Just the Way You Are

I can't believe it's Wednesday already. I hope you are having a great week so far. My girls' transition to school has gone smoothly. Even my youngest didn't complain about going to kindergarten and she usually much prefers to stay home, esp when it's cold outside.

Speaking of my girls, I just heard this song, Just the Way You Are, yesterday for the first time and immediately loved it. I know it's a love song between a man and a woman, but the words are perfect to sing to my girls (Except for one word that I would replace with "silly" instead of "sexy" for them. LOL). And my middle child cried when I played it for them. She's so tender-hearted and it just melts my heart.

Today's card uses my latest GinaK stamps, Gleefully Yours. The papers are Pink Paislee.

Have a Rockin' Good time

And this is one BIG reason I have a "rockin' good time" with life and for which I thank God everyday (Photo courtesy of my friend, Laura Campbell, owner of Layers of Color):
And the talented Bekka Freeken is previewing today two sets of dies that I designed for Spellbinders. She does amazing work with die cuts.
