Sunday, May 23, 2010

Good Sunday evening - where did the week end go - I still have a whole day of work to do and I should be in bed by 10 - gotta hit the deck running at work - lots of work to accomplish - plus I am going to serve my birthday treat - a berry trifle - of course - I can not find my recipe - so we are going to wing it. Summer has hit - we are in the 90's right now and I guess I need to turn on my air conditioner - I don't want to do that. But I may have to if I want to sleep tonight.

I did get some creating done today. I would love to just spend a day creating but alas that is not to happen.

My card started out based on the Tuesday sketch at A Crafty Little Place and then I started assembling it - the strips going around the edge did not work on my card. I do love how the card turned out. It is for the Mom of my friend Shari who died this week from cancer. I wanted her to know she was in my thoughts - as a mother - I can't believe how hard it would be to have a child die before you did.

Everyone have a wonderful evening. Stop back tomorrow for Oldie Moldie Monday. Everyone is welcome to participate.

Simply stunning, Barb...my four year old says she wants to make something as pretty as your card...I told her I did too. You did a fabulous job with the sketch. I think it will mean a lot to your friend's mother. So,sorry to hear of her loss.

Smiles and hugs...
