For a sweet friend

This is for a sweet friend of mine who lost her mom this week. We are too far apart for me to hug and help support her there, but I can from a far pray for her and the family and give cyber hugs.....

One thing I would like to try and get myself back into doing this year would be some of the challenges. Now there is a LOT more challenges out there then I have time for, but if I can do at least 3 challenges a week I am going to be excited. As well my friend Leslie is trying to pull older sets out once a month and make a card a week with that set. Kinda like refreshing your older sets. So I am on another mission to do just this as well. :0) Leslie I am going to TRY....
So with that being said, I pulled out my SU set Memory of the Heart. It is one of my favorite sets that is from LONG ago. I combined this with yes a *challenge* over on Mercy's blog her sketch challenge. I didn't say my challenges would be the same week of the challenge, just a challenge. LOL Hey I am trying and that is what is important... right? Luckily this one is in the same week. I hope you have a wonderful day.

Stacy, this is gorgeous! I love it!! Good for you trying to do more challenges. I want to do the same, and right now I'm 2 for 2, but how long with it last??? I guess if we don't have a goal, we don't even try, right? Hugs,

I'm trying to do challenges each week too, so far I've only done one!!!! Fingers crossed I'll be able to hit my stamp room tonight, except the boys want to watch a movie! What's a mom to do?!
