Get Well...Be Well...Live Well

The card below is being sent to someone who is beginning to succumb to cancer (as well as issues resulting from a compromised immune system). It would be so nice to be able to give a little health away to someone who really needs it. Instead, I only hope this card helps her smile.



Both stamps are from Unity Stamp Company. The primary image, the tree, is from a new set, "Little Sprout". Everything else is Stampin Up!

Making this card helped me reflect on my own life and what I did well or could have done better.

There are so many people and things in my life that bring me joy and help me live well. Here are only a few:

(1) Candace. She is such a wonderful young woman. She really LIVES the life she wants to see in the world (most of the time...lol). I look at her sometimes and become thankful of the hard times we lived through when she was wee.

(2) Dave. Very few folks get to see how comedic he can be. His expressions, disposition and (sometimes juvenile) antics. When we aren't stressed out by all the daily grind, we have so much fun, mostly because he brings laughter and smiles into my otherwise serious, pensive nature. I am happy to share my life with him.

(3) Laughter. Heartfelt laughter. I don't think I can laugh enough. It brings the most joy. I have a very good friend that I no longer work with (project cancelled) and he brought fun back to work because of his deep hearty laugh. HIS laugh alone brightens a room.

(4) Friends. My best memories are of the time I've spent with my friends.

(5) Kinky, Coma, Yello, and Clyde (my fury family). They are worth every fur ball rambling along the floor.

Big Birthday Celebration

Are you here having fun hopping along with 3GirlJAM in celebration of Julie's sister's big birthday year?  What a great little cyber party we're having!  (she's really a young thing, but she's having a great year)

Well, if not, you should be hopping along (I'll tell you why in a moment). There are some really wonderful birthday ideas from all of us on the design team...and including Julie's two girls, who are also having fun celebrating their aunt's birthday.

If you need to go back to the beginning, head over to the 3GirlJAM blog to get started.  Otherwise....


Here's my card in celebration her special year! I used blue crinkle ribbon from the newly released Red,White,Blue Bundle.It's such a nice shade of blue!  The white has bits of the red and blue in it (and I love the ribbon when it's like that)...and the red is also pretty awesome...like marachino cherries.  The little button in the center is from Pinque Peacock (love lady bugs!) and e…
