Crafty weekend

Those are the best kind of weekends for me. I received some new goodies so of course I had to play right? Of course you said "Absolutely". It was nice and always a great way to relieve any of the work week stresses.

I've spent the last few weeks making cards for a crafty friend who was going through Breast Cancer and just finished her final Chemo treatment. These cards are for her to give out to other Cancer Patients that she is or has gone through treatment with. Hopefully, through these cards, we can bring some sunshine to their lives. That's the hope anyways. These are just a few of the ones that I did over the weekend.

Hello, thanks for stopping by. I've spent the past couple of weeks making cards for a Children's Hospital. A friend of mine asked if I would be interested in joining in to make some cards to help cheer up sick Children. Of course the only response that I could think of was "Absolutely". Isn't this the best part of our hobby. Bringing a smile to someones face and I can't think of anyone who may need that more than a sick child. This project was a lot of fun and a little challenging trying to cover the different age groups and wanted to be sure I had some for each group. I think I'm going to continue on with this as it has brought so much joy to be able to do this for them. Thank you to my friend Josephine for asking me to join in. I had so much fun making them.

It's been a crafty sort of weekend which in my book is the best kind. lol. I've been busy creating cards to build up my stash as it has really dwindled.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Dreaming of Spring

I have to admit, it hasn't been as cold as previous years but that doesn't stop me from dreaming of Spring...a time where the flowers are starting to come back in full bloom.  The weather has more warmer days than cooler and of course you can't wait to spend more time outside.

This set is a combination of some new goodies and some oldies but definitely still good.  I love this little sweetie.  I changed the flower in her hand to match the tulips that are in full bloom.  The tulips, fence and wagon are from Heartfelt Creations the little girl is a Magnolia.

Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting.

Happy New Year!!!  I hope you all had a Wonderful Christmas and praying for 2019 to be a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year.  My New Years Resolution this year is to work on this Blog a little more than I did in 2018.  I made lots of cards and did a little scrapbooking but was too lazy to upload to my blog.  I vow to get better at that. lol.

So 2018 did have one big change for me.  I finally quit smoking.  I've smoked for over 30 years so for me this was huge.  I did it completely on my own with no help and of course everyone thought I would go back but I'm happy to say that I have been smoke free since Feb 19, 2018 and I'm so happy that I did it.  For me it was just time.   So here's to a healthier 2019.

Now that the Christmas cards have been mailed out, I can share  some of those here.   Penny Black seems to have won my heart this year and this card was inspired by one that I had seen.  I changed it up but looking at this card it reminds me so much of my childhood Christmas's.  So many wonderful memories there.  Here are just a couple of the cards that I did this year.

A commissioned card for a friend

I know it's been a while since I have posted and I am seriously going to try and get better about sharing on my blog.

The card that I'm sharing today was made for a girl at work to give to a friend of hers.  Every once in a while, she asks for a card for this friend.  My only problem is that I am my own worst critic.  If I'm making for myself to give away, I'm usually ok but when someone buys from me...well thats when I get critical. lol

I do love this little cutie though and I'm happy overall with how the card came out.  She's a Digital Stamp from Sherri Baldy and she is just the cutest little thing and so fun to color.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Happy Crafting!!!!!!
