Life is What You Bake It

Getting some time in with things I love, and playing along with Laurie
at PTI and Framing Sentiments and Images.

First time using PTI's Life is What You Bake It. Love the image of that sweet sentiment
in the pile of flour! 
Frame is Double Ups: Rectangles

Thank you for all your prayers and comments for my mom.
The services are over and my time is suddenly empty and open.
I was blessed with an amazingly talented mom. One who showed me how to be a mom,
and how to show God's grace and love to everyone.
Her gift was the Gift of Helps. No one went without if she knew of a need.
After my dad died she managed their 110 acre ranch; horses, fruit trees and all!
As I always do, I searched the scriptures for comfort, and
God gave me this scripture, after she died,  and I'd like to pass it on to you.

"but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus,
who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light
through the gospel. 2 Tim. 1:10. 
Thank you Lord. We will see our loved ones again!



  1. Fabulous card is a FUN set to play with! I am glad your mom is fully healed and home now with our Savior, but I know the ache is still there in missing her. I'm glad your faith is strong and that you know you will see her again. Still sending hugs and prayers your way my friend! :0)

  2. A stunning card Nancy! Love the bold colors and the vintage feel. I'm so glad you're leaning on the strength of God to carry you through this sad time. You found the perfect verse for comfort and hope!

  3. Nancy love love love this, you are magic when it comes to embossing. I am keeping you and your family in my thoughts, I am so sorry my friend. xo

  4. Nancy, I am encouraged that your hope is in the Lord and praying for your continued peace in the sorrow of losing your Mom.
    I came to tell you how much I love your bold design and fabulous take on this challenge. Love and hugs~

  5. Now this is one fabulous card! I adore those wooden spoons strung up with the twine and tiny bloom. The colors are fresh and happy, so pretty! You have been in my thoughts and prayers. Your mother sounds like she was a truly wonderful woman and a blessing to many. God rest her soul.

  6. Love the bright, bold colors and the sentiment nestled in a handful of flour! Your mother sounds like an amazing person and a wonderful mother and friend. I'm so glad you have so many happy memories to help you through this difficult time.

  7. I love your card (as I do with most of your work)'s a perfect take on Laurie's challenge. Now I am thinking I should have bought the stamp set you've used. I am very sorry for your loss of your Mom! I know what that feels like even tho my Mom has been gone for 6.5 years. I still miss her. I am happy you find comfort in the Lord during this time of need. Happy memories will soon prevail as time passes on...hang in there. ;)

  8. This is truly creative genius and such a fun touch of whimsy with the spoons on the string!! I just love this card creation!
    I am so sorry for your loss. Your Mother sounds like she was so full of strength and beauty and creativity...and passed on her legacy to you! And scriptures are the only place to go for comfort...I pray that God's word continues to bring you much peace and comfort and also joy in the days ahead.

  9. This is very cute! I love how it looks like spilled flour.
