Taking some time off...

Dear blogging friends!

Isn't it interesting the way life throws you curve balls?

I've been facing a very slow curve ball for the past several months, which has escalated to a fast ball. This will be my second to the last post for a while, I have one scheduled for next week and that will be it.

So, here are the final card fronts I made for Diana. I absolutely loved this dp which I purchased at my local LSS and am delighted with the way the card turned out.

I only took one picture!! GASP! I can't believe it!!!!! So as sitting here is a struggle I'll just make this short.

Here ya go...

I also made this little note book for her. I'm having so much fun doing the grass and sky. I like the way this one turned out....

A closer look at Tilda...

And the ever present cock-eyed view....

Thank you all so much for your support and encouragement and lovely comments over the years. It may be quite a while before I can blog again, I'm really hoping sooner than later.

Blessings and hugs,



  1. The card is so cute, but that notepad is awesome! Your coloring is beyond fantastic...I love the grass and clouds!!!!! Gorgeous :)

  2. These are adorable, Barb. And I agree with you love the grass and backgrounds. It make your Tildas pop right off the card.
    I will be missing your artwork so much. I hope the best for you and pray that you come back and blog again soon.
