Hey girlies!! Hope you all had a great weekend! Saturday was busy for me but Sunday, while still busy, was much more relaxing. I was able to actually spend the rest of the day at home after church. I had hoped to take a nap but spent Carvers nap time taking pics of the cards that I made last night for the current PC call and then submitting them. I definitely needed a nap after that but wouldn't you know... as soon as I got finished with my last one... Carver woke up! Oh well!

I have high hopes for some early bed times this coming week! :)

This is a card that I made for the last PC call. Nothing fancy. I think the color combo is one of Dawn McVey's challenge combos from a while ago.

I will keep it short so I can get busy working on more cards. Feels good to be making cards... I missed it! And... I missed all of you. So glad to have caught up with most of you! Hope you guys have a fab Monday!

Peace and Love!

Edit: I just cleaned out my hotmail inbox and had this email from my friend, Alison. Please either post this info on your blog or... pass along to anyone that you know who may want to send this precious boy a card. Thanks... and Thanks Alison for sending it to me!

Oh, my dear creative wonder! Such a lovely card! You are such a delight! I wish you so very much luck with the latest round of submissions: it's time for you, my friend! This was a DARLING card, and I'm astonished it wasn't picked up, but now WE get to enjoy it! WAHOOO! Sorry you didn't get a nap in today - that's just all kinds of WRONG! (There's ALWAYS tomorrow!)

Oh, I love this card! Soo sweet! That is so sad about the little boy- I hate hearing about children suffering - it's heart breaking. TFS.

This is definitely one of my favorite color combos and I love how you showcased it - so clean and crisp...the makeup of a perfect card :)

Good luck with the submissions - I got three cards done and submitted in the knick of time. I'm such the procrastinator!!

I love this card, Kelley! Those squares and buttons at the bottom, sentiment at the side. I think it's perfect!
