This Looks Better …..

In real Life!!

2016

So I bought these pearls for Amy’s birthday album…but they just didn’t work…so what did I do???? plonked them on kraft , just what every good crafter would do..no? Well now I have these things stuck on kraft paper now what? Well I make the best of it.  Sadly this does look so much better IRL. My camera sucked all the life out of it.  The Flower is a gift from the wonderful Jeanne, the little rose in the center is made with a bit of tulip cardstock from the amazing tutorial Here by Cibele. The pearls I picked up at one of my LSS…but I am at a loss as to which one. The stamp is CTMH For every Occasion

I hope your Wednesday is going well!  Mine has been busy and full! Full of kids! Full of family! It really is what it’s all about. I need to focus on my ‘Big Picture Plan’ in my moments of fear and worry…’am I doing the right thing’ panic attacks. Yes! They are with me and experiencing what it is to have a parent that LOVES them and is involved with them!  They know I care. So it is OK. At least this is my mantra LOL. OK enough blab from me.

If you have time Go over and give Samie a hug!!! She needs a lift right now. After reading THIS post I have to say I felt dearly for her. Maybe a little prayer may help.

Have a wonderful  rest of Wednesday and Thursday

Enjoy!

Your card is beautiful! Those pearls and perfect with the crocheted flower, and I'll have to check out the video on how to make that sweet little flower you used in the center.

As for your concerns about parenting, the very fact that you are concerned will make all the difference. You're doin' it right, girl!

Have a great Thursday, friend!

What a beautiful card, Sarah! You are so creative! Thanks for the mention about the flower and the tutorial on the insert...I have to try that(whenever I can head back to my craft room)!

You are a fantastic parent and your kids will truly appreciate ALL that you do for them. If not today, then soon. Hang in there and know you are doing right by them! Hugs!!!

I'm so sorry to hear of your friend's troubles.
