Can You Help This Little Boy?

I just got an email about this little 8 year old boy named Trevor Wright. He was diagnosed with leukemia( t-cell leukemia) yesterday and was having his first chemo today. I have just finished 3 years of chemo so know firsthand what is ahead for this child! You can read his story here:
If you would like to make a card for him he would love to receive it! Thank you.

Feel Better Card

Just a simple little card that can be whipped up very quickly to have on hand when needed. The sentiment is a Cuddlebug  embossing folder I got with my machine. I have used this little guy so much! Entered into the challenge at  Thanks for popping by and hope you have found some inspiration!

Shaped Card

I love shaped cards! I made the castle card for my youngest GD a few months ago so now that her sister is turning 10 I had to do a shaped card for her as well. I decided on a birthday shaped card this time. It came out lovely I think! Myah is very girly and will love it. She always tells me what pretty cards I make her. I made the entire card (the ribbon roses were purchased)  with my fantastic Make The Cut software. This is a fantastic program and I can't imagine creating scrap pages or cards without it. If you don't have it definately check it out! Easy to learn and so much fun to use. If anyone is interested in the cut file for this card I am happy to share it. Email me and I will send it right out to you.

Bing Music Challenge Card

I made this card for a challenge on one of my forums. The theme was music. My MIL loved Bingo and apparently she was talking to me because the little message tag on the side says "music to my eyes". Bingo was "music to her eyes" and  this is what came out when I sat down to make the card. Definately a unique card. Thanks "Ma" for your inspiration! Thank you for taking a look - hopefully I have inspired you to create something wonderful!

Easter Bunny Card

Love this sweet little bunny from "From My Kitchen" cartridge.

Rolled Roses Card

Another card with rolled roses. Love making these, they are addictive! These have been smashed (very technical term) down after I rolled them and added a little glue here and there before dragging them through the glitter.

Castle Birthday Card

Made this card for my GD's 7th birthday. I put a picture of her in a gown costume inside the front doors. When she opened the doors up she said "was I there when you bought the card?". We laughed so hard.  I haven't made many shaped cards so far but they are fun to do. Hope you try one if you have stayed away from them! I use Make the Cut software for most of my card crafting. It's a fantastic program, please check it out if you don't have it.

Lucy Loves the Snow!

My little Lucy loves the snow! She was born a year ago in december but this is really her first fun filled winter in the snow! She thinks she is a snow plow the way she puts her face down in it and just pushes herself along. Love this picture of her!

Latest Card

Just made this card yesterday and love it. Love the soft feminine feel of it! It's going to a young lady that is having surger. Hope she likes it!

Cancer Update!

Finished my 4 weeks of chemo and I am officially still in remission! YEAH! Feeling good but get tired very easily still. That will take some time to get back to normal, if ever. I am so thankfull to be done with treatment and able to get back to living my life chemo free.  Will have my first chemo free scan in May and hopefully it will continue to be cancer free.

Rolled Rose Flowers

I LOVE paper flowers and keep trying new ideas on the internet. I cut my own spiral for these in different sized and spiral widths. I use a double pointed knitting needle with a little double sided tape on the tip to roll them, works great. I smash (very technical term) some of them down after I roll them then use diamond glaze dabbed (another very technical term) here and there. Lastly, I drag them through my glitter and let them dry. The leaves are cut from a file I have in Make The Cut. I like to give them some texture with my stylus or a crochet hook. I also added some branch cuts from a Martha Stewart punch.  Think they came out pretty! Also used stickles on one of them. If you haven't tried them yet you should give it a go, very easy and so pretty on a card or scrap page!

Almost Done!

I will be starting my LAST (hopefully) 4 weeks of chemo in 2 weeks. It's been a long 3 years and there were times I didn't know if I would be able to do it.  I had so much support and love from friends, family and my church family. I will have a CAT scan and blood work next week and see my dr. for what I pray is good news before the first chemo treatment.  Will update my blog as soon as I can.
