Thoughts & Prayers

Hello & Happy Thursday!

The week is flying by!

Today we have some brilliant sunshine and our temps are to start going up!
Yippee Skippee because this cold, windy & snowy weather is starting to be a bit much.
I am hearing 50's by the weekend and I am SO happy about that!

I have a card to share today that was made for my last customer order. 
It is for a young, married woman who was burned back before Thanksgiving. She bent over to blow out a candle and her long hair caught fire and she has suffered major burns on her face, neck & chest. She is still hospitalized and going thru some very painful treatments and depression is setting in. My heart hurts for her....

Card Supplies:

Stamps: Thoughts & Prayers
Ink: Flirty Flamingo
Cardstock: Thick Whisper White, Flirty Flamingo, Whisper White
Accessories: Bloomin Heart Framelits, Flirty Flamingo Ruched Ribbon, Clear Wink of Stella, Rhinestones, Glue Dots, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

I hope this card will let her know that people are praying for her and also for the courage & strength to get thru what lies ahead. 

My thoughts today.....

That is all for now...
Thanks for stopping by!

Happy New Baby

Hello & Happy Wednesday!

It's been so cold & snowy since before Christmas.
We had a week of warm temps last week and it was so refreshing but now we are back to the cold again. We also had more snow last evening & overnight. I am hoping this cold snap will soon move along.

Yesterday my hubby spent the day working from home.
It's always nice to have him home but that work phone of his rings ALL THE TIME!
That drives me nuts!

So, today I have a baby card to share.
I very rarely make this type.

Card Supplies:

Stamps: Moon Baby
Ink: Memento Black, Copic Markers
Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Accessories: Stitched Shapes Framelits, Polka Dot EF., Triple Banner Punch, Bashful Blue Taffeta Ribbon, Rhinestones, Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

That's all for now!
Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!

Happy New Year!!

Hello & Happy Monday!

Happy New Year, too!
Did you make any resolutions this year?
I normally do not but I feel strongly on getting back on my bike this year and to be honest, I really miss it! I have not been on my bike since mid October!
I pledged to also get back on board with eating healthier, too! We've fallen off the horse pretty hard the last several months and I feel horrible. Exercise & eating better is a must!

I have also decided this year to do some things differently with blogging. No, i'm not stopping but going to not blab so much and just get to sharing what you all come here to see and that is something stamped!

So, on this January 1st 2018.... here is my first blog entry!

Coppery Happy Birthday Card Set:

Stamps: Rose Wonder
Ink: Versamark, Copper Embossing Powder
Cardstock: Thick Whisper White, Copper Foil, Year of Cheer Specialty DSP
Accessories: Stitched Shapes Framelits, Oval Layering Framelits, Copper Trim, Heat Gun, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

That paper was SO pretty with the mix of foils in it!
A great card to start off the new year!

My thoughts today....

That's all for now!
Wishing you all a very happy & healthy 2018!
Thanks for stopping by & make it a great day!

Hello & Happy Sunday!

Can't believe it is the last day of 2017!
How are you spending your last day of the year?
We are hanging out at home and will have a special meal as we usually do for New Year's Eve but we never stay up late anymore to watch the ball drop. We are lucky to stay awake until 10 pm most nights! LOL

So as I usually do for New Year's Eve....I do a "Year in Review" of some special cards or projects that I made this past year. Some months you will see more than one card! I had alot of favorites!
