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 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

Thanks for hopping by and PLEASE Pray for Trucker!!

Below are the 5 advent calendars I made to sell.

Here are some of the cards I will be selling.

I used all of the adhesive I had.....I ran out of refills and here are all the applicators awaiting to be refilled.
