Two Cards, Cotton Candy, and Smores

I thank the Lord each week for giving me strength and wisdom to get through each week, but I thanked Him especially this week since it was such a busy and stressful one. Through various friends' compliments and receiving RAKs from friends I felt that each one was God's way of giving me a hug and for reminding me that He will take care of me and that He is in control.  Besides what I just mentioned, by being able to doing some crafting for swaps helped me get through my week.  I will share my first project this week and the other one next week.  This is the flip card that I made for the tea swap for my friend Robyn that I was paired up with.  The optional theme is to make a card using a blue and white monochromatic theme.  Since Robyn is a big Disney fan I made her Disney themed card by incorporating the optional theme.

Robyn sent me a super cute Hello Kitty themed card.  I love it!  She remembered how much I like purple.

Before I end this post I wanted to share a few pictures from the dinner that my family and I had at Saddle Ranch restaurant at Universal City Walk.  The dinner was very good and our desserts were so much fun.  We saw many guests order a cotton candy tower that we could not resist ordering one.  I have never seen cotton candy this big before. The cotton candy was super fresh since it was fresh.

As a complimentary dessert from the owner (for our cotton candy tower for taking so long to make) we received ingredients to make smores in a fire pit in front of the restaurant.  This was so much fun to do.

I hope that everyone will have a blessed and crafty week ahead.  Thanks for stopping by! 


  1. Hi Colleen! You and Robyn surely had a fun swap! Your cards are awesome! Bet she loved the Disney flip card you made for her and you were all smiles with the HK card she made for you. The sweet treats look scrumptious too.
