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. 

Thank you for visiting with us today.  I hope you will go to I Brake For Stamps and look through all the products they have to offer.  If you see anything you like, be sure to use my code, Save10Peggy to save 10% off your purchase.  God Bless You!!!  Peggy
