I Can’t Find

ANYTHING!!!! When you can’t even find a spot in your craft space big enough for your coffee mug you know things have gone to far. Why did I let things get so bad?!! I don’t even know where to begin. Yesterday I had a none stop crafty day so the plan is to schedule a few posts sharing those cards, then I’ll take sometime to dig thru the mess before even trying to create anything else.

My card today was made a few months ago, before Jim got sick. BTW he is doing quite well. I made this for and sent it to my sister. Although things have improved some for her she still has many layers of her onion to peel.


I used a glue pen on the raised Swirls embossed card and heat embossed with Sparkle EP. I printed the sentiment then cut to shape, the sand was edged with Tea Dyed DI and dotted with the same by using the end of a paint brush. The turtle was stamped and heat embossed. I stamped, colored and fussy cut the various elements from the Hero Arts clear Fish and Shells set. Took a while but I think the end result was worth the effort.

I’ll try to comment on your blogs just so you’ll know I haven’t been buried alive in the Closet.

  7. This is officially my new favorite of yours! What a darling darling scene. I love all things beach or sea life related although I don't seem to create many of these cards myself come to think of it.
