Hey All!!!

Happy Crafty Sunday!!!

Today was MUCH needed for a crafty day for me! After my rough week, I needed some "me" time to clear my head of all the thoughts I have had going on since the miscarriage happened. I have come to grips with the fact that God must have a plan for me and my family. I am prepared to leave it in his hands now!

So, can I tell you that I had 5 cards that I had to create for this week? I have birthday's and anniversary's coming from EVERYWHERE! I always say that I am broke for the ENTIRE month of April, lol! But, I can honesty say after tomorrow, I have OFFICIALLY created a card for every single event for my friends and family for an entire YEAR!!!! WOO HOO!!! No more Hallmarks people!

Today, I made 2 of my 3 birthday cards for this week and 1 of my 2 anniversary cards for the week! I have a video on how I made the cards. Here is a picture of them first!

A great collection of cards Jessica, but afraid you have combined far more challenges than Stampalot rules allow.

Still time to enter another one though.
