Test using Blogaway app



April Kitty kindly let me use this old photo of her to test out this new blogging app I downloaded to my Droid. We'll see how it works.

Sympathy for Neighbor



One of my neighbors passed away last week and I made this card for his widow. I chose the colors from SCS Color Challenge 230 and the sketch from SCS Sketch Challenge 277. Since it is such a beautiful day outside, I took the photo from my back deck with the camera on my Moto Droid.

Did you miss me?

Hi Everyone!

I haven't posted in like 6 months and you all are probably wondering what happened to me. Well first off, I did pass the NCLEX! Thank you everyone for all of your prayers and well wishes. I started work as a critical care nurse in an ICU in August so that has kept me very busy as I continue to study critical care nursing when I get home at night and on my days off. Everyone says that the first year of becoming a nurse is the hardest. My job is definitely difficult but I love it!

This is the first card that I have made since my last one about 6 months ago. It felt good to get back in to the craft room and play.

Recipe:

Stamps: Fox and Friends, Season of Friendship, Soft Summer - SU
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Very Vanilla, Melon Mambo, DP
Ink: Dusty Durango, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Embossing Folder, Die, Brads
