Prayer Request

Earlier this week, I learned that my cousin D. has a malignant brain tumor which is inoperable.  She is currently in a local Hospice.  I would like to request prayers for her, her son, and her family.  D. is only 51 years old.  Her son K. is in college. 

This has been quite a shock for all who know & love her.  We want to spend as much time with her as we can.  Because there are so many who want to see her, a schedule is being set up for us to follow.  While that is difficult, we all want what is best for her and more than a few people in her room at a time is just too much for her. 

Last night I chose one of my cards, wrote her a letter and then today I picked up some flowers & went to see her for the first time.  I'm glad I didn't cry.  I gave her the card, told her about the letter & suggested she read it when she could and then I said "boy, this was a stupid thing you went and did."  It broke the ice and we all laughed.

Dec. 25

Hi all.  These cards were created with our Simply Scrappin Kit Christmas Jingle.  Our kits are absolutely wonderful.  They come with 3 sheets each of 12x12 double-sided paper, 2 sheets each of 12x12 Textured Card Stock and 2 sheets of each of 3 different 6x12 Die Cuts.  The Die Cuts are similar to stickers, they are thicker & are repositionable for up to 24 hours.  So making these cards were simple and fun!  Great for a night when you want to create but don't want to bring out the stamps, cleaner & so on.

I created another 5 cards almost exactly like these, one 8x8 scrapbook page, and 1 garland.  I will try to show you those in the upcoming days.  Guess what?  I still have lots of paper and die-cuts to create with.

Serene Snowflakes

One of my favorite SU designers is Sandi MacIver. I got my inspiration from her for this card. I didn't have the stamp set that she used so I used Serene Snowflakes with some of our new Shimmer Paint in Platinum. This one didn't come together as easily as some do though, maybe I've got bad mojo this week. I certainly feel like it. Persevere Deloris, it will get better.

Friday, my stamp group gets together, so I have something to look forward to, besides appointment after appointment this week.

Stamps - Serene Snowflakes
CS - Taken With Teal, Sahara Sand, Whisper White
Ink - Taken With Teal
Punches - 1-3/8, 1-1/4, 1 inch Circle, Scalloped Edge, Horizontal Slot
Accessories - Satin Ribbon, Stampin Write Marker, Coluzzle
DSP - Holiday Lounge

Very Merry

I'm back. I've had computer issues again & then I decided to take a break from blogging. When I first scanned this card it didn't show up very well because the base is white, so I added some Choc Chip CS behind it. I think it looks much better. Thanks for coming by to visit.

Stamps - Short & Sweet (retired), Autumn Days
