About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

This week's challenge at CASology is . I was also cruising the net and stopped by Stamp TV. They are doing a blog hop also with a CAS card but you can only embellish with things that sparkle. So I decided to combine the two challenges. This is my rendition:
The green ribbon represents Bi-Polar disorder. I have a family member who have been diagnosed with Bi-Polar disorder and would love to find a way to  erase the stigma of mental illness. So, my hope is that someday, there will be a cure. The disease is manageable, but wouldn't be great if it could be eradicated all together?

I have some other projects in mind for today, but I am in quite a bit of pain, so I may or may not be able to work on them. If I am up to it, I will see you later on today, if not, most likely tomorrow.

Please feel free to ask questions, leave comments, suggestions, etc.



  1. What a sweet little window! A perfectly clean and simple card with a bit of bling thrown in...love it! So glad you joined in on the fun at CASology this week!

  2. Love your sparkly ribbon - and what a great way to draw attention to a disease that is often misunderstood. Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology this week!

  3. Very nice card. I love your blingy ribbon.

  4. Lovely card! I love the sparkly green ribbon...and the way you've showcased the "hope" from inside the card!

  5. Wow, that little blingy ribbon packs a lot of punch on a wonderfully CAS card. I work with students who have Bipolar Disorder and I agree, while it is manageable, it would be great if it was no more! Thanks for sharing and for playing along at CASology this week!

  6. what a pretty take on both challenges! thanks so much for playing along with CASology this week!
