Basket of apples

Okay, I just LOVE this new stamp set from Clear Dollar Stamps...can't wait to play around with it a bit more :)! For those of you who saw my post this morning about the Cuttlebug/Nestabilities Embossing in the center of your card, I got my dh to help me when he got home...I tried at least 6 different ways and I couldn't get it to work. Anyways, of course when he got home he sat down and did it on the first try...grrrr!! The way he did it was totally different from what the Youtube tutorials showed how to do it I am going to sit him down and get him to show me again...that way I can show you :D.
I have to apologize for my lack of blogging of crafty things over the past few weeks, this assessment thing really shook me up a bit...took me off guard and just had to figure out why it was I was feeling that way. I am okay, don't worry...just had to take some time to think about what was said and what we are going to do from here. I am going to be more crafty over the next couple of days, and I promise it will be a lot of different things. So I need to get back to my craft room, and be my creative self to get some good quality "me" time in there!
So this card's sentiment says the following since it is hard to make out here by my picture:

"Baskets of blessings are coming your way, hoping to brighten and cheer up your day!"

So here we go gals/and guys (if I have guys reading this blog, tee hee), I am going to work on a few more projects tonight for you and then post em tomorrow I hope or tomorrow afternoon. Before I forget, I must tell you that my son's Preschool is setting up a Individualized Program plan (I think that is what it is called) over the next couple of weeks and so I am really looking forward what we will be able to get going for him. Also, we are meeting our Early Interventionist on Wednesday morning...hoping that she too can help us out here in our home with any problems that we might have. Plus, perhaps she can be another advocate for our son too...come with us to appointments to bop professionals over the head...not really but would be nice when I feel I am not being heard.

Okay well hope you liked that card...and I shall ttyl :D!

Catherine, this is really nice. I love the embossed square - glad you got it to work! I haven't had a chance to play with it tonight like I'd hoped...but, now I'm too tired, and I think I'll call it a day instead. Anyway, I'll chat with ya tomorrow to see what we have to do differently from what the YouTube video showed. Hope you're enjoying your crafty night. :)
