Shabby Chic card

Hey there my delightful friends and family!!
Well I can't believe how fast this week is going by!! There is never a dull minute around here that's for sure. I don't mind and I'm definitely not complaining, I'm thankful for all the things the Lord has and is allowing me to do. One of the young women (our assistant pastor's wife, Bridget) in our church is going to be taking over two of my "jobs" (shopping for and preparing the snack inbetween Sunday services) and I'm very grateful to have a little extra help. You'd be surprised how much time that involves! It would take me between 45 minutes to an hour just to prepare and getting to town was another 2-3 hours out of my day! I'm secretly hoping that Bridget will be sharing her fabulous cookie making skills with us. Oops! I guess that's not a secret anymore... :-)

Here is my card for 3 different challenges

#1 and #2 challenges are from Christian Paper Crafts
