Thank you my friends

I've been neglectful of my blog lately and also pretty much everything. Thank you to the friends who reached out to check on me. I have been having a hard time getting my breath in the last few weeks. I don't use my oxygen during the day unless I go out but I have been using it in the house to help get over this. We have had some hot days and that doesn't help because it makes the air so heavy. Also, we've had that smoke from Canadian wildfires. So much destruction for them that I hate to complain. Anyway, I'm coughing a lot and that wears me out. So, I've had very little energy and by the time I get a meal made, take out Daisy, do laundry and clean up a bit I'm done for the day. I've also been taking a nap and that helps get through the day. I guess I'm starting to feel my age. I feel like this will get better and hearing from friends definitely got me off my keister to do something and let you know what's going on. On top of that, I'm having some issues with both my shoulders and that's kept me off the computer. I've been doing exercises for them and they feel better. 

I love you all and treasure all the friendships I've made in blogland. I'll be back around to say hi and check out all the stunning cards you make.

I hope I never lose my sense of humor when my body goes, so here's another one for you.

Two satellite dishes got married. The ceremony wasn't that great but the reception was amazing.

Be kind to one another.

Off The Edge

This month Groupofsevencardmakers are creating cards with the design going off the edge. I used a Memory Box die called Hot Air Balloon in different colored cardstock.  The clouds and grass were made with sponging on a LDRS stencil. The sentiment is  Stampin' Up .

For my second card I used a unknown wreath die that I had on a magnetic sheet in my Art Bin. It is added to a WRMK embossed card front. I added Stickles to the berries and a sentiment from DeNami Designs on a punched circle.

Be kind to one another.

More black

Here is a card from my birthday stash. This is such a pretty color combination it was easy to get inspired. A few die cuts and a stamped sentiment and I'm a happy camper. I don't know why I haven't posted it before.

In the U.S. we have the right to remain silent. Few have the ability to do that.
(This seemed timely).

Be kind to one another.
