MAN did I struggle this week with this CARD.  I had an idea in my head but it didn't translate very well onto the paper.  :( The color challenge was baked brown sugar, almost artichoke and cherry cobbler.  The SUO challenge was Let it SNOW, so I combined, and I am not a big fan of this card.  It's okay, you win some, you lose some, you like some and others…..not so much.  Happy Tuesday everyone!! Until next time…Karen

THIS is the stamp I always reach for when making a card for a beloved family member or friend.  That's an awesome thing to hear from someone, "You are such a blessing in my life".  Right???  It's my favorite SU sentiment right now.  Even better than  "Carbs, Shmarbs, Eat the cake" haha.  But seriously - what would we do without those family members and friends who ARE the blessings in our lives??  I wouldn't want to imagine life without my faithful husband, or my children, or grandchildren.......how sad would that be?  Extended family, mom, sister, brothers - life would be so sad without them!  But oh how we tend to take it for granted....not meaning to.....but it happens!! I want to enjoy every day that I have with my precious grandchildren nearby and the days that I have to see the ones that aren't nearby....hour by hour!!  Life is short, make every day count! Right? Go hug someone you love,,,,,and I will too!! Until next time, Karen
