Howdy

Here's my sample for Weiman Wranglers, the digital stamps released by Pink Cat Studio for the Weiman family. Get all the details --> HERE. I could only read parts of their story, because it breaks my heart. Going through my husband's cancer fight last year made this a little too close to home, and we are exceedingly grateful that it wasn't our son with the cancer. I don't know how parents handle it. My heart goes out to this family.

A Worthy Cause


Pink Cat Studio is releasing these new digital stamps today to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation in honor of Ethan Weiman. Little Ethan passed away on July 12th from Neuroblastoma cancer.

By purchasing these digital stamps you will help brighten the day of a sick child as the money we raise will go toward making one of their dreams come true.

Please visit http://www.pinkcatstudio.com/Stamps/WeimanWranglers/WeimanWranglers.htm to purchase these digital stamps and help the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Billy Plays Soccer

Here's a card I made for Sporty Billy's release:
The soccer ball is cut out, popped up, and covered with crystal effects.


It's been one of those weeks. I worked for my interior design friend all day Tuesday, was home for 15 minutes, then left for Bible study and didn't get home until 11. Then Wednesday and yesterday, I spent nap time winning the batttle against an almost 3-year old who finally figured out how to climb out of his crib. So my stamping time has been crimped, and I have lots of google readering to catch up on.


Thanks for stopping by!


Supplies:
stamps - Sporty Billy
paper - soft sky, white, black, cogsmo (cosmo cricket)
ink - memento, copics, versamark
acc - black brads, nesties, CE, white ep

What is my problem?

I had a really good stamping session Sunday afternoon, and haven't stamped since, or really had the desire to. I don't know what's wrong with me lately, I used to stamp EVERY afternoon. The past month or so it just hasn't been happening. I still love it, and I REALLY love the collecting part, so hopefully I'll get back on track soon. So here's a card I made last week, it had been brewing in my head for a while:
Thanks for stopping by, hope you are having a great week!
Supplies:
stamps - owl journal box (unity), Polka Dot Basics (PTI)
paper - new leaf, lemon tart, white
ink - memento, copics, summer sunrise
