I'm So Behind!!!!


Yes, I'm so behind I'm combining challenges!
I am in a couple blog groups on SCS. The last day of the month I am too post a creation for a Crafters of Faith challenge. On the 5th of the month, I'm to post for the Crafty Gals blog group. Well, I've been so sick that I just haven't felt like getting things done.....and that doesn't just apply to crafting. LOL
I've felt bad for a over a month. Ugh....being sick stinks. But, I've made myself get into my craft room.

The Crafters of Faith challenge was hosted by Olga. She wanted to see a 5x7 card for Mother's with a die cut.
The Crafty Gals challenge is hosted by Tracie. She wanted to see a creation for someone we love using at least 3 layers, 2 embellishments and 1 sentiment.

Here's what I came up with for both...

You know me...the Clean and Simple lady....I barely got the 3 layers in (and they're not full layers!). My circle and scallop behind are my die cuts. I hope a name counts as a sentiment! LOL
My embellishments are melon mambo polka dot ribbon (I'm hoarding this retired stuff!) and some pretty pink flowers I got in a package from Darlene this week (hiya Sweetie! Thank you). I added some green pearls to the middles and that's it!
I've never made a 5x7 size card before. Thank you Olga for getting me out of my comfort zone! I enjoyed it. :)

Thank you for stopping by.
I hope you can stop by the other Crafty Gals blogs today and see what they made!

Until next time...
Blessings...
