Some updates

Hello! Its been a while! First, I want to thank all of my new followers! I know quite a few of you found me through Momo. Thank you for checking out my blog and becoming followers! My heart was happy when I saw all my new followers! For those who found me before Momo, thank you for being followers!

Second, a number of you commented on my post about my uncle. Unfortunaly he did not get better. Last Sunday, March the 20 my uncle passed away at only 50 years old. This past week has been very emotional with the funeral and various family gatherings. Thank you all for your kind thoughts though. They did make me feel better. Now that his funeral is over I'm hoping to have more time to craft. Crafting heals the heart :)

Third, I won a blog award! This is my first ever blog award and I'm so excited! Thank you so much Sarah from Crafting with Sarah!!

Baby Boy

This card was made for a friend of mine who is having her first baby! I'm so excited for her and her husband! I've known them for a few years and we recently reconnected! They've decided on a name but I won't post it here for their privacy.

The card looks very turquoise in this picture but its lighter. The white part with the birds on it is fuzzy. I love that paper, I got it from Michael's for $.17! The duck and rattle are stickers and they are glittery but not so much that it screams girly. Looking at the picture I think my letters are crooked! Oops, thats what I get for doing this card late at night! Enjoy!

I just wanted to let you guys know that there probably won't be any crafting going on for a while and also to explain my lack of recent posts. My uncle was admitted to the hospital with liver failure and has steadily been declining since. I have been spending a lot of time there with my family hoping and praying for him to recover. He has started to improve a tiny but as of today, however we are still being very cautious.

Also, my husband and I are currently in the middle of buying a home. So we are very busy with that as well. I hope to be able to craft again soon but I don't have a time frame.

Thank you all for your support and understanding.

Best Wishes

This was a real simple card I made for a coworker of my husbands. His coworker is leaving to go to a new area. The Soarin' logo on the front is property of the Walt Disney Company and I used it for my own private use. The cartridge used for the font was Plantin Schoolbook. On the inside of the card I put a treeline, a sea cutout and an orange to represent the three scents on the ride.
