I did make this card a long time ago as I still haven't been in my closer to being finished with reno stamp room! I have a list a mile long of cards I need to make so I am hoping to get some stamp time in SOON! have a great day!

A card for my dad

I made this card for my dad for his birthday last year. It's not a newly made card because I haven't been able to use my stamp room for over 2 weeks! It's being renovated and it's taken longer than I wanted. I think I am going to love it when it is done (hopefully this week)! Anyway, I love this card. I don't really know why, I just do! My dad is such an amazing guy. He is the most generous, kind, loving guy I have ever known. The kids love spending time with Grandpa and we are thankful everyday that we are so close to him. My dad and I love having coffee together- it's our "thing". We both have Keurig coffee machines and whenever we are at each others houses we right away make coffee for each other! I love my dad!

Penny Simkin is a doula. Not just any doula, but an amazing woman who has changed birth in this past generation. You can check her out, one look at her resume and you will see why I love her! I have read all her books and studied her work for years. Last summer I had the pleasure of not only meeting her, but being taught by her! I could bairly focus the first few days because I was in awe to be in the same room as her! LOL! For this course that I took I needed to submit to her a curruculum and she actually called my house! You should have seen me dancing around the house! I made this card for her, if you know your Bella stamps you would know that the Bella body doesn't match the Bella head! I used a head off of one stamp and the body of another to make my Super Penny! Penny Simkin has hair like my Bella that's why she needed the headchange!

Another card

This is a simple card, but I wanted the "Praying for you" to be the focus. I've been even busier than usual lately so I've been falling behind on my posts! My stamp room is under construction and it's been hard to put together a card! I will start painting Friday evening, I can't wait to get it all together and organized!
Have a great day!

A TKD Card

This is a birthday card from my kids to the Master at their Martial Arts club! I coloured the belts the colour that my kids real belts are! I was challenged to make a guy card, but I really like the way it turned out! MOD stands for Masters of discipline. They are not on the team, but would like to be one day. They just started at this new club in March, they LOVE it. It is much more hard core than their old club and they are learning so much. They go at least 4-6 times a week and it is a great workout for all of them. I hope the Master likes his card!

Who?? What?? PSF?? PSF=Pretend Stamping Friends. I've been away for a week visiting a PSF and I had the BEST time! A few years ago (around 3) there was a post on splitcoast about a little girl who had cancer. Many of us posted that we were praying for her. We sent cards to her and her family encouraging them and letting them know we were thinking about them. One day the little girl asked her mom if this latest card came from her pretend stamping friend! That's where the name came from. The little girl is doing great now and from that first post about 25 of us became the best of freinds. We chat daily about everything in our lifes, big and small, there is nothing we don't chat about! Last year I was able to meet a couple of them in real life in California and it was so fun! This past week we had a meet up in Ohio at Pam's house! It was so very fun! Pam is such a sweet heart! So kind, giving and just wonderful, she is super funny too! Altogether there were 8 of us! I laughed until I cried, discovered some stuff about myself (thanks Sally!) and had such a great time! Here are a few pictures! Thanks girls for a perfect time! I love you lots!

A colour challenge

Here is my card for KWwerner's colour challenge. This is a big one! her 50th challenge! I was featured as a favorite in her 49th challenge! What an honor to be picked out of so many wonderful cards!
