Here's Hoping!

Here's hoping that there won't be too many more YKWs (migraines) in the near future. According to my neuro nurse, the weather has wreaked havoc on many of us, so I'm praying the low pressure centers go around us for a while. That's where I've kinda been. My crafting and commenting went by the wayside for a bit, but I'm really hoping that things have calmed down, and I can get back to normal.

Thanks for all your kind words about my little darling grandkids. It was a blast having them here, and I wish we all lived closer together!


I have a card for a few challenges. I saw a new-to-me challenge courtesy of Carol, and decided I might try to play there. It's called, Cards In Envy. Go check it out! And while I'm at it, the anything goes theme at SSS Wednesday Challenge seemed like a good idea, too! It went together really quickly, and I like how it turned out very much. The inspiration is from the current Muse Challenge; a Kay Miller card:

Share Our Badge!



I didn't have that pretty cityscape, but used something linear from my stash. I was also inspired by the bouquet and the sequins.


The leaves and flowers are from Altenew, and the sentiment and stripes are from Avery Elle. I used various inks, including ME and Fresh Ink. The sequins were gifted to my by Ardyth. And that's all it took. EZPZ lemon squeezy!! Have a good evening, and

This is quite pretty and I love the delicate colors. The barometric pressure wreaks havoc on me as well so I hope we can get some clear skies soon!
