An American Soldier

If you have not thanked a soldier, do it today at This website is our service project for Youth Conference this year. We will be making 3 thank you cards each at our conference in Asheville, NC. If you would like to send cards with ours, get them to me before June 9th. Thanks for remembering OUR TROOPS. I know that they think of us everyday.

I have sold some of the great discount cards that I have! I have only 3 left. Get yours today and save at 31 different places where you spend your money anyway. Email me so I can hold one for you.

Somber weekend. We lost a dear church family member this weekend. Lawrence Byers lost his battle with cancer Friday night. Can I just say that I HATE cancer! Don't you too? Give to Relay for Life and lets find a cure so that nobody else has to lose a loved one to this dreadful disease.

Stampin Up Blue Bayou is the base for this one. Le Jardin designer paper is an added layer behind some off white textured cardstock on which I stamped from an old SU set named Little Inspirations the sentiment in Old Olive. The scallop punch has a Friendly Flower stamped in Soft Sky with a rhinestone added. There are a couple of olive eyelets on the mini book mark. I used So Saffron ink to color in the flowers around the little lamb with an eye shadow applicator and then colored the lamb with a white Souffle marker. A little soft yellow rick rack also added to give another texture. It's a sweet little card for a friend to remind her that she is in God's care.
Bonjour friend!
Le Jardin is the designer paper by Stampin Up and I used SU Friendly Flowers to stamp the flowers in Soft Sky and So Saffron and the "friend" sentiment in Soft sky on the flip side of the same designer paper. I used my circle punches to punch out the flowers and added rhinestones to both.

Rainy weather is good for staying in and creating! Of course, the boys are screaming for Dairy Queen. Oh well, I must suffer through a trip to DQ!
Do you have your discount card for the coming year yet? I have some great kids at my church that are in the Blacksburg Marching Band and they are selling the best cards right now for only $10! Some of the merchants are Dairy Queen, Sonic, Broncos, Taco Bell, Starmax,Cinnabon, Pizza Inn, Aegean, McDonald's, Burger King, Bruster's and many more for a total of 31 merchants! These cards are fantasic! I can hook you up. Let me know asap if you would like to get one. I don't know when the deadline is.

Bakerella on Martha Stewart today!

This is the best website for the cutest cupcake ideas! I just watched her on Martha and had to share this with my friends. I have 2 cards to post but I have to take the pictures so I will do that later today. Come on back later. Hint.... I am loving the new SU papers that I got last month.
