Heart Buttons

Today is a happy day and a sad day.

1. Happy because there are only 12 more days until E Diddy Dollars comes home from his mission! The countdown continues.

2. Happy because my daughter and granddaughter are coming over in a little while. Love 'em both so much!

3. Happy because Dawson has a game today. I'm feeling a win coming on. We need one after last night (see #6 below).

4. Happy because I get to teach a scrapbook class to some of the ladies at church tonight. Gonna be fun!

5. Happy because I had fun making this cool 'heart button' card yesterday and get to share it with you today. I turned the sketch from Card Patterns (#46) this week on it's side and this is what I came up with. Close To My Heart products used: White Daisy Cardstock (1385), Basic Textured Cardstock Combo Pack (X5747), Silhouette Level 2 Paper Pack (X7090B), Spring Craft Buttons (Z1281), Amethyst Accesorries (retired), White Daisy Organdy Ribbon (Z100), Colonial White Waxy Flax (Z1081), Corner Rounder (Z578), Sanding Kit (Z1294). Click here to order from my website 24/7...especially when your heart needs a button!

6. Sad because Tannon and the Lone Peak Knights lost a bitter rivalry game last night in overtime. They are now 10-2. Blech. I hate losing! Apparently so does Tannon (see photo below that was in the newspaper after our first loss). Losing stinketh!

7. Sad because I am having one of those "I don't want to do ANYTHING today" days. If you have any motivation and energy today, please send it my way!

Come to think of it, there is way more happy than sad today, so I think I'll focus on that. Blogs can be cathartic! Another reason to be happy.

Love your card Karen as always :)

I think you have way more to happy than sad about too - just focus on all the good. I think it is the time of year for the blahs. But positive feel good wishes are coming your way!

Have a great day!

Hi Karen,
So glad that your granddaughter can come over today and give you a hug. She will make you feel better. I had the "blues" yesterday so I forced myself to clean out a closet. Not fun at the time, but it sure made me feel better today seeing how clean and organized it is.
Thank you for sharing the beautiful card.
sending you hugs,

I hope that someone is ready with a camera the moment you set you eyes on Easton! Now that is a moment to scrapbook!

Hey GF!
I've got an "L" for you! Ok, so I'm doing a bit of closet cleaning....enjoying purging some old files of papers, etc...well, anyway, I came across a CTMH training video for the ABC Scrapbooking Program. Does this ring a bell??? It features you and Stacy Julian teaching Jeanette's new program! So, for your missing "L", I suggest "Lovely" for the job you and Stacy did so many years ago on that video! I smiled the whole time I watched it today! Thanks for the happy moments! Speaking of's been a little sparce around here too. However, I have to say that digging into some organizing projects has breathed new life into me! Oh...and sorry this is such a long post!

First off, cute card! Secondly, just a reminder, that you are one blessed woman! You constantly motivate and encourage others, so I hope you can feel encouraged today!

What a great take on the sketch, love it!

I think the hardest part about being a parent is when life happens to your kids and you can't fix it, make it better or take it away. You just have to let them work through it and know they will be stronger afterwords.
