I'm a Winner!

How cool is that???!!!?!?! Krystyn at Someday I'll Get There had her first ever giveaway and I W.O.N. So what did I win? Why am I so excited? Just take a look. She made these fabulous cards. That's right.....made them. I am facinated by that fact because I have absolutely no creative talent whatsoever! And Krystyn made seven different cards for birthday, well wishes, encouragement, and of course....lovey cards. PLUS a journal (ok, she didn't make this journal but it's still awesome); which I plan to put to good use tracking my prayers. Aren't the beautiful???




Krystyn has an etsy shop where she sells her original creations. Click on the link HERE to see what's available. I'm sure she'd be happy to create something just for you!

It's wonderful how God has given each of us talents and gifts. Krystyn, Robin, Laurie, and Sara are each so blessed with artistic talent. Yet, their talents are uniquely different, just like each of them. Praise and thank God today, This Day for the unique person He made you, the talents and gifts He has blessed you with, and use them for His glory.

Peace and Joy,
Susan


Romans 12:5-9 (NIV) 5so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. 6We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man's gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith. 7If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; 8if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.

Enjoy your cards and journal. I'm putting them in the mail to you tonight.

BTW, you spelled my name wrong @ the end of your post - but don't worry, it happens ALLLLLL THE TIME.

Wow, those are such beautiful cards!

You had asked me a few days ago about cornhole - Basically you have 2 boards with 1 big whole in each the you line up across from each other. I'm not sure how far apart, though. Anyway, you're on a team and the object is to get the beanbag in the whole. You get 3 points for that, and 1 for landing it on the board (if it bounces off, it doesn't count). The object is to be the first team to reach 21, and the way we play, if you go over, you have to keep subtracting until you have EXACTLY 21.

It's a very fun game, and we play it at all of our outdoor parties

Oops I spelled "hole" wrong. That's embarrassing. lol

Krystyn - I fixed the spelling of your name. So sorry!

Jessica - It seems like it's a day of misspellings. I didn't even catch it. -- And the game. I do know it. We just call it something different here. lol
