Just Sharing...

Just sharing a card I made about a week ago.  I have not had any time to even touch my crafty items this week, just running around a little.


A Hero Arts background with a PTI butterfly and sentiment.  I'm still in my "use up your scraps" mode.  All I can say is thank goodness for 6X6 paper pads, it means that scraps are really kept to a minimum.

I skyped with my Mom and Dad in-law earlier this week as well as with Lisa just a few hours ago!  It feels good to keep in touch with those you love.  I just wish the distance between us all was a lot less!

You know, I always believed that I was quite good with change, I've moved around so much, from a young age and then even more so once I got married, so after a while one gets used to it...well, so I thought.  But for some reason this move is really unsettling me.  I really hope that this feeling deep down actually settles down once we are in our home.  Right now I just seem to not be able to get any kind of routine going.  Sorry, I didn't mean to dump this on you, it just always feels better when shared amongst friends.

Hoping that you are all having a fabulous summer day!  And thank you for the visits to my blog, I am trying to visit some blogs too, just some days it's impossible, I hope you can understand.

You sure make those scraps look good Brenda! Love the scalloped polka dot strip. I hope things start to feel better for you soon. Sending a big ol' E hug!!

I love your "scrap" card :) Love the color combination too!

No matter how much we think we can handle change it is always somewhat difficult. I will be lifting you up that you might find yourself at "home" where you are. In the meantime continue to share you precious cards :)They make me smile!

Awww, Bren - I sure hope you get used to it too. Change really can be difficult. I know you've heard this before, but give yourself some more time. I know it's going to feel like home to you eventually. Sending a big hug to you! Love your beautiful card, by the way!

Wish I lived closer so I could give you a hug! Keep the faith-I 'm sure things will get a little easier once you are settled in your new home and can get a routine going:). Love how the butterfly looks against that bg! And I completely agree about the 6 x 6 pads- I don't even buy 12 x 12 sheets anymore!

Lovely card! Love that butterfly! :> I hope you settle too and get happy with your move! I bet once you live in the house it will feel better. Right now you aren't able to make a home so once you can it will feel like home! :> Sending you hugs!

Superb card Brenda. I'm sure that once you are in your own home with all your belongings around you, you'll feel more settled.

Pretty card Brenda!! Thinking of you and give it time, it must take a lot of getting used too for all of you!

Pretty card, Brenda! I need to do better with my scraps. I'm so sorry to hear you are feeling unsettled. Hopefully your renos will be done soon so you can get settled into your home. Sending you big hugs!!
