Happy News!

It feels so good to be back in my craft room.  The computer is back and I didn't loose anything.  That was a HUGE relief!!  However, our youngest son and his daughter are living with us full time.  He works the second shift so it's around in the afternoon and evening.  Our granddaughter is 4 years old.  She is a wonderful girl - with tons of energy.  So I will not be able to squeeze time alone to craft.  But, having already raised two boys I understand how quickly time flies.  She will only be young once and I am gladly changing my craft time for time at the park, reading books, and playing Barbies.  I will keep missing you all but I am hoping to get into a groove and get some time to craft.  Until then huge crafting hugs!!

Sad News!!

My laptop died the other day. =(  They think the back light has gone out?!?!  So it has been sent off to get fixed.  I was told that it will probably be about a month.  But, he said, "if you get it sooner be happy".  So I will be MIA for a while.  The worrisome news is that I rarely back up.  So I might loose everything.  =( !!!!  So keep your fingers crossed for me and take a few minutes and back your computer up.  My hubby asks me all the time if I back up - my response, "Oh yeah, I need to do that".  Well, now I am nervous!!  I will be back as soon as I can.  But, I might start back on some quilling now that all my digital stamps are in the mail somewhere.
Happy crafting to you all!!  Hope to see you again soon!

My first Quilling card

Oh My Goodness!!!  My grandmother has been quilling for years.  Have you heard of it or seen it?  Basically it is paper rolling.  She is now 94 and just can't see well enough to do it.  So this weekend my Mom and Dad brought me her stash of quilling papers, tools, and books. I have been receiving cards from her for so many years and thought it looked like a ton of fun so I would give it a try.  I have spent all day - ALL DAY on this card.  Wowzers!!!!  The time that goes into this craft is unreal!!!  I realize this was my first time and I am slow but - well again wow!  I am going to send her this card.  I know she will enjoy receiving it because last month when I was at their apartment she still has the Christmas card I sent them sitting out.  Awe, gotta love grandma's!!  This beautiful scripture verse is from Doodle Pantry, the set is called Renewed Faith.  I will tell you I'm not sure when you will see another quilling card from me. =)
I would like to submit this card into these challenges:
That Craft Place - Anything Goes
A Gem of a Challenge - Something Blue
Outlawz - Add Some Flowers
