    Here are some things I made. First, a card with the pretty papers.
    The background is a paper from the kit. I stamped the sentiment and wrapped the little flowers up in a doily from the kit also.
    The little heart is cut out with a die and paper from the kit. And take a peek at those envelopes! So easy, just cut them out and fold!

    Next, a super simple card. I simply stamped the sentiment onto a kit paper.
    Betsy has done all of the hard work for us with these amazing patterns!!

    One more quick one, this is all stamping and die cutting. I used the scallop stamp for a border on white cardstock, then filled in with stamped flowers and dies cut from the papers.

    Then a button from the kit finishes off the corner.

    This kit is most definitely one of my favorites ever, one I will reaching for time and time again!

    P.S. I want to express my thanks to those of you who reached out to me this past month. I really, really do appreciate your prayers and thoughtfulness. My family is going through some very hard times right now. To be honest, for several weeks I just couldn't look at a piece of paper or a stamp. I couldn't even walk into my scrap room. I've cried, I've gotten angry. I have gone through every single emotion a person can go through. A couple of days ago, I found the courage to walk back in and create again. I do miss it. It was my happy place. I hope to try and plow through my feelings of what is happening and get myself back on track. I'm really sorry I don't feel comfortable enough talking about it at this time, but I will eventually...thank you for hanging in there with me. xo

    Hi Danielle~ I don't know what you're going through but know that I am praying for you and your family. What you wrote, exactly describes what I've been experiencing the last three weeks. My mom passed away very unexpectedly two days after Mother's Day and the pain has been intense. Anger, hurt, sadness... I've experienced it all and still am struggling with new strengths and struggles each day. I found it very hard to get back into my craft room because my mom loved seeing all of my homemade cards. I used to make up kits for her and take a picture of the finished product so she could just look at the picture and create the card herself. It's been a struggle getting back in there but am forced to work on my thank you cards. Sorry to carry on so, I just wanted to let you know that I am earnestly in prayer for you and that God sees all your tears and know all your hurts. I hope you find peace and rest soon. (HUGS) ~ Birgit

    Danielle, your projects are amazing. The flowers encased with the paper doiley looks so cute as an embellishment with the card.

    As soon as I saw this kit, I thought of you & couldn't wait to see what you create with it. I had no idea you have been struggling, as I was too busy to look at the May reveal.
    Oh Danielle, I'm so very sorry to hear that you and your family are going through a difficult time. It truly saddens me to hear. Sending you my prayers & hugs. I hope you soon find peace & happiness.

    I have been thinking about and praying for you all month, since your last post. Of course, we have missed your creations ... they are always so beautiful, but I have missed your gentle, sweet commentary more. So, I pray that you and your family receive the peace given from above. And I pray that, when the time comes, you and your family are eventually able to thrive in your new "normal." God keep you.

    I saw a stamp that said Life is Tough, You are Tougher. I know right now only the first part seems true. I hope it helps you and eases your pain to see all the people who are sending love and prayer to you. Hopefully putting your hands and mind to your beautiful creations also gives peace. Love to you and your family.
