Happy in Apathy

Happy Wednesday!  Or maybe not.  Wet hen upset on my homefront but know it will soon pass.  These things take time.  Just keep breathing.  :-)  My cards for today are simple.  In fact, I am going back to CAS again . 
The first is a one layer with a pop up heart punch.  The rest is stamping.  It so reminds me of when I first started stamping.  Perhaps I have not progressed as much as I thought?  This is for my Crafty Creations Challenge this week which is "Get Well".

I am sending out get well wishes to a friend of mine and hope that she is back to her self soon.  Also want to say a prayer for those struck by the tornadoes in Joplin.  What  devastation they have endured.   Horrible storms are occurring every week it seems.  It reminds me that I don't have time to be angry, instead I need to seek those I love and thank them.  Thank you for reading this!

Beautiful cards, Amy! I love the CAS designs. Sweet stamping on the first. LOVE that ice cream cone on the second.
Hope things pick up for you soon. Sounds like you're under some stress these days. ((hugs))

Beautiful CAS cards. I love the ice cream cone too; I hope you will link this to this week's summer challenge at Betty Bee's Buzz:



Fabulous cards and lovely post!


These are so cute Amy! Love the second one especially- so bright and fun. Sometimes I think CAS are harder to make than all those layers because you need precision and have to plan everything out.

These cards are so cute! I love that ice cream cone! I may have to case that!


Love your cas get well card Amy. The little heart in the scallop square is soooo sweet. :)Peggy


Both cards are fabulous. I have also been mindful, of those who have been dealing with so much devastation. And I try to remember that the stuff that I am dealing with is nothing in comparison. Blessings ~ Tameko
