Rosey True Friend

Good Morning Friends! I bet you thought I forgot about you? Well, rest assured, I did not. Summer always is so busy for us with Gardening, Traveling and Loafing! HA!

Anyway, I needed a card for my SIL who was just diagnosed Monday with AVM. Arteriovenous Malformation is a snarled tangle of arteries and veins that disrupts the process of blood flow. There is still much we do not know at this time; she still needs to see a specialist soon. This is the SIL that has 4 girls and one of them has special needs. We are all very worried but, are trying to think positive for her sake.

I have been trying to do my best to work on stashes of DP, I am nearly finished with this pack! You cannot tell by the picture (no sun today) that I had used glitter for the flower center....looks better IRL!

Thanks for looking and Happy Crafting!!

Bright Cardinal Christmas

Good Morning Friends! I have had this stamp for a very long time! Still love it and probably will never get rid of it! I like this image much better than the one that was offered by SU!

Used Prismas and Baby Oil for the coloring....took quite sometime to get the best color combo down. Had to cover up the sentiment on the orginal stamp and I can see now that the one I used to cover it up is a bit crooked....oh well! Hope you like it!

Make it a great day!!

Blog Awards I Have Recieved

I want to thank the lovely ladies for bestowing on me these Awards. Thanks for sending them my way and supporting me in this adventure in the world of blogging. You are both very creative ladies and so sweet too!

The I Like Your Style came from my friend Julie at Special Craft Mom to 4 Julie is so very sweet and creative. I know her from the SCS Shoebox Swap here in St. Louis. Every month we get together at a different person's house to have fun and share a card with each other.

Her rules are that I have to give this to 5 other bloggers. So, here's to Dina, Jo, Steph, JD and Rebecca. You five ladies are creative, supportive and sweet...and I love your style!! Thanks!

This award came from Linda at ~Linda's Crafty Creations~ Another super creative lady who does some amazing coloring on her images and embellishes with relish! Thanks Linda!

Maybe you can pass one, or both, of these on to someone you know that deserves to be recognized for the sweet creative person they are!

Make it a great day!
