So this is my final JUGS challenge as I'm saying good-bye to some special ladies on the JUGS team. I've been creating with them for over a year now! I've had to make a tough decision to step down and focus on things that I have going on in my life. As most of you that read my blog know, we lost our 4 1/2 year old son in June of 2009 to cancer. Since then I have went back to work part-time, had another baby, in the process of building a house (my husband is!), another baby on the way, and planning a rodeo in memory of our son, Ethan, to raise money for neuroblastoma research. I have a ton on my plate and I needed to lighten my load a little! I also have a "huge" goal of getting caught up on my scrapbooking before the new baby gets here in August so I definitely won't be bored (just in case you were worried!).
Pam hosted the challenge this week and GINA K was more than generous to sponsor us this week. I used one of Theresa Momber's sets called Farm Life. I love her designs and this one is no exception. Anymore I try to not make a card to just be making a card, so this one is for a friend of ours that just passed his professional engineering license. I took this myself and know how hard and how much time goes into studying for this. This set works great for masculine cards and I always struggle with making them. All you have to do is make a card, but you need to make a lined envelope to go with it. I usually don't do this, but it is really easy and makes the envelope look so much more "professional".
Hope all of you will still keep in touch via my blog. I'm definitely not stepping away from stamping.....hopefully I'm going to be doing more scrapbooking and stamping. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
