Wow, Miss Me?

I'm shocked it's been over 2 weeks since I've last been here.   I guess it's been busier than what I realized.   The fun part is that I think life is about to get a little less crazy and I'll have more time for crafting.  At first I was panicked but as I think it through it,  I realize that more time for rest, fun and hobbies isn't such a bad thing at all.   My "work-aholic" self is going to have to stay calm and learn to work's all good.

Tonight's card is from PaperSecrets CYAO6 Challenge - What a CUTE sketch!  I added buttons because that's the Paper Players #87 Challenge and I'm glad to be back playing again with them.   Playing with my AMuse Studio stamps, papers and embellishments as I dream of new colors that will soon be on the way to my house.  It's Spring and time for some new stamp goodies.   Stay Inspired!

You Are Special

Hello March!
Happy March 5th!   It's always a FUN time when it's Crafty Girls Blog Hop day and today, being the 5th of the month ... it's time!   This month,  Melina challenged us to use the theme "Not Luck - Blessings!".   What a great idea.  Of course, it's March so using Green was still part of the challenge.   I made 4 of these cards as I like how it came together and I really do have some special people in my life who are blessings to me!  I always say "I'm lucky to have them" but really I do believe they were gifted to me by God.  I'm very thankful for them.   I used Mojo Monday #230

Don't forget to check out the other Crafty Girls Blogs to see "Blessings - not Luck"!  They always come up with Amazing, you won't want to miss them.
