  3. Thanks for hosting! I’m sharing #s 121, 122, & 123 today. Those God-painted sunsets you’ve been having in TN are absolutely gorgeous! The sunflower He made is also stunning! He must’ve given you a great talent for growing things. That’s not a skill He gave to me at all. I kill everything lol! We’d love to have you stop by & share on Crafty Creators Link Party this week! It’s open Thursdays at 6am through Mondays at 11:59pm. You’re welcome to share link parties on that party. Happiness is Homemade is open Mondays through Thursdays as well.
