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.

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
HOP START
Oh, guess what else is going on...
IT'S OFFICIALLY SUMMER.
IT'S MY ANNIVERSARY.
Anyway... Here are a few images of the pages in the journal.





Each page has a little journal page insert:
