I'm still alive and well....

It's been quite a while since I've posted...life just gets too busy sometimes.  I spent the last part of last year making gifts for all my children.  In November, I fell from a 12 foot ladder while adding ornaments to the top of a 20 foot tree at church.  I fell about 10 feet...bouncing off the choir risers on my way down...WHEW!  Believe it or not, I didn't even break a bone!  However, it's been a couple of months now and I just now moving with ease! LOL!  I've also been on a "getting healthier" kick and spend a good bit of my time at the gym and walking.  I've lost about 50 lbs now and would like to lose about 20 more...so I've got my work cut out for me in the next few months.  

I recently got a yearly report from Fitbit...and according to their tracking, I walked 3,139,520 steps in 2019 for a total of 1,342 miles!!! Go ME!!

Anyway...with all that said, I have managed to get a few cards made in the last week or so, so I thought I'd share them with you.


This card was made using new to me stamps from Maymay Made It.com.  She does lots of videos also.  I used my score buddy to make scores every 1/4 inch on a white card piece cut slightly narrower than the card base.  The laundry basket was stamped multiple times and then I just cut the laundry off and stacked it up on one of the baskets.  Very quick and simple.


This next card was made with another stamp set from Maymaymadeit.com called Flowers for Friends.  I cut it slightly smaller than the card base, then added some striped papers to the right and bottom edge of the card base and popped the panel on top.  I also added a few Nuvo drops for dimension.  Image was colored with Copic markers.


This card was made using the flower stamp from Penny Black and the sentiment from Maymaymadeit.com Flowers for a friend.  I colored the image with Copics, cut the right edge off and fussy cutting the flower edge, then popped it over a black striped border.  Sentiment was stamped in versamark and embossed in white on black card stock.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Comments are always welcomed and appreciated!  Have a great weekend!

Hugs!
