This card qualifies for several challenges. Thank goodness, because
it was quite a challenge. I am on vacation and did not bring a thing
with me. Thought there would be no time, but discovered I have a bit
of down time so why not? So I went to Big Lots and Hobby Lobby
thinking I could get the basics cheap. Yeah I know, I'm dillusional!
After I had to pick my mother's jaw up off the floor in just getting
the bare necessities, I realized I was still lacking
quite a bit. It is like camping but much worse!!!
I felt like I was on one of those cooking shows where you get
3 very odd ingredients and you have to create a masterpiece.
(Not that this is a masterpiece!)
Where is my cricut, punches, score-board, flowers, buttons, good, paper cutter, cutter bug scissors, My friend's cuttlebug?!!!! The list goes on! What century are we in here? This was worse than when I first started. I am having withdrawls!
I am fully aware that a lot of this is crooked, esp. the circles and sentiment,
but I tried with the very puny set of tools I had. I got what I paid for with the paper cutter.
Not very good! Oh well inspite of roughing it, this is what I came up with.

Inside- You are in Our thoughts and Prayers
and: And warm thoughts during this difficult time
This card is for a dear friend battling cancer.

I must point out my crooked handy work!
