It's Thursday again, go figure...

It has been an interesting week. Monday and Tuesday we had off from work, bummer though, no work no pay so you really can't enjoy it. Then to top it all off I was not feeling my best. I was feeling the exact same way I felt a year ago and ended up in the hospital. I have a mind over matter thing going, I can't afford to be sick, so it don't matter! I am feeling some what better today. It's just our crazy weather here. 80 degrees during the day and mid 40's at night. I am okay unless I go out at night.
Back on to more fun stuff. I am on a mission to have one of my cards published in a magazine. I see what is out there and say "I can do that!" I really like the Cricut magazine and they are having a call out. Is that what they call it? I made a card tonight but not for that. I made it just to do it, because I haven't felt good enough to be at my work table.
 I stamped the butterflies on some scrap patterned paper. The oval is from a stamp set from Stamps of Life, it's an outline of a tree. Again stamped on scrap paper from my stash. I then cut and embossed the background on my cuttlebug. Taped the butterflies to the oval and applied pearls. Cut and tied ribbon to the front panel, stamped birthday sentiment and mounted on green scrap paper. I used my ATG to mount panel to front of the card. You can't see it, but inside I used some more scrap paper that matches the oval and a piece of white card stock to the inside. Done! I am really trying to use up some of my scraps. I am doing a pretty good job so far. Have a great Friday!


  1. Your card is just beautiful!!! It would absolutely adorn ANY magazine!

    I was looking for your "Linky" follow me to sign up but I don't see it; I already follow you through Google Friends Connect but thought you had the Linky for when Google Friend Connects is discontinued. Of course, I'll keep checking back, my friends -- don't want to lose touch with you!

    Keeping you in my prayers that you stay well, and hope to hear news of your being published in that magazine soon!

    Hugs to you!
