Big Shot Die:  Mini Milk Carton - Occassions Mini
Cardstock:  Rich Razzleberry, Perfect Plum, Old Olive

NSR: Update on Joel

He came through surgery with flying colours, and the MRI he had on Sunday  morning says ALL TUMOUR IS GONE!!  WHOOT!!  Now they are waiting on pathology to determine if it is malignant or not.

Please continue to pray for Joel and his family.


For updates, please visit Cheryl's Blog.

I will have a project to share with you later today :)

NSR: Please pray - for Joel

I heard some awful news this morning, and the same news from another friend this afternoon.  I am calling on you, my faithful readers, to pray for this little boy.  He is 4/5 years old, and has been suffering headaches.  Yesterday they discovered a brain tumour.  At 8:30am today, he went into surgery at the children's hospital in the National Capital Region.  The surgery was to take 8-14 hours. I have no new news.  Please feel free to hop on over to On The Old Path and read about Joel, and his amazing parents, and the start of his incredible journey!

I'd like to call out to my paper crafting friends, for those who would like to send an encouraging card to Joel or his parents/family.   My heart hurts at the suffering of this child!

If you would like to send a greeting, please leave a comment and I will get an address to you :)

An Easter MDS creation

I was in a chat and challenge on a group I belong to, last night.  I was so tired I just couldn't get my paper and adhesives out!  But I could create in MDS :)  MDS is My Digital Studio, and it's super fantatic!!!  I know I have not even begun to scratch the surface of al this can do :)

Anyway, here's my creation:
SUPPLIES - ALL My Digital Studio
Stamps:  All Holiday
Cardstock: Certainly Celery with the opacity changed to appear like vellum, Perfect Plum, Whisper White
Ink:  Going Grey
Accessories:  brads, Soft Flowers DSP, Curly Label Punch, flowers I cannot recall at the moment...  Summer days something.

It was quick, it was easy, and it is easily duplicated with paper and ink! :)
