CC&S #364

Hello! I hope everyone is doing well, as well as we all can during this time. I've been trying to make more cards to encourage my friends and family lately.It's been difficult to find inspiration and desire to make anything. I know this is hard on all of us. The other day I dropped off my mom's weekly grocery order and she stepped out on her front porch as I was getting into my car, she was crying. It's so hard to see this and not be able to physically comfort her. I'm sure I'm not the only one dealing with an elderly parent feeling sad. So back to the card... stamps are from the Ton (floral image ) and SSS (sentiment) . I made another card for this challenge not knowing which way to go with the design, so I'll be playing along this week too. I hope you will join us, it may take your mind off things for a bit. Be safe everyone.

Hello! What a week it's been. I won't mention the "you know what" as we are all stressed enough. I'm still working , I work for a retina practice and we handle sight threatening conditions.. so we can stay open. I'm trying to do anything to calm my nerves, so tonight in my neighborhood under the cover of darkness ... there was a random carding. I put a card I made in a clear bag and taped it to friends front doors. I posted a cryptic message about it on my facebook page. My friends enjoyed the fun surprise. We could all use a bit of fun these days. Consider sending a card to a friend or 2. Thanks for stopping by. PS: sorry I used another mythical stamp this week.. I just really felt this was funny and who doesn't need a laugh right now. 


Hello! I'm back to share a fun card for our anything goes challenge. I've been a little behind with my card making recently. I'm hoping to catch up soon. How are all of you? I'm a little stressed, so I've been binge watching things about the royal family, old stuff, new stuff, really old stuff... just whatever pops up . Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello! Welcome back. Here is my card for this week's color challenge. I used this fun stamp/die from MFT. What a week it's been. I'm sure everyone has heard enough stressful information in the last week or few weeks depending where you live. I'm in NW Indiana , bordering Chicago. So I'm instead going to tell you a funny sorry about my kid... the 18 .year old. My goofy kid has been saving his paycheck and purchased himself an Ultra saber ( fanciest light saber , yep the star wars kind) , lights up and has sound too, well little brother purchased a cheaper one. During one of their nightly battles in the front yard ( keeping neighbors entertained) 18yr old hit brother's light saber and broke it... little brother then jabbed 18yr old in the chin with broken light saber accidently . Well the 18yr old needed stitches in his chin so off to the ER we went (this was 2 weeks ago) . Since he was 18 the nurse asked him what happened..... " fighting an epic battle for the fate of the galaxy " was the response the nurse got. It made his night, he laughed so hard and said "kid that was just what I needed" . SO I hope that brought a smile to your face today. It sure made my coworkers laugh when they heard it. Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello! It's been a whirlwind of emotions here the last 2 weeks. One of my close friends was diagnosed with lung cancer that spread to her brain... non smoker 49 years old. She has had the brain tumor removed and awaiting the plan for the lung mass. I've tried to be creative during this time, but it's been really hard. I have tons of new supplies to play with, so I should be crafting round the clock right now... maybe soon. This card was made using stamps from Wplus9 Most Wonderful set. I'm a sucker for a good snowman stamp or die. Thanks for stopping by today and happy crafting .

Hello! Hope everyone is doing well since last week. I've been working hard on my clean up /clean out . I'm trying to reduce the amount of things in our house... I said house not my craft room! Because that's not happening. I want to be better organized, and less stressed . My craft supplies bring me lots of joy and happiness, so they are staying . In fact while I said I was going to try to use my new purchases before buying more... how could I say no to this cute guy? He is from the mythical grumblings set from TE. I love him! I hope you will join us this week for a fun sketch challenge. Be back soon.

Hello! New month new color challenge! This fun color combination gave my the perfect excuse to use the rose botanicuts from the greetery. I'm just a wee bit obsessed with the greetery right now. Dies all cut from this weeks colors, I added a bit of ink on the edges of the roses for interest ( they looked a little flat) sentiment is PTI and finished it off with a couple studio katia crystals. I loved how this turned out so much I changed up the colors and die cut a bunch more roses, planning on making lots of cards with this layout. I hope you will join us this week.
