You are Fabulous!

Here is a card I made using some products from the Seasonal Expressions catalog.  



I love love love the Brushstrokes Stamp set.  I randomly stamped it on Daisy White Cardstock in Flaxen, Sunset and of course Glacier (my favorite new color).   I used the You're The Bomb Stamp set, which is the Operation Smile Set, so for every set sold CTMH is donating $3...don't you love it!!

Please Pray for Trucker Duke




There is a little guy named Trucker who needs a miracle...he is a battle for his life....He is 19 months old and has been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer....here is a link to his story Click Here.

I was so moved by this story that I just wanted to do something to help.  I had a craft show that I was going to be doing on Dec. 6th so I decided to make 10 hand-stamped leather bracelets to sell for $20 each with all the money going to Trucker's Cancer Fund.

I sold 7 and was able to give the money to Trucker's Grandma who was there along with 2 bracelets for Mom and Dad.  She asked if I was going to be selling then anywhere and I did not have an answer for her.  June K Harper a professional photographer and the administrator of the Team Trucker Facebook page, called me to say they had had requests for the bracelets and how could people order them?  I had set up an Etsy Store and never did anything with it so I decided to list the bracelets for people to buy.  It has been 6 days and I have sold 18 bracelets through Etsy that is $360 plus I have sold an additional 8 at church so that is a total of $520 going to Trucker's Cancer Fund...Thank you Jesus!!


PLEASE PRAY for Trucker...he needs a miracle, but our God is a God of miracles!!  If you feels moved to donate go here  If you would like to order a bracelet...all of the $20 goes to Trucker's Fund go HERE

Boy oh Boy

Boy oh boy there are baby boys popping out all over.  Another young couple just had a precious baby boy.  Here is the card I made for them.

I used the Artfully Sent Cartridge. I cut the base out of Lagoon cardstock, the interior is Daisy White and the onesies were cut out of the Snowhaven paper.   



It took me about 15 minutes to make this card, but it looks much more time consuming......LOVE this cartridge.  I stamped the sentiment using the SOTM stamp set, It's the Little Things.  I love how it turned out.  Now I just have to write my message inside and deliver the gift. 

Thanks for hopping by:)
