Just Because Card - Think Spring Wagon

First let me welcome the new followers who joined me from the blog hop over the weekend. I am so honored you chose to follow my blog! I hope you will be inspired by my creations.

I made this card at the crop I had the other weekend. I wanted to make Sharon a card, one of my bloggy friends because she had surgery recently and can't even craft right now until she heals. So I thought a nice springy happy card was in order for her. Have I mentioned that I am in love with Kate's ABC's??? I mean this cartridge just has the prettiest and cutest cuts every. I have been having a lot of fun playing with it. I love how my wagon turned out. I really blinged it up. I felt that a pink wagon really needed to be even more girly. And then the plants. I cannot believe how well that green plant cut out using this card stock from Michael's. WOW. That was intricate and it cut it perfectly. I added some gel pen to the pant and the butterfly. For the sky I took a very light blue paper and sponged it with Staz-on Teal Blue to give the sky a more vibrant color. The cloud is from Create a Critter, the sentiment on it is from Scrappy Moms. The grass and the fence are from Martha Stewart Punches.

I was so excited to send her this pretty card that I didn't event take a picture of it. YIKES. There is only one card missing from my blog, my Dad's birthday card from this year. Sharon was nice enough to take this picture and send it to me though so I could share her card on my blog.

Hope you enjoy!

On a Side note, thank you for those who have sent me well wishes. I had some tests done the other week which I was really scared about, but for my sake they came out exactly how I hoped. I majorly failed one and passed the other so that means I can be considered for surgery. Right now I have a tentative surgery date for May and I meet the surgeon on May 6th so unless something doesn't jive hopefully I am getting surgery done here soon to cure my Acid Reflux that is really making me miserable and draining my energy. I am hoping that I am able to make more videos after I feel better on a regular basis!
