I am a finalist!!!

I am a finalist!

That is right, I am one of 25 finalists chosen in a Createforless contest,  We had to do a scrap book layout, and my entry made top 25.  

I did a layout of my sons wedding, and I had so much fun doing it, especially creating the flowers and coming up with the way I was going to lay it out.
Now I need friends and family to go to the link below and click like on my layout...if you like it that is, of course.

Here is the link on Facebook for my pic for you to vote:)  
Please let me know if you have trouble with the link:)

Thanks and happy crafting...Cathy

Lovin Kate's ABC's

Happy Memorial day!!!

Good evening my friends of the craft community.  I hope you all are having a great Memorial weekend, and everyone is safe.  A huge thanks to the men presently and of the past who have served to protect our freedoms.  We will never forget you.

During this holiday weekend I stayed close to home, my husband has been in a lot of pain lately from his M.S. and so our children came home and we had a cookout and enjoyed each others company.  It has been rainy so we did not want to go out anyways.  

So in between company, housework, babysitting, going to the cemetary, and doing loads and loads of laundry for my 2 year old grand daughter who has been pukin all day and night...I managed to make a couple cards.  Been having withdrawals..lol.  have not been able to craft lately like I like.:(

I pulled out my new Kate's ABC's cartridge and pulled a couple together.  The girls were cut at 4 and 3/4 inches and put on a 6x6 card.



I did not have many thinking of you cards and I have a friend who is coming this week for some.
Hope you like them, I had fun making them:)

I also want to let you know while I am here about Close to my Hearts' campaign to help out those from Oklahoma's Tornada...The tornado in Oklahoma has had a devastating effect and Close To My Heart wants to help.
