Thinking of You

 I was just getting ready to post a card I made for my husband since today is our 33rd wedding anniversary when my brother called and said his wife's son was in a horrible motorcycle accident. So I thought I would put that aside for now and make a card to let them all that we are thinking of them especially during this rough time. A big rig crossed over the double yellow lines and caused him to go off the road and into a ditch, he was pulling it out and then hit a concrete bridge and wrecked. He wound up in a field and couldn't seem to get anyone's attention for a least a couple of hours in the 100+ heat. He broke his back and pelvis and bruised his splene and lungs. I don't usually ask for this but if anyone would say a prayer for them I would appreciate it.Thank you to all that visit my blog and hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

4th Birthday!

 I just wanted to stop in real quick to show you a tag/card I made for our granddaughter. Today is her birthday. I needed a tag for her present but I didn't want to make it too bulky since I had to mail it. I decided since it was big enough that I would also make it a card also. I also made it so she could hang it if she liked. It is pretty self explanatory and all products are PTI except for the pattern paper which I had in my stash.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day,

PTI Make It Monday #24

Happy Friday!! I ws out shopping a few days ago and say the color combination of pink, grey, black and white. I knew I wanted to do something with it but wasn't quite sure just yet, so I sat on it. Then I found out the my sister and her granddaughter both were diagnosed with cancer (two different kinds). So I decided I needed to make them a card. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do then I saw the Make It Monday on the Papertrey Ink blog and decided to do something with it. I liked the idea of the dry brushing and did it on the edges for some softness.
Here is a picture of both cards together. I didn't want to do the same color scheme so I went with the colors for each of the cancers they each had.

Here is a close up of one of the cards up close:

Belated Birthday

 Hello! I have been so bad in keeping up with my blog but life has just taken over and crafting hasn't been much of a priority. Last week was one of my BIL's birthday. My husband's family isn't much on sending out cards to each other so I was certainly surprised when he asked if I would make his brother a card. I think it was more to get me back into crafting so he was actually helping me out. This is the card I came up with. I used the Road Trip pattern paper from Papertrey Ink. Since he lives in New York and we live in California I thought it fit. It is pretty explanatory. All products are from Papertrey Ink except for the die I used for the strip borders. I do need to do more because I find it to be very relaxing. I also need to get around to everyone's blog that I have been neglecting. I haven't forgot about you I just have had others things going on and haven't spent much time in the crafting world.

I think that is about it for me today.
Thank you for anyone that does stop by my blog and has a look. I appreciate all that do!!
Have a great day!
