Amuseapalooza & Some Updates

I've joined in on the A*MUSEA*PALOOZA fun, have you? Check it out by clicking the picture above, or at my sidebar.

Here's the card I made for the color challenge over there. My superhero is very brave to wear a purple cape and accessories, huh? I drew a second cape for the sentiment.

Personal info:

You may....(or not) noticed that I have not been posting, or commenting as much as usual. I have some personal issues in the family, and it has been keeping me busier, and away from my computer more. Another issue is my DH will be changing shifts soon. My whole schedule will have to be adjusted, and I'm afraid I will not be able to continue being the night owl that I've grown accustomed to being.

After my current blog candy winner is announced, I will be turning my comments off. I will continue to post here, and blurf when possible (I can't stay away, 'cause you all are sooooo inspiring to me!!!) I have my contact button posted at my sidebar, and you are welcome to get a hold of me that way if you're interested.

Thanks so much for your awesome support and encouragement!! I am so very grateful!!

Rose Ann- Please know that your beautiful creativity, inspiration and personality will be so missed! Your kind comments regarding my cards mean so very much to me- more than I can put into words. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers for this time of change in your lives. Family always comes first! Remember that I am always an e-mail or blog comment away! Take care! Your friend, Beth

Oh My Rose Ann ~ I will miss your comments so much! However, I understand when you have personal issues, well you just do. Another however, you have really built up my self esteem with your comments and it has meant the world to me. I thank you for that!! I will remember you and yours in my prayers and hope that this new chapter in your life will be an easy move. God Bless! Velta

Turning comments off - what a great idea!!! :) You can still bless others with you ideas, but you don't have to feel pressured to "keep up" with other bloggers. I'll have to think about that one!!

I pray that you'll adjust quickly to your new schedule and that the family pressures will sort themselves out. I know that it can take time and test your patience. I'm so thankful that there is a God who cares and offers comfort and encouragement during times like this.

God Bless you!

Your card is so fun Rose Ann!

I hope whatever is going on personally, settles down for you and works out. I'd hate to see a friend(yes that's you ;) ) going through something. I do know your email and your address so I will definitely be keeping in touch with you!

Big hugs

This card is SUPER! I'm sure any "super" hero would love it. I hope everything works itself out Rose Ann and you adjust to the new schedule quickly. :)

Hi Rose Ann...this card is just the cutest. Love the purple cape and how genius of you to make a cape for the sentiment ;p

I'm sorry that life's taken a turn...however it's in those times that we grow and become better people for. I don't wish it on anyone, but it's a fact of life and I'll be praying for you during this time. Hope to see more of your creations on a continuous basis. Hugs!!

Alexandra said...

Okay, first off, your card ROCKS! I love the purple, he is very hip, LOL! Next, I am so very sad to hear that you are going through a challenging time right now, I hate to see friends (and I count you as one of them) go through this. I will miss you very much and will email to keep up with you - your inspiration and wonderful comments make my day! *STAMPIN HUGS* Alex

This is a SUPER creative to draw a cape for the sentiment! As always I love visiting your blog and will continue to do so. Blssings to you!

peanutbee said...

First, your card ROCKS! You're right, he's VERY secure in his manhood to be wearing a purple cape.

I'm sorry to hear that you'll be away, but you definitely have to take care of family first. I really enjoy your work and I'm glad to hear that you'll still be sharing when you can, but you will be missed! Very warm thanks are being sent your way for all your SWEET SWEET comments.
