Making Baby Steps

So this is card number 3 this week, and my space is no longer cluttered and dusty. I'm making progress!   Card challenges seem to always help me when I need some inspiration to create. So in the midst of a activity-packed weekend, I made sure to carve a little time for myself and create. The bonus was one of the family activities was my cousin's baby shower so it was a perfect fit.

I played along with Freshly Made Sketches for this card. Here's the sketch for this week.

I also want to take a moment and thank all of the men and women who have served or serve in our military now. Because of their sacrifices, we live in this free land. Happy Memorial Day!

Love Pushed Me

I haven't had much time for crafting lately. Between winter colds, torn muscles and every other family commitment we've had, I hadn't made a card in months. My stamps had dust on them! It was awful, but this week I pushed myself to make a card for my dear husband. We celebrated our wedding anniversary and I refused to share my love with a store bought card. It would have just been wrong.

 I really like how the card turned out. I followed the Fab Friday sketch challenge, but didn't get it linked up in time. Maybe I'll be more organized next week!

Thanks for stopping by.
