There are days the Trucking has to wait...

There are days when the trucks just need to come second on my list of priorities and I have to come first.  As many of you may know, my husband is currently overseas and has left me with his trucking business.  I do the best I can to keep it running, but there are days when I just need to put aside the trucks and focus on something that I love to do...Today was one of those days...Had things taken care of to the point that I could spend a few hours crafting, especially since I haven't been able to do anything for over a week...So here are the cards I created today...Some I am in love with...others not so much...But, all is well in the crafting world!!  Enjoy and don't forget to leave some love!!


This is my first attempt at stitching a design...I don't care for this one too much, but ehh, have to start somewhere right....

Like I said I wasn't to impressed with the final result, but for the first time....

Not sure what I think of this one either...but ehh, kinda cute...

Short...Sweet...Simple...and a splash of color...



Upclose of the stamp I colored in with Martha Stewart Glitter pens..So pretty!

Well hopefully you enjoyed these cards...I am hoping to maybe get a couple more done tonight, but we shall see I am kinda liking just relaxing now...Well...have a great night and hope to be back soon with some more creations!

Goodnight and Happy Crafting!!


  1. I love all the cards! You did a great job with the stitching card. You have to start somewhere and you will get better. Now you learned what to do differently. I really like the first card. I have to it's hard to pick a favorite but that one would be it.

  2. Thanks!!! The first is my favorite also, but the two Mom's cards come in a very close tied second place... LOL I got the stitching with a machine down but, yea that hand stitchin, not sure least you said...gotta start somewhere...I am feeleing another day where it might be about crafting again..

  3. Katie the cards are very lovely. The butterfly is my favorite also and I really like the circle card. I appreciate the simplicity of the thank you card w/ purple backing--good flow of the colors.
    Not to worry about "ability." You have been making cards/scrapping quite a bit longer then some! It is good to try, but to also know where your niche is.
    I am glad you got to have this small retreat. It's therapeutic.

  4. Thank you Krista! You are is VERY THERAPEUTIC!!!!!!
