First off let me thank some very generous people here in blog land for sending me some beautiful birthday cards, thank you so much for thinking of me. I didn't even see any of my family on my birthday because I was helping a friend out taking care of their aunt and my friend. She had to have a heart cath done and then came home. The doctor didn't find any blockages, which was a good thing, but what was causing her mild heart attacks? Well...turns out that her blood was way to thick. The doctor could hardly get the cath through her blood! So she is on beta blockers now, so hopefully that will do the trick. Once I get my birthday cards photographed, I will be adding them to a "cards from friend's" page. That is my next goal to get done.
This weekend, Sunday to be exact, our local hospice is having a butterfly release. So myself and my boys are all releasing a butterfly in memory of my husband. Bittersweet!! He has been on my mind so much here of late. I do well and then bam! I'm blue and teary/weepy, missing him so much. Funny how it comes on like that. I just finished staying with my friends elderly aunt for 5 days over the holiday. I was happy to help out so they could go away, but am so glad to be back at my own house and in my own bed. Anyway that is just a little of what's going on in my life at the moment. Sorry if I have bored you! You know I tend to rattle on like the old fool that I am!!!
Ok here is the first two cards I have to share. Both using the same technique as the last card I did. I wanted to try it out a few more times because I just love the look. lol I think it is such a pretty and elegant look. I'm not the best at coloring, but I think it will pass mustard. Is that the saying???? lol I'm pretty pleased with the way these came out and look forward to trying some more different flowers in this technique.
As always thanks for stopping by and visiting a spell on the patio with me. Your comments always bring sunshine into my life! I know that I am behind on my visiting and commenting, but I promise that I will be by soon to try and catch up with what you all have been making!!! Crafty hugs, Brenda
