Life is tough - Masculine Card

Hello Friends!   I hope everyone is doing well and staying warm.  Although, some of us are staying too warm.  The weather is so crazy in US right now with cold freezing weather and snow on the East coast and hot weather on the West coast.  

I created a one layer card for a friend of mine who is going through a really rough time.  I would appreciate prayers for Jason, for those of you who are willing to pray for him.  He really needs all the prayers and support he can get right now.  At times like this, I feel so helpless.  It is hard to be in a situation where you cannot help a friend; but I always turn to prayer when that happens.

I would also like to ask for prayers for my 15 yr. old grandson, Jayden.  He is a really good kid; but was living in an apartment where there were a lot of rough kids and he got into some trouble.  He is the only boy they are going after for something he was bullied into doing. 

He has to go to court sometime in the next month or two; and was required to have an attorney; so that doesn't sound too good.  He lives in FL and they are very tough on everyone in that state.  He needs to learn to make better decisions going forward.  He has been a diabetic since 4 yrs. old and has always had trouble fitting in at school.  He is bullied and made fun of all the time.  I am not making excuses for him; but it explains his behavior of following the leader and wanting to be part of a group.

Here is the card I created.  I watched a video from Jackie Bolhuis; which is where I got the idea.  Here is the link to her video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMEryedtKTE&feature=youtu.be.

Christmas Card Using Conie Fong "Snowy With Poinsettia" with CTMH Holly Jolly Paper

Hello Friends!  I have been trying to get a head start on my Christmas cards.  I usually have more made by now; but this year I have been a little slow.  Once Conie Fong started creating new adorable Christmas images; I felt like getting busy with them.  LOL!

I used Conie Fong "Snowy with Poinsettia" for this cute card.  It was so much fun to color and to create.  Love her sweet images and they can be colored to match any of the papers that you currently have.  I love this new blue shade with the white snowflakes; which is part of our CTMH Holly Jolly Paper Pack.  I like blues with pinks for Christmas.

Birthday Card for Husband Using CTMH Hawthorn Cardmaking Stamp & Thin cuts

Hello Friends!  I can't believe it is November 4th already.  Time flies when you are having fun; or even if you aren't.  LOL!  I hope everyone is doing well.  It will soon be Thanksgiving; which is a time to be grateful for everything and everyone.  

I tried to get this card done earlier; but I actually got it created on my husband's birthday.  His birthday is Halloween; so we went out for an early dinner and then he handed out candy to the kids.  He loves to hand out candy and see the kids all dressed up.

My husband always tells me to forget about making him a card; but how can I not make him a card when that is what I do to show love for my friends and family.  I think he enjoys them; even if he tells me not to.  I didn't use the thin cuts on this card; but it is part of the set.  It is a nice set for creating cards for men.
