LIM128 - Anything but a Square or Rectangle

It's been quite a while since I've posted.  I'm working on getting my life back on track right now so I haven't crafted in a while.  I wanted to get back to "normal"...whatever that is...and so I've made a card for the Less is More challenge this week.  If I don't make it to your blog to leave you a comment, please forgive me...I'm just not there yet.

Here's my card:


I made the card on my Cameo by welding the one and the eight together, making a mirror image and welding that together before cutting out the file. I stamped with a HA stamp in HA pale pink. Sentiment is from PTI and is heat embossed with black embossing powder.

I'd like to say thank you to all of you who have sent me cards and emails.  I appreciate each and every one of them.  I'm still working through some things, and I appreciate your continued thoughts and prayers.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Your comments and your visits are always appreciated!! Until next time...

A beautiful card, lovely shade of pink.

It will take you some time to get back to 'normal' but you have to do that in your own time and own way.

Continued thoughts and prayers go out to you.

It's great to see you back Susan, you have certainly been missed.
I have been wondering about getting a cutting machine but it all sounds so tricky. I think you have made this brilliantly and the stamping looks just lovely!
Thanks so much

Lovely card Susan. Why oh why I don't use my Cameo I'll never know. I think keeping it front and center on my desk might help instead of in a proper place.

I was just going to email you as you've been so often in my thoughts the last few days and was excited to see that you had posted! That Cameo is really something, by the way. Take care, my friend. My thoughts and prayers are still with you.

MaryH said...

Welcome back- just checked in on the off-chance you had a post. So happy to see that you've made a lovely card. My Cameo is gathering dust, but yours did a fine job on all this welding, duplicating, etc. I was impressed. Hope that each day gets a little easier, and life returns to what you need it to be at this point. All takes time. Some days may still not be so good. You just have to hold onto the thought that tomorrow will be better. Know that thoughts & prayers are with you, and we'll be waiting when you're back to crafting & enjoying it once more. Hugs & TFS
