All Occasion Card Using Bugaboo Flower Tree


Hello friends.   I hope everyone is doing well and finding time to craft.  I think crafting is the key to feeling better; especially when the weather is bad, if you are feeling down or just need an outlet for stress.  I feel lost if I don't create something at least every few days.  I would love to have time to create daily.  I think I would be healthier if I did create something every day. What other things do you do to help with your stress level?  I would love to know.

I had to buy a new computer; so I have been very stressed trying to figure out what to save from the old computer before shutting it down.  You never really know what you need until your new one is up and running; and then it is too late.  

I have not had time to create any cards for the past week or more; except a few Thank you cards for my wonderful CTMH customers.  I have been on the phone almost daily with Geek Squad trying to get my computer up and running.  I have a few more programs to take care of and then all should be good again.  At least the old computer didn't crash before getting a new one.  

It is time for another fabulous challenge at Lil Patch Of Crafty Friends Challenge 29.  We would love for you to join us with Anything Goes.  We have two fabulous sponsors with great prizes for this challenge; which are Bugaboo Stamps & Sami Stamps.  Be sure to drop by their stores to see what they have to offer.  I love this sweet Bugaboo image.  I also love black and white cards; so I was very pleased with how this one turned out.  Click on title to take you directly to the link to purchase.
