The Cutting Cafe and Wine Glasses

Hello! Do you all need a great idea for those Happy NEW YEAR cards? Well, I have the perfect idea for you! This week at THE CUTTING CAFE, Regina asked us to used either the WINE GLASS SHAPED CARD or the WINE BOTTLE SHAPED CARD... I have used the WINE GLASS SHAPED CARD along with one of the sentiments to make mine. Isn't it cute? I had a SU set that had the little bubble stamp (Lifes a Breeze) to make my wine glass look bubbly!! I also added a little Glossy accents to add to the effect. Hope you like it---and hope you all have a fabulous HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

On Wednesday the teams inspiration will be up on the THE CUTTING CAFE BLOG, so if you get the chance to stop on over, you will get lots of great inspiration and ideas--and if you comment-you can be in the draw to win 3 sets of your own from THE CUTTING CAFE!
Thanks for stopping by today!

Pastor Appreciation with a new FRESH BREWED DESIGNS DIGI!!

Hi all! I am so excited to share this with you today...
I had been asked by a church member to make the Pastor Appreciation card for the Pastor of our Church...there is a little pressure that comes along with that...what if the other members don't like what I made? So, I had asked HEATHER from FRESH BREWED DESIGNS if she had any ideas to use for a Pastor Appreciation card...she went all out and designed me a digital image!! I just can't even begin to THANK her enough!! It is funny, I have never really even MET Heather...but she is so dear to me, I truly feel so blessed to have met her through my blog..she is one of the kindest, fun and outgoing, talented, and most wonderful gals to know!!
I are ready to see the digi right?  Well, here we go, here is the digi... isn't it just the most perfect digi for Pastor Appreciation?!! I just love how that little sheep is looking up to his Shephard!

And, here is the card I have made with the Shephard and Sheep digi from FRESH BREWED DESIGNS...

The inside says: we are so thankful HE gave us YOU!

I think they will like it, I am not so worried anymore!
I also am making some little sheep for the kids to make, and have made ones for the adults to write a personal note to the Pastor on,  and hand in during the collections...

I hope this makes a special day for our Pastor...I really love his way of teaching...he does a lot of explaining and it really helps everything make sense!
This new digi is in the store NOW---HERE. (and a few more awesome digis coming this next week!)
