Next Chapter, with Coffee of Course! ;)

Coffee of the Day - Caramel Nut Fudge

A most happy day to all of you!

I am quite the sucker for any and all book and coffee related images. so when I saw this cute digi over at Simply Betty's a while back, there was no resisting! the problem I have when drinking coffee or tea while reading is that I get so consumed with my book that the drink goes quite cold! ;) does that happen to any of you?

the wonderful sentiment I added comes from Create with TLC.  I really feel this way about 2016. I am trying to change attitudes and so many other things that need adjusting about myself. it's time for a new chapter! I am going to embrace the woman God created me to be. I am not going to let other people steal my joy. I am going to let bitterness and old resentments go. I am going to have confidence in who I am (or at least work on it! grins!) I am going to ignore the nay-sayers, but listen to constructive criticism in an effort to better myself. I will strive to LEARN so that I may grow ever stronger. I will treasure who I am and my unique-ness. :)

I just couldn't resist pairing these 2 digis together! I hope you like the results as much as I do. :)

paper is from the Basic Grey Herbs & Honey collection, flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts, little dew drop skittles are by Double Click skittles, and gorgeous lace is vintage.

I'll see you tomorrow! have a fabulous day and thanks so much for stopping by! :)

You go girl~! You raised three wonderful young me.....whenever you find you are losing confidence in who you are....just think what you would tell them if they were feeling that way.

People are going to try and break you down because they are jealous and don't want to see you succeed. Keep doing what you're doing, and don't let what others tell you or what you hear break you down. Stay strong and you will succeed!!!

I don't think I ever get to drink a mug of coffee or tea whilst it is still hot. It sits on my desk forgotten as I get engrossed with what I'm doing. Your card is lovely and I like your idea behind the sentiment. I hope it works for you. Thanklyou for sharing with us at Crafting From The Heart. Hugs ValeryAnne D.T.
