Loved making this card for my brother. He is super special. We have birthdays on the same day.
I was born on his 4th birthday along with my twin sister…yes, 3 birthdays in one day. Our lives changed in 2014 as my twin passed away from a stroke at 56. My days have never been the same but I press on, move on but always have her in my heart and mind. Life is different, never will be the same.
I had to do this card in steps. Yes, my arthritis kicked on a revenge. My hands could not function. Like typing this right now is not simple. I use to type for a living, now I pray I can do keyboarding just a little. I press on. You have to, it is the only choice you have.
The card is simple but striking.
This high-quality printed paper is excellent scrapbook paper, card making paper, and more. Pack includes various golf-themed images, prints, and patterns. It’s a great choice for masculine cards and projects. I love the plaids.

Had alot of hard days of late. Can not do what I want to do when I want to do it. First it is Arthiritis and second little Money. Today I was to go to my doctor but to be honest I did not go cause I did not have the $35 co-pay, plus I already have a running bill. My life is not what I like, do what I can to be happy, move on and face it.
I love making these tags, simple and fun. The paper is old but I use what I have. Yes, I have to much. My storage space is not there, I am working on a system but a small 2 bedroom house, there is no space…just the way it is. I am thankful we do not have a big house, big house big taxes.
The day begins with lining up what to do? Yikes, so many things to get done before play time. Dishes and laundry. Yes, than figuring out dinner. Does not seem like much but live with arthritis is no fun. You can not do what you want to do when you want to do it. The body just hurts and does not move on call.
Here is a card I worked on…but I have to make Birthday, Sympathy and Get Well Card.
This is a technique I love to do. You use crumb cake card stock, stamp with black memento ink. You color with white water color pencil and than blend with blenders. Blenders are so cool cause you spread the color without water. I than used pink centers. I fussy cut the little extras and put on with dimensionals. The stamp design was from last years Sale a Bration. The stamp set can be any stamp.
Working on this blog or web site is a new learning curve…. time consuming.
I am pressing on…. I am stamping and doing machine embroidery. Yes, my hands are having issues with arthritis and it is my way of life. Check out my Etsy store from time to time. I have so many doctor and hospital bills since 2018 and it is never ending. My Stamping and Embroidery ease the pain on my limitations. Yes, I feel so isolated at times.
I shared the photo above on my old blog/website. Isn’t it true. I have many things to do to get this going again.
Yes, my arthiritic hands love the ease of just flipping over the plate and going for simple stamping I use the wood blocks for decorating….yes, it takes room. I have been stamping for a long time! Change is a good thing but sometimes we hold onto the old. I am back into the card aka paper crafting mode. I have taken the time to enjoy Christmas and do my best to get things back in gear. Summers are short here in Michigan….real short. I think that is why creating cards to brighten someones bleak days on cold and cloudy days make it so much fun. Today I have to make a card for my sister-in-law and visit her at the hospital. Oh…you don’t have one made, yes, I do but it is fun to make something special.
Ok, enjoy the day! Will have more instructions soon as I can get the photos. Have a creating, crafting day… Create Joy, Give Joy!
