Card for a friend . . .

If you have read the “about” section of my blog or have guessed from my blog name, I am a nurse.  All of my friends at work know I have a passion for crafting and card making.  I was asked by one of my co-workers to make a card for one of our team members.  The card requester wanted to card to reflect a sentiment that would be appropriate coming from our “Eye Team”.  Here is what I came up with.

I hope the recipient enjoys the card and it brings a bit of happiness to her day.  She is going through a rough time and we miss her.  I work with an amazing group of women and men who all represent everything you could ask for in a health care provider!


I am a Design Team Member!!


I am so excited to share with everyone my good news!  Earlier this week I found out that I was selected to be a design team member for Janette Lane and her Pocket Letters Network! Imagine my surprise when I saw this in my email:

Congratulations!!  Welcome to the Pocket Letters (R) Brand Team.  You made it! You’re part of the official Pocket Letters® brand design team! Hooray! 

I simply couldn’t believe it!  I think I had a huge smile on my face for the rest of the day, actually, the smile is still there!  I am so excited to get started making projects with this amazing team.  I still can’t believe I have been selected.  I am honestly nervous about how my skills will stack up to the rest of these amazing women.  As is my nature, when I think I need to learn more, I take a class.  Several months ago, I took the Pocket Letter Class created by Janette Lane.  I am going to review the class again, with renewed interest this time 🙂 I am excited to come away with new inspirations and ideas.

Here is the official design team photo:

Happy Spring !!

I love spring time and all of the soft pastel colors that come with this time of year.  I’ve been working on a few Pocket Letter swaps with some ladies I met on the Janette Lane Pocket Letter Pals website. It’s a great place to meet crafters who share your love of crafting.  Don’t know what a pocket letter is?  Take a look at this video and prepare to be hooked!

Don’t you just love the cute bunnies?  I got them from a recent Target Dollar Spot haul.  The background papers are from a Heidi Swap 12×12 collection.  I love to wrap up the pocket letter and send it out like a happy present!!
