Make a Wish


Oh was I busy in the craft room yesterday...I have a lot to share with you this week...starting off with two cards today!  First up is a card for our niece, Erin, who turns 12 this week!  And along with a little something tucked in the card for her, I'm sending her prayers for a recovery.  She suffered a pretty nasty concussion in gymnastics practice and has been out of school for a week already recovering.  For her card, I kept it very clean and simple and am playing along with the ColourQ Challenge along with the Paper Smooches WCMD Challenge to use pink on a card.

And the second is a baby card (and this was actually a reject from submission...but no worries there) and I'm entering this in the CASology Challenge.  I think these little Verve giraffes are absolutely adorable!

Happy Sunday!  Hope you have a fabulous day!

PS Be sure to stop by tomorrow for a week of Christmas inspiration!

  4. So happy to hear that you had time for yourself! I'm typing this on the computer instead of the phone so this time there is no spelling errors! I got your package mailed out this weekend, I hope you enjoy! Your cards are a lot of fun, I hope your niece gets well soon and the giraffe card is simply adorable. Can't believe that one didn't get picked up for the call!

  13. I am so sorry to hear about Erin! Concussion is such a hindrance and pain...I hope Erin has a full recovery. It will take some time...she is in my thoughts and prayers! I love your cards today. Both are just delightful! You never cease to amaze me, Lynn!

  15. The Verve baby giraffe is adorable... I luv them too!! Sounds like you had a busy stamping day...yeah!

  16. Loving the pink card for Erin. Sure it will cheer her. Hoping she recovers quickly.

    The raffie card is beyond adorable!!! Love how you paper pieced him. Their loss re: the submission.

    Just home from the soccer pitch. Boys won the tournament!! You could not have asked for a better final game!! I'm still jacked up about it. Yellow card, red card, leading, tie, losing, winning, tie, shot out, we win 3-2! It was nerve wracking but two very good teams that battled it out to the very end. Looking forward to time with my stamps tomorrow :)

  19. Oh I hope that sweet girl feels better, a concussion sounds awful! This baby card is SO darling! Love that little paper pieced giraffe! Just adorable, makes me feel better about my "rejects" if this one didn't get snapped up:) Hope you had a great weekend, big hugs!

  20. Your niece is going to love her sweet card...I just can't imagine a concussion that keeps you out of school for a week! I hope she is back to normal soon. Also, can I saw how much I LOVE your second card?!?! Having that adorable giraffe stick his head out of the little banners is a fabulous idea!

  22. Poor Erin! I hope she's feeling better and back on her feet soon (or back on her hands given that she's a gymnast and all...) :)
    These are both super fun but I especially love that paper pieced giraffe. He's adorable!
