Life Gets Crazy!

Good morning friends! 
I finally have a card to share.
Life seems to constantly get in the way lately.  I wonder if anyone even comes to my little corner of the world.  I know my posts are sporadic at best. 
So here are to the people that still come by to see what I am up to.... ;)
I stamped a one layer card using this cute coffee stamp from Flourishes. (It's an older set that I borrowed from my mother-in-law!)  
The image was colored using Copic markers.  I added a bit of glossy accents to the centers of the flowers and the lemon wedge.  I wanted to bring out the yellow a bit more so I squeezed a few Nuvo drops. 
Here are two very good reasons why I don't post every day.  :)

Cortney's 22nd birthday is today! She also just celebrated her 1 year anniversary at Misericordia.  She is involved in yoga, aquatic therapy, Developmental Time (similar to a school day), art club, Special Olympics, Showtime, and the church choir. We bring her home frequently, like this past weekend when we celebrated her 22nd birthday.  I have started a fundraiser for Misericordia selling jewelry with their logo. I worked with a local jeweler who made my vision a reality.  In addition to that, Brian and I were asked to be on the board.  We start in August.  And finally, this past weekend, we stood on the corner for Misericordia's "Candy Days."  It was cold, windy, and rainy, but we both managed to collect 4 cans of money for this wonderful charity! 
This young man of mine is finishing up his sophomore year in college.  He started an internship with a gaming company and will continue through the summer. I am extremely proud of him and can't believe he will a junior! 
I always thought with the kiddos older, I would have a ton more time.  In some ways I do, but in other ways I have taken on more.  I still love to craft, but it has definitely taken a back seat to other aspects of my life.  I think sometimes I feel guilty?  LOL! Any of you ever go through this?  Where you think maybe it's time to give it up?
