Beautiful card! This looks like a tough challenge for me I don't usually use orange except at Halloween so I'm going to have to think about this one. Glad to know that you are on the down side of cleaning out your Mom's house. That's a tough job. I had to work through my brother's house after he passed away. Took a vacation but I did get in under the wire last night for last week's challenge! Hope you are well! Big hugs.

Another GORGEOUS creation from Selma! Thanks ladies for the fun challenge ... this one will get my brain working.
Good luck Joan with finishing the clean out ... that's a tough job both physically & mentally! I will keep you & your family in my prayers that it all goes well!

Those new Springtime Cardinal stamps are gorgeous, and Selma's card, as always is fabulous. You're in my thoughts as you deal with cleaning out your mom's house, getting ready for the auction. Aside from sorting everything out, the memories that come flooding back can be emotionally draining. It is tough to do. I'm glad you have your family to help.

My heart goes out to you Joan and your family as you deal with sorting and selling. I'm sure there are many wonderful memories you are sharing, recalling, and laughing about during this final task of closure. The memories will always remain and the "things" will find a new home to create wonderful memories for another family. Keeping you in thought and prayers. "Hugs" Carol

Thinking of you as you tackle this chore. It has to tug on your heart strings! I've been so busy I haven't had time to make any entries for your challenges and I'm missing playing along. Hoping to get my ducks in a row soon!

What a gorgeous sample card! That bird looks like it flew right onto your card and will fly off any second! I love the flowers too! Thanks for another fun challenge - it's good to be back playing again.
