About Me

My photo
I am a stay-at-home mom. I have been married to my handsome and wonderful husband for over 14 years. Right now he's battling stomach/esophagus cancer. So I do my best to craft when I can. I have two wonderful boys. My oldest, Garett, is 24 and served 5 years in the Navy. He's been home since the beginning of the year (2014). We are very proud of him. My youngest, "DJ", is 13 and in the 8th grade. I have two Border Collie mix dogs (Koda and Rugu), one Calico cat (Hydie), one orange Tabby cat (Bosley), one Tea Cup Chihuahua (Gigi...I LOVE her sooo much), a Chiweinnie (Lily....sweetest dog ever), and a Jack Russell/Chihuahua (Connor....AAALL boy).

Resist the Challenge? NOT

Another Friends with Flair Friday Post...

A schoolmate of mine that lives in California, likes to have challenges every now and then.  This time the challenge became Heat Embossing Resist Technique...and only because I asked her if she's ever done it before.  So her sister-in-law wanted in on the fun as well.  Here is my creation:

I had so much fun making the card, I decided to make a matching tag to go with it.

Stamps- Unity (Vintage Doily - Doilies, small phrase, Itty Bitty enjoy explore believe)

Misc- Offray Ribbon, Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page, Distressed Ink (Worn Lipstick) Rubber Stampede Dye Ink (Purple and Yellow), White Embossing powder.
