I made this card in about 10 minutes and I know it shows. Sometimes just the silly cards are needed to fill space and send a giggle. It went to my dear friend who has done so much for me and needs a little, silly, giggle.
I decided to chalk this image and it turned out okay. I need more practice at everything but it is a learning process right. Adore this pretty paper. Cosmo cricket and one of my new favorites.
I want to work on some more cards this week but duties call. So I hope to be able to play on Sunday.
Thank you as always for stopping by and leaving some love. It is always appreciated.

I know it has been too long since I have posted. Life is a tornado some days. It seems that they show up and go for weeks or even almost a month.
I have not been able to create for a while. Simply no time. Activities from family,home church, etc take the front line and everything else falls behind. I haven't even been in the garden yet and we are getting some beautiful weather lately. Have to take some time this week and do a bit of playing in the dirt. I miss it so much.
I made a few cards last night. I managed to get two done. Don't know how that happened but am delighted to have a bit of relaxing, paper play time.
The first card was made for a dear friends birthday. She has been very ill and don't know how much time I will have left with her. I try and make a new card for her every month. She refers to them as a hug from me. How sweet is that statement? Flowers is what she loves most, so this is her card.
Rather simple but that is how she is. She lives a simple, loving life. I hope she likes it.
The second card is for my son's birthday also later this month. He is a antique kinda guy. Loves the old stuff but again simple with fun colors. A guys card is hard! I had such a time, I wanted to add bows and curls and ya know? Well not for a guys card. So plain and ultra simple it is. I did get to distress to at least.
That is about it. I still have some learning to do I know. I am trying to get some of these new techniques in practice. I hope to have time later this weekend. Girls just wanna have fun. LOL
Have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by.:)
