CC&S #421

Hello! Welcome back. I hope you are all doing well. It's been an unusual week here. There has been a 12 yr old autistic boy missing in our area for the last week fairly close to my home. We have seen and heard the search party for days on end. He went missing along the riverbank. I'd love to tell you that he was found safely, but that isn't the case. I'm just relieved the family will have some closure. So who has some happy news to share?  Deets on the card: branch die is from Hero arts, sentiment is from Taylored expressions. Die cut the branch from watercolor paper , cut some extra flowers to layer over top. Thanks for stopping by today.

 Hello! I hope you are all doing well. I've had a busy weekend, laundry pile was very big. I was able to get some planting done in my garden. I didn't get as far as I wanted, lots of distractions. My oldest son's friend's younger brother needed an urgent heart surgery on Friday and he wanted to talk to me about it, so mom had to listen and comfort. He is home and doing well now! My darling hubby made them dinner and cookies , I delivered. On Saturday I had planed a full day of yard/garden work, didn't happen. I take a 7am aqua fitness and an 8am aqua bootcamp on Saturday... 1st classes almost did me in. I managed to get several things planted/moved, but it's a work in progress. We had a very large tree removed from our backyard a couple years ago and my mostly shade plant garden isn't doing well. I've been moving things or giving them to friends with shade gardens, but I still have a way to go. Since my flowers aren't all planted I made a flower card. Stencils and die are pinkfresh studio and sentiment is TE.

 Hello! Thanks for stopping by today. I have been enjoying the mini slim card size a lot recently, It's perfect for adding cash/check inside. This card was made for my sister in law who is having a girl in June. I hosted a "sprinkle" for her 2 weeks ago, so I can share the card now that she's seen it. I hope you all have a wonderful day. 


 Hello! I'm back with another fun Christmas card for our Anything Goes challenge. I've been using a lot of non-traditional colors recently, trying to sketch my creativity a bit more. This fun stencil from TE is perfect for trying all sorts of different color combinations. Thanks for stopping by today.
