Wrapping it up!

Hello everyone! 
First of all, let me apologize for not getting to each and every blog and commenting on your lovely art! I did check it out and all of you have and continue to blow me away with your creativity! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this diverse group and seeing so many different takes on a theme! It truly is inspiring and mind blowing to see how we all work so differently but have a love of this thing called 
paper crafting! 
Life has been a bit rough as of late, this year has been a challenge to say the least. 
I know we all have our challenges and rough seas to navigate, but I also realize we are totally capable!   It might not feel like it at times, but it is doable.  I'm saying all this because I know there are others out there who are facing challenges as well.  Don't give up! Keep going. Keep pushing. 
Take hold and understand that this to shall pass.  Sometimes we just need that reminder and mine came at the perfect time from a place I least expected it...so if I can pass on that one thing...that is a gift!  I keep coming back to this one sentiment....The mountain you are carrying wasn't meant for you to carry, it was meant for you to climb.  Climb it, learn and move on to the next...that's the way I am looking at it from now on, or at least trying to. Life is not perfect, but if it was it would really be quite boring.  We go through these things to give us knowledge, to make us stronger and to maybe help someone else that we don't even realize we are helping.  Anyway, enough about that...let's talk art! 

Numbers was the theme this month and I decided to do a little birthday card for one of my friends who is turning 45.  Each and every year we get is a gift, don't you think.  

Thanks to everyone who played along this month! 
I love each and every creation! 
Remember, each thing you make, each piece of art you create, you are leaving a little 
piece of yourself there.  Sharing that with the world and that's a pretty fabulous thing to do! 
It not only inspires others, but it shows someone how much you care by putting the time and effort into something handmade! That's the best gift ever! 

Have a nice day, go out and look up, see the wonderment in the world! It's there, we just have to open our eyes to it and be receptive to it.  We all face hard times, tragedies and mountains to climb, but if we stop even in the midst and look up or look around, there is so much wonderment in our world! 
Until the next time....signing off for now, Yvonne. 


  1. Hi, your creation is so simply pretty. Mountains to climb, oh yes, we all have them. Loving the little sentiment, I am going to pinch it and use myself. here's to happier times, Corinna

  2. A dear friend is coping with three pieces of devastating news this week, it makes me realise that my mountains are just hills. Sometimes a card or a kind word is all we need and you are so right Yvonne, there is so much wonderment in our world!

    I love your beautiful card, the colours are wonderful. It is sure to please your friend! Anne xx
