Peace on Earth


Happy Monday...the last five days or so have been a whirlwind...Pat's surgery had to be rescheduled due to a small infection on his knee (hoping he can have it this Thursday if it all clears) and life with four kids has been busier than the normal busy.  There are days when I have to remind myself that I although I have four kids there are new experiences all the time and we're all learning as we go.   So...reminding myself to relax (and some days those reminders are better than others).

I did have time to watch most of the videos from the Holiday Card class and had a couple hours after dinner on Saturday night to make a few cards.  I loved Debby Hughes card from day one and this one is inspired by her. The gold stripes are made using Versamark and gold embossing powder. Love them!

The card below is inspired by Laura Bassen's card on Day 4, but in no way does her amazing style justice!  This is a very, very simple masked card using yummy Verve stamps.

  2. Beautiful projects... and life is always reminding us that we don't always know what's in store... I just had the realisation that I'm going to have to miss my am workouts when Dan's out of town... eek (he's gone for 2 weeks!).

  3. I love them both, Lynn! Beautiful work!

    Hope you can keep yourself calm and relaxed - I know that's not easy with four, busy boys and a hubby who still needs surgery. Hope it all goes well - I'll be thinking of you! ♥

  8. Your cards certainly DO do justice to the inspiration artists, Lynn! I love them both!!

    I'm sorry to hear Pat's surgery had to be put off. That's always a PITA all the way around. I hope it goes smoothly on Thursday! I can hear you calmly saying to your menfolk: "Everybody just breath." Hugs, Darnell
