Thinking of you

This week was a sad one - there were some terrible car accidents that claimed the lives of local children. One of them was seventeen and the other nine. The nine year old attended the same school as my boys and was in the same grade as Chester. This lead to some serious heart-to-hearts in our house and I have been counting my blessings a little more often these past few days. A reminder of just how short life can be and how quickly life can change.....
I've been so busy that I haven't uploaded photos for at least a few weeks. When I did, I found these photos from my little getaway with Danderella at the beginning of the month. I am thrilled with this photo just after sunrise. The view was fantastic, but it was hard to believe that there was no snow! We basically hung out in our fabulous hotel room for the weekend reading, knitting, gabbing & crafting. It was blissfully quiet and relaxing, just what a couple of busy Moms needed! We didn't really shop, except for a visit to the local wool shop - which has almost got me wanting to start clicking those needles myself. I am holding back for now.....

Anyhow, I did manage to make a couple of cards while we were "hiding out". Here is one of them using Bo Bunny's fabulous ETC. line. Stay tuned for more using these papers. I also had some fun using the new fabric tape I got at Christmas.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend! Now, go hug your loved ones and tell them what they mean to you,


What I used:
Bo Bunny - Etc. available at DAT'S
Fabric Tape
Bazzill Basics Paper rub-ons


  1. beautiful the fabric tape flower. so creative!

    sad to hear about young ones being taken so early. my heart aches for all who loved them. my sympathies xx

  2. Wow...that pic of the sunrise is unbelievable...I think you need to make a bunch of those pic cards that you would be great for a sympathy card. Love the card that you made too! Lee-Ann :)

    ps: I should hope that there was no flax in the spaghetti sauce...I'd be forced to call the local Italian Society so they could ticket or fine you or something :)

  3. I hear you Shanna. The children that were in the car accident were my cousins. I haven't seen them in a while but still felt pain for their mom and the need to hug my children more each day. Beautiful card!

  4. We've had some moments like that here too this week, Shanna.

    Your weekend away sounds wonderful, and looks so beautiful there! Glad you girls were able to get away.

    Love your card, especially that sentiment!


Thanks for visiting! I love to hear what you think of my work! :)
