Get Well Wishes

I have a good friend who is suffering through some major pain issues, so I decided to make this card in hopes of cheering her up just a bit. The gems are actually a light pink but they look clear. I just hope she likes it and it puts a smile on her face if only for a second (she is having jaw pain so too much of a smile is not a good thing right now). *Hugs*

Congrats Class of 2012

Well, it is official, My son has now graduated high school! I am SO proud of him, as well as my niece who will graduate on Saturday Night. I am throwing them a party June 9th as they have grown up together being the best of buds so they will get a party together. I worked for hours tonight making this centerpiece but I am quite tickled with how it came out! I bought the cake pattern from Lyndsey's Stamp Stuff and the 2012 Rocks came from Shirley at, along with the tiny 2012 designs that are on the tags. Everything cut like butter and the only thing I wish were different is that I wish the cake pieces had the score lines already included, as it took more time than anything just doing the scoring! Either way I am pleased with the final result and glad I decided to attempt it! *Hugs* and Congrats to all of the Class of 2012 everywhere!!!!

RIP Jonathan Hartman!!!

My youngest son's close friend passed away yesterday in an auto accident. Jonathan was a wonderfully happy, always smiling young man (18). He was due to graduate from high school in less than 2 weeks, but The Lord called him home. He will be sadly missed by many. I wanted to send a sympathy card to the family, but wanted something simple, yet held the message I wanted to convey from myself and my son. As simple as this card is, it gave me all kinds of fits, but I hung in there and finally got it finished. I did straighten out the ribbon prior to putting it in the mail box this morning! *Hugs*

Mother's Day Card

I found this amazing free set of images and paper from Shirley's Cards ( ) and I created my Mom's Mother's Day Card from it. I am just loving the colors and the bling! The butterfly is one I made from a stamped embossed image and colored with my water color pen and perfect pearls. I just LOVE the look it gives! I hope mom enjoys it as must as I enjoyed making it! *Hugs* and Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's out there!
