Hello.  I hope to be creating soon.  I have an ear problem that is causing my balance to be off.  I just haven't had any mojo for the last few days.  Working and daily errands are zapping my energy.  I hope to visit you all soon.  Katie

I made this card for a friend who helped me out this weekend, when I fainted at my sons Lacrosse game.  A few of the parents sacrificed watching their sons play to help me out.  I felt better on Saturday and Sunday.  But, it came back today.  I am going to the doctor tomorrow.

The papers are DCWV all of the stamps are from "Stamps of Life"  I used Colorbox inks.  The square and the flower dies are from Spellbinders and the sentiment die is from My Creative Time. The gems are Creative Imaginations. The ladybug is on a Action Wobble that I won from Janis at Pause, Dream & Enjoy and Paper Playtime.  Speaking of PAUSE,DREAM & ENJOY  they are having a "Friendship" challenge.  I am also linking up to DL.ART Thankful Thursday April Linky Party.

Also, FCCB is having an "April Shower" challenge.

HELLO.  Happy Friday to all of you.  I am looking forward to a weekend of crafting.  This card is totally the opposite of what I thought I was going to create.  I made it to fit the current challenge at FCCB.  It is a color and shape challenge.  Yellow and triangles.  I pictured a light yellow and white polka dot card.  I can't believe I didn't have any light yellow paper.  I used birthday Bash for the triangles.  All papers are DCWV.  The letters are stickers from my stash.  The flowers are K&Company.

Fantabulous Cricut is having an April Fools Challenge.CLICK HERE for more details.  My friend Diana from DL.Art made a super fun joke card.  She inspired me to look at "Kids are Punny"  a joke book by Rosie O"Donnell.  I chose the joke "Why are the baby strawberries crying?"  "Because their mother is in a jam."  I chose a sketch that Die Cutting Divas have for a challenge. Also Paper Playtime is having a "pun" challenge.  I used Hello Kitty for the strawberries and from the kitchen for the jar.
Why are the baby strawberries crying?
Because their mother is in a jam.
