Is your story being lost?

Too often with technology today, photos and communication are all digital. People Facebook, Twitter, Skype, text and email instead of writing a letter or card. Photos are one in a dozen, because you have a million of them on your phone, ipad, or computer. All great things...but where does it all go. Things aren't being written anymore. Stories of our emotions, feelings, and memories are somewhere out there in cyberspace. Families are so very busy (GUILTY), that we don't take time to stop and share the stories.

Our story is being lost. There is so much to tell. This is my core reason I create cards and scrapbook pages. I don't want my story to be lost. I still want to be able to write a special sentiment to someone, a tangible expression of my feelings. I don't want all the events of my life to be lost on the Timeline of Facebook. I want my story to outlast the latest technology craze.

Christmas in August?

I have been in a card challenge group since January, and wanted to share one of the cards I made for the group. The goal is to build up our stash of cards. I tend to be a last minute kinda person, so this challenge has been great for me.

Footloose Card

I have been very busy making cards from the items I got in my consultant kit, I have made 17 cards over past week. I hope my family doesn't feel neglected.

This card was made with the edge designs on the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge ( which is my absolute favorite cartridge), Footloose paper pack.
