What matters most ...

It has been one of those weeks ... you know the kind I'm talking about. Where everything seems to fall apart all at once. You find yourself frustrated over the simplest setbacks and you feel like the whole world is out to get you. You can't seem to draw yourself out of "the blues". Then the ringing of the telephone and a little 'hello' and suddenly the clouds part. The darkness that has pulled you under no longers blurs your vision. You don't realize your head lifting and your shoulders straighten. Within moments a big grin spreads across your face. It's a so clear ... what matters most is that I have the love of family to hold on to me and bring me up. When I wake up in the morning and open my eyes the sun may not be shining but I know my world will be bright. And as I wait for my little ones to come 'snuggle' (aka-giggle) I will remember what matters most!

I took a 'lunch hour' (or two) this afternoon and put these cards together using various products from different companies including Stampin Up and Close to my Heart. I have become addicted to the Big Shot and use the Top Note die for everything. (Marie - this dies is a must have ... I used it on the page with the tree that you liked).

Thank you friends for blessing me with new friendships.
Samantha <3
