Karen - You snuck some samples in! I think you should post them here so I don't miss them and can leave love on them!! I know I'm behind right now BUT your cards are so pretty and well done I think everyone should see them...not everyone looks at the front page...me included once the thread is active and posting. Just sayin'!!

Hey has anyone seen MOJO? or his brother? or his distant cousin? I really need to make cards but the ideals from my head to the paper are not connecting!!

Oh Katie glad to see you again. Was wondering where you had been! Well I was struggling with a card last night but got it to come together today!! I was going to keep crafting but my husband was able to stream Super Bowl so going to watch that for a little bit. Hopefully creative will still be there!!

I think I'm ACU. Hopefully, my comments make sense. I am feeling a little disconnected from my brain this morning. It is certainly Monday isn't it?

Kathy, hope your mojo is back and going strong. You make such nice cards. Neat that you are able to make so many for others to use too.

Also, I am so jealous of your DH's help on a card. My DH only finds me more and more to do.... a baby shower card as quick as I could manage it, a set of notecards for his grandmother for Christmas and a very complicated (everything had to be pre-designed and able to be applied with only photo splits so it could remain portable at a moment's notice) card kit for his mother. She had been spending a lot of time in a hospital as a visitor and was (I guess thankfully) quite bored most of the time. Even better, we think that is finally over for a while now.

Working on sprinkling some love - I have a couple cards to add but I had to make an unexpected trip the next city over (2.5 hours) on Friday to meet my mom at the hospital - they admitted her to her small town hospital on Thursday and then transferred here the next day. She is retaining fluid and they have determined it is heart failure but not exactly what is causing the heart to fail. So it's a long weekend here in Canada so her tests results aren't all in and other tests have to wait until Tuesday. So I may be here awhile. Dh is holding down the fort at home with the kids and dogs - I said no sense bringing the kids here because they'd go stir crazy in the hospital all day - may as well wait until I know more what is going on .

Thanks for asking Kathy! She is starting to feel better - her fluid retention is going down and her shortness of breath is improving - they were able to take her off of oxygen late yesterday afternoon and she has done well. They have determined she has an aortic valve malfunction (classified as moderate) so if that is the only problem then once they get the fluid down they can treat that with medication. They said it is only surgical if severe. However they want to do an angiogram to check the arteries in her heart to make sure nothing is going on there. Because of the long weekend last weekend they are way behind so we haven't had our turn yet. They said likely not today either which means Monday at the earliest now - which in a way is good because they do the urgent ones first so nice to know it is not critical she have it. So once they do that if there are any arterial problems that require surgery then they will fix the valve if they have to go in. Either way they said no surgeon will touch her with this much fluid so she needs to eliminate more before she could have any potential surgery anyway. So since no testing will be happening on the weekend and she is feeling better and more alert I will head home later this afternoon for the weekend and snuggle my babies! Then come back Sunday afternoon.

Sharing a couple of cards, since they didn't really fit any of the categories. I guess the first one could work for the color one though.

Dropping off these two I did before mom got sick. Won't be getting any more done this month.

This one is for technique.

What is paper piecing? I looked on youtube and everything that popped up is about quilting and sewing. Is it like that but with paper instead of material? Do I sew my papers? I am confused.

There is actually 2 ways of doing it.
1.
Is like what you do if you have a Cricut and you cut out each of the pieces to create an object. But you don't have to have a cutting machine. You can take a pattern and cut each piece out of the paper you want then "piece" them together.
*look at Vivan and Katie Jo samples.

2.
You can take a digital stamp and print it off on each piece of paper you need. Then you print the main image out and cut it out. Take all your pieces and put it together.
*so in my next post I have a digital pig stamp. I printed the outline of the stamp on paper and stuck the grey cardstock on top of the bowtie. Then I reprinted it. So the bowtie was printed on the gray. I cut it out and stuck it on the pink pig I printed. **Look at CPOwife example on first page of challenge**

Been so busy making cards that I didn't realize I made a few for the challenge.

Here are a couple I made for technique. Lots of cricut and paper piecing on these cards. I ended up making 20 variations.

Last week was all about getting my inventory up. lol
