It's our 2nd Blogaversary at Get Creative Challenges

Well, we've reached the age of 2 years old and still keen to keep going. If you pop over to the challenge blog you can read up what we will be doing next year and you can also try out for a spot on the DT as well. Just add DT after your name when you add your entry into the challenge.
The theme for the challenge is Birthday and our sponsors are Aliciabel and Dr. Digi.
 I'm a bit behind the eight ball lately as we are still coping with my brother-in-law's heart attack and all the health problems that he is having to contend with. He is still in ICU and will be for a while and possibly still in hospital at Christmas time. It's only 8 days until our son and DIL leave to live in Vietnam, I really do not feel in the festive mood.
Anyway..... onto the challenge. I have used a cute image from Aliciabel.
Here it is.....

Challenge #169 at Aud Sentiments

Back again with another challenge at Aud Sentiments. This time it is Anything Goes with a Sentiment and we were allowed to use anything we liked.
Here is my card...... I saw a card similar to this on Pinterest and really liked it so I've cased it but used a different image, some circle dies and centred it on my card. I computer generated the Holy, Holy, Holy to use.
Recipe:
SU
White cardstock from stash
DP from Kaisercraft
Image with sentiment from a free Colouring Page found online
Words  Holy, Holy, Holy computer generated
Copic Markers

Please scroll down to the 10th November and check out last challenges card which I thought I had scheduled to post but nope it didn't, it was still in draft form. I've been very preoccupied with family and coping with my brother-in-laws heart attack and critical condition. He is still not very good with some more operations to come.

We would love to see you come over to the challenge blog and enter. It's such an easy challenge as you can create anything you want!!! Looking forward  to seeing  your creations.

Challenge 135 at Crafting From The Heart

Hi everyone, sorry I'm late with my post but my brother-in-law has suffered a heart attack which damaged one of his valves and he has had major surgery and has been in critcal condition and is now in an induced coma. I've been in the hospital with his wife keeping her company and trying to keep it together. He is not recovering as they would like so will be kept in a coma for several more days.

Challenge #168 at Aud Sentiments Challenges

Oh my goodness, I thought I had scheduled this post and now I find it's not been here at all. The stress of coping with my brother-in-laws heart attack and all the ensuing health problems that he has and will have in the future, and also still being uncertain of him being here at all because his organs are not up to scratch, has taken a toll on us all and I have not been functioning well myself. So..... here I am backdating this one and a little later today (24/11/16) I will be posting the new challenge that starts today. I apologise to those who entered the last challenge who I was supposed to comment on their entries. I will still try to do that as I know I get a bit down if nobody comments on my entries into challenges.
The sponsor for challenge #168 is Aurora Wings and the theme is Anything Goes and a sentiment.
Here is the card I made....
Recipe:
SU Gumball Green
White card from stash,

I've had a busy day today with church, lunch with my daughter & granddaughter, a catch up with a friend who is coming on a short cruise with me next year and a visit to the Flight Centre to pay our deposit, coffee and chat with her and then back home again. Only home for 5 minutes before going with hubby to pick up a dressing table from a friend, then zig-zagging our way through all the back streets going to a couple of garage sales before calling in on our other daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter. They were kind enough to feed us tea. Back to the youngest daughter's place to drop off the furniture and help sort out some bits and pieces for a hard rubbish pick up. Feeling tired and need a decent sleep as babysitting our 10month old grandson tomorrow.
So catch you all on my next post.

Love to see your makes this time around! Come by the neighborhood and join in the challenge!

Thanks for stopping by,
Take Care,
Hugs, Sandy
