Noel



This is one of the cards I did this weekend. The paper is from the Just Chillin' set by CTMH, the snowflake is from the set New Fallen Snow (CTMH) and the letters are from Typewriter Keys, also CTMH.

This week has been horrid. On Monday, I realized that someone stole my beautiful double stroller! I cannot afford to have it replaced...it was a Peg-Perago double stroller. I am so pissed off! I NEED that for my day care.
I am really upset by this. It bothers me that someone would waltz into my yard and steal somethinbg that is so necessary in my life. Consequently, I am pretty depressed and haven't taken the kids out for a walk all week.

OMG Michelle, how horrid that someone would steal from you!!
My sister runs a daycare and I know how important strollers, high chairs... are to running a business.

Your card is beautiful, I love the colors!

Stop on by my blog today as I have started to post the many pictures that I took of all the WONDERFUL items that you sent in the swap.

Love your card, the color is fantastic.I have lots of CTMH stamps and about 99 percent of my stamp pads are CTMH. That is terrible about the stroller, I am so sorry to hear it.

Michelle, my jaw dropped when I saw this card...it is simply GORGEOUS!!!

Those colors are stunning together...the blue is so bright and vivid! WOW!

Then my jaw dropped again when I read about someone stealing a stroller. WTH...I can't believe someone would be so horrid!!! I am so sorry you are having to deal with this. I hope it gets returned to you. (Although chances are it won't) HUGS.

love these colors!! The card is gorgeous.
I am always shocked when people steal things outta yards, especially dogs! What is wrong with people?!!
Hope you find a way to replace it, kids need their walkies.

Melissa said...

Extremely fun card Michelle.

Yep, I would be angry too. I am hopeful that it will be returned. So sorry about the inconvenience and the injustice of it all.

Michelle said...

So sorry to read about your stroller being stolen. Sadly, people just never cease to amaze me.

Your card is just gorgeous!

Your card is very nice. I like the colors.

I'm so sorry to hear about the stroller. How awful! Did you actually take the time to report it to the police? You might want to do that! It doesn't bring it back, but it lets them know that it happened in the first place. I'm so sorry!

Jenn D said...

I can't believe someone would have the nerve to do that.

This card is gorgeous! Simply stunning.

brn2scrp said...

Wow - I can't believe someone would steal a stroller. I'm so sorry!!! Clearly it must be someone with little children ... I shudder to think that someone with those kinds of values is bringing up kids.

On the upside, your card is GORGEOUS!!!

Patsy said...

What a great card. Love those colors. Enjoyed visiting your blog. You are very talented. Be back soon.

MEG BEE said...

I love this CTMH paper! Awesome card! So sorry about the stroller... I will pray something good comes of this!

Inky Hugs,

How desperate would someone be that they would steal a stroller? Look at it this way - you are blessed that you don't need to steal to have the things your family needs to have a good life. You are also blessed to have a strong moral base that you you know right from wrong. You have so much more than this thief, a stroller pales in comparison.

Holy Moly, Michelle. This is absolutely gorgeous!!!

Love your card Michelle. Your snowflake matches your paper so well and the circle sentiment ties everything together. Awesome job.

I'm sorry to hear about your stroller. It's sad that someone would steal something like a stroller. . .knowing that the item they're stealing is affecting a child. Maybe they'll feel bad and return it.

Hope you feel better soon!

Oh dear! I'm sorry to hear about your stroller! I've been in your shoes, not with a stoller, but it does not feel good to have something stolen.
What a fun card! Great color combo!
