Love You

I'm just way too busy lately.  Life as usual is hectic and stressful and so little time for myself.  I am still spending the majority of my time caring for my mom.  She continues to spiral downwards ever so quickly.  So many tear filled days.  I treasure every moment I spend with her regardless if it's a bad day as I feel her days are numbered.  We are getting ready to move her into Assisted Living where she will be cared for.  I'm sad over all of this, but relieved that she will have people caring for her.  To actually have some free time to craft is not that often, hard to focus on, but a joy.  I've got a layout to share with you today that I made using the February kit and sketch from Artful Delight and one which I am entering in a couple of challenges,  Zeus and Zoe February Love Challenge and Inkido's Black and White Photo Challenge.

I really enjoyed working with the Authentique Renew Papers in the February kit and pumped them up a little throwing in some pink.

 Love this cluster!  Lots of fussy cut work and some Purple Pumpkin embellishments.


You still have plenty of time to enter the February sketch challenge at Artful Delight.  One lucky winner will receive their choice of a March scrapbook kit or card kit.  I can guarantee that you will love the March kit!

Hope to get by to visit you . . . will try my best.
Thanks for stopping by!
. . . Debbie

Left you some love at Artful Delight on this one Debbie...It is beautiful!! I'll be saying prayers for you and your Mom, as you get ready to make the transition to Assisted Living. My grandmother was moved into an Assisted Living facility and I am so amazed at the big improvements in her health and mobility. Hoping good things for your Mom!!

Hi Debbie, Just stopping by to make sure that I have you in my blog reader so I don't miss any of your posts! Dealing with your mom is hard on you but I am sure she is grateful for everyday that she gets to spend with you. LOVE your LO, and you did put a lot of effort into all that fussy cutting, but it has such an impact, well worth the time! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥
