Happy


We have a super fun sketch this week -- perfect for using some of those scraps that you've been saving. Aw come on, you know you have a whole bag or box full (smile). Our sketch this week is by Melissa, and it looks like this:


We also have another surprise embellishment bag as this week's prize. The bag will contain some fun embellishments and a small stamp set -- maybe you can use them in an upcoming sketch challenge -- hum?

I am not going to be able to give you a whole lot of information about my card because I did raid my scraps for every bit of the card except the sentiment and the card base. I started with a white 5 x 7" card. The background is a green and white. The top square and the two on the right side of each row are from another piece of paper I found in my scrap bag. The next two (move left) are from a second sheet, and the last one (bottom row) from a third sheet. I don't think any of them are from the same "set" of papers, but they all matched quite nicely. The chipboard sentiment actually matches the flowers in the set of 3 squares with flowers and leaves.

Some of you may remember that I have a friend who has been going through chemotherapy. I try to send her a card weekly to let her know that I am thinking of her and praying for her. The last time I saw her, she said that the cancer is responding favorably to the chemo. This is great news and made me quite happy. I plan on sending this card to her!

I apologize for not getting my blog posted last week. I did make my DT card (as you may know if you visited the TMS blog), but I have been meeting myself coming and going lately. In addition to six days a week work weeks for the past several weeks, I now am trying to work in those yearly doctor's appointments (mammogram, physicals, etc.). I guess my Doc was trying to help me out because her office had scheduled me for two different procedures this morning for the same time at two different places -- like completely across town from each other!  Anyway, hoping things will start to slow down soon, and I can get back on track again.

Happy crafting, friends --

  1. With all you have going on, it's amazing you have time to make cards, but this turned out so pretty! I like the pretty dsp squares, and the great sentiment is sure to make your friend feel better too! I'm so glad she's responding to the chemo and hope she has better days in her future once this battle is over! Enjoy your holiday and TC!
