CC&CC #98 ~ Use A Sentiment and Other Musings

Hello blog friends!  Well, at last I am back and doing fine.  The concussion was a real experience.  Let's just say, if you hit your head and have some type of reaction, go see the doctor!  I tripped over a speed bump in a parking lot and fell on my right side.  When I did, my head jerked left then whip lashed to the right slamming onto the pavement.  WOW, I saw stars!  Thought all was ok, but the next day I had dizzy spells, headache, and almost fainted a couple times.  Off to the Dr. right away!

And I am just BURSTING with news about my new home journey!  I found my lot and it is bought and paid for!  It's almost a half acre and at the end of a very quiet road.  You enter the lot through a drive way that is like a tree tunnel, then opens up to what I named 
"Pine Meadow"!

I just finalized all the plans for the house and construction is due to begin VERY soon.  God willing, it will be done by about the 2nd week of November.  CANT WAIT!  I keep thinking how wonderful it will be to spend Christmas in my new home, sitting in front of my fireplace with a warm cup of cocoa and watching it snow, AWESOME!

OK, now for my card LOL!  Our theme is "Use A Sentiment".  Inky Impressions gave us 3  images to choose from.  I used "Kimmy's Letter".

We would love to have you join us!  Take a look at the lovely cards the DT have done to inspire your mojo!  AND, you may win some free digis.

Take care my friends, I hope to be visiting you all again soon!

Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenges #97 ~ Frame It!

Time for another CC&CC challenge.  This will be short because I have a concussion (will explain later) and the Dr. said no on the computer, texting, writing, video games, watching TV; you get the picture.  SO here is my card and I will be back on line soon!

Creative Knockouts Challenge #101 ~ Friendship

Welcome friends.  It is with sadness that I have to announce that this is my last post with Creative Knockouts.  My lot has been purchased (YAY!) and I have so many details to take care of with the building of my new house.  I just don't have the time to do my own blog (Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenges) and Creative Knockouts too.  It has been GREAT creating with them, and hopefully I will be able to return with them sometime in the future.

Here is my card using the image "Baby On Board" by A Random Fan.

I used a die cut for the background frame and also for the sentiment.  The image was colored with Copic's, and then I added the flowers.  Simple but I like it.  Take a look over at CK and check out all the great cards by the FAB DT!  They are a super group of creative ladies!
