Thank you

Yesterday, I didn't post any card and I was talking of how much I miss my family. And I am so touched that several of you, most I have never even met, took the time to send comforting words and virtual hugs to me. I know that most of you visit my blog for the cards and the fact that you were willing to reach out to me in a time when I am feeling down, helped me to smile & feel better. Thank you so much for the comfort and support. Ladies, you all made me teary eyed with your thoughtfulness. From the bottom of my heart, thank you and I am so grateful to have known you even if it's only though blogging.

Today, I still feel a bit sad, but you know me, I always try to look at things on the bright side, too. Like hubby said, at least I can call and with the internet, facebook, etc., I can still share many things with my family. Granted, it's not the same as seeing them in person, being able to hug them, it's still better than nothing. I love my mom so much and she knows that and that's what matter. She knows I'd do my best to try to see her as often as I can.

On more cheerful note, how about a card?  I made this card a few days ago for this week Wee Memories "In The Forest" challenge sponsored by Third Coast Stamp. Since I love fairies and in my mind, they usually live in the forrest, that's what I used for my card.



I think the pic came out pretty good. I found a great deal on Ebay (yes, Ebay you should pay me for advertising you all the time) for photo-tent. I mostly take pics of my cards in the evening, so it's hard to get good lighting. But the photo tent seems to help. This was my 1st attempt, so still need lots of practice.

I hope you can join us in this fun challenge! Help us spread the words by joining the challenge will you. Each week, there's always fun prizes for the challenge. Okay peeps, I have to go. Today is cleaning the house top to bottom day! Especially my scrapbook room that totally looks like shipwreck. Time to but more container. Have a super duper fun weekend!
