Getting Owly....

YAY, I made some cards today! Hopefully, I am getting out of my funk. This little guy was made using the Mojo Monday Sketch. It was a fun one to play with, and I will probably use it again. The stamp is from Clear Dollar Stamps, What a Hoot, and is one of my FABORITE sets. This card also qualifies for a few other Challenges this week, too. The ABC Challenge which was to use Masking, the Fussy And Fancy Challenge which was to use hearts, and the Pink Elephant Challenge which was to use Pink, polka dots and a bow.
Well, it is getting late, so I am headed to bed. Have a WONDERFUL Sunday, everyone! Thanks for stopping by!

Back to Posting...

My last post was HAPPY NEW YEAR!....well, so far, not for me. I lost my beloved Mother on Jan. 14th. She was hospitalized on Jan. 5th and never came home. As many know, she has been suffering for over 4 years with severe emphezema. She has now gone home into the arms of God, and no longer fights for her next breath. I miss her horribly-that is the selfish me, but the daughter who loves her is happy she no longer has to suffer here on earth.
This card was made as a special Thank You for some friends who showed so much love and compassion in the past few weeks.
I hope to get some more made this week, and will share here on my blog. Thanks so much for stopping by...

I hope you all had a WONDERFUL New Year's Eve! I just stayed home and stayed safe....went to dinner and that was about it...LOL!
I apologize for no creativity over the past month! I thought I would get TONS accomplished over Christmas Vaca from school, but OY was I wrong! I had a bit of a spill off a chair FLAT on my tailbone, and haven't done much of anything since! Making Christmas dinner was VERY interesting, to say the least! I know this sounds bad, but if it weren't for Darvocet, I would NEVER have made it thru the past couple of weeks. I dunno what it will be like tomorrow when I go back to work, but it will be a challenge, I am SURE!
ANYHOW.... This card was made a couple nights ago. My dear friend, Cindy, in an effort to get me creating, put out a challenge to me....pick a challenge off Daily Dare, and DO IT! She did it too...check out her blog! I chose the sketch at Papertake Weekly. I used a new stamp from All That Scraps named Sweet Nikki. She is colored with Prisma Watercolor Pencils, and then lightly blended with an AquaBrush. I used PP from my Basic Grey Lemonade Pack. I just love this paper, and have been hoarding it...hehehehe. Finished her off with a SU sentiment and some pink bling. It felt great to make something....
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL week...I hope to see you again SOON! Thanks for stopping by!
