Just swinging in to say HELLO.......

Hello everyone........
What a rolling type coaster life has been at our house this last month or more.
We have had alot of family illness and one resulting in death. So I am away now taking care of funeral arrangments and such. So the title of my card today is very fitting.
now I just noted on my card that I have the title ALL WRONG!! Now that shows you just how upset I have been and that my mind is not with my card making. I guess. I will have to fix it when I return home. sigh...
Challenges to enter:
CRAZY4CHALLENGES: create a card that has a tree somewhere on it
POLLYCRAFT: teen cards
WILD ORCHID: punch it out
I have used a new digi image from Polly Craft for my card and colored her with my copic markers.
I have used some old scraps from my scrap bag for my card.
Added a few perals, ribbon and flowers to finish off my card.
I have used my Spellbinders for around the image and the circle behind it. This card has been sewn and inked with my Ranger distressed inks.
I hope to be back and posting like normal mid next week. I MISS MY CRAFTING TIME and blog hopping. It is something that helps me to relax. But no time for that right now.
Thank you to all of you for the special emails and such that you have sent. Thank you for the very kind comments that you leave for me!! I loved them all and appreciate them all!!

I am so sorry for your loss, Janiel. I hope the funeral is a celebration of the life of your loved one and that your hubby, you and the children gain some comfort from the support of friends and family during this sad time.
