Two Cards To Share!

This Magnolia card is for a couple of Magnolia challenges going on. Since I retired I am finding it is better to have fun than to clean house. I have decided a spotless house is not so important to me anymore, enjoying life is more important. My husbands health is not always good, so we just take it a day at a time and do what we enjoy doing. For him that is watching TV, for me it is coloring and making cards, reading and spending time with the Grandkids. My home isn't dirty or cluttered (except for my craft room) but it is not perfect either. I don't like to cook anymore, did it for a lifetime it seems so when I do cook, I cook enough for several meals, that way I don't have to cook a big meal everyday. I am trying to explain to some of my friends why I have time to make so many cards, that and the fact that I need them for 5 children, 17 Grandkids and their spouces and 17 Great Grandkids. Hope you like these two I made today.

  4. Two beautiful cards, Linda...the coloring on the first one is fabulous and I love all the flowers and the beautiful lace!!! The easel card is gorgeous, too..such a stunning image and awesome papers!!!!

  5. Linda, both cards are very pretty. I always like your coloring and how you used the all the flowers. Is it not difficult to send those cards via mail - because the flowers are so thick ?? Anyway- it looks beautiful !!

  7. Love both of them Linda and I really love the colors of the first card! I totally agree with you about the house - and I cook the way you do but I don't seem to get near as much done as you do - oh woe is me. Pretty cards!! Love the paper on the first card. And with all your family, it's a good thing you make a lot of cards LOL!
