My come-back card

Celebrate Yourself!

So decided to share why this card is so important to me. For many months now - actually years I have been struggling with a lot of pain in my back. Earlier this year, my right arm decided it did not even want to work for me anymore. That is when my doctors decided, it was time for more surgery. So April 3 I had neck surgery, more disc fusion. Since then I have not done anything crafty at all. This is my "come-back" card. It is a wedding card for a very special young man and his young bride. But the "congratulation" can also be taken for me. So, it is a very personal card for me. Hope you like it - why am I sharing this with you?

We have wedding sets, kids sets, masculine sets - we have everything covered. Stacy Julian added to her collection as well to help you tell your story. Its hard not to get crazy - ha!
But check it out for yourself - and remember, you will get a free hard copy with your first order, how cool is that!

Close To My Heart Independent Consultant

Hello and thank you for stopping by!

This is my first attempt on a blog - can you tell? I am sure you can. From what I have learned about blogs they are like an online journal and you are getting a peak into my soul ...

At this time I am trying to learn how to post my artwork with watermark and copyright and all that jazz -but I a, learning. My plan is to post my work and along with it I will explain what I used and how I made the project.

As we go along, I will also give you a peak into my life. I will share some pictures of my family, places we have been, places we have visited. So, please come back and visit often. Just know, that I am very new to this blogging thing! So, at this time - any help you can give me is highly appreciated in growing my skills in "blogging".

If you live close to me and you would like to join me in my craft place or one my crops please, check my calendar for any upcoming workshops!
