Crafting under protest!

First I would like to say thank you so much to Jan and Lexi who have graciously allowed me to take a break from deadlines right now. I also want to say a special thanks to my wonderful niece and my good scrapping buddy who have got me to scrap even when I didn't want to. You all mean so much to me. With a lot of stress with personal matters right now, my heart is just not into crafting or anything else but these people just would not let me stop. I hope to be back to my old self real soon and to the point where I will feel comfortable meeting deadlines and obligations but for now I am just trying to keep some sanity in my life. I started with a sketch challenge that Tauna and Bev did along with me. I chose to make my daughter a card as her birthday is next Monday. Today is her anniversary and I didn't even get a card made for them :-( After getting her card finished, I then proceeded to make a card for a brother that I have grown close to these past few years and really wish he was here with me to face issues. I know he is in his heart and that is such a blessing to me.

Anyway, here are the two cards that I have scrapped under protest of an unwilling heart! lol I thank each and everyone for stopping by. Many hugs to all of you and I pray for very special blessing from the awesome Lord who is the rock I stand firmly on.

Happy Birthday Dear Daughter!
