CAS card

Yes, another one, lol! I really have enjoyed doing those lately. This one was made using a sketch challenge from SCS..about 2 weeks ago I believe it was! Not a whole lot of stamping on this one, just the sentiment really! Here it is:

I used a flower punch for the flowers, using dp from KandCompany, wild raspberry, then just added the buttons, did a bit of scoring and made a cheater bow like Gina K showed on one of her videos at StampTV. There is always so much going on there, such an awesome place to learn and grow in techniques. I have heard of alot of the techniques, but seeing them first hand, being DONE, makes a world of difference! Jessica also offers Online Classes!! The next one is 'Fun with Glitters' that is coming up. If you click that link (online classes) it will take you right to the page with all the info on it.

Anyways, thats about it for today. I have been having a blast with some new stamps that I cannot speak of yet, but bet alot of you know what I am talking about, lol! Sneak Peeks start tomorrow for Gina K's new release (which is Thursday!) tomorrow on GINA'S BLOG!!Woohooo!!

On a personal note...thank you sooo much for all the encouraging words. I can't tell you how much they mean to me just by merely typing 'thank you' but it is the only thing I can do for now, so I say THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart and know how much you all have brightened my days! I am doing ok. I feel numb right now. Just going through the routine....nothing else I can do right now. I have checked out some apartments...I actually found one that I thought might be doable and ummm well, let's just say I'd be scared to live there and that comes from just driving by it, lol. soooo, that part of me still says its worth working out...and I am trying, but at times it gets to me and I just want to EXPLODE, lol! I want to tell everybody and anybody just what I think about everything, to heck with being politically correct and be done with it, haha! And I am never like that....I really am a calm kind person, ask my sister, lol. SHE is the one that always goes off and always has road rage, soooo bad!! And the thing is, I can forgive him, for destroying my trust in him, making me doubt his love for me...which is really what causes the destroying of the trust actually. I mean, if you doubt someone loves you, or cares for you, how can you trust them? I CAN forgive, but it doesnt mean I have to live in misery....I don't think God wants any of us to do that.....ugg...ok, sorry enough of allllllll THAT!!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend, and if you are in the USA, a safe Memorial Day!

Oh Cat, I just came across your posts about your marriage. I pray that God will touch your marriage and mend whatever is broken. It always makes me so sad when I hear about this stuff. I am so glad you have this hobby to help you get through the days. And you have so many friends here who care about you. Hugs to you Cat.

BTW, your CAS card is gorgeous. You used DP, I am so proud!!
