Stop by and check out these holidays as I am sure you are going to want to remember these holidays and include them in your card making projects!!!!!

This month I have done something a little different. This project is something I made in March. It is very simple but it is totally about relaxation. I was in a situation where I needed to be able to mentally go to another place and relax.. This little card was something I carried around in my pocket at work and at home..... It is very simple but this was an a big part of my recovery.

We will have blog candy to the lucky recipient that remarks on each site along the way!
Check out Lucy's blog for her project!
