Where did May go? Oh my goodness--my last post was at the end of April! May was such a busy month for me--filled with lots outdoor work, tutoring, and vacation. And then on May 24, my 86-year-old mother-in-law was admitted to the hospital. She was discharged this Thursday and now is in a nursing home receiving some physical therapy, so hopefully she can go home soon. We are lucky that she does live in town, but we know we are facing some new challenges in the future.
My limited crafting time has been spent finishing a promised project and organizing some purchases.One morning I did manage to stamp some images that I cut out and colored while sitting at the hospital.
Luckily, I am the host of this month's Papertrey Peeps challenge, which forced me to create a new card, and spurred me to post. Because my challenge is to create a masculine card, I made a card for the most important man in my life--my husband.
I hope to catch up on recent Peeps challenges and blog visits very soon. You peeps are the best in so many ways!
I hope you can join our Peeps challenge this month and link your project on the Papertrey Peeps blog.
