I am back..

I am finally with it again. I got all caught up after being gone the first part of the week. I don't think that I recovered from sleep until Sunday. But now I have gotten abck into the swing of things again. I wanted to thank all of you that send kind words to me about my Grandfather. His funeral was nice and I am sure it was just what he would have wanted. They had the navy come out and play taps and present Uncle Don with an American Flag. It was really touching.

Now I am back home and I have been working on some projects that I had to put off because of my trip. I made some cards and some projects that were half done and driving me crazy.

The first card is made from a sketch from Bete's weekend challenge. I love the circle on the side it really adds to the design. I do not have a circle cutter so I traced it from a tin pail that I had sitting around. It works for me. :o) This card is part of a gift set that I made for someone, but not going to tell becuase I have not sent it yet.

The other card posted is called and Artist Trading Card (ATC) they are swapped among crafters. They will be various themes but always on the back of the cards list personal info about you so people can contact you if they have questions about what you made. Here is the first one that I have ever made. The theme was Penguins. You know that I could not pass that one up. It is just a little penguin that I heat embossed and he is on a 3.5x2.5 card with little rhinestones in the corners. I liked him. Hope that you do. Anyway I hope that all is well with you all. I will try to up date again soon.
Love You all.
