Today...

Today, I got a lot done at work. It was a good day. I really got a lot caught up. I still have some work to do to be completely caught up, but I'm getting there. It was a lot to get done in one day, so I'm pleased. My boss is pleased too, which makes it that much better.

Today, I worried about Kevin a lot. Being apart and him being on his own really takes its toll on us; more so him I believe. I have the kids, scrapbooking, card making, and work to keep me occupied. He doesn't have any of that. He does his best, but I know it is hard on him. It's hard on me being so far apart and for so long; it is harder for him. I worry when he doesn't sleep well, when he gets down. I just wish we were together again. Then everything would fall into place and we could have some normalcy. I keep him in my prayers .. to help the time pass, to keep him healthy and happy. I wish there were more I could do.

Today, I can't get my Cricut to cut all the way through my Bazzill and I don't know how to fix it. Maybe I need to make the image larger? I've tried adjusting all the settings. It just won't completely cut through the paper. It has made me very frustrated and annoyed. I will have to work on it some more later, but I need to take a break from it.

Today, I finished a card and I'm starting work on another. I used all scraps, which I have been trying to do to use some of them up. It doesn't even seem like I have made a dent in my scraps at all! I went through them all last night and pulled all the cardstock and made a bunch of cards to decorate.

And you know what?? It STILL doesn't look like a made a dent in my stash of scraps LOL!! Ughhh!! I will keep working on it. The card I made today is Christmas themed.

I used bazzill for the snowflakes and card. The pattered paper.. Oh I can't remember what paper that was way back when. I know I loved it though! The "merry & bright" is a Stampin' Up stamp. And the snowflakes and the moon have Ice Stickles on them. The Snowflakes are cut with the Cricut, which I then had to hand cut around them to complete the cut through the paper Grrrr! The image is a free image from here. I'm going to put this card in the following challenges:
