lots of prized are being offered!)!
NEW stamps, NEW project...lots of fun! Please be sure to stop by.
