Star card and good news

I  thought I would publish a card I recently made after watching a Ustream tutorial  from Elsa from Just a Few Designs.  She is a talented lady.  I had slowed down posting because as some of you may know i recently lost my mother to a severe case of pneumonia. I am now bouncing back a little.  I find card making and paper crafting very therapeutic. 
Here is my supply list:  patterned paper from K&Co
Stickles glitter glue
Butterflies cut from Cricut Create a Critter cartridge
assorted flowers from my stash
stamp from $1 bin at Joann's
markers and craft glue.
The star card is real easy to make, I just need to find envelopes for them or make my

For my good news....... the on-line craft store, Consumer Crafts, contacted me and wanted to highlight me and a Halloween wreath I made with paper rosettes.  I was flattered and excited. Above is the wreath. If you want to see the post go to  www.craftsunleashed and check it out. 
My other good news for me is I had my first craft fair this weekend and me and my daughter in law did real good for our first one, soooooo we scheduled another one.
Happy crafting and Happy Halloween

sad day:(

I do not have many followers, but for those of you that do, and those that said a prayer for my mom, I thank you.  Thank you.  But she was not strong enough to fight, and the Good Lord called her home yesterday.  I miss her already.

Yeah me:)

  I entered one of my cards in a contest that the Official Cricut Blog held for the World card Making day, and I was one of three winners!!!  I won a Cricut Cuttlebug.  I have been wanting one for a long time.  And my wonderful husband of 31 years bought me an early Christmas/birthday/ mothers day gift.......The new Cricut Expression 2.  But the best news of all is my mom was taken of a ventilator today, and is breathing with the aide of an oxygen mask and oxygen.   She has been in I.C.U.  with a bad case of pneumonia in both lungs.  This was a good day:)
   I am going to be playing with my new toy tonight.                cathy

prayers needed

Hello my bloggy friends, my mom is not doing well, double pneumonia, in ICU with fluid building up and put on ventilator.  My heart is breaking for her, and would love it if you can ask our Lord for help.  I believe in the power of prayer, so please.  Thank you
