Quick card for you...I paper pieced the dresses & added some pearls. Found the measuring tape ribbon at Hobby Lobby. I sponged some distress ink on the edges to make it look a little aged.
Well, my brother has finally been released from the hospital so I am leaving my family in charge here while I go help him for awhile. Looking forward to seeing him as I haven't seen him for a few years!
I will check in with you soon!

Good Morning! I am still alive!! It's been real busy around here and not much crafting time. My brother is finally on the mend after many,many set backs. I am hoping to leave in a few days to stay with him for awhile when he gets home as he will need help doing the simplest of things until he regains his strength. I did get to go to a fun filled weekend at my friend's house. Several of us spent the weekend there scrap booking, laughing, eating and did I mention eating?! LOL! Such good food. mmm yummy! It was great to just have time to "let our hair down" and just enjoy each others company. Didn't get a whole lot of sleep but that's OK!! I got quite a lot of my scrapbook pages done. Haven't worked on that in a loooong time! Taking some stuff to work on at my brother's. Can't take a lot of craft stuff so I stamped a bunch of images to color while I am there and some paper piecing stuff. Maybe I will have something to share with you tomorrow..depends on how the day goes. Thanks for checking on me!

Hello! Hope you all are doing OK. My step mom might get to come home today. My brother is still in the hospital. He's gonna have a long haul to get back to "normal" but he is stubborn so I'm sure he will be fine. I guess it runs in the family (being stubborn) LOL!
Haven't crafted much but did get this card done. Isn't she cute? She is a digital stamp from All That Scraps. Kind of reminds me of my "Magnolia girls". Some people don't like that they don't have a mouth but I think they are sweet! Thanks for coming by today to check on me. Hopefully I can get some crafting done later today. I NEED to for my sanity..LOL!

Hello...Sorry I haven't been around. When it rains, it pours. My brother has had more surgery & my stepmom ended up in ICU with pneumonia. So not much crafting going on. But I did get to make this bunny card. It's a digi from Angel's Landing. Not much chit chat today..sorry!

Monday, monday...
All I can say is "Calgon take me away"...Some of you younger ones won't remember that commercial. It has been one heck of a week with my brother. Just when things are looking up he is headed back into surgery. I have lost count how many surgeries he has had this past week.. at least 5 or 6. I wonder how much more his body can endure. Please keep him in your prayers. Needless to say I haven't done much crafting. Hope to later today. Just wanted you to know I haven't forgotten you. I hope to have something to post later today or tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping!

Hello! Just checking in today. No new cards to share.
Asking for prayers though for my brother. He had surgery 2 weeks ago to remove 3/4 of his intestines. He is now back in the hospital after an emergency surgery on Sunday. He has had 3 more since. He is on a respirator & fighting for his life. I am not able to go be with him because he is in Tenn. I can only afford to go once & I am thinking he is going to need help when he gets home. But it is hard being so far away from him! What happened was his bowel perforated and all that "stuff" spread through his body. Plus while he was on the operating table his arm turned blue. They had to operate on it and found a blood clot. He has been through alot lately and I am just praying for God to heal him.
Have to clean my house today & take down the rest of my snowmen. I think it's about time! Then I get to craft tonight...Yippee!! I haven't for a few days and I really need to unwind & just create. It's my therapy!!
Have a great day and thanks for stopping!

The pictures aren't that's snowy & dismal out. Can't wait for spring to get here! I did see a very pregnant robin the other day so it IS on it's way!!

Hello! Today the sun is shining & the snow is melting! YAY!
I noticed my daffodils are starting to peek out of the ground.
Spring is on it's way!
Aren't these stamps FUN? They are designed by Kim Hughes. She just recently opened her OWN stamp company...Paper Smooches. I used to get some of her designs from Cornish Hertiage Farms but now she' on her own!
The stamps are fun & whimsical. Definitely bring a smile to my face. Can't wait to make some more cards..the ideas are flowing today. (Must be because of Mr. Sun)
Thanks for stopping!
