Thank God for my Hobby

The past couple weeks have been rough.  I learned a few things about myself and the first is that I don't do surgery well and never want to have another again(but I know that's not gonna work).  The only thing that has pulled me through is Mr. piggy, my family and my hobby.   Having the progressive challenges to work on have kept me busy and thank goodness. So this is my progressive challenge card for the challenge at From the Heart.  If you don't know Faith's artwork you are missing out.  Check her out here:

So with out further ado my card-

Can you say 2cute?

I have been sick all week long and tonight is the first time I have really felt up to doing anything but sleep.  So I decided to join the challenge to use the exclusive image I got for joining the 2 Cute stamp club.  For 5.00 I got 7 digis!  Who can beat that?  And Heidi is such a talented artist.  So with out further ado here is one of the exclusive digis I got this month.

She has been entered in the challenge for just exclusive images and this cutie was entered in the fall challenge on the 2 Cute  Facebook page.

Thanks for stopping by!

100 days of Halloween challenge at Simply B Stamps

Betty has given us some tough challenges, but this has been the hardest.  I had to turn one of her absorbable images in to a scary clown.  I like the way it turned out, but I did pretty much copy the face of the image she showed us.  Thanks for looking and be sure to check out the rest of the fab images others are doing in her face book group.  Also check out her fabee blog.  It is a great resource of lots of fun stuff.
