Thank You

Before I get to any cards, I want to say thanks to you. You left so many nice comments and offered many prayers for my son. Both are sincerely appreciated. My darling son is holding his own at this point, with pain that never goes below a "6," and is often higher, on a 1 -10 scale. He sees an Orthopedic Surgeon tomorrow morning, and I am praying that he'll say.... "Why didn't you come here first!?! We can fix your problem just like that!!" But no matter what happens, we all trust that God will care for him in the best possible way. I'll let you know what happens....

Once the chores are done, I've been crafting, trying to keep busy and my mind occupied. I've made about 10 cards in the last two days, but will only show you two here today.  Jenni's yellow beauty at Muse really captured my imagination. So I just had to play again. This time with some yellow and white polkie dots, that way I can play over at the City Crafter Challenge, where, guess what the theme is...yep, polka dots! Perfect! And N@Ali has a wonderful CAS sketch for us over at CAS(E) This Sketch. Had fun with that one!






Ready for some yellow?


Ta Daaaa! Now those are polkie dots!! I kept to the general premise of the sketch, but changed things up a bit as I'm sure you can tell. All the papers are from my scrap files, and I can't tell you where I got those little daisies (which, btw, have polka dotted centers!). The sentiment is from MFT with some Versafine black ink. And believe it or not, those yellows are matchy-matchy...but naturally, it doesn't look like they are no matter how much editing I did....

A very QAEZPZ card for CTS...


Some strawberry cardstock from the Stamps of Life, white and black scraps, an AE frame die, a WPlus9 'thanks' die, and the sentiment and sweet little airplane are from LF. So easy! So fun! So long! Happy dances everyone!!

Oh these are fabulous!! Ten cards? How do you make so many? It takes me too long just to do one. (insert roll eyes here. ) Love the polka dots as they are a favorite of mine right now. In yellow they ROCK! Your second card is so pretty. I have that set and think I need to CASE this to whip up some thank you's!! Still praying for your son!!

Rose said...

Your yellow polka dot card is gorgeous, so bright & happy! The yellows look like a perfect match to me. Both cards are lovely but how do you do it? Ten cards in two days! Can't wait to see the rest. Sincerely hope your son keeps improving & finds some relief from his pain. Thinking of you.

Barb said...

I do hope you have good news about your son tomorrow Bev. I'll be thinking about you.

Your cards are lovely. The yellow is beautiful. Barbxx

Ten cards? WOW! I *should* have made 10 cards, or more, what with my husband being away all weekend, but nope! He's off again in a couple weeks, so we'll see if I'm more focused then. HA! Your card...excuse me, but SQUEAL! I LOVE x LOVE it! Daisies, polkie-dots, bright, sunshiny yellow! Total love! Your paper airplane thanks...ultra sweet. That thanks die is cool! Praying that the surgeon has a snap-of-the-fingers quick fix for Tad. We'll be waiting your updates!
Hugs, love and missing you~c

TK said...

Two beautiful cards, and some good news for your son - praying that things continue on a good swing.

Susanne Vargas said...

Yellow, polka dots, daisies - love all those things and absolutely love your card for the Muse. And that sweet thank you card, too! Now I am looking forward to seeing the other 8 cards you made! Wow, I can only dream about being so productive! And yes, please keep us posted about your son's progress, we'll keep praying for him.

Darnell J Knauss said...

You're very welcome, Bevie! Your bloggie family cares and you would do the same for any of us! You sure do make fantastic cards under stress, my friend! TEN?! I love both of these and think you really nailed the challenges ~ especially for the polka dots!! Sending huge hugs and love, Darnell

Geri said...

Polkie dots and daisies...love it! So fresh and so spring-like! Awesome dimension in the pretty daisies too!

'Flying by' is clean & simple perfection! I see a bit of a shadow under the plane...is the airplane actually popped up or did you color in the shading? Either way - looks great!

We're heading out Tuesday morning so likely won't be by to visit until we get back but Will keep the BABES updated whenever I can!

Anita in France said...

Gorgeous yellow and fun polka dots, Bev ... so sunny, happy and bright ... and so you ... there's a smile spread all over my face! Love that stacked shadowed sentiment with the tiny paper plane ... the pop of colour against the white is fabulous! Will be thinking and praying most especially for Tad this morning. Big hugs & bisous, Anita :)

Those yellows are fabulous, and as matchy-matchy as they could be! You've made two beauties here, Bev ... thanks for playing cards with us at CTS and Muse!!

Love the texture from the layered daisies and the bright sunny feeling! So glad you joined us at Muse, my friend!

Bobby said...

That little airplane is the perfect image for CTS, Bev, and who wouldn't love all that bright Spring yellow with polka dots and flowers.

Leigh Penner said...

Two fabulous cards, Bev! I love your take on Jenni's card -- it's so cheerful and fun! And wonderful take on the CTS sketch -- it's perfect!

Stella said...

Bev your cards are gorgeous and you nailed our theme. I love that dotte dpapaer! Thanks so much for joining us at CCCB! Good to see you!

Brenda said...

I pray that the orthopedic surgeon will say that too Bev! Can't wait to see what happens from here. I just pray that they find a way to relieve your son from all his pain.

Your cards are fabulous! I love, love, love the yellow polka dotted one! Daisies, polka dots and the color yellow-can't go wrong with that combo! This card just makes me happy. Your second card just makes me smile. I think it is so cute and fun! Hugs, Brenda

Ros Crawford said...

What wonderful cards Bev! Thanks so much for playing along at CCCB!!

Hannelie said...

I am always ready for yellow... and polka dots!
LOVE LOVE both these cards Bev !
So glad you're joining us at CTS!

Petra Swart said...

Such fun polka dots and the flowers are stunning, Bev!!! Love the black matting of the flower panel and the thin black strip on the card base!!! A beautiful card!!! Your CTS card is so fun and reminds me of how we used to fly those paper planes when we were young!!!! So cute!!!!

Jen Mitchell said...

These are beautiful Bev. I love to see bright yellow cards this time of year when I'm tired of seeing the dull gray and brown of winter everywhere. The yellow reminds me that spring is just around the corner! And your paper airplane card is fabulous. I really love how you layered the sentiment die cut with just a hint of black showing at the bottom! I hope your son is feeling up to snuff soon. I'll keep those prayers flowing your way!

donna mikasa said...

Love your take on the sketch, Bev! Amazing dimension on the paper airplane.
Oh, and I love your profile pic, too!

Tracey McNeely said...

Love how you usually posts two or three cards at once, these are lovely. The yellow flowers with the polka dot paper are so cheery for springtime. The LF set that I never did get but still love so much even today, what a fabulous thank you card!
