With Gratitude

Lately, as if I don't already struggle to find time to craft.....its been even worse! Our son JJ is in the hospital, he's been there for a few weeks now, he had 3 surgeries on Tuesday! Poor little guy! We spend as much time as we can visiting him...he's doing great and hoping he can come home soon!

 All the cards I DO make now are thank you cards! To send to the TON of loving people who have visited JJ and sent him gifts! He's a popular little boy!

 So, for this thank you card, I found a few challenges.....
 1.  CASology Week 138: Blossom!   With all the amazing entries on this one this week, mine is a long shot! but i'm entering it!

2.  The Challenge #27, I used the colors and the sketch! my sketch is mirror imaged though!

3.  AAA cards, Game 35, Bare Naked CAS.   I went with as much white space as I could!

I think that's all I got for this card....REALLY wish tomorrow wasn't MONDAY!!! ugh......why do the weekends go so fast?!

Thanks for visiting my blog today!!
