My heart has been so heavy lately that I haven't had a bit of mojo ... but then I remembered why I started making cards: I had something I wanted to say to someone I loved ... these are for my sweet father-in-law:
Who among us doesn't need to hear these next words? Julie Ebersole has given me the perfect words in Ellen's Essentials Up the Happy, and Paper Smooches provided the Quotable die, which combined gives me a card for E.H. Mix it Up Challenge.
Thank you for stopping by today ... and if you are among those who are sending prayers our way? Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts... xx
p.s. a special thank you to a dear sweet friend for those gorgeous MFT Watercolor Wash Brights papers.
February is my favorite Winter month ... guess why? Because it's the shortest!!! We also had fewer days to wait to play with our 12 Kits of Occasions team!!
Michelle Leone is our Host this month! and who better to have a theme called "Garden Party?" Two Ls, as I have always called her, sent us the prettiest little packet of garden variety gorgeousness... enough with the chit chat ... let's get this party started!!
Here is a tiny peek into Michelle's kit:
Thanks, Lindsey, for the photo!
You'll soon see that I've barely made a dent in it, but here goes - beverage ready?
"It doesn't get more beautiful than that...at any age!
Happy birthday, gorgeous!!!"
"For a very HOPPY, and blessed, Easter!"
"Hope yours is blooming awesome!"
"You're always there as my shelter from any storm!"
"For a moment, this nest didn't feel empty at all!"
Last of all, and perhaps the quickest card I've EVER made!
"Life is too short to have it any other way!"
With that I leave you ... perhaps you've stopped by from the 12 Kits of Occasions blog ... if not, please do head over there!
It's Sunday, it's sunny, and I'm feeling good! Add a little craft time, and that bumps it up to great.
Here is where I'm playing cards today:
I'm betting there isn't one among us who would mind a little heart in, or on, their birthday card... this one goes out in March to a sweet team mate, and it is perfect for FMS276!
Fusion is all about Pretty in Pink this week ... these papers are in my favorite shades, and I didn't mind playing with them a little more. I'm going for a fusion of elements from their Sketch, and photo:
Both my cards were inspired by fabulous designers in our card-making world....
