About Me

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).

Too Beautiful For Earth

FWF

I fell in love with this stamp the second I saw it.  But I definitely do not want to have to use it as a sympathy card anymore in the future.  My neighbor that lives across the street lost both of his parents within 10 days of each other.  In fact, his mother passed away the day of his father's viewing service.  So it had been a very tragic week for him.  So I immediately started working on a card for them.  I just LOVE Phyllis Harris stamps.  Her images are amazing.


I included a close up picture so you can see the sparkle in her wings. :)
Thank you for visiting and have a great weekend.
