I HAVE to share this

My mom is so sweet and she has saved (unbeknowst to me) every card I have ever made her. If you have someone like this, check back and see how far you've come. So many ladies have commented on my cards about how they could never be as creative as I am. Well I'm here to say that "YES YOU CAN!"
I have been making cards for about 5 years now and over the last year have seriously "upped the anti" on my card making. I spend hours in my craft room coloring, cardmaking, blogging and surfing. Some days the hubby isn't the happiest about it but give him his PS3 and a case of beer and I'm good for a day! LOL! Some things I never knew I could do was have a blog that hosts over 100 followers. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!! People actually want to see MY cards?!! Mine? Are you sure?
Apparently so and I want to see all of yours too. So, I suppose for all of those who say you will never be able to or you can't, you're probably closer then you think. You've already made the biggest step and that was the first one. BUYING PRODUCT. The rest is time and practice just like anything.
Anyway, to now reveal my first card - WOW!! And you all can go ahead and giggle because I think it's hilarious!! I opened the email from my mom at work and literally bust a gut right at my desk. My how things change!

This is my take on SS's challenge. I just got some Motivet images from my friend Tanya. THANKS A LOT - kinda..........enabler. LOL!! These guys are so cute! I am trying to stay away from adding glitter, since I do that on almost anything because I think it's just fine by itself now. Sweet!! hee hee!


A few of my new found friends have helped make the transition of my sister moving, a bit more bearable. I just wanted to say thanks to ALL of them.

Sheri - thanks for being there via email. Your words of encouragement have helped and it's nice to know what kind of friendship you can have without ever meeting someone. I greatly appreciated it!!

Chris - thanks very much for the lovely flowers and the coffee breaks you take with me. I appreciate the time you have taken to check in on me as the week goes by. So nice!!!

Cheri - Thanks so much for the card wall hanging (below). Your work is amazing and I am honored to have not only 1 but 2 pieces of your artwork. Thanks for thinking of me!! Made me feel a whole lot better!
