Live Inspired - CTMH Convention Swap Card

I hope you all enjoyed the July SOTM Blog Hop yesterday. If you haven't had a chance to do so, the information for it and my card is in the post before this one.

Well, I finally did it. I got 35 swap cards made and THREE days left to make more. Yeah right!!!

I told my team months ago that because of the chronic pain I've had for more then a year, that I was not making swap cards this year. Well, they sort of talked me into it and said how much fun I'd miss. But honestly, after 13 years of convention swap cards, it seemed like more of a chore then fun. The pain did not allow me to make them anyway so I gave up on the idea. Then a wonderful thing happened to me last Wednesday. I went to the Hospital for an Epidural. Well, they shot steroids into my spine and 95% of my chronic pain is gone. So, last night after the kids went home I started on some cards. I expect to have 35 of them done by this evening. I have to send the grandbabies home first because having a 1 year old and a 3 yr. old with me all day does not make a very productive card making day.

This card was inspired by a sketch from Card Patterns Sketch #70

The paper pack used is called Top Stitch.

The Main Stamp set is "Live Inspired" - C1408.
I also used the little butterflies from "A Flitter" - A1108

Other challenges using this card:
Incy Wincy - Things with Wings
If the Shoe Fits Scrap It - Wings
