A Big Thank You and a New Card...

First of all, I want to thank everyone who emailed and left me all the wonderful comments regarding my post a few days ago pertaining to my brother. I feel so blessed to have so many wonderful friends!

On To The Card...

I made this card last week and haven't had time to share it on my blog yet. I really like how it turned out.

Tomorrow I'm going to my friend Shelley's house for a day of stamping! I've got lots of images colored and hope to get them made into cards. I need to get some Christmas Cards completed so hopefully I'll make some progress tomorrow.

I hope to have some new cards to show you tomorrow night. I know you all are probably tired of seeing Magnolias.

A Very Personal Post

Me and my brother... Christmas 2004

I'm not sure that I have ever shared this information on my blog, but I am compelled to post today because it is a very difficult day for me and my parents, niece and family.

One year ago today, my brother committed suicide. One year ago today was the worst day of my life. One year ago today, I lost my only sibling. One year ago today, I watch my parents lose a child and witnessed the heartwrenching pain they would endure.

This past year has been difficult. My brother left behind a beautiful 10 year old daughter. She misses her daddy.

Today, I will spend the day with my parents and try to get through the day as best we can. Please say a prayer for us.

I'll be back in a day or two with some cards to share.

A Baby Card For Triplets!

A dear friend of mine asked me to make a special Baby Card for a friend of hers who just gave birth to triplets. I really am happy with how it turned out and my friend and the new mother Loved it too!

The stamp is from an old Stampin Up retired set. I used copic markers to color the image and the DP is Nana's Nursery-Boy edition. I used SU cardstock and ink to sponge in the sky and grass.

Today is my 21st Wedding Anniversary! I can't believe I've been married that long! My hubby and I will go out for a nice dinner tomorrow night. He works nights so we couldn't go tonight. Here is a pretty recent picture of the two of us taken back in May.

Happy Anniversary Honey! I Love you!!

Another Monday.... it just me or are the days flying by this year? I can't believe we are half way through September already! I hope everyone had a good weekend, and I hope that all my fellow stampers that were in Hurricane Ike's path are ok and got through it with minimal damage.

I haven't made any new cards in the past few days, but I did get to color some new Magnolias. I'm hoping to get the cards put together this week. Here's a card I made last week.

Today I went to see the new movie "The Women". Very cute movie! Amazingly, there wasn't one single solitary male in this movie. The story line was cute and I LOVE Meg Ryan!

Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!

Just A Swing'in

Here's another card I created last week. I just love the swing and can't wait to play more with it. I also bought the Big Old Oak Tree and I'm going to try my hand at creating a scene with some of the accessorie stamps I have.

I colored Edwin with Copic Markers and sponged the sky background.

I made some new cards tonight and have to take pictures of them to share with you tomorrow.

Have a great day.. and thanks for visiting!

What's up Cupcake??

I made this card last week and due to a busy week and weekend I'm just getting around to posting it. I am absolutely in love with this Tilda! Isn't she the sweetest!

I colored her with my Copic Markers and sponged the blue background behind her. I added stickles for a little bling. I used my Oval Nestabilities and the designer paper is DCWV from a paper pack I bought at JoAnns.

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I'll be back tomorrow to share another card.

Thanks for stopping by!
