A space to display my handmade cards and crafts!

And finally, this card is for my mom, and I threw it together in about 5 minutes today.  Here is the story.  In January, she had a hip replacement, but there were complications and she had to be in a wheelchair for 10 weeks, which she HATED.  She is still young - 64 - and independent, so that alone was awful.  Once she could start putting some weight on her leg, she pushed the envelope one night, and fell and broke her wrist.  Yep, you guessed it, another surgery a couple of weeks ago!  Then today, I took her to get the sutures out of her wrist and the Dr. noticed one of the incisions where he placed the pin is getting infected.  THEN he looked at her foot and saw it was too swollen for comfort, so he sent us over to get her a Doppler of her leg.  BLOOD CLOT!!!  We are both about at the end of our collective ropes, so I felt really badly for her and wanted to make her this card.

Not sure if you can tell, but the glass is actually cut out of acetate.  The "sugar" on the rim is not my original idea, as I saw someone else do this on the Cricut MB last week or so.  Also, this pattern is MUCH less obnoxious in person that in the picture.  I liked the fact that the reverse side was lemons, so I had to use it.  All cuts are from Just Because cards, and the paper is from a K&Co pack.  Thanks for visiting!


  1. Hey Kim! Great job on the cards. I keep seeing all these cute cards made with just because and I don't have that one (yet).

  2. Your poor mom! Sorry she had to go thru that. But glad the doctor caught it. And what a great daughter you are to quickly whip up that sweet card!:)


I appreciate your comments, so THANK YOU!!
