Hello Sunshine!!

Well today we finally had SUNSHINE!!! 
After a year without any it was wonderful.
OK it was only 8 days, but it sure felt like a year to this desert rat!!

And my mom stopped smoking today!! yahoo!!
Please pray that she can stick to it this time as it will help her live with her COPD much more comfortably.  

OK on to the cards..............

Limelight: Sketch and chipboard

paper and chipboard chair and boarder are CC DeLovely, sentiment: SRM stickers, nesties, SU & MS punches, misc: pearls, edge distressing, & sewing.

Well whoever made this weeks sketch must have gotten a batch of Pam's on 365 Cards "special coffee" this was a tough one!! 

paper, birdhouse pop, & button: BG kioshi, sentiment: SRM stickers, punches: SU & nesties, misc: ribbon, SU card stock.
and look at that........not one pearl or photo corner!! *giggle* 

Crop Stop: Square card with a die cut shape
Sentimental Sundays: Winter + a sentiment

I still had my Christmas papers out and new ranger acrylic dabbers that I used for the last Jingle Belles challenge. So I used a Sizzix snowflake die and then painted them with pearl paint, and boy do they shine! 
paper: SU card stock, MS Christmas paper, punches: MS & nesties, cord is May Arts, misc: pearls and bling, sentiment is this weeks freebie on Sentimental Sundays by Raindrop Echo Designs

Sorry for the poor photos, had to take them after dark.

CONGRATS to your Mom for taking the first step. I have had many people I care about die from COPD and it is not something you want to watch.

Next your cards are amazing I especially love the first one.
