I know I haven't been here in a while. I'm still crafting a little bit, but as we inch closer
to graduation time it will get better and better. :)
My quote is compliments of Pinterest. I will always be there to support my son, but I certainly won't always be able to fix it. Sometimes it helps just knowing you don't have to face things alone.
I woke yesterday morning thinking I smelled something burning and stupidly thought, that must be my next door neighbors house. I jumped up and rushed downstairs after a few more minutes of drifting in la-la land...where I discovered my teenager in the kitchen cooking breakfast. Unfortunately, he hasn't cooked it in a long time (for a full breakfast I would guess possibly last year this time) and he thought those eggs would take much longer than they actually did. Uh, he had to trash the first attempt and start over. But eventually we sat down to a full breakfast together. It is just the kind of thing to make you smile. He made me a card. I like that part the best. He even found a beautiful poem to put inside. I am a sentimental old gal. :)
OK, well, on to these cards. I really have been a little stressed lately. I just didn't have a lot of time to focus on cards as I would like to, so I tried my best to keep them simple. My good friend Helen over at
crocheted these gorgeous flowers and I LOVE them! Of course the main problem is once
I use them, they are GONE! OK, Helen, I need some more!!!! :)
That is why I selected these beautiful papers and decided to make them 5 1/2X 5 1/2 squares.
I added a brad, embossed the flower stem and greeting and I was done.
The first card was a special order, but I just can not take too many of these any more!
So it is the only one of it's kind I made this time (very unusual for me)
I forgot to shoot the inside of all of them.
The papers were all beautiful flocked, glittered, embossed...mostly DCWV.
