"Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his fave always." Psalm 105:4
"I can do everything through Him who gives me strength." Philippians 4:13
It is only when I rely on myself I fall totally flat on my face.
Now you may be asking what any of this has to do with a Monday meal idea... well, here is a recipe :) This is one of my daughter's favorites!
Chow Mein Hotdish
1 lb ground beef, browned
1 can chicken rice soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
chow mein noodles
Pour into a casserole dish, cover with chow mein noodles and bake at 350' for 30 minutes.
Have a blessed Monday -K

Yesterday my dear daughter invited 4 girls for a day of fun to celebrate her birthday and let's face it, a last bash before school starts again. (so not ready...)
Today, my dear son is inviting 4 friends (along with a younger brother for his younger brother - read that again :) ) to enjoy a day of fun and to celebrate his birthday and freedom before school starts... hence I have nothing to post today ! I will be back with projects, favorites, etsy updates etc. Stay tuned...

When finished you will have one rough, torn side and one straight side.
Step 2: start folding the strip in "pleats", making sure to form it into a circle as you go with the rough, torn side on the outside of the flower (not in the center)
When you have folded it completely it should resemble this picture here...
Step 3: Open up your folded flower
Step 4: place adhesive on the inside of the strip, not the torn side. All the way along the paper.
Step 5: refold your flower, this time it should just kind of fall into place as you have already made the creases and folds and the adhesive will hold it all together.
Step 6: you could just add a brad or button at this time but I tore a small circle to use as part of the center of my flower and adhered with more adhesive. Pretty intelligent I know :)
Step 7: Use a sharp tool, this is from Stampin Up! to make holes to attach a button with, or if you like a brad.
Step 8: Use some embroidery floss or thread to attach the button, sewing all the way through will aid in keeping the flower together also.
Here is the finished product.
Hope you enjoyed this attempt of a tutorial and bad photography... who knows there may be more some day!

supplies: Versamark with cross stamp from Stampin Up! Refuge and Strength set for background. Really Rust ink from SU!, Stamps from: Our Daily Bread - Scripture collection 1 and Flourished Christian symbols. MM spiral journal book - 5th avenue; nestabillities and SU! puncturing tool
I am hoping to do a tutorial on the flower, not that it is anything amazing I just know I like to see how things are done when I happen on something on the great world wide web.
the card features my favorite bible verse: "Fear not for I am with you, be not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand." Isaiah 41:10

a card I made to send to friends of ours that let us stay at their house while we were at Vikings Training camp...
a sneak peak of some jewelry I finished but can't take a picture of that is worthy of it...
