Life's Work


Life's work: Helping shape my boys into being the best they can be and loving them beyond belief. Supporting my husband in his decisions and being by his side. Making sound choices that have my parents still be proud of their baby girl. Being the best mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend, co-worker that I can be. In a nutshell, that is my life's work.


It's time for another Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge, you can find the details of the challenge, see fabulous design team samples, and learn about the rules and prize over on the Skipping Stones Design Blog. We are featuring the Grunge sets this month and I used the tried and true and absolutely spectacular Grunge 1, plus I added a touch of Breathtaking Butterflies, Garden Kiss, and Sentiment Frames as well!

Please join us with your take on this challenge!

You have a way with birds and butterflies Karen. They're such strong focal points in your card, but still look so delicate and subtle...love the effect. Beautiful card.
