New Release at All Dressed Up Stamps--It's POOL TIME!

 It feels so good to finally have some energy to color and post images/cards on my Blog again!!!  Chemo really takes it out of you but I'm gradually feeling better.
This month one of the new releases over at All Dressed Up is called POOL READY- I just love the sleek lines she has!  I found out that I had a lot more ocean/sea papers and embellies than I thought so did some layering using papers, heavy textured cardstock (sand dune, sand dollar, and lobster), some paper lace for the splashing waves along with some stickles, and some cloud accents. On the inside, I like to finish the cards out so some beachy paper, with a cardstock textured sentiment and a cute little lobster.
We also have a month long Challenge going on where you use an ADU image for your entry.  It's crazy that you might not have one but, there are always some freebies to be found in the store.  I can't wait to see your creations!

All you need is FRIENDS over at ALL DRESSED UP!

We have a Challenge that began over at All Dressed Up this past Saturday, the 15th.  It runs for a whole month into July so plenty of time to get your entries in!!  We sure want to get inspired by all your creations--we would like you to use an image from ADU and if you don't have any yet, there are plenty of freebies in the Shop.
This was a special card that I used an image called Summer Tortoises --I love how they hitch along on a free ride, like they're helping friends out.  On the inside of the card, you can see that I made it into a friendship card.  As I've been battling a health scare recently, my friends have stood by my side and have sure cheered me up when I was down.  The main image is matted with kraft paper, then pink gingham, and then a gorgeous green print.  I used 3 colors of Novo drops as corner accents.  On the inside, I used a coordinating paper with a sentiment printed from my computer, edged with distressed Inks and again the Novo dots. Thank you for looking at my site-I hope you will return again and again.  I appreciate all your comments.

Everything Changed in April....

My apologies for the lack of posts during the months of April and May.  My attentions had to turn suddenly to my Health and what turned out to be a Cancer scare.  The first part of May, I reacted quickly to the Drs. finding cancer of the uterus with a "tag" of a rare MMMT cancer.  A complete radical hysterectomy was done and as of now, I'm cancer free.  We are going to follow up with a regime of Chemotherapy and radiation because this rare cancer is sneaky and likes to hide.
I appreciate the continued support of my blog and I'm looking forward to getting back to creativity with all my Design Teams.
Thank you for your prayers!  I love you all.
