Warm Winter Wishes with The Pit Crew


Today the entire Pit Crew are sharing creations with you using the Avocado Arts December kit called Smitten With You with a sneak peek of the January kit called Perfect Blend.

On my card... the snowflake and sentiment are from the December kit. The cup and steam are from the January kit. You can't go wrong with either one... they are both so cute and fun!

Take a look at the December kit.....



Keeping it short and sweet today! I am typing this up late on Friday night. It has been a long and emotional day.... as I am sure it was for you too.

Our son, Carver, is in Kindergarten. My husband and I had both attended his Christmas party at school this morning. When we left... we heard the news of the Connecticut shootings. I think about all of those sweet little faces we saw and I just can't imagine how anyone could do such a thing to those little babies. I also can't imagine how those parents are feeling. I pray that I never have to know first hand what it feels like to lose a child.

We took Carver to a Toby Mac concert tonight (the husbands idea) and that was emotional as well. I cried some at the events of the day... and I cried some at the thought of how thankful I am for what God has done for me. It is a sad sad world.... I feel so sorry for people who don't know the joy that comes from a relationship with God. God is joy.. God is love... God is hope... God is light! Without Him... life must be so hopeless and dark!

Okay... back to the hop.... check out all of these ladies/links (listed below)... and make sure to leave a comment so you are entered to win one of these....

Beautiful card, and I feel the exact same way about what happened yesterday.. I can not even begin to understand the heartache the parents must be going through. My daughter is in kindergarten as well, and I feel like she's safe when I leave her at school. Now, I don't know anymore. Sickening feeling.
