Is May Over Yet?

What a month it's been.  Hubby went in the hospital with pneumonia;  I've had to work his days and my own at the golf course; trying to get cards done for the various Design Teams; we just bought a new house; and, I'm dealing with either ulcers or gall bladder . . . not sure which one I want it to be, but I'll hopefully find out Monday.

With all that's been going on, I almost forgot about the two progressive challenges I love to do each month. I've had the images and sentiments printed since the first week in May and they sat on my desk waiting to be finished.  I scrambled last night to finish them. Now I have to finish two other cards that are due in the next hour.

From the Heart Stamps ~ I used the B&W line art from Whimsy Garden Fence and colored it with Copics.  I embossed the patchwork front using the Cuttlebug "With Gratitude" embossing folder.

I used the sentiment from the set on the inside. 

Imagine That! Digis by Kris ~ I used the color version from "Happy Mother's Day," but highlighted the pink areas with a pink Copic.  The DSP is from the American Crafts Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm Paper Pad. 

The sentiment came with the "Happy Mother's Day" set.

Well, I can't believe it's almost June. Some fun and exciting things this month so I hope you stop back often to see what I have for you this month.  And, hopefully no bad news.

Keep Crafting ! 


  1. Cute card and interesting color combi ! The embossed background fits great.
