A Sad card

My cousin and his wife had a memorial for their daughter who passed away in-utero. Zoe was gestationally 6 months old but unfortunately she didn't survive. I made this card for her family. I used the SU pinking heart border punch (118072)to accent the DSP, the rest of the materials were non-SU items. The Himawari angel baby was a fitting image though.

It was a touching ceremony and the most touching thing was a letter that Zoe's older sister Caitlin wrote to her telling her of all of the things they would have done and what she would have taught and shown her.

It is never easy to lose anyone that you love but this is especially heartbreaking.

I hope my card brought them a little comfort, but I know that nothing can replace the loss that they've suffered, but hopefully time will heal their pain and that they will be able to have another baby soon.

As a passing thought, we all know that life is so unpredictable so while we're here, let's enjoy every moment that we have with each other.

God Bless you All and thanks for coming to visit my little blog when you can!

An August co-worker birthday card

My yearly goal to make handmade birthday cards for each of my co-workers is almost complete. I have to make 4 for August, of course 3 of them will be delayed, but oh well, I tried.

Anyway, this is the first card for our clerk Melanie- her's was a little delayed, but at least I got one done.

I used the SU set Printed Petals (120444) to create the focal images and I used the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Well Scripted stamp set which is unfortunately no longer available. :(

I used a non-SU border punch for the daisy chain and added stickles to the center of each daisy.

I have to work on the other 3 this week so I'll hopefully be posting them soon.

Until later, take care and God Bless~


Hello everyone!

There are terrific items in this catalog, I should be receiving my order today and I hope to post some projects soon.
I really love the elegant designs on the Deck the Halls DSP (120810, pg. 18) and I love the new glimmer brads- perfect for adding a blingy touch to your handmade flowers!(page 36)
I also like the vintage Christmas stamp set Bells and Boughs (121742- clear set $14.95, pg. 19) or if you don't want to get that entire set then you can get the A la Carte stamp Christmas postcard (121428, pg. 41) for only $9.95

I really like that SU now has these A la Carte stamps where you can get one stamp for an affordable price!

Of course for my Christmas cards and tags I REALLY stocked up on Cherry Cobbler card stock and Always Artichoke card stock!

I also got the new Extra Large decorative label punch (12090, pg.25) to add that special touch to handmade cards and tags. It also coordinates with the stamp set Tags til Christmas (121169, pg. 24)

There's so much more that I want to get but that's a sampling of what I've bought so far!
