Simply Sunday Challenge: Inspired Heart plus Treats!

Inspired Heart Cartridge (This Challenge's PRIZE)
Howdy! (HOW-Deeeeeeeee is how we say it in the South--lol)! I'm SOOOO glad you here today with me! Thank you for joining me for another Simply Sunday Challenge today!
First of all, I want to announce the winner of The Pack Your Bags Challenge! #10 Vicki of . Vicki wins the new Quarter Note Cricut Cartridge and a Guest Design Spot here at Getting Cricky! YAY! Congrats Vicki. Make sure you email me so I can get your prize to you and schedule your guest design spot!Here is Vicki's winning card--isn't it adorable???
I hope you are all having a very blessed Sunday today, regardless of what your circumstance may be. Will you do me a favor? Will you please stop whatever you are doing..close your eyes, and clear your mind. Get up, and go find a mirror. Any mirror will do, as long as you can be by  yourself for just two minutes.
Look in that mirror and say, I'm beautiful. I'm blessed. My heart is healed. I will choose to make this day the very best that I can. Yes, I'm beautiful and I'm valuable. This is your heart song--a song you should sing to your heart every single day. I'm worth it. Say this as many times as you need to until your heart feels lighter. Awesome!!!! You have not only inspired your own heart, but just watch and see how many hearts you inspire today (even if it's only your cat or mean ol husband-wink). heehee
My challenge for this Sunday is "Inspired Heart". Each one of our hearts are's just depends on what you are letting inspire your heart. Choose to let forgiveness and love inspire your heart today. No one can make you feel bad, hurt, victimized, or scarred unless you give them the power to do so. Today, take that power back. Choose to forgive, overcome, to love, and to inspire. Your life is one of your own design--make it the best--make it the life you want to live.
What inspires my heart today? Being a fisher of men. If you have ever seen this fish symbol, it's a symbol of the fish that Jesus and his disciples saw everyday on their boat. However, instead of just choosing to fish for food, they chose to leave their boats, and fish for men. What? Yes fish for men's hearts and souls.
Be Ye a Fisher of Men--that is what inspires my heart today at this hour. To use my words and actions, to show His spirit and love to others in their time of need....not my time of need. Pressure and force are not words that belong to a Fisher of Man....just Inspire the Hearts of others in all you do. That is my inspired heart today. Here is my card I made using the Inspired Heart Cartridge and Robyn's Faithful Sayings stamp set for my oldest son Jasper. I know he will love it! He is very close to the Lord, and this will mean alot to him. He is 11. Isn't this card awesome? I love it, because it is simply but just fabulous--plus it only took me maybe seriously 10 minutes to make and photograph! Simple is sooooooooooo my favorite! lol!
