Never Stop Dancing!!!

My husband  and I both love the song written by  Mark D. Sanders and Tia Sillers, and recorded by country singer Lee Ann Womack.

Here are some of the lyrics.

I Hope You Dance 

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder,
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger,
May you never take one single breath for granted,
GOD forbid love ever leave you empty handed,
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance....I hope you dance.

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance,
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin' might mean takin' chances but they're worth takin',
Lovin' might be a mistake but it's worth makin',
Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter,
When you come close to sellin' out reconsider,
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance....I hope you dance.

I sincerely hope that no matter what life throws at you, even cancer, that you DANCE!!!!!!!

Supplies used: card stock - white, coral; patterned papers - Chevron and Roses in Nostalgia by My Minds Eye; stamps - Never Stop Dancing by Penny Black; ink - Tuxedo Black by Memento; Copic markers; Labels Eight Nestabilities by Spellbinder; ribbon - 3 Girl jam; brad - my stash.

Happy Valentine's Day to all of the ladies today!!  Well, guys too, if you're visiting the  blog.  ;)   Glad to have everyone stop by and if you have a moment leave a comment because it keeps me inspired.

I thought I would design a Valentine for everyone today for Link Up for Pink.  I hope you like it and just want you to know WE Love You!!

I used a pattern paper from a 6x6 paper pad by Carta Bella, Beautiful Moments.  The hearts are a border punch from Martha Stewart that I cut.  The oval die cuts are from Spellbinders, and of course the precious digi, Mable Rose, from Scrapbook Stamp Society, designed by Sherri Baldy and a cutie she is.   
Well, that's it for today and until next time,
Take care and God Bless.

Don't Let It Rain On Your Parade.....

I just received this new stamp set from The Stamps of Life!

When I saw this sentiment I thought it would be perfect for Link Up For Pink.

The reason is that I don't think anyone should let cancer rain on their parade. Don't get me wrong, as a survivor I know how much it stinks to have cancer and go through chemo, etc. But I think the very best thing you can do is to keep on leading your life as normally as possible and keep an upbeat, positive attitude. Show cancer that you are in charge and you're not gonna let it "Rain on Your Parade"!!!!!!!!

Supplies used: card stock - white, pink; patterned paper - Glow from Hello Sunshine by American Crafts; stamps - boots4rain by The Stamps of Life; ink - Tuxedo Black by Memento and Brilliant Blue by Stampin' Up; twine from Yolie; corner rounder - Fiskars; Pop Dots
