Thank you…and some news!


I bought this stamp a few weeks ago, and almost returned it.  After I got it home I decided maybe it just wasn’t my style.  A couple nights ago, I started playing, and decided I love this stamp!  I stamped with versamark, then embossed with detail white powder.  I used a sponge and distress inks to colour inside the image, the excess wiped off easily with a paper towel.  The Thank you is from Hero Arts, the background stamp is from SU.  The tag is a nestibility, and the flowers are from Wild Orchid in the UK.  I was so excited to get this box of flowers!  I have wanted them for so long, and finally decided to just do it!  They were here in 1 week!  How’s that for service… awesome!!!

I have had some wonderful news lately and thought it was time I shared!  I had a phone call just a while back, it was my oldest son Mike, telling me that he and his girlfriend are expecting a child!!  You can only imagine how excited I was!  My first grandchild!  2 weeks later I get a phone call from my youngest son Shawn, and he and his girlfriend are expecting a child as well!  OMGOSH!  2 grandchildren in one  year!!!  How happy am I?  lol    I couldn’t be happier with all this wonderful and exciting news!  The babies are due October 20th and December 7th.  Mike and Jen had an ultrasound done to find out the sex of the baby, and it’s a BOY!  Shawn and Brittany want to be surprised, so I will be patient! lol

I am going to finally have the surgery I have been waiting for!  It’s on Friday, and I will be in the hospital for 3 or 4 days, then home to rest, relax and heal for about 8 weeks.  I know this is going to be a huge help for me, and I will finally be able to go back to work.  I have been off since mid December. 

I am also going to school.  I started in February, and am taking Medical Transcription.  It is a year long course, and I am really enjoying it.  I am a bit ahead and will be writing my mid-term at the end of the month.  So far I am doing very well.  I am hoping I can keep it up, as I would love to graduate with high honours!  Wish me luck!!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I will try to get some cards made and posted in the next few weeks, but that will really depend on how I am feeling.  I hope you will stop by and check often! 

Have a wonderful day!




Stampotique Designers Challenge – What summer means to you

This week over at the Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog the theme is “What summer means to you.”  I decided to have some fun and used a Stampotique frog, and some flowers!  You see lots of those during the summer season. All stamps are from Stampotique

Ok, now a funny….it was my friend Val’s birthday today, and when I was making this card, I was giggling, thinking it would be perfect for her, being the Diva she is.  We always try to outdo each other with bling, she once gave me a card with 17 crystals on it!  So this year I decided I was going to break her record big time!  I put a ton of pearls on this card, and knew she was going to crack up when she saw how many there were!  I was right, she just laughed when she saw it, and now is trying to figure out how she is going to top this!!  Happy Birthday Val!!


If you have a chance, we would love to see your summer creation over at the Stampotique designers challenge blog!  You can use any stamps this week, and you have a chance to win a 15 dollar gift certificate from Stampotique!!

Have a wonderful evening, and thank you so much for stopping by!
