Update on Joel!!

To summarize... Joel and his Mom, Cheryl, got a weekend pass!!!  They are home!!  He has to start radiation on Monday at 1pm, but has to fast, so Cheryl is praying for an earlier time slot to open up for him this weekend :)  Please join me in praying for Cheryl and Joel, and the family they have at home :)

I'm still collecting up cards to send to cheer Joel, cheer Cheryl, and some blank ones for Cheryl to use at her discretion :)  Thank you so much to those that have sent cards for Joel and Cheryl! :)

I have one to share here, but gotta get it off the camera first :)  Check back in a bit! :)

testing blog background

A Moment of Brilliance!

I was blog surfing just now.  I am avoiding housework and the nasty swarmy bugs outside, like the plague!  For now.  Anyway, for the past couple months, I've been pondering something.  I have now accumulated a few Stampin' Up! Clear Mount stamp sets.  I am so loving them!!!  LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!  Seriously.  I'm thinking of unmounting all my other stamp sets! :)

Anyway, I've been wondering how to store these beauties.  I've thought of shelves... but they will fall over. I thought of the CD racks that we no longer use. but they are too small.  Today, while blog surfing, I saw someone's storage solution... DVD BOXES!  Duh, why didn't I think of that before?  Michael was recently clearing out the stuff we have accumulated in our basement.  We have 2 or 3 of these DVD boxes.  I was wondering what to do with them.... and now I know!!  I haven't dug them out yet, to see if they will work, but I can't imagine that they won't, since our SU! cases are the same size as DVD cases... so, let's give it a whirl!!

Here's what they look like... I'll take pics of my stuff in them later!

For the Bride

It's wedding season, and there is a beautiful wedding stamp set in the Summer Mini!  See the link to the right to download your own copy of the summer mini!

So I got playing with it last night, and I LOVE what I did :D

Stamps:  Medallian Background, Blissful Bride (Summer Mini)
Ink:  Versamark, Pretty in Pink marker
Cardstock:  Basick Black, Whisper White
Accessories:  Aqua Painter, Detail Black Embossing Powder, embossing buddy, stampin' dimensionals

note:  If you click to biggify the image, you will see that the wedding gown is textured.  I simply took the back edge of my paper snips (a must have for all paper crafters... sorry, I digress) and rubbed them on the edge of Whisper White cardstock, thus getting the fibres.  You can use this for cakes, dresses, flowers, whatever you like :)  It was fun, altho a bit dusty/messy :)

See ya!
