No Brainer Day

I just figured out why I had such a problem with this super simple waterfall card yesterday! I spent a lot of time emailing Leo from SVG Cuts in regards to how to put this together, but I could not get it to work right.  I did it backwards, upside down and ripped my pieces to shreds before I finally gave up and went to bed! I got up this morning and they went together without a problem!! Then it dawned on me, yesterday in ArtHaven Creations Yahoo Group, Diann informed us on the calendar, it was No Brainer Day- Well Duh (not that I don't have a whole lot of those) but that was my entire problem!!  I made two of these cards as I needed one for my Nephew's Birthday and another for a little boy battling Leukemia, but I failed to take a picture of the second one prior to sealing the envelope :(  Sadly, this is the one that didn't turn out as nicely either, as I forgot to emboss the dino's face with the Cuttlebug LOL *Hugs*

Oh Boy, A New Addiction, Just What I Needed!!!

A friend showed these on my Yahoo Group and I just had to try them!  They are so much fun and easy to do as well!  I do, however, recommend being very careful when cutting off the excess thread on the back, as I ruined THREE by clipping the thread too high and they fell apart, LOL *Hugs*

With Sympathy

Wow, What a rough year it has been already in my Yahoo Group "ArtHavenCreations_Friendship".  So many have lost loved ones, seen family members heading to surgery, been ill themselves or had Mother Nature hit them super hard. I hope this is not a sign of how our year is going to be!  So, with that in mind, I am posting images of two Sympathy Cards I made today.  One is for my best friend's husband and the other is for another great friend's mother. I hope that these last few weeks are the worst of it for my friend's and life will soon be sunshine and laughter for all!  *Hugs* and Take Care!
