Christmas in JULY

I was doing some blog hopping, and came across Unscripted Sketches website.  They have a fun bingo game going on for the month of July.  Click above for more details, oh and it includes a give away! Will you be joining in the reindeer games??? I will!

'N.spirational' Swap

So I joined another swap over on the Scrap Beach.  This was a scripture tag swap hosted by Melinda, and we were suppose to pick our favorite scripture and create a 6 x 3 tag.  I liked working on these tags.  Not only were they a 'N.spiration' to myself, but will also 'N.spire' who they're sent to!  Hope you like them.... Leave me a comment and let me know.
Smiles & love
