Bloom with Cricut Lite

What little time I have had I have really enjoyed using the lite cartridges you can get at walmart!!!  I thnk I should of picked up the boy one though to use for my one and only grandson!!  Well this one was inspired by watching utube.  And I can honestly say I needed the inspiration because I haven't made to many cards lately and my mind has been a little stale.  I used the background paper as my focus for my cuts  I also used some Martha Stewart supplies that I haven't incorporated into any cards yet.  I might not have been making cards but I have been building up some supplies for when I do!!!  And one thing I never have enough of is thankyou cards to give for the many things other do for me!!!  Hopefully I will get to more cards !

Thinking of You

Very simple but glad that I actually got to make a card even though it is simple!!  I have all these ideas and new toys to play with and so little time.  Well summer seems to be a hectic time and I get more accomplished in the winter!!!!

Not Forgotten!!!

I know it has been ages since I have posted anything!!!  I really miss my stress release that I get from making cards!!!  Since my father past away shortly after the first of the year I move my mom over with me and she has been living with us!!  This really cut into my scrapping time but I was managing to keep with it!!  At the end of April my fathers sister fell and had to have surgery and went to rehab to get the leg up to par but has been unable to care for herself due to other issues so we opened our home to her ( she had no one else to take care of her) also.  Of course, now with to elderly loved ones living with us it has put my scrapping to a stand still until arrangements can be made to free up some of my time.  A few plans are in the works for this and I am so excited that there is a small light at the end of the tunnel to get back to what I truly love to do. Say prayers for us and hope to be posting soon!!!!
