sparkling holiday

happy tuesday to all who are visiting the charmed life blog today. I hope you had a good day no matter what you did or where you were today.

I really had a hectic, crazy day yesterday which is why I didn't post a card. I thought I lost my wallet and it had all my credit cards in it. I called the bank since I was there earlier but they didn't have it.

So, I called a couple of the credit card companies and they advised there were no fraudulent charges posted. that was good news.

I searched all over my house. that was also good since I did some cleaning in the process. I drove back to my church since I was there earlier in the day. no success either at that location.

I was starting to get anxious so I called my good friend, Elaine and asked her to pray. In her prayer, she asked the Lord to let me lay my eyes on the wallet. So. I continued to look and still no success.

Then I called another good friend, Karen and she prayed for God's peace to be on me. I was very anxious at this point. She advised me to put on some worship music and not to worry. She was very confident it would show up.

The music filled my house with such a sweet peace. I listened to a cd from Integrity titled "God will make a way". It seemed appropriate for my situation. But still no wallet.

My husband came home from work and he looked for about an hour, but no success.

I woke up this morning and started looking again. I went through my craft stuff so many times thinking I put it away with something.

well, early this afternoon I walked into my computer room and I went to straighten out the chair. As I did my eyes looked down to the black arm of the chair and there was my wallet. it was stuffed between the chair cushion and the arm. my wallet is black and was easily concealed by the black arm.

I checked this room 4-5 times and was on the computer several times and so was my husband.
I was so excited and called both my friends who prayed with me. They were as excited as I was.

Well, onto my card for today. I found some stuff in my stash that I forgot I had and wanted to use some of it on a card. I used the sketch from the mojomonday blog.
julee comes up with such awesome layouts each monday.

my trees are from an old stampin-up simply scrappin kit called "sparkling holiday". I think the trees look like the new patterned pines set.

my designer paper is from basic grey the fruitcake collection. I have used this on several christmas cards and really like the looks of the paper.

I also found an epoxy christmas sticker and used that to complete the card.

well, its a wrap for another day my friends. if you have any prayer needs drop me an email. God hears and answers prayers.
