A Note of Thanks

Emily had her concert this week. I was so having issues with my camera....Even the camera on my phone would not focus. I guess the photo op was out. this time. Next time. She played very well. I can tell that she is very bored. I hope that she doesn't get discouraged and not want to play anymore. She is a natural and was doing all kinds of projects and solo's and mentoring other students last year. Now she is in a new school and main streamed and they are doing the same book as last year which is already mastered and NO solo's and NO extra projects and nothing to make her special and frankly is a ticket for disaster with Eme. She is a type of child that has to be challenged. We will see. Anyways, I made this card in honor .... MFT weekly sketch challenge. MFTWSC21.

Let's Celebrate

I was playing with the new set from Paper Smooches called Friendly flowers, and the New Sentiment Sampler.

All I did here was paper pieced the flowers and then cut them out and kind of popped the flowers and curled the leaves. It look so cool!

Accessories: Bling, Scalloped loop edge punch, ribbon

Welcome Little One!

I did make this card for a gal at work. She is a first time grandmother to a little preemie boy....fighting for his life as we speak. He was born 6 weeks early and hanging on. My friend assures all of us that he is a small little fighter and he is thriving everyday and has had a few setbacks... I wanted to make her a lovely card for congratulating her on becoming a grandparent. This is a little bland for what I want to make for her. This is a start. I also made this card for a few layouts. I will put it into two challenges this week. Mojo Monday. Mojo189 sketch and Color throw down challenge CTD140.
