1. when I really know that God is talking to me and working in me.
2. my first cup of tea in the morning, especially when my husband makes it for me.
3. eating out.
4. spending time with positive people. (it's so uplifting)
5. running in the early morning when it is still dark and then becoming aware of the day beginning as the sun starts to rise. (awesome and envigorating)

This is one of my favourite designs for a card. I have used it quite a few times for special /milestone birthday cards. It is a simple design but the embellishments (flower and ribbons) make it so pretty for me.
Here is an another example of this card design that I made for my friend's 60th. Also made the little gift box.

Have just placed an order for some stamp sets from Papertey Ink. Can't wait for them to arrive so I can get crafting again. These things have made me very JOYFUL today.

Read a post on Melissa Phillips' blog that spoke to me. These are quotes from her post:
"We as women are so lucky in many, many ways. We have been blessed with the incredible gift of compassion and love....our hearts and hands are wonderful tools for good and can bring so much happiness and joy to those we encounter"
"Creation brings deep satisfaction and fulfillment. We develop ourselves and others when we take unorganized matter into our hands and mold it into something of beauty..."

The best thing anyone can do is eat, drink and enjoy what he has earned. And yet, I realized that even this comes from God. How else could you have anything to eat or enjoy yourself at all? Ecclesiastes 2:24-25

I have been busy with a few cards. Here is a Thank You card I made.
Made this envelope that will hold Christmas photos. Saw this on Leah Fung's blog. There is also a template for the CD envelope.
