Birthdays like golf.....don't keep count

My co-worker was off this entire week so I had a crazy and long week of working a lot of hours. So therefore, even though I am needing to pack I need some time to destress. I saw this sentiment on Pinterest and just thought it was too funny and appropriate. So here is a quick and fun birthday card that I made.

Serene orchids

I found this image I had from Jeremiah Ketner "Orchids" and I just love the image. I have a distress oxide background that I made a while back so I don't even remember the colors that are involved. I love the deep in thought, serene look which is where I feel that I have been as I have been trying to go through my belongings and pack up my house as I am getting ready to move. When I get to the craft area I think I will have a much different look...….

Sometimes don't you just want to SCREAM

 I think that we all have days when we want to scream and can understand when someone does. Especially during these crazy Covid pandemic times. I think that everyone has their own personal issues and then we just add the layers of dealing with others, politics, finances, health, personal believes, faith and we just get blasted with social media and it's overwhelming. As a nurse that gets to review inpatient hospital stays I can honestly say that people are having more mental health admissions, suicide attempts, alcohol and drug related admissions, accidents and then just not going to the doctor so more late diagnosis of cancers, heart disease and many conditions.
 That's why I make my cards to de-stress. Please remember to find time for "you" and take care of yourself. Hugs.

I have a bunch of Lavinia stamps and I just love the silhouette images. I needed a couple of birthday cards so I just grabbed my Distress Oxide inks, painters tape and blending brushes and picked three colors.

Mom rainboot with flowers

I have set a goal to use my stash of dies that has a layer of dust on them and have never been used. For this one I was encouraged by the photo inspiration for JUGS. I used Sizzix, Impression Obsession and Die Version. I dry embossed the white background with Cuttlebug folder. For the watercan I ink distressed it with distress ink of Old Paper and Tea Dye. I had fun using my scraps.

Happy Anniversary

My friend Andrea came up with an awesome sketch and I made 3 cards using it. They were so fun and I just needed a variety of cards so it was perfect.
The first one I used the color scheme from JUGS for an anniversary card. I dry embossed the white paper with hearts and sprayed it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. I layered the colored papers us and added a ribbon on top of my border punch. I used my Spellbinder die cuts for the larger hearts and my Fiskars punches for the smaller hearts. Then the icing was to add a bling to each heart and the sentiment that I computer generated.

Gardeners

Well I am not a gardener. My Dad was a potato farmer; however, I have no desire to have a garden, heck I can't even keep plants alive. The cat I have now I don't think would bother a plant, since she doesn't go after flower bouquets like my male cat did. She went and got a hair cut today so she had enough drama. I went out to get some groceries the other night and when I came home....my garage door wouldn't open. Today I had a repair person out and as my Dad predicted "my spring was out." Needless to say $600 later I can get my car in the garage and we missed garbage day. So obviously I did some coloring to try to help my stress and got this new image from Twistoon and a sentiment from TLC, Create
