Make It Monday #16: Sympathy

Hello All,

A lot of people in my surrounding community could really use a sympathy card, but more than a card, they could use a lot of other things much more, like shelter and food.  I live in Joplin, Mo and you have probably heard about the horrible tornado that past through here last Sunday.  Thankfully my family and I were away from home and also thankfully the tornado changed directions about 1 mile or so  before our house.  I feel very blessed to have a home to come HOME to when so many around me don't.  It is heartwarming to see all the surrounding communities come together and help ours.  I put together this card with all the people who have lost loved ones in mind. 

Thanks for stopping by,

5 and Dime Cards

I recently purchased the October Afternoon 5 and Dime collection, and I absolutely love it!  I have been waiting a while to buy it and finally got around to it.  I have been working on a lot of cards to get published and the time has been paying off. I have three more cards that will be in the October 2011 CARDS magazine!!! This is so exciting for me and I have to say that having goals has greatly improved my SAHM life.  I get so excited thinking about all the possibilities in this little hobby I love!!  Thanks to all who keep up with my blog and for all your encouraging words, it makes me smile!!

Here are my two boys! Over and over again they prove what a blessing children truly are!  I don't know what I would do without them in my life! Everyday Ethan is saying something precious, for example at the craft store yesterday he said " Mom I want to buy that pink girls book" I said Why? "To give it to you from the bottom of my Heart" I have no clue where he gets this stuff, but it is priceless! Owen is such a happy baby, he literally laughs when you just talk to him.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by,

Paper Smooches Guest Designer Search

Hello all,

I'm popping in to share my creation for the Paper Smooches Designer Search. I can't believe how cute this little bee is and it was absolutely free (digi stamp)!!! Bee was Free LOL! Anyway I have been thinking about participating in this challenge for a while and finally decided to give it a go during today's nap time.  Little E woke up early so I finished stamping the sentiment with him hanging on my legs! Talk about challenging, but he was curious.  By the way the sentiment is a combination of words and letters I put together with this stamp set from PTI.

Thanks for stopping in and be sure to check out the other great creations from this challenge, they are great!


PS: The picture doesn't really show it, but I used clear glitter on the wings and eyes.
