March release from MFT...

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind.  Grandma is back in the hospital and we have been traveling back and forth to see her.  She is such a fighter!!  She is improving by the day but has had some setbacks that will leave her in the hospital for at least 4-5 more days.

I am delighted to be sharing some new cards with you today.  In fact, you will see quite a few over the next few days.  I finally had a chance to take photos of my cards and get them uploaded.  While I created these cards a while back the travel to and from the hospital (which is 1.5 hours away) has consumed much of my free time.  And while I am able to check things out through my iPhone I was not willing to sit and peck an entire post using the phone lol.  I definitely would not win any speed text awards and I would have to be SOOOO careful with autotext options because sometimes it picks the worst words!!!

Thank you for your continued patience with my posts.  We have some big changes coming up in our household.  Grandma will likely move in with my mum in the next few months as she is requiring more around the clock care.  And unfortunately I can only provide so much each day with the family, homeschooling and my jobs.  It saddens me as we will miss her terribly but we are happy knowing that mum will be able to provide comforting care for grandma in this next leg of her journey. 

Today's cards are from MFT March release!  First up is One Sweet Chick from the Pure Innocence collection!  I absolutely ADORE this set and it is perfect for making your spring cards!!  How can you resist that cute chick?

Next up is a card made using the FABULOUS Inspired By--Flowers Set#1!!  The flower images are so versatile and I really like the variety of sentiments too.  You'll note I used a different one for the inside and the outside of the card.  While shabby chic/vintage are not usually my style I felt these images really required the old world feel.
