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).

Last FWF for January

Howdy everyone...Happy Friday.

It sure has been awhile since I've entered into FWF.  I've just been so busy with my hubby and his cancer surgery/recovery.  I've made a lot of cards and crafts but haven't had a chance to really blog.

For my card, I used Phyllis Harris' Your Love Blows Me Away.  I just love this sweet stamp.  Windy days and holding balloons.  I remember that as a kid.

I did something a little different and that was to keep all of the image EXCEPT the balloons on the same paper piece.  Now the balloons are actually attached with thread "strings".

Well thanks so much for visiting me.  I still have my fundraiser site going to help my hubby and I out to pay our bills since he has been out of work since September and he is only getting 50% of his income.  The donations really help us out in getting some of our bills paid.  Thank you so much in advance for your help.
