Yellow Butterfly

It's me again! :) I have been trying to craft a bit this weekend and made this butterfly card with a much neglected stamp. I bought this butterfly stamp and it's HUGE. I wasn't sure how to use it, but I attempted a card with it and I think it turned out okay. Yay. 

I want to enter it in the Modsquad challenge blog as their theme of butterflies inspired me to finally ink up the stamp!

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. The weather in my part of Texas has been beautiful. 

Crafty hugs.

Woody Sunflower


 Hi friends! I am terrible at actually photographing and blogging my cards. I am going to make it a goal to try and do better this month. I do create from time to time, but this year has not been a good one for getting them mailed and I want to change that as well. :)  My friends over at Beyond the Blue have a fun challenge this week and I played along. I love the background and plan to do the technique again! I used a sunflower I had colored and stashed away to complete my card. 

So life... lol I'm still doing physical therapy for my shoulder and it pretty much feels like I've messed it up for life at this point. It's very frustrating. Getting old is rough!  Tomorrow I get my first COVID vaccine, so if that makes my other arm hurt, I guess I'll spend the weekend in bed with Netflix. lol

I hope you are all doing well and staying safe. 

Hugs.

Snarky Cat Meets Gel Press


 Hi all! I figured I'd check in to see if we've all almost survived what feels like THE longest January ever!!  I've been having issues getting my pictures to upload to my blog, but finally downloaded Firefox and it seems to work. I love Chrome, but it doesn't love me back I guess. Anyway...  some of my stamping friends created a fun new challenge blog and I wanted to play along with them. The blog is called Beyond The Blue Challenges and you should totally check it out. The first challenge uses a gel press, which is one of the tools that terrifies me! I used my new snarky cats that I just adore. 

We are still hanging around the house and hoping for better days soon. Jason has had both rounds of his vaccine, but nothing for me yet. I think I'm going to be pretty low on the list. lol I sure have been missing going to the movies or out to dinner lately, but maybe I'll just REALLY appreciate them more when/if I do get to go again. 

I hope you are hanging in there and staying safe. 

Hugs.

MFT Sketch 522 Bees


 Happy New Year!!  I guess whether or not it will be happy remains to be seen. lol I've been stamping a bit more this past week since my shoulder feels some better. I did go to physical therapy last week and she think it's a sprained rotator cuff. I have exercises to do daily and will go to therapy weekly. So fingers crossed!!  This card is for the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge. I hope I got it close enough. SO many BEES!!!

 
That's about it for me. I'm chatting with some friends on Zoom and hoping to make a card. :)   Take care.
