I have tried to post several times this week-end, but am having internet issues.

So will try again. I did several cards I needed for March for VSN.
Here are two sympathy cards I unfortunately needed.

My Presence
Also, needed this
Thinking of you card
Thank you
I also did an April birthday card. Have to find the April thread.

Anyway VSN help me get a lot done!

Sharon, great job with VSN. I need another sympathy card, too. I'm tired of making them. I just want a big break from them.

Hello Everyone,

I'm posting the mid-March challenge for you. We already had a challenge to use bling, and my challenge is similar but it is : Glitter. You must make glitter a major part of your card. You can use glittered cardstock, Stickles, glue and loose glitter, whatever you like but there must be glitter on your card.

I have a selfish reason for posting this as my challenge. I need to do two birthday cards by the end of March. One for an 8 year old girl who says there can never be too much glitter. The other for an 12 year old girl who loves glitter and butterflies. So I'll be working on two cards for my own challenge.

I needed 14 cards for March, and have already posted 6. These 8 fulfill my goal. The Card Ministry cards shouldn't be counted toward that goal, but I also used at least three from my stash for March birthdays, so I think I'm done.

Note to self: Don't wait to upload a bunch of cards all at once. It's easier one or two at a time! LOL

So here's my first card for the challenge I posted to use glitter. It's for a friend's daughter who turns 8 this month. She adores glitter.

Too Much Glitter?

I only need 1 birthday card this month, for my mother in law's 60th birthday, so that will have to be a special one I still want to add more cards to my stash though, so I will stick to 5 for this month. Here's my first:

Checking out your cards now, Sharon. I played with some of the VSN challenges too, though I didn't get them posted to the gallery. I was gone Friday night so I did those plus 1 of Saturday's challenges on Saturday. I used them to make 3 St. Patty's Day cards, 4 birthday cards and 2 sympathy cards.

I had enough birthday cards for this month, but each time I have a birthday coming up, I decide I want to make a more personal card for that person. This is for my friend Sharon, who is a beginner card maker herself, but only makes cards at my house, withe my equipment and I knew she would love my new rolled roses. This one uses stickles so it qualifies for the sparkles challenge of this week.

I also needed a sympathy card this week.

Ina, I love your cards. I'm sorry you had to make a sympathy card. It seems like a lot of sympathy cards have been needed already this year and it's only the middle of March.

I would love to have one of those double leashes. I don't know if it will work with my dogs being so different in size. One is a German Shepherd/Malamute mix and the other is a Border Collie.

I was done with March cards, but found out this evening that I needed a sympathy card. I also made a card for the Card Ministry and two for my Sunday School ladies, both with illnesses this weekend.

Card Ministry

Lavender for the ladies (Two of these)

I will miss my dear friend a lot, but he knew he was going to heaven and looking forward to it. He lost a 5 year struggle with cancer, but we had him 2 years longer than expected. We used to meet every other Saturday morning at the grocery store and would have lovely chats. He and his wife have always been a great support to me. The tragedy is not that he died (being the same age as me...65) but that his daughter who is only 39 also has the same cancer as he had and is starting her 6th round of chemo this week. She has 4 young children. She is in pain and very weak, so I did not approach her at the funeral. So the card I made was for her.

Ina so sad about your friend's daughter.

Every time I think I'm caught up, something else happens, and I heard about another friend who was ill so made a card for her using today's TLC369.

I still have to get to work on my March Christmas cards.

I should be out gardening but our weather is so foul - freezing cold and a mix of hail and rain. So I'm spending the day in the craft room. Sorry for posting so many cards this month but it's all the fault of our abnormal weather! Here's another:

Waving at you from across Canada! The weatherman made a big blunder this week and sent you our usual March weather and we ended up with yours. I was gardening all day, in sunshine and 23 C. degrees (that's 73 F.) And it's only going to get better....24 tomorrow and 27 the next day. I should be all finished my garden and yard cleanup by then!

You're right - they definitely switched the weather. My parents live in Mississauga and for once, my mother gets to brag about her daffodils blooming before mine and how she's already sat on her patio drinking tea! I haven't even started my garden cleanup yet!!!!

A birthday card for my DD. This will be the second last one I make for this month. I really wanted to do sophiecat's challenge to use lots of ribbon, as I don't use ribbon nearly enough.......on this card, I used 4 different ribbons!
