Well let's see, I'm Mom to Victoria and Mitchell, wife to Dick; I'm special to all three, who are special to me,and that makes me the Luckiest Person on Earth. Victoria is married to Andew Knipp. I love being a mother-in-law. Hope he loves his mother-in-law. I love the comfort of being home. I'm blessed with a huge craft room, and an endless desire to create. One of my favorite things in this life is meeting people. I have the gift of gab, and can talk to most anyone.

It's All About YOU!

Hi All:

Papertake Weekly Challenge this week is to do a card in yellow and mail it in. It is to benefit the BBC Children In Need charity. That’s a great cause. Check it out. I’m getting mine in the mail tomorrow. I finished it up today. Hope it is acceptable enough.

There is a story behind this card, which I am afraid is quite mean of two of my girlfriends. They know who they are . . . Barb and Vickie! On Saturday, my girlfriends and myself got together at another girlfriend’s house for a class. Tessie was hosting us over at her house, and teaching a nice little class of an Upsy-Daisy Box with four cards (you can order the kit on her blog, already cut.) Everything was going well until Barb mentioned that we should go to Hobby Lobby, and I said that I needed to go to AC Moore. I actually spoke before I thought, because I had promised my son, Mitchell, 15, that I would pick him up from his grandparents at 5:00. We all started discussing how much we wanted to go, however, Tessie could not go, and then I thought I shouldn’t do that to my son, and I backed out. I told Barb & Vickie that I would just go home and work on something for my blog, since Vickie & Tessie have been on me about posting anyway. Since, I backed out, they told me I better have something on my blog, and so here it is. I hope they approve! It actually made me work in my craft room, too, since I have been having somewhat of a motivation problem.

I just want to thank you for stopping by and hope you check out the Papertake Weekly Challenge, as well as the blogs of my friend, Tessie, and my "so-called" friend, Vickie (lol.) Hope your day is great!

Hi Karen, This card is beautiful. The colors that you chose really makes this card pop. I love how you colored the girl. You did a fantastic job on this card.
