Some Not So Good News

I know I've been missing the past few days but I've been having some health issues.  After having an abnormal stress test, I had a heart catherization.  It appears I have one artery totally closed, one 70% closed and one on the back of my heart with 2 blockages.  I am scheduled to see a surgeon Tuesday to discuss by-pass surgery.  I would appreciate your prayers.

I did manage to finish this card for a friend's granddaughter's birthday.

This is a card base from Cricut Design Space and an image from Sassy Studio Designs.  I used Anna Griffin flourishes, flowers and embossing folders.  I hope she likes it.

Here is a close up of the image.
Thanks for stopping by today.  I'm not sure if I'll get anything done tomorrow but we'll see.  Thanks for your comments and prayers.  God Bless You!!!!  Peggy

Birthday Card For A Very Special Friend

Many of you know I moved in 2012 to Ringgold, GA to be close to my daughter as my husband had passed away in 2010.  I never knew this little town existed until my daughter married and moved here with her husband.  I didn't know anyone here except my daughter and her family.  I have a rather reserved personality, meaning it's kind of hard for me to get to know new people.  But fortunately for me, there were some wonderful people in my neighborhood who aren't like me. 

I got an invitation to a ladies' bible study where I met some great ladies.  I also became acquainted with the ladies in  my section of townhomes.  There are 4 townhomes in our particular section and there are 3 Peggys in it.  Can you believe that??   One of these ladies & I have become good friends and she had a birthday yesterday.  I made her this card and she was very pleased.


I used one of the Make It Now projects in Cricut Design Space.  It is an Anna Griffin Design.  I added some pearls and a AG sentiment .  Have I told you I love almost anything Anna Griffin.

Thank you for stopping by today.  We love your comments and visits.  God Bless You!!!  Peggy

PS:  I would appreciate your prayers today.  I have to visit a heart specialist after having an irregular stress test.

I Brake For Victorian

I'm new to hand stamped images (I've mostly used digistamps) but I'm loving these stamps from I Brake For Stamps.  The stamped lines are so crisp and easy to color.  For my card this week, I chose this Victorian Lamp.  I wanted to keep the feel of the card rather subtle so I didn't use bright colors when coloring the image.

The background paper is Anna Griffin Georgette Paper Stack.  I bought this paper a while back and because I thought it was so pretty, I haven't used it.  Anyone else like me?  I colored the image with Promarkers and put Glossy Accents on the lamp to give the effect of glass.  I'm afraid you can't see that in this picture .  I colored a paper doily, folded it and placed the lamp on it to give the impression of a tablecloth.  I like the vintage look of the card.

I Brake For Compassion

I made this card for a friend who is in the hospital with cancer.  I used two I Brake For Stamps sentiment stamps on this one.  The one on the front of the card is "Because You're Hurting" and the one on the inside is "Faith, Hope, Love".  I hope my friend and his wife will find some comfort when they get this card.  These stamps just seem to say what I wanted to say to them.

Baby Boy Card - Silhouette

Hi Everyone - a friend of mine is having a baby boy next month and a baby shower is being held for her at work this week.  So of course, I had to make a card to go along with the present.  And since my mojo still hasn't returned, I searched through my downloaded cards for my Silhouette and I found the card below.  It's a 3D Shadow Box card.  You really can't tell it in this picture but it has four different layers.




I think she'll like it!

Thank so much for stopping by today - we appreciate you! Please come back again soon!  God Bless You!  Donna

TEACHER'S GIFTS - Explore, Silhouette

Hi Everyone - This week at my son's school the students are taking what in my day of schooling was called "achievement tests."  The tests that Jacob will be taking this week are called "Georgia Milestones."  Jacob's teachers have worked really hard to try and make sure he and all their students are ready for the tests.  Believe me, Jacob has been stressed out in preparation for these tests.  

I personally think that teachers are underpaid and unappreciated for all that they do and have to put up with at school.  I try to show my appreciation for them at least once a month by sending little gifts to brighten their days. The gifts are inexpensive but they seem to appreciate them.  

With that in mind, I thought I would send the teachers a little pick me up this week.  I don't know about you, but I love the $1.00 bins at Michael's - especially when the items that I want to buy are on sale for half price.  So let's just say, I hit the jackpot getting a nice pick me up for little money.  I also bought gift bags at Hobby Lobby for half price.  I used my Explore to print my saying for the front of the bags and cut the frame out.


The saying says:  For you --- because you have gone the extra "mile" to make sure your students succeed on the "milestones."

I then used my Silhouette to cut out the carrier for the nail polish and file. Here is a picture of the cards, pencils, nail polish, and nail files that I included in the bags.



I hope they will enjoy this little treat.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  We appreciate your visits and comments.  Until another day, God Bless You!  Donna
