Bear Tie/ Prayer request

Sorry, I forgot to mention my cousins name is Justin.

Well I wanted to give an update on my cousin. He was working for a tree trimming company and had a log dropped on him. He is in pretty bad shape. He has 7 fractures in his spine and 1 in his neck and shoulder. He also fractured his skull and has some brussing and bleading on the brain. It sounds like it's going to be a long road ahead of him. We are not sure how much damage has been done at this point. I am asking for your prayers for him and my family. I thank you very much for your prayers.

This is a picture of my sons teddy bear. He wanted a tie for him so we used some of the 1 1/4 stripped grosgrain ribbon and a courdory brad.

Oh Steph, that is so sad for your cousin and all of you. You must all be so worried. What an awful thing to have had happen. Will keep you in our thoughts and prayers very often.
Love your sons bear and the tie is so cool.

This is the Easter card I made for my kids this year.  This is so fun.  The chicks are made from the Circle punch, itty bitty flower punch, the scallop circle punch, and the owl punch.  I made the grass using the new fringe scissors.  The clouds are done using a template and sponging soft sky ink.

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Flowering Fields

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!  
Today's card uses another stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog.  It's called flowering fields on page 12.  You can have this beautiful stamp set for free with a qualifying order.  I stamped some of the flowers with versa mark and embossed with white embossing powder.  The other ones were stamped in blackberry bliss.  What do you think of that ribbon?  The pool party glitter ribbon is in the Occasions catalog and it is AMAZING.  Most glitter ribbons can be difficult to work with but not this one.  It is so easy to work with and ties beautifully.  The sentiment is from the "First Sight" stamp set in the Occasions catalog.
Well that's about it for today.  I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend and enjoying the Super Bowl today.  
Happy Stamping!

Avant Garden

Hello stampers,

I'm back with some more coloring.  This is another card from my Challenge class last month.  I used the water color pencils on this card however I did not use any water.  I just simply used them like you would a colored pencil.  I love how this turned out. 
Here is a close up of the flower....
I used the gray pencil and the white pencil on the flowers and a little bit of green on the stem.  This stamp set is called Avant Garden and can be yours for free with a $50 order before tax and shipping.  This offer is only good until March 31 and only while supplies last so don't wait if there is something you had your eyes on.  You can check out all of the free sets by clicking on the links for Sale-a-bration on the right hand side of my blog.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for stopping by
