I thought when you got older and your children all left home that you would have more time for yourself. HA HA HA! I don't seem to have any time lately. My evacuated kids went back to Houston and everything there was fine. Thank Goodness!!! My two grandbabies are due to be here withing the next month so I have been busy sewing baby stuff and then a friends mother died and then my son and his wife are trying to get into their new house they built before the baby comes...painting nursery and some landscaping. Anyway...not much card making time.

I finally found some today. I haven't done the 2 Sketches 4 You challenge in 2 or 3 weeks ugh! I like this sketch but I can tell I am alittle rusty! I cut the two swirlly things(don't know what else to call them :0) ) on the blue with my cricut.

How did she do that?

Stamps: Michaels Dollar Spot
Ink: Stazon Black and Pacific Point
Paper: Basic Black, Pacific Point, and DP from LSS
Tools: Cricut
Embellishments: Black Sheer Ribbon and Blue Glitter

I think my life has calmed down so that I can create again! YAHOO!!

Hope you didn't forget about me....come back! LOL
