A Mother's Day Flower

I made this card for my Mom for Mother's Day, 
and luckily it fits for two current challenges ~ at
CASology and Less is More.  The challenge at 
CASology is "flower" and at Less is More the 
challenge is "die cuts."  The leaves are die cut.

I have not had any time to post lately, even though 
I have been making cards.  My life has been turned 
upside down in the past few weeks.  My son needed a 
rather intensive workup following a routine physical; 
I have been taking a class on advanced energy healing;
and we had to say "Good Bye" to a beloved kitty. 
Despite all of this craziness, there is so much to be 
grateful for.  The best of it is that my son has received
 a clean bill of health.  Our kitty is no longer suffering
and is in kitty heaven now.

Electric ... Blue

One more tonight for the "electric" challenge at CASology, 
using a bit of "grunge" for the challenge at Addicted to CAS.
My "electric" is the electric blue for the die cut sentiment.
"Anything goes" is the theme at Seize the Birthday and at

Swirling By

I have two cards for four challenges.  The first one is for CASology
and CAS(E) this Sketch.  The theme at CASology is "Electric."  
My thought was that there is often lightning with a tornado.
This card will be perfect for my son, who still has "storm-chaser" on
list of what he wants to be when he grows up ;(. 



My second card is a birthday card I made for my sister.
I am entering it at Seize the Birthday ~ where anything goes,
where anything goes.  Truthfully I made it for the "garden"
challenge last week at CASology, but did not have time
to post it.

I am skipping the supply lists, as time is in short supply these days.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
