Thank you - like it or not........

I was in a card making frenzy yesterday for a craft bazaar the end of November. It is always a lot of fun stamping cards, but when it is for a sale, it's even better!!

I like the fact that any card is a seller and even if ther
e is one card where you don't especially love the end result, someone else is sure to like it!!

And you know the card I am talking about. The one where it just needs something, and you can't quite put your finger on it, but you have spent so much time on it already, that you put it down and say "I give up!".

That is how I feel with this card - it really needs something to pull it all together, but I am not going to agonize over it any longer!!

This was one of Jen del Muro's sketches from the early summer, and I made this card back then, and put it aside to work on it later. Well, now it is later, and I can't do any more to it!!

I used Cornish Heritage Farms, Kim Hughes set "Making the Grade" and used Cosmo Cricket Little Boys paper, with Memory Box cardstock and Papertrey Ink stampers select for the base.

Off to get another mammogram done today. I had one two weeks ago and then last week I got the call. So I think they do an ultrasound this time. Anyway, that's what's going on.

Maybe, say a little prayer, if you can.


  1. Bonnie~ You are in my thoughts and prayers lady! Know I am thinking of you and wish you a clean bill of health. Nice teacher card! Hugs, chris

  2. Bonnie -
    I love this card! I think it's perfect, and so will lots of other people.
    Sending you good health vibes today!

  3. I hope everything turns out great Bonnie. We are definitely thinking of you : )

    Your card is perfect just the way it is but I know what you mean.

  4. Sending lots of warm wishes for health and happiness your way!!! Please keep me posted, ok? I know EXACTLY the card you're talking about by the way, and think it's so funny you posted this today b/cI was working on one that was frustrating me this morning...and guess what? the sketches are VERY similar!!! Too funny...must be something w/ that sketch and not us LOL..jk...Jen's the best! Big hugs, friend!!!

  5. It's really cute, silly!

  6. Hi Bonnie! This card is adorable! I love it! I've been a bad blogger. I'm posting, but not finding time to make the rounds and visit. Thanks for casting a vote for me at Cosmo! I didn't come close to winning, but that's OK, it was fun trying. OK, a mammogram phone call. That would make me nervous, and I read your post above about STILL not knowing, so I will be checking back to see when you finally get told what's going on. I am thinking about you! Take care!!

  7. I love this, Bonnie! The layout and colors are fantastic!

    I hope all went well with the ultrasound! Hugs!
