Hey, Mo!

Well, the crafting frenzy continues here!  Yesterday I made three cards (two of which I will share with you now) and today so far I have colored six of the twelve images I need for the bookmarks I am making.  Of course, I can barely see straight at this point and I need to get this post written plus a card made before I can call it a night!

Today I have two cards created with Mo's Digital Pencil images to share.  Mo's Dream Team is holding a DT call and I thought it was time to dip my toes into a bigger creative pond and give it a shot!  I love Mo's adorable images so why not!?  The first card is a Mother's Day card using her Rustic Windowbox image.  This one is a beauty!  Love the country charm!  I colored it with Copics and added glaze to the window panes.  The image is cut with the Labels Three Nestabilities from Spellbinders and popped up with foam squares.  Sketch is courtesy of Cupcake Crafts current challenge (#241).  I thought the My Mind's Eye - Bramble Rose paper was simply perfect for the image!  The border punch is Martha Stewart and my only embellishment is a couple of flat back pearls.  This is the one I'd like to submit for consideration for the team. 


  
My next card was made for Kayne's day care provider.  Today was Teacher's Appreciation Day and though it's not technically "school" she is absolutely a teacher!  So I baked some chocolate chip cookies and whipped up a cute card using Mo's For Teacher image.



He is colored with Copics.  Paper is from DCWV - Nana's Kids.  The sketch is #38 from Seems A Little Sketchy.  I used a Martha Stewart border punch and two Stampin' Up punches for the details.  I kept it pretty CAS, for me anyway, so you could see the cute alphabet paper better.

And finally, today's Blog Every Day in May challenge theme: The thing(s) you're most afraid of.  

That would undoubtedly be one of two things: someone I love getting seriously sick or dying!  Now that I'm a mom, and now that I'm getting older, I seem to worry about this more than I once did.  How could I continue to breathe if something happened to my small man?!  How could anything fill the hole in my heart that would cause?!  There are other things that I'm afraid of: spiders, small rodents, things that slither, airplane take offs and landings, heights (except on roller coasters!  Bizarre, right?) but nothing else comes close to the chest-tightening, breath-shortening anxiety I feel because now I can't imagine my life without him.  Or his without me.  I too am only human and have no way of knowing what the future holds for me.  I do know it's an inevitability for all of us that one day we won't be here any longer, but it's one I'd prefer not to think about it.  And I'm hoping when it does happen, it's later than sooner!  Hopefully I didn't depress anyone too much with this post!  lol  But now that it's out there, what about you: What things are YOU most afraid of?
