Good afternoon! It has been quite a day already...
Actually it started a few days ago..I've been having some pretty major headaches and couldn't figure out what was causing them. We were thinking it was my eyes, so started looking into where we could go to get them checked when my husband decided to check my craft room for any environmental problems that could cause my headaches.
Well, guess what...one whole corner was completely molded out!! We had this problem last year and thought it had been fixed...guess not.
So now I am completely displaced from my craft room...all my stuff is sitting on the kitchen table, which isn't really working for me.
Plus, I can't really use my computer/cricut because my computer is having lots of issues and not running properly. So I'm pretty much stuck using only the few die cuts and punches that I have to decorate my cards. You have no idea how difficult that is!!!
And to top it off...my printer decided to run out of black ink and I don't have any replacement cartridges...well I do, but they are the wrong number..ugh...now I can't even print images!
So for the next week or so, my cards may be pretty boring...if I even post any at all.
Think I will take this time to do some networking, visit new blogs and find some new challenges :)
But I wanted to share 2 cards with you that I just finished up.
The image is a new one from Saturated Canary called Butterfly Baby. It's my fav right now..really any SC image is my favorite...I love them all and have a hard time choosing which to work with every day :)
I printed out the sentiment and used my scallop scissors to cut around it. Then punched out some stars, turned them into buttons and strung some purple twine into a bow.
One of the panels layered behind the image is embossed with a cupcakes folder. Wanted to add something sweet on there since it is a birthday card :)
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

My next card I started working on this morning and right when I figured out the layout and went to print everything...no ink...so I stewed over what to do with it. Since I couldn't print I had to work with something either already printed or die cuts.
Punched out the side with my Martha Stewart Double Arches punch and lined it with small pearls.
The sentiment tickets were freebies from The Crafty Pad. I'm probably going to be making a lot of BCA cards...that theme just seems to be strong in my mind right now. I forget sometimes that it has affected my life too...my wonderful 94 year old grandma has breast cancer...I think I forget about that because she isn't actively fighting it. She has decided to leave it alone, so even though we see her struggle from day to day, I forget that a lot of it is from the cancer. I love my grandparents dearly and it pains me to watch them slip away from us :(
I just pray for everyone out there that is affected by cancer...of any kind. It sucks...period...
