Oh Happy Life Grateful Card

This is a partial page from the Amy Tangerine Oh Happy Life 6 x 6 pad.

I am struggling with news overload – the Las Vegas tragedy has almost totally replaced the Puerto Rico crisis (in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria).

Hurricanes (and other weather related disasters), I can grasp “how this happened”. My understanding HOW does not make the outcome any less devastating.

Gun tragedies (“home grown terrorist”), like Las Vegas – I cannot wrap my head around these.

I don’t own a gun. I don’t want to own a gun. I don’t want the Second Amendment (the right to bear arms) repealed, but I don’t think anyone needs to have a semi automatic (or automatic) weapon.

Enough of my dark mood.

SO…let’s be grateful for what we have. Let’s go out and try to make someone’s day better, in whatever way (small or large) we can.

80? Owl Birthday Card

My Mom turns 80 this month. Unbelievable!

When I first flipped through the Amy Tangerine Oh Happy Life paper pad, I saw this owl page and knew exactly what I was creating. The inside sentiment is “WHO is counting?”

(Note: The only negative about the Amy Tangerine 6 x 6 paper pads – there is only one sheet of each design! So, I cannot make another owl card!)

AND…here we are at September 11th.

I wish you peace.

I’m Here Card

I’m trying to fill up the sympathy section of my card basket, but I’m not sure if this really qualifies as a sympathy card (too frivolous?) or if it is a thinking of you card. I am going to put it in the thinking of you section for now.

Let me know – sympathy or thinking of you.

Trio of Giraffe Cards

I splurged on a new (to me!) American Craft Amy Tangerine pad of paper. (Alas, I should be practicing fiscal austerity measures, I bought a smartphone this summer!)

Offspring3 has a friend who adores giraffes…so these are for Offspring3 to send.
